On Tap

Allagash James Bean maine - their curieux (belgian inspired tripel aged in bourbon barrels) with maine cold pressed coffee.   
Allagash White maine - rob tod's interpretation of a traditional belgian wheat beer, allagash white is brewed with a generous portion of wheat and a special blend of spices, this beer is light and slightly cloudy in appearance, with a spicy aroma. overall, it is a beer that is very drinkable and smooth any time of the year.   
De Molen Jaar & Dag netherlands - excellent, super-dry saison. fruity aromas from the yeast.   
Delirium Tremens belgium - a triple in style. the young drinkers just love the pink elephant logo   
Demolen Vuur & Vlaam fire & flame. another great beer from menno. this brewery is inside of a circa 1600 windmill. american style ipa with aggressive hopping,   
Deschutes Black Butte Porter oregon - multi-award winning porter from this amazing brewery. roasty, chocolate notes in the body. crisp, bitter finish. yummy!   
Dogfish Head Aprihop released each year in march, a strong ipa brewed with luscious apricots, finished with whole leaf willamette and cascade hops. fruity, citrusy, cedar, thirst-quenching. a "fruit beer for hop heads " (ale street news)   
Dupont Avec Les Bon Voeux 2012 vintage. this super saison ages well. arguably the best holiday ale made in belgium. a bit of citrus in the finish. lots of dried fruit in the taste. medium to full body. hops in taste & finish. such a great balance. dry finish.   
Freigeist Peated Porter germany - the smoked malt componet really shines through, although i don't get much of the "peated" malt aroma or flavor. lower than anticipated phenols. notes of bacon dipped in bittersweet chocolate.   
Het Nest Klverteren belgium - strong dark ale with notes of caramel & coffee. the oak aging adds a bit of vanilla from the wood.   
Laurelwood Workhorse IPA portland , oregon - certainly a west-coast ipa in character. deep gold/copper color. medium body. aromas of passion fruit and pine cones. dry hopped. easy to drink   
Moa St Joseph's Tripel new zealand - belgian inspired abbey tripel. notes of clove and aromatic spices.   
Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale belgium - that's right, our own private label brewed for us by the family-owned van steenberge brewery, just outside ghent, belgium. medium body, red color, somewhat fruity nose, malt flavor with a slight lactic taste. great stuff! a real thirst quencher and palate cleanser.   
Petrus Aged Pale Ale belgium - this is a staff favorite in bottle. this beer is aged 18 months in oak barrels, which provides the sour note this beer exhibits. kegs of this are a real rariety. both refreshing and bracing.   
Russian River Blind Pig california - perhaps my favorite west coast ipa. solid hop aromas and finish backed up by the perfect balance of malt.   
Russian River Damnation california - blonde ale influenced by duvel. great aromas of banana and pear. medium body with flavors of pale roasted malt and spice from the hops. hops in the finish give it a crisp, dry finish.   
Sierra Nevada Single Hop california - their harvest ale made with whole cone hops. this year the used yakima experimental hop 291. can't wait to taste this.   
St. Bernardus Abt 12 belgium - can you say malt? i thought you could. quadrupel. full body. raisins, chocolate, dates and all sorts of wonderful flavors out of this huge beer. this rocks!   
Stoudt's Karnival Kolsch adamstown, pa - light, crisp & refreshing. it’s tastes like a lager, but it’s an ale. a bit of fruitiness and a tad of hop bitterness.   
Tripel Karmeliet belgium - traditional belgian tripel that is a tad drier in the finish than is chimay. this is keith's, one of our chefs, favorite beer.   

Coming Soon

Chimay Triple ( Aka Cinq Cent ) belgium - rich, spicy blonde triple, dry herbaceous finish. brewed on the grounds of a trappist monastary (in the ardennes mtns). the hoppiest of their three offerings. since 1862 the cistercian trappist monks of chimay have been developing the production of trappist beers (and cheeses!).   
De Molen Amarillo netherlands - menno really combines old world tradition with new american styles. this is one of his takes of a double ipa. brewed with challenger & saaz hops, but dry hopped with amarillo. lots of citrus & pine aromas. almost resin(y) finish.   
Demolen Hamer & Sikkel netherlands- inspired by english porters. medium body. notes of coffee and biscuits.   
Demolen Bloed, Zweet & Taren netherlands - (blood, sweat & tears) english peat smoked malt and weyerman beechwood smoked malt. notes of coffee, chocolate & dark fruit with a phenolic smokey edge.   
Dogfish Head Positive Contact delaware - named after one of my favorite deltron 3030 songs from their legendary lp. a twist on a belgian wit. sam uses fuji apple juice instead of orange peel; cilantro instead of coriander; and a pinch of cayenne pepper   
Port Hop 15 california - double ipa with 15? varieties of hops. huge resin-like taste and feel. big ass beer.   
Elysian Super Fuzz seattle, washington - blood orange pale ale. haven't tasted this yet, but dick cantwell brews amazing beers. i expect nothing less from him. expect this to be refreshing   
Against The Grain Bloody Show louisville, kentucky - the didn't have anything like this when i was stationed at fort knox in the early 1970's. great bourbon & crappy beer was the way of the day. these boys have stepped up the game in that town. this is a collaboration with mikkel. a czech-style pilsner with us & saaz hops w/blood orange juice added.   
Atg London Balling louisville, kentucky - another offering from against the grain (atg). this is an english-style barleywine ale which was aged in an angel's envy bourbon barrel. huge, viscous malt bomb.
