3 Ravens Ale Noir 750ml $18.00 -
Pinot Noir barrel aged version of their dark, a German style smoked bock.

Sitting between English & US style pale ales, supporting malt of honey & caramel with robust hop aroma & bitterness from the use of Simcoe, Ahtanum & Cascade varieties.

Moylans Porter 650ml $10.50 - Rich, robust porter with masses of espresso & bittersweet chocolate notes.

Moylans Nor Cal IPA 650ml $12.50 - Rich, malty palate with significant hop character from the use of Fuggles & Chinook varieties both in the kettle & for dry hopping.

A Bavarian institution, Weihensephan is the world's oldest commercial brewery. Their festbier is an okterberfest style lager, meaning it is oh so drinkable! Beautifully delicate & balanced with floral, earthy hop aroma, subtle sweet bread & honey malt on the palate with a cleansing spicy noble hop bitterness on the finish. Couldn't imagine anything better than drinking this by the stein in a beer garden, or even your own garden!

Filling as we speak. If you don’t already have a growler, bottles are $15 each, while a fill of Weihenstephan Festbier is $25.00
