From 21st Amendment Brewery:
Brew Free! Or Die IPA (Blood Orange); ABV 7%: 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. Our top selling beer at the pub, this IPA starts big and finishes clean leaving you wanting more.

From Ace Premium Craft Cider:
Pineapple; ABV 5%: Inspired by the House Family’s annual visit to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands our Pineapple cider is an ideal drink for tropical hot and humid climates. Our signature drink the Hawaii 5-0 is a mix of Ace Pineapple cider, coconut rum, ice and a garnish of fresh pineapple. This original cider is perfect for a backyard BBQ, or Bacon dishes.
Pumpkin; ABV 5%: First produced in the fall of 2010 our Ace Pumpkin Cider is a seasonal favorite. Its unique orange color and full rich flavor will leave you craving more. This seasonal Cider is released after Labor Day and available throughout fall. Ace Pumpkin is perfect for the pumpkin lover that just can’t get enough. Ideal for Halloween and Thanksgiving this cider pairs well with or beef. Our pumpkin cider also makes a great snakebite when mixed with a heavy lager.

From Anderson Valley Brewing Company:
Blood Orange Gose; ABV 4.2%: Our Blood Orange Gose is a tart, refreshing wheat ale that is kettle-soured with lactobacillus and brewed with sea salt and coriander. However, unlike traditional versions of the style, ours features liberal additions of blood oranges during fermentation. This imparts tangy citrus notes that complement the champagne-like flavors, creating a complex and sessionable ale perfect for any occasion.
G&T Gose; ABV 4.2%: Reminiscent of a classic cocktail, our G&T Gose showcases botanical flavors and aromas of lemon peel, juniper, lemongrass, and grains of paradise. With a juicy lemon-lime tartness and slightly peppery finish, we’ve given the gose style a unique spin that we’re sure you’ll enjoy.

From Argus Cidery:
Ginger Perry; ABV 4.5%: Ginger Perry delivers a dry pear palate with a tart bite, finishing bright and a bit spicy at the end. Unpasteurized and unfiltered, Ginger Perry is free of back sweetening and added sugars. Best enjoyed ice cold. Can and draft offerings available.

From Avery Brewing Company:
El Gose; ABV 4.5%: A timeless, traditional tart gose (goes-uh) with its zesty and salty disposition is brightened by a tangy citrus twist. A bier for every día!
The Real Peel IPA; ABV 6.3%: Inspired by a summer’s day and crafted to crush year-round, our IPA twists real tangerine peel and citrusy hops into this juicy experience. It’s the real deal!

From Alesatian Brewing Co.:
Hop Sneeze Gen 2 IPA; ABV 7%: Intense citrus and tropical fruit aromatics blend well with the light malty sweetness. Cheers to Hunter!
Sista From Anotha Mista; ABV 7.3%: Using Australian Ella, half-sister of better known Galaxy, this IPA creates a huge bouquet of floral and tropical notes, with a dry and crisp finish, leaving more to be desired

From Alewerks Brewing Company:
Unrequited IPA; ABV 8.3%: Double Red IPA. New for 2017. One of the public’s very first chances to sample this IPA!
Weekend Lager; ABV 4.8%: This particular beer is known as Weekend Lager because it’s what we enjoy when we want to kick back. We took ten years to brew our first Lager and hope it was worth the wait. Made in the Munich Helles style and unfiltered like all our beer, it’s a little spicy but wholly smooth.

From Bell’s Brewery:
Two Hearted IPA; ABV 7%: Brewed with 100% Centennial hops from the Pacific Northwest and named after the Two Hearted River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula,this IPA is bursting with hop aromas ranging from pine to grapefruit from massive hop additions in both the kettle and the fermenter. Perfectly balanced with a malt backbone and combined with the signature fruity aromas of Bell’s house yeast, this beer is remarkably drinkable and well suited for adventures everywhere.

From Charm City Meadworks:
Basil Lemongrass Cider; ABV 6.9%: Balancing fresh herbs and subtle honey, nothing says delicious better than this signature infused mead. Grab a can and enjoy the finer things.

From DC Brau Brewing Company:
On the Wings of Armageddon; ABV 9.2%: OTWOA is a single hop beer utilizing Falconers Flight. Brewed with just enough Pale malt, Cara-60, CaraPils and Malted wheat to carry the intense hop character onto the pallet. At first glance, it has an orange hue in the glass with a viscous, rocky head that refuses to dissipate. Upon first sniff there are dominant aromas of citrus, white grapes and grapefruit with light bread and biscuit notes. After the first sip we taste a mellow bitterness that only grows as more is consumed. Moderately carbonated, deceptively smooth, refreshingly dry and extremely heady for a beer at 9.2% ABV. OTWOA exhibits all the necessary traits to be revered as a world class Imperial IPA.
Oktoberfest; ABV 5.5%: DC Brau’s Oktoberfest has a classic light amber to copper hue that is topped with intense German malt aromas of toasty bread, light caramel and faint biscuit. It’s supported by a traditionally light Noble hop aroma that complements the rich malty notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a medium body that gives it a pleasing richness. The hops perfectly compliment the dominant malt character to form a very refreshing Oktoberfestbier that can be enjoyed all thru the fall months.

From Dogfish Head:
90 Minute DIPA; ABV 9%: Continual hopping provided a beautiful balance to our Imperial IPA – allowing us to add a foolhardy amount of hops throughout the boil without making 90 Minute crushingly bitter. With rich pine and fruity citrus hop aromas and a strong malt backbone, 90 Minute IPA created pungent, unapologetic flavor that led Esquire to call it “perhaps the best IPA in America.”

From Epic Brewing Company:
Tart and Juicy Sour IPA; ABV 4.7%: We’ve combined the clean, puckering tartness of kettle souring with an abundance of juicy, citrus-driven hops to create a beer that’s the best of both worlds – Tart n’ Juicy Sour® IPA.

From Escutcheon Brewing:
Slip Angle New England IPA; ABV 7%: This hazy American IPA is generously hopped to produce a juicy hop aroma. Hops include Warrior, Simcoe, Citra, Mosaic and Hull Melon.
Plimsol IPA; ABV 6.7%: Plimsoll is our flagship IPA. Foreign and domestic malts build the backbone of this copper-colored elixir while copious additions of three hop varieties leave it with clean, crisp, citrusy aroma.ᅠ Tried-and-true, it’s the perfect beer to end the day.

From Evolution Craft Brewing Company:
Hops Limon; ABV 6.8%: Made for hot days and good food. The lemon/lime is subtle, but certainly present.

From Great Divide Brewing Co.:
Titan IPA; ABV 7.1%: TITAN IPA is a big, aggressively hopped India Pale Ale brewed for hop disciples. It starts out with piney hop aromas and citrus hop flavors, and finishes with a nice rich, malty sweetness that is balanced with crisp hop bitterness.

From Great Lakes Brewing Company:
Steady Rollin Session IPA; ABV 4.8%: Inspired by the Great Lakes region (our big backyard), our single hop Session IPA is brewed for days when you can only guess the time based on where the sun sits in the sky.

From Jack’s Hard Cider:
Peach; ABV 5%: Jack’s Peach Cider is light with fresh peach aromas and refreshing fresh fruit flavors. This blend of freshly pressed Adams County applesand peaches is quickly becoming a favorite.
Dry Green Original; ABV 5.5%: Dry, crisp and refreshing; like biting into the perfect apple.

From Lost Rhino Brewing Co.:
Flanders Red Sour; ABV 5.8%: Red to brown in color, this sour beer is moderate in lactic acidity, with a touch of acetic acid, and notes of both green and candied apples.
Faceplant; ABV 6.8%: A strong, malty backbone balances the mountain of whole cone hops we pack into our American Style IPA. Moderate grapefruit bitterness and herbal aromas take your pallet for a ride.

From Ocelot Brewing Company:
Therapy Demands IPA; ABV 6.2%: The first sip takes you to a complimentary continental breakfast featuring perfectly ripe Honeydew and Cantaloupe. It’s so fresh and invigorating, you take another sip (gulp), the soft body envelopes your mouth, you close your eyes, demands are met.

From Oskar Blues Brewery:
Blue Dream IPA; ABV 6.43%: A Metamodern IPA conceived of hand selected hops from down under. Malt barley and red wheat combine to create a clean malt backbone with foolproof flavor and mouthfeel to support the main act of Enigma, Vic Secret, Ella, Topaz and Galaxy hops. The hops strum juicy and sweet aromas with headline notes of passion fruit, raspberries, pineapple and citrus. This straight-up strain is Oskar Blues IPA (6.43% ABV). To each their own til we go home.

From Old Ox Brewery:
Hoppy Place IPA; ABV 6.5%: Our interpretation of a West Coast style IPA! Very hop forward and deliciously unbalanced. Pine and citrus notes ride the wave of Centennial, Amarillo and Citra hops culminating in a delightfully dry finish. A pint of this will surely take your to your Hoppy Place! Westward Ho!
Funky Face Mango Sour; ABV 4.1%: The Funky Face series is a collection of specialty beers that explore the tart and sour side of craft brewing. Second up in the series is our dry hopped mango sour ale. This beautifully simple, and refreshingly tart American Sour Blonde Ale is infused with sweet mango and dry hopped with tropical Galaxy hops. There is no better elixir for beating the summer swelter!

From Potter’s Craft Cider:
Farmhouse Dry; ABV 8.5%: Pale gold and effervescent with pronounced fruit aroma hinting of peach and melon. Don’t let the heady nose fool you – with no residual sugars, the flavor is crisp, tart, and exceptionally dry. Uniquely refreshing with a crisp finish that pairs well with a variety of foods including pork, duck, wild game, and aged cheeses. Sold in 750mL bottles.

From Solace Brewing Company:
Suns Out Hops Out; ABV 4.7%: Crisp easy drinking Session IPA. Brewed with Citra and Mosaic hops.

From Schlafly Beer:
Grapefruit IPA; ABV 5%: We like to make the distinction that this a fruit beer- not a fruit-flavored beer- whose wort is mixed with pounds of grapefruit puree to allow the sugar to ferment out, leaving the tropical aromas of the fruit. We choose to use American Chinook, Cascade and Citra hops for their distinct citrus and floral attributes, and American ale yeast that brings a layered fullness to the beer, making this dry-hopped IPA notable for its bold flavor, tart characteristics, and approachable hoppiness.
Hard Apple Cider; ABV 7.2%: Schlafly Hard Apple Cider is just the right balance of dry, crisp apple flavor with a bit of sweetness in the finish. This is a great beverage akin to a champagne and not as sweet as some of the ciders on the market today. We use a blend of three different cultivars to get the right balance of tartness and sweetness in this cider. Enjoy!

From Victory Beer:
Dirtwolf DIPA; ABV 8.7%: Wildly assertive, intentionally untamed and dangerously satisfying, DirtWolf Double IPA is the culmination of Victory’s double IPA series experiment with whole flower American-grown hops. With two-row German malts and a well-balanced combination of whole flower Citra, Chinook, Simcoe and Mosaic hops, this 8.7% abv brew blends the powerful citrus aroma and fruity flavors, with the piney, earthy and mildly floral characteristics found in these intriguing hop varieties.

From Wyndridge Farm:
Crafty Cranberry Cider; ABV 5.5%: Crafty Cranberry Cider is a more sophisticated beverage – crafted in the spirit of a traditional Champagne-style hard cider. Crafty Cranberry Cider leaves out excessive amounts of candy-like sweeteners that some other ciders add. Crafty Cranberry is made with local Pennsylvania pressed apples, yeast and real cranberry juice. The result is a fresh, clean, cranberry-hard cider.
Dry Hopped Cider; ABV 5.5%: Wyndridge Farm Crafty Hopped Cider is a perfect blend of crisp apples and quality hops, creating a unique beverage experience. We believe in keeping it simple, by using locally pressed apples, yeast and hops. No excessive amounts of candy-like sweeteners added. The result is a fresh, clean, semisweet, hopped cider.
