Unibroue Grand Reserve 17

It isn't very often that we're this excited about a single bottle of beer. Two bottles, actually.

17 is an oak aged Belgian style strong dark ale with lots of rich dark fruit character, underlying spice and oak tannins. It's a French oak aged, bottle refermented classic. Not only is it wonderful beer, but it's great for cellaring, too. Unibroue suggests an aging potential between 5 and 8 years.

Right now, we have our stock not only of this year's release, but of 2011 as well.

Binny's is the only place to get both vintages side by side at this unbeatable price (unless you have a geeky friend with discerning tastes, a beer cellar basement and an accounting degree). There's a good chance you'll never see this bottle at this price again.


*Special price valid through 5/5/2014 or while supplies last.

Session IPA

We totally called it. About a year ago, session IPAs were emerging as the latest fad in craft beer. Since then, the fad has grown into a movement. Session IPA seem to dominate the Neverending Stream of New Beers, and our shelves too. What's not to love? Big hop notes in a balanced, drinkable beer without the sky high ABV? Yes please. Just a few we can't stop talking about:


Stone Go To IPA Stone Go To IPA
A juicy bomb of hop flavor. Stone uses what they call "hop bursting" to make this beer. We call it "late-boil hop addition." Still, it's great. One of the better session IPAs on our shelves, but also one of the most expensive.



Lagunitas Day Time IPA
They call it a "fractional IPA." We call it a "session IPA." Hey, it's cheaper to order just one sign for the aisle. This easy drink has been around for a while, and it has lasted for good reason. In a category of sessionable beers, this one might be the most sessionable. Very light bodied, satisfying and quenching. We can't wait until this stuff is being produced right here in Chicago.



Founders All Day IPA Founders All Day IPA
Our best selling session IPA hails from beer city, USA. That's Grand Rapids, Michigan, by the way. Juicy and balanced midwest hop profile, and a crushable, lighter-than water body, which means big flavor that goes down fast. Coming soon in 15 pack can.



Easy Jack
Possibly Broph's favorite session IPA we've seen. Huge hop flavor, fuller body than some of the others, but it maintains all the balance and drinkability you want. Think of this as the little brother of one of our all-time favorite IPAs, Union Jack.



Baderbrau Lawnmower LagerBaderbrau Lawnmower Lager
What? A lager on this list? It's hands down the best beer we've had this month. Technically not an ale, this India pale lager is hopped with Falconer's Flight and Glacier hops. Tropical fruit and citrus notes abound. Seriously, this beer is awesome.



Lakefront Extended Play India Session Ale
COMING SOON

A India session ale from our friends up north. The Beer Buzz recently visited this Milwaukee brewery (with an additional stop at a cheese store, of course) and got a taste of an experimental batch of this upcoming session ale. Huge hop flavor, just enough body that you remember it's beer: exactly what you're looking for in a session IPA. Watch for it.



Goose Island Endless IPA Goose Island Endless IPA
We really liked Goose Island Summertime, and we thought it was the best it ever was last summer. Apparently you didn't, though. So they replaced it with Endless IPA, their new summer seasonal, and a session IPA. We were bummed, but bummed less after we tasted it. Not as over-the-top hoppy as some of the others on this list, but that makes it all the more balanced and drinkable. Just rolled in last week.
