Pretty Things Our Finest Regards

Product - Pretty Things Our Finest Regards
Self-Defined Style: 
Barleywine
Strength (ABV): 
12.1% ABV

Ever since brewing in England, Dann has dreamed of making a barley-focused beer using the malts of Yorkshire (and never hesitates to plug his favorite: Thomas Fawcett & Sons). The American version of a barleywine is normally a sad beer indeed, lots of hops and alcohol but the star of the show is left scratching his chin in the eaves of the theatre. This is not one of those beers. The English invented this style and they’re the only ones who know how to make one, save the rare American brewer.

It is through similar cooperation that the simple bitter cocoa bean is transformed into a sweet treat. As scientists, our brewers utilize their materials to exacting standards. As artists, they couldn’t resist the temptation to combine two of our highly acclaimed Blackwater Series Imperial Stouts: Jahva and Choklat. Alone each is perfect, but together as Mokah they are an inimitable expression of two of the world’s most sought after flavors.

Best With: 
Enjoy Mokah stout with – or as – your favorite dessert!

Southern Tier Oat

Product - Southern Tier Oat
Brewed By: 
Southern Tier
Self-Defined Style: 
Imperial Oatmeal Stout
Strength (ABV): 
9.6% ABV
Color (SRM): 
40º L

This beer begins in spring when oat seeds are sown as soon as the soil can be worked. Meanwhile, select types of barley are planted with hopes that Mother Nature will be kind. Our brewers wait patiently until the legumes are mature and ready for the scythe. Upon delivery to the brewery, these ingredients are mixed together in the mash tun where they steep, creating a rich molasses-like liquid. Spicy hops are boiled with the thick brew, giving balance and complexity. Brewers yeast feasts upon the rich sugars, concluding its transformation into oatmeal stout.

Rogue HazelNut Brown Nectar

Substyle - American-Style Brown Ale
Brewed By: 
Rogue
Self-Defined Style: 
Hazel Nut Brown Ale
Strength (ABV): 
5.2% ABV

HazelNut Brown Nectar is a nutty twist to a traditional European Brown Ale. Dark brown in color with a hazelnut aroma, a rich nutty flavor and a smooth malty finish. Dedicated to the home brewer in each of us--the homebrewed who inspired this creation is Chris Studach, a friend of Rogue's resident wizard John Maier, who added a Northwest twist to the classic style by adding hazelnuts for the host homebrew at the 1993 American Home brewers Association convention. Chris put the nut in nut brown!

Best With: 
This Hazel flavored Nut Brown Ale is amazing with spicy pies such as pumpkin, pecan and mincemeat!

Duvel Golden Ale

Product - Duvel Duvel
Brewed By: 
Duvel
Self-Defined Style: 
Belgain Strong Golden Ale
Strength (ABV): 
8.5% ABV
Color (SRM): 
4º L

Duvel is unique. No other beer is made like it, or tastes like it. Blonde and refreshing like a Pilsner, but with the flavor, depth and complexity of an ale, Duvel defines the Strong Golden Ale category. The beer's golden hues originate with its Pilsner malts, while Bohemian hops and a unique yeast strain add character, intensity, and a certain verve. It's this beguiling nature that has made Duvel a Belgian favorite.

Best With: 
Pairs well with seafood, particularly steamed mussels, and works well as a stand alone beer. Excellent as an aperitif.

Brooklyn
Self-Defined Style: 
Imperial Stout
Strength (ABV): 
10.1% ABV

This is the famous Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, our award-winning rendition of the Imperial Stout style, once made exclusively for Catherine the Great. We use three mashes to brew each batch of this beer, achieving a luscious deep dark chocolate flavor through a blend of specialty roasted malts. We brew it every year for the winter season. It is delicious when newly bottled, but also ages beautifully for years.

Best With: 
Served in a snifter, Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout is excellent with chocolate desserts, cheesecake, fruit tarts, and ice cream. It is also a very good accompaniment to strong cheeses, especially Stilton.
