New Beers

21st Amendment Brew Free or Die
BREW FREE! OR DIE IPA is brewed with some serious west coast attitude. This

aromatic golden IPA starts with three different hops to the nose, quickly balanced
by a solid malt backbone supporting the firm bitterness. Their top selling beer at
the pub, this IPA starts big and finishes clean leaving you wanting more.

Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Stout 22oz
Aged for three months in Wild Turkey® Bourbon barrels, this luxurious stout has a

deep ebony hue and a beautiful mahogany head. The woody, vanilla-like notes
imparted by the barrels mingle with aromas of fresh baked bread, toffee, and
espresso and envelop the rich chocolate and roasted barley flavors with a fine
bourbon character.

Anderson Valley Summer Solstice
This Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale is a slightly sweet, malty session beer with a

creamy mouth feel and clean finish. With hints of caramel in the nose and a touch
of spice, it’s become affectionately known as “cream soda for adults”. The unique
flavors and superior drinkability make for the ultimate refreshment on a hot
summer day.

Ballast Point Sculpin
Deep gold with clear, subtle carbonation. This IPA showcases bright flavors and

aromas of apricot, peach, mango & lemon. Piney citrus hops presence in the nose
and a rich malt backbone. The flavors mix and mingle on the tongue in a way that
you can't wait for the next sip to see how it would taste. Excellent American IPA.

Spiked Seltzer Variety 12 pack
SpikedSeltzer is made exclusively from purified water and natural ingredients. The fresh fruit flavors infused in SpikedSeltzer are derived from cold-pressed citrus essence from a variety of fruits. Fermentation of this citrus essence and sugar naturally produces 6% alcohol. The result is clean and clear without the sugary sweetness of wine or the heaviness of beer. 

Ballast Point Sculpin Grapefruit
This Grapefruit Sculpin is the latest take on the signature IPA. Some may say there

are few ways to improve Sculpin’s unique flavor, but the tart freshness of grapefruit
perfectly complements the IPA’s citrusy hop character. Grapefruit’s a winter fruit,
but this easy-drinking ale tastes like summer.

Baxter Stowaway IPA
Bold, complex flavors with a solid malt backbone and assertive hop profile, along

with cold conditioning, give this beer its crisp, clean, hoppy finish. Deep amber-
to-orangish in color, Stowaway pours with a nice, creamy head; a huge hop aroma
of citrus, pine and grapefruit notes; and a big, complex, and intense hop flavor
from the 5 different hop varieties and double-dry-hopping procedure used in
making this beer. The malt flavor up-front turns dry and crisp; Stowaway is full-
bodied but with a dry finish and pleasant, long-lasting, hop aftertaste. This I.P.A.
definitely leaves you wanting more.

Bud Light Lime-A-Rita Fiesta Variety 18 Pack

Coronado Orange Avenue with Beer

dry semi sweet with a light to medium bodied spices really coat the palate,
drinkable for sure especially in warmer weather.

Coronado Idiot IPA 22oz
Idiot IPA is an all-natural India pale ale, brewed with over three pounds of hops

per barrel. This unfiltered “San Diego IPA” has been “known to reduce even the
most intelligent to a blithering idiot.”

Coronado Coffee Stout 22 oz
Just as the iconic Coronado Bay Bridge connects their island home to the mainland,

this java-tinged dry stout, brewed using dark roasted coffee beans from a local San
Diego artisanal roaster, provides a bridge uniting craft beer drinkers with CBC’s
rich, flavorful SoCal brewing traditions.

Dogfish Head Midas Touch

vessels from the tomb of King Midas. Somewhere between wine and mead, Midas
will please the chardonnay and beer drinker alike.

Dogfish Head Namaste
A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-

cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst

Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron
An unfiltered, unfettered, unprecedented brown ale aged in handmade wooden

brewing vessels. The caramel and vanilla complexity unique to this beer comes
from the exotic Paraguayan Palo Santo wood from which these tanks were crafted.

wine-making communities.

Dubhe IPA
Toasted, chocolaty dark malts align with an astronomical amount of hops.

Foolproof Brewing Barstool Ale
Not too malty, not too hoppy, Barstool is designed for a night out with your

friends. This flagship beer is handcrafted with the freshest ingredients, including
two-row barley and specialty malts. A blend of English and Czech hops top off this
delicious golden ale, which can be enjoyed for hours on end.

Great Divide Rumble
RUMBLE IPA is an American IPA with subtle nuance. Brewed with heavy handed

additions of Pacific Northwest hops, this beer is gently aged on French and
American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness,
vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus. Very inspiring.

Illusive Traveller Grapefruit
Illusive Traveler is a deceptively delicious wheat beer made with real grapefruit.

This refreshing take on a Shandy delivers a bright and satisfying citrus aroma and
flavor, then quickly disappears, leaving you searching for another.

Jack's Abby Mass Rising
They are writing their own story by fueling the fire surrounding extra hoppy beers.

kettle, hopbock and dry hopping processes. Together, they have taken a journey to
redefine the term 'lager.'

Not Your Father's Root Beer
The award-winning “Not Your Father’s Root Beer” achieved a 95 rating from Beer

Advocate and is a very popular choice at several Chicagoland bars. Small Town’s
personally delivered “Not Your Father’s Root Beer” kegs consistently sell out at
taverns across the Chicago area.

Ommegang Game of Thrones 750ml
Push through the thick brambles and present yourself to the Three-Eyed Raven.

Abiding in the shadows of the Three-Eyed Raven lies this deceptive Dark Saison.
The ominous Three-Eyed Raven inspired us to brew a Dark Saison ale, a hybrid
style open to brewer’s imagination. In the end it is neither a pure saison nor your
typical dark beer, but instead a delectable blend that both deceives and thrills the

Palm Breeze Mandarin Sparkling Spritzer
One of the "Seven Wonders of Barbados," the pineapple has been used as a symbol

of hospitality and celebration for centuries

Palm Breeze Ruby Red Citrus Sparkling Spritzer
Grapefruit, or Citrus paradisi, was originally called "The Forbidden Fruit" when

discovered in the Caribbean (eat your heart out, Adam and Eve). But now you can
enjoy its sinfully refreshing taste all day long and into the night.

Stone Ruination
It's back! Stone Ruination IPA was the first full-time brewed and bottled West Coast

double IPA on the planet. As craft beer has evolved over the years, so too have
techniques for maximizing hop flavors and aromas. For the second incarnation of
this groundbreaking India pale ale, they've employed dry hopping and hop
bursting to squeeze every last drop of piney, citrusy, tropical essence from the
hops that give this beer its incredible character.

Stone Saison
Lemon zest, grains of paradise, lemon thyme and lavender harvested in Southern

California fields, including their own at Stone Farms, provide citrus and floral
character along with a subtle, tantalizing spice. Thanks to the infusion of fresh West
Coast ingredients, this isn’t your everyday saison.

Sierra Nevada Hop Hunter
Sierra Nevada Hop Hunter IPA will feature hop oil from distilled hops. The idea,

which Sierra Nevada hasn't fully revealed, will extract pure hop oil from mature
cones, to create an IPA that smells unlike any other IPA you've had. Aroma is key.

Tank 7 Ale
Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment that’s just a bit persnickity. At

Boulevard they have fermenter number seven, the black sheep of their cellar
family. Ironically, when their brewers were experimenting with variations on a
traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, the perfect combination of elements came
together in that very vessel. You could call it fate, but they called it Tank 7, and so
it is. Beginning with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the
flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.

Uinta Detour Double IPA
Detour blazes the trail for fresh and bold Double IPAs. Four varieties of hops

combine to step up the flavor profile. A hoppy adventure that finishes dry. Big in
alcohol and character.

New Wines:

A to Z Rose
The 2014 A to Z Oregon Rosé leads with aromas of strawberries, tangerine,

watermelon and grenadine with hints of thyme and hibiscus then opens to reveal
plum, apricot and more strawberry notes. Clean, balanced and approachable with
generous fruit, the crisp and juicy A to Z Rosé integrates excellent texture with firm
acidity finishing long and pretty.

Arsonist Chardonnay
With incredible aromas of pineapple and papaya mingling with French oak and

butterscotch, this wine just beckons to be tasted. Flavors of tropical fruit and
caramel tantalize with notes of vanilla and barrel spice. The Arsonist Chardonnay is
big, creamy, yet welcoming in its nuanced integration.

Aromas of lime, melon, and guava mingle with herbal notes. Punchy citrus &

guava flavors roll out to a long lingering finish. This wine shows great persistence

complex, fruity with scents of morello cherry; it is dry and full to the palate, full-
bodied and persistent.

refreshing wine that recalls lemon zest, peach and green apple. Fresh acidity gives
it a clean, bright finish.

Chateau St. Jean Bijou Chardonnay
Crisp and elegant, driven by a core of forward fruit flavors with subtle nuances of

French oak. The wine goes through malolactic fermentation giving it a rich texture
balanced by bright acidity. The lightly oaked profile of the Bijou Chardonnay makes
it very food friendly pairing well with a wide range of dishes.

Duck Commander Chardonnay
Our Chardonnay offers rich tropical fruit aromas with hints of lemon and crisp

apple laced around the complex nose. The palate is vibrant and full of pear, melon
and apple pie with a silky, creamy finish.

Franciscan Merlot
Napa Valley, CA- Incredibly rich aromas, with intense blackberry and black cherry,

accented by vanilla-toasted oak with hints of cassis. Supple and ripe blackberry
flavors, black cherry and hints of toasted oak and vanilla fill the mouth with a full
mid-palate and a long, round finish.

Flip Flop Chardonnay

Meadowsweet is a delicious blend of rose wine and grapefruit.  An appealing, pure

pink wine with a shimmer of darker pink.  The tangy aroma of fresh grapefruit
melds irresistibly with the smooth flavor of rose wine to deliver a vibrant,
refreshing treat.

Menage a Trois Midnight Blend
For this special wine, Ménage à Trois wanted to create a truly uninhibited blend—

something deeper, darker, and bolder than ever before. In true Ménage à Trois
style, they decided that ‘more is more,’ and crafted a blend of not three—but four
—grapes! Merlot adds a plush, velvety texture, Cabernet Sauvignon offers elegance
and power, Petite Sirah lends inky intensity and Petit Verdot imparts a deep violet
color and concentrated fruit. To round out the flavors the wine is aged on French
and American oak. The result is a wine that leaves an indelible impression. It’s
mysterious and dark, soft and sensual—just like Midnight.

New Liquors

Bartender's Horchata Liqueur
Attractive aromas and flavors of spicy bread and rice puddings with satiny sweet medium to full body and a creamy vanilla frosted cinnamon raisin cake finish. Absolutely delicious! Pairs well with chocolate desserts, cakes, and Mexican food.

Bartender's Awesome Orange Cream
An old-time bartender moved to the central part of Florida where he was impressed by the orange groves in the area. Inspired by this view, he whipped up a wonderful blend of real dairy cream, vodka, and all natural orange. He served this cocktail to his friends in his bar and they said it was “awesome”. There was born “Awesome Orange Cream”.

Bartender's Pina Colanda
Years ago, a heroic New York City fireman retired to Old San Juan after many years “on the job”. His passion became inventing tropical drinks at a local hotel bar. He soon created the perfect blend of coconut, pineapple, dark Caribbean rum, and a touch of fresh dairy cream. Thus, he continued his previous career of putting out fires. But now, he only “saved” sunburned vacationers from being thirsty.

Bartender's Strawberry Daiquiri
On a beautiful beach on the coast of Cuba, a young bartender created a refreshing cocktail made of finest island rum, fresh lime juice, and a dash of sugar which became wildly popular as the “Daiquiri”. One day, a beautiful lady suggested he add some of her fresh strawberries to enhance his wonderful cocktail. The results were magical. The “Strawberry Daiquiri” became wildly popular. And, they lived happily ever after.

Grand Ten Distilling South Boston Irish Whiskey
South Boston Irish Whiskey is our homage to the strong Irish-American heritage of South Boston. South Boston Irish Whiskey has a pleasant nose of banana and hazelnut, which transitions smoothly into a malt sweetness with notes of honey, citrus peel, and cinnamon, finishing low and slow with smooth oak. The traditional Irish method favors malted barley in the mash bill and copper in the pot still, lending this whiskey a soft, creamy body, perfect for a long night of slow sips.

Grand Ten Distilling Craneberry
Cape Cod meets Sonoma Valley with this ode to the Massachusetts cranberry. We start with a bold, overproof white rum, which is infused in our still with heaps of Cape Cod cranberries and finished in Cabernet Sauvignon casks. The rich, molasses-based rum serves as a solid foundation for the play between the tartness of cranberries and the dry, tannin-like finish of oaked wine. Craneberry adds an elegant layer to champagne, cocktails, or may be enjoyed neat after a hearty meal.

Grand Ten Distilling Wire Works Gin
Wire Works Special Reserve is a unique product that bridges the gap between the citrus brightness of our signature gin and the soft, sweet notes of whiskey. We begin with a special mixture of the botanicals used to create our American Gin. The resulting spirit is then aged in used American bourbon barrels and blended to produce a gin that possesses the distinctly soft textures and caramel-vanilla flavors of bourbon.

Grand Ten Distilling Rare Bird Rum
We begin with pure blackstrap molasses, add a blend of wild New England yeast, and send it through our all-copper, small-batch still. The resulting spirit is matured in charred American white oak barrels, lending the rum a mild bourbon-like character.

Mr Boston Ginger Brandy
Wonderful ginger brandy just in time for the fall season.

St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
If you're a fan of cocktails, you've definitely come across some mixed with Saint Germain liqueur. And if you tried these mixed drinks, you're aware of this liqueur's bright and fragrant flavor. The liqueur is made from elderflower, a small, white starry flower that blooms through the spring and summer. In Europe, the flower is used in many foods and drinks, but in the U.S. it's gaining popularity in the form of this liqueur.
