Its been a busy last few weeks, so we will keep it short & sweet. Not huge quantities hitting the shelves but some true quality in store this week!

FEATURE BREWERY
NORREBRO BRYGHUS (DEN)

Little Korkny Ale
600ml $38.00 - A big, bad US style barley wine. Brewed with truckloads of malt & cascade hops imparting a rich caramel sweetness with robust bitterness on the finish.
North Bridge Extreme 600ml $17.00 - A huge imperial IPA, inspired by the West Coast US examples. An explosion of citrus, pine & resin in the mouth with a big whack of malt to attempt to form some sort of balance. Hops galore!
Pacific Summer Ale 600ml $12.00 - Another brew that gains inspiration from the hoppy US styles. Light & golden with a touch of malt & a nice hit of citrussy US hops.
Fano Vestkyst 500ml $11.00 - Cross between a traditional UK & more modern US style pale ales. Some caramel & toffee malt present with some fruity & earthy hops to boot.
Bombay Pale Ale 400ml $9.00 - A traditional UK IPA, with rich malt backbone, marmalade type fruit notes & an earthy hop bitterness on the finish.
Ravnsborg Rod 400ml $8.50 - A traditional style red ale brewed with copious amounts of malt & a nice touch of amarillo hops to add something different.
New York Lager 400ml $8.50 - Relatively clean & crisp lager profile with a touch of malt sweetness & cascade hops for good measure.
Paske Bock 330ml $7.00 - A rich & malty bock, appropriate for the Easter period. Plenty of bready/doughy malt with caramel, as well as some raisin & spice.

FILLING ON GROWLERS
BREWDOG (SCO) DOGMA
Its been a while since this unassuming brew disappeared off the shelves, however it did enjoy quite a nice little following & with good reason! A more modern take on the traditional Scottish heather ales, utilizing heather honey, poppy seeds, kola nuts & guarana. Surprising hey? While it reads like an energy drink, it is actually quite delicious, with rich malt sweetness & an earthy, herbaceous bitterness to balance. At 8%abv it is also dangerously drinkable! - Filling as we speak & continuing until the keg is dry! $30 for the fill.
