Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS)
$6/5oz sample $12/11oz snifter
American Imperial Stout/11-12%/70 IBU
What we’ve got here is an imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolates, then cave-aged in oak bourbon barrels for an entire year to make sure wonderful bourbon undertones come through in the finish. Makes your taste buds squeal with delight.

Backwoods Bastard
$5.50/5oz sample $10/11oz snifter
Old Ale/9.8%/50 IBU
Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts, a bit of earthy spice and a scintilla of dark fruit. It’s a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.

$5.50/5oz sample $10/11oz snifter
Fruit Beer/10%
We took a crisp, light-bodied cherry ale and hid it away in oak barrels that have held both bourbon and maple syrup. After a lengthy stint, it emerged a changed beer, blanketed in notes of warm vanilla and earthy sweetness. The wood proves itself the star of this beer, adding depth and taming the tart cherry while the maple imposes a velvety texture that lingers for not a moment too long.

Azacca IPA
$5.50/16oz pint $8.00/25oz jumbo
American IPA/5.5%/50 IBU
Azacca IPA is brewed with Azacca hops, a special variety created by Yakima-based Roy Farms. Named for the Haitian god of agriculture, the Azacca hop boasts intense, tropical fruit notes. Azacca IPA includes a touch of caramel malt to provide a sweet backbone to the citrus, mango and orchard fruit notes in this 7% ABV, 70 IBUs beer.

All Day IPA
$5.50/16oz pint $8.00/25oz jumbo
American IPA/4.7%/42 IBU
 Keeps your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp. An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatics and a clean finish. The perfect reward for an honest day’s work and the ultimate companion to celebrate life’s simple pleasures.
