Abita Turbodog

Abita Turbodog6 Pack of 12oz Bottles ...

Over the past 30 years Abita has brewed many beers, but few are more iconic or versatile than Turbodog. On paper, it’s a brown ale, but Turbodog’s unique melding of complexity with drinkability makes it something special. Brimming with chocolate and toffee notes, but not overly sweet, Willamette hops provide just enough bitterness to keep everything in balance. This rich and roasty ale is a must when serving Louisiana classics like gumbo and jambalaya.


Abita Mardi Gras Bock

Goin Up The CountryA German Classic Reborn

Over the past several decades many of the mass-produced lagers reliance on adjuncts, filtration and shortcuts tarnished the reputation of this venerated style. Landbier, or “country beer,” is a return to the time when wholesome simplicity mattered more than aesthetics. Germany’s Braueri C & A Veltins is revered for their famous pilsener, and their latest release, Grevensteiner Landbier,, is proof that few things are more satisfying than a carefully crafted and conditioned lager.

Hats Off to Captain RonAnd the Wild Ales of Ann Arbor

It has been a long time coming, but sour and funkified beer is developing quite a following and breweries across the country are starting to experiment with wild yeasts and bacteria. For one Midwestern visionary that journey began long ago. Since 2004, Jolly Pumpkin’s Ron Jeffries (or Captain Ron as he likes to be called) has been painstakingly imbuing the terroir of southeastern Michigan into a sea of oaken delights. Ron, we salute you and your crew for traversing unknown waters and look forward to feature treasures to come. Here are a few of their classics, all brimming with character and complexity.


Jolly Pumpkin Oro De Calabaza
Jolly Pumpkin Oro De Calabaza
Jolly Pumpkin Oro De Calabaza25.4oz Bottle ...

This bright golden ale was no doubt inspired by Duvel, but its time spent in oak allows Brettanoymces to add a whole new dimension of flavor to this classic Belgian style. Funky and spicy on the nose, it begins with a touch of sweetness buy ultimately finishes dry with big black pepper and a hint of citrus. Bottle conditioned with living yeast, this beer will continue to evolve if cellared, becoming even drier with time.


Jolly Pumpkin Calabaza Blanca

Jolly Pumpkin Calabaza Blanca25.4oz Bottle ...

Jolly Pumpkin’s riff on a Belgian wit is an approachable and refreshing introduction to the magic of barrel aging. Calabaza Blanca juxtaposes a soft and creamy mouthfeel with crisp lactic acidity, with big fruity esters accenting a bright spicy finish. A wit that’s not to be missed.

Have you been let down by “session” beers in the past? Brewing flavorful and satisfying low alcohol beer requires great skill and Jolly Pumpkin’s Bam Bière delivers. Artfully balanced, it delivers notes of apricot, hay, and white pepper. Tart but not bracingly sour, this is a beautifully nuanced and invigorating wild ale.


Jolly Pumpkin Bam Noire

Similar to Bam Bière, but brewed with darker malts, this ale is extremely fruity with notes of Morello cherries and plums accented by toffee, sweet baking spice and cocoa powder. Funky and tart, the sour character here is nuanced, allowing for a variety of subtle complexities to shine through. This ale pairs wonderfully with charcuterie, and works especially well with an aged gouda or washed rind cheese.

Lagunitas Undercover Shutdown Ale6 Pack of 12oz Bottles ...

One of our favorites from Lagunitas commemorates a dark day in 2005 when they were busted for doing something that is now perfectly legal in California. C’est la vie, at least we got this delicious beer out of it! Like many brews from Lagunitas it’s kind of hard to pin a style on this one. Rich and malty like an English barleywine, yet dripping with citrusy American hops, it’s smooth, balanced and dangerously easy to drink.
