FEATURED BEER OF THE MONTH

Boon Black Label (Geuze)

In 2015 Boon Brewery presented Oude Geuze Boon Black Label fo the first time. The Oude Geuze sutied the consumers’ palate very well and in May 2016 it won the gold medal at th World beer Cup 2016. This Oude Geuze is made from a selection of lambic from oak casks, foeders, with the highest degree of fermentation. This make Oude Geuze Boon Black Label bone-dry whil keeping it full-bodied. As inspiration for the label on the bottle, the 40 yesr old design of the first label of “OUde Geuze Boon’ was used.

Petrus Quad Nitro (Quadruple)

Just released in Winter 2017, Petrus Nitro Quad is a truly unique beer from Brouweril De Brabandere. The base beer is a Quadrupel brewed with 6 different types of malt. Delivered with nitrogen provides a creamy, velvety taste. At 11.5% ABV, stron, but so smooth.

Saint Arnold Elissa Cask (IPA)

A traditional India. Pale Ale, the Elissa IPA is very hoppy with a properly balanced malty body. Elissa has huge hop additions in the kettle that give it a wonderful bitteness andis then dry-hopped in the fermenter to create the pleasant floral, hoppy nose. Our reverse osmosis water makes the bitter very soft with no harsh notes to it. The maltiness dervied from the British Maris Otter malt. Its rich flavor stands up to the hops that would otherwise dominate this bee. The Elissa is an authentic version of an IPA style.

Austin Eastciders Blood Orange (Cider)

Austin Eastciders blended blood oranges from Italy with bitterwseet heirloom apples to create a cider with a zesty twist. With just the right amount of sweet and citrus flavors, their Blood Orange ciders is sure to brighten your day.
