Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro
This St Patty’s day give new brew a try. When this stout first hit the market there was a big stir. How different could be you ask? Pop the top off and dump that bottle into a glass, and I mean DUMP the beer and you will see why. First thing you will notice is the rise of deliciously soft bubbles to the top followed by a rush of slightly sweet milk sugar, roasted coffee and coco aromas. Don’t let the dark appearance fool you, this is a mellow and soft stout that will appeal to more than your typical Irish stout. This is truly a stout that will appeal to most so give it a chance, your pallet will thank you.

Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider
This crisp and refreshing cider has just the right balance of crisp apples mixed with a slightly dry finish to keep you coming back for more. Different from the common dry English ciders, this American style has a sweet and ripe apple taste at first followed by a subtle dry finish to round it out. This newer style seems to appeal to those normally put off by a sweet cider. Give it a try and let your taste buds decide!
Available in 6packs for $8.99 and 12packs for $15.99
Pipeworks Standard Issue IPA
This local IPA is great for any day, not too aggressive but plenty flavorful to keep the hop heads happy. Once poured into a glass, the appearance is golden with a slight amber hue. The aromas from this beer are fantastic with tropical citrus, mango, lemon and orange are all present with the addition of slight pine. The newest batch also has the addition of Galaxy hops to add to the complexity of this brew. All in all, this is a great IPA for the seasoned hop head or to someone just getting into craft brews and looking to try a great IPA.
