We’re happy to announce the arrival of an American Craft Beer Advent Calendar! Each box contains a variety of different styles from the following breweries: Goose Island, Golden Road, Kona, Redhook and Widmer. Of special note are the brews from Los Angeles’ Golden Road Brewing, available for the first time in Chicagoland in this very box. Here are some of our favorites from Golden Road, as well as a few other delicious stand outs.  

 

Golden Road Wolf Among the Weeds

Tropical, grassy and herbaceous; this aromatic IPA pairs spicy malted rye with monstrously dank and earthy hops. So light and crisp it’s almost impossible to believe this is 8% ABV.  

Golden Road Get Up Offa That Brown

We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again, brown ales get overlooked. Get Up Offa That Brown is everything a great brown should be. Rich but balanced, big chocolate and caramel are followed by a dry toasty finish.  

Golden Road Ride On IPA

Golden Road is famous for their IPAs and after a taste of Ride On it is easy to see why. Citra and Simcoe impart some amazing tropical aromatics to this refreshing and juicy IPA. The finish is soft and smooth with notes of guava and pineapple.  

Kona Pipeline Porter

Kona’s Pipeline Porter is made with 100% hand-picked Kona Coffee from the big island’s Cornwell Estate. Low in acidity with a nice full mouthfeel, this coffee blends seamlessly with chocolate and caramel malts to create a satisfying porter with just a touch of sweetness on the finish.  

Widmer Brrr

While many winter seasonals are malty or spiced, Widmer decided to break with tradition and brew a big hoppy red. Brewed with a their proprietary “Alchemy Hop Blend”, Brrr is piney and spicy with just enough malt to round things out.  

Redhook Winterhook

First brewed in 1984, each year Redhook tweaks their popular winter seasonal. Dark amber in color, this year’s Winterhook offers a nice balance of malt and hops with pronounced citrus and caramel leading to a pleasantly dry finish.   *This seasonal item is available in limited quantities, and is only available in stores. It will sell out quickly! Call or visit your favorite Binny's location today.   Check out the Beer Buzz for updates on new beer, tastings, sales and more!
