3 Floyds Necron 99—An interplanetary IPA. (ABV 7.3%) 3 Floyds Yum Yum—Welcome to flavor country. This Pale Ale has just the right malt backbone to support an explosive juicy hop profile. Derived from a new blend of proprietary hops. 3 Floyds Alpha King—A bold yet balanced American Pale Ale with slight caramel sweetness and aggressive citrus hoppiness. This is our flagship beer. Angry Orchard Rose Cider—A combination of fresh juice from rare red-fleshed apples sourced in France and hibiscus. The cider has a floral aroma, is apple forward in tasted and complimented by refreshing light tannins, similar to semi-dry wine. (ABV 5.5%) Bell’s Amber—Features both toasted and sweet caramel notes from carefully selected malts, balanced with herbal and citrus hop aromas. Capped by a clean bitterness, it’s incredibly versatile with food, but very tasty on its own. Bell’s Two Hearted Ale—Brewed with 100% Centennial hops from the Pacific Northwest and named after the Two Hearted River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, this IPA is bursting with hop aromas ranging from pine to grapefruit from massive hop additions in both the kettle and the fermenter. Perfectly balanced with a malt backbone and combined with the signature fruity aromas of Bell's house yeast, this beer is remarkably drinkable and well suited for adventures everywhere. Bell’s Winter White Ale—An alternative to dark and heavy winter warmers and stouts, Winter White is a stylish and refreshing Wheat Ale. Fermented with a Belgian ale yeast, this blend of barley and wheat malts yields a mixture of clove and fruity aromas, all without the use of any spices. Deliberately brewed to retain a cloudy appearance, Winter White is a beer for embracing winter. Bell’s Barrel Aged Cherry Stout—Tinted ruby-black, Cherry Stout gains its signature tartness from 100% Montmorency cherries grown in Michigan's Traverse City region. Rather than doubling up on sweetness, this tart cherry varietal serves as a counterpoint to the warm, dark chocolate notes from the malt bill. Lightly hopped for balance, this stout is one of the cornerstones of our stout portfolio. Aged 12 months in whiskey barrels.

Blue Stallion Dunkel—Originally brewed in Munich, this classic dark lager has become quite popular throughout Germany. We use a large amount of Munich malts in this lager to provide a bread-like taste with a hint of caramel, which is common of this particular style of beer. We also use one of Germany's finest noble hops from the Hallertauer region to make this beer as authentic as possible. The rich and sweet aromas balanced with its deep brown color will be sure to give your senses an enjoyable overall impression. (ABV 5.4%) Blue Stallion Helles—Helles translates into “bright” in German and is the light colored alternative to a Dunkel in the southern region of Germany. Helles offers a crisp and clean taste with a medium body that is both thirst quenching and refreshing. With a mild grainy aroma and frothy white head, this supreme example of the classic German lager is a beautiful pale yellow with medium carbonation and is served in both liter and half-liter sizes. (ABV 5%) Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat—A lively, refreshing ale with a natural citrusy flavor and distinctive cloudy appearance. This easy drinking American-style wheat beer has become our most popular offering, and the best-selling craft beer in the Midwest. Boulevard Jam Band—Accompanying a simple malt base, blueberry, raspberry and tart cherry play in perfect harmony to create a slightly tart ale that sings with ripe, bursting fruit flavor. Aromas of dark berries, citrus and melon open the show, bridging to zippy fruit flavors that meld into an easy-drinking summer beer worthy of an encore. Boulevard Whiskey Barrel Stout—Over-the-top but surprisingly approachable, this twist on the classic style starts with several types of malted barley, rye, oats and wheat. Robust flavors of vanilla, espresso, whiskey, chocolate and roasted grain are balanced by hints of date and plum, with just enough hops to round it all out. Roughly one-third of the final blend is freshly brewed beer; the rest is aged for up to a year (or more!) in both first and second use whiskey casks. Breckenridge Brewery Vanilla Porter—Real vanilla beans from Madagascar combined with caramel and Munich malts create a beer that’s balanced and flavorful. Aromas of vanilla and toasted grain set the stage for mellow flavors of vanilla and dark roasted malts. Don’t let its deep mahogany color fool you. Vanilla Porter is dark in color and packed with flavor, yet it is as smooth as they come and easy to enjoy at any time of the year. Brooklyn Lager—Amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts show in the finish. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by "dry-hopping", the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food. (ABV 5.2%)

Brooklyn Defender IPA—Golden IPA featuring strong notes of tropical fruit, well-muscled hop bitterness, and an incredibly dry finish. (ABV 5.9%) Brooklyn Naranjito—Brooklyn Naranjito is a classic American pale ale pushed a tiny bit further. An extra burst of aromatic hops and a sizable helping of sweet orange peel create just the right pop of citrus. (ABV 4.5%) Country Boy Cougar Bait—A crisp straw-colored ale with a unique malt and citrus hop balance. This beer was the brainchild of an all night trip back from Michigan. Fueled by Snack Cakes and Energy Drinks, the boys pulled this recipe out of their exhausted noggins. You'll be glad they did. Easy drinking, full flavored and always leaving you wanting more- Cougar Bait works. (ABV 4.9%) Country Boy Shotgun Wedding—A malty brown ale conditioned with real vanilla beans. This beer was made for a friend's wedding, with no intention of ever making it again. The folks at the reception had other plans. The use of real vanilla beans is costly and time consuming, but one sip and you will understand why. (ABV 5.3%) Devil’s Backbone Vienna Lager—With its amber chestnut colored good looks and smooth malty finish, Vienna Lager was an obvious choice to put into package. It blends color and flavor without heaviness or bitterness. Just as Vienna Lagers historically inspired Munich’s Oktoberfest beers to evolve, this amber lager has evolved since they opened in 2008 into the award winning beer it is today. Experience the taste and tradition. Mild, Toasted, Caramel. Dogfish Head Namaste White—On a quest to brew a witbier chock full of flavor, Namaste White dug deep into our culinary roots using ingredients of dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass, peppercorns and a bit of coriander for a refreshing and sessionable experience. Dogfish Head Romantic Chemistry—What you have here is a serious India Pale Ale shacking up and hunkering down with mango and apricots. At the same time! Romantic Chemistry is brewed with an intermingling of mangos, apricots and ginger, and then dry-hopped with three varieties of hops to deliver a tropical fruit aroma and a hop-forward finish. Dogfish Head Lupu-Luau IPA—We started with a combination of Pils malt with flaked barley, rolled oats, and malted and raw wheat to get it all hazy. Then we introduced coconuts three ways by adding toasted coconut, dehydrated coconut water and an experimental hop variety that provides a unique coconut & woody aroma. The result? A lupulin-loaded, coconut-centric ale. Elysian Space Dust IPA—Hopped with pure starglow energy. (ABV 8.2%)

Drawing at 8:45pm.

Ethereal White Ale—An easy-drinking beer, Belgian Witbier or simply “Wit” or “white,” is a Belgian-style wheat beer that’s pale in color. This style dates back hundreds of years, and gets its name due to suspended yeast and wheat proteins, which cause the beer to look hazy - or white - when cold. This style of wheat beer used to be the dominant style, until it went out of popularity in Belgium. In the 1960s, Belgian brewer Pierre Celis revitalized it, and today it’s one of the most popular beer styles on the market. Their representation of the Belgian Witbier style, White Ale, utilizes Indian coriander (because it’s more aromatic) & sweet orange peels! (ABV 4.5%) Ethereal Lambda Oatmeal Stout—A wonderfully delicious sweetness balanced by the contrasting roasted flavor of the beer. This scrumptious stout pours thick and opaque with a gorgeous tan head, boastfully photogenic in its beauty. Each sip holds a perfectly balanced toffee and molasses succulence, dessert-like and satisfying without being too heavy to drink a second glass. In fact, it’s hard not to. (ABV 5.7%) Falls City Hipster Repellant—Balanced and definitely not bland, only American hops are used to brew this piney, citrusy IPA. Citra hops are used in the aroma and Amarillo hops in the flavor, crafting a well-balanced, West Coast style IPA with a nice caramel and toffee malt bill. (ABV 6.3%) Falls City Street Lamp Porter—This pre-prohibition style porter is brewed with 6-row malt, molasses and lager yeast. The name pays homage to America in the 1800s. A time when lamplighters lit streetlamps surrounded by Victorian homes and neighborhood brewpubs were prominent in Louisville. Fat Tire Belgian White—Taking inspiration from our decades of experience brewing Belgian beers, Fat Tire Belgian White is made with Seville oranges and Indian coriander, both freshly ground less than a mile from our Fort Collins brewery. It’s a fresh, perfectly sweet, natural tasting Belgian White. Fat Tire Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze—Packed with bright tropical aromas and brilliant citrusy flavors, this unfiltered IPA wraps up with a pleasantly smooth finish. Founders All Day IPA—Keeps your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp. An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatics and a clean finish. The perfect reward for an honest day’s work and the ultimate companion to celebrate life’s simple pleasures. (ABV 4.7%)

Founders Solid Gold—Founders brewery was built on an attitude of no regrets. An attitude of taking risks to bring the best beer possible to our fellow renegades and rebels. Never brewing to style, but always brewing what we want to drink. Our take on a classic, Solid Gold is a drinkable premium lager brewed with the highest quality ingredients. Challenging what a lager can be? That’s something we won’t regret. (ABV 4.4%) Founders Rubaeus—Optimizing the flavor of fresh raspberries, Rubaeus is Founders’ way of celebrating the joys of summer year-round. This stunning berry-red masterpiece is the perfect blend of sweet, tart and refreshing. No question about it, this beer is 100% Founders. (ABV 5.7%) Founders Breakfast Stout—The coffee lover’s consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever. (ABV 8.3%) Goodwood Louisville Lager—The first and only beer brewed with 100% Kentucky-grown grains. And, in a tip of the cap to our Slugger-making neighbors downtown, white ash – common in baseball bats – is used to enhance brewing. This results in a light-bodied, perfectly balanced lager with a sweet finish delivered by those Kentucky grains. (ABV 4.2%) Goodwood American Pale Ale—Aged on poplar and brewed with several American hop varieties. The 5.7 ABV brew features a hoppy, floral bouquet, that finishes perfectly with a pleasingly sweet, malty backbone. The packaging will honor fallen American Heroes. In addition to bearing the name of a fallen hero on their American Pale Ale cans, Goodwood Brewing will also host fundraisers and donate to their partnering foundations throughout the year. (ABV 5.7%) Goodwood Hemp Gose—Slightly salty, nice and tart, with a dash of dank--- this shrub-touched Gose is unlike any other you've had before! Our interpretation of this german-style sour beer is crisp, light and refreshing. The malt body compliments the tartness of the brew and the hemp adds a light herbal aroma and a slight funk on the finish! Goose Island Gillian—Inspired by an amuse bouche often prepared by the wife of one of our brewers, Gillian brings white pepper, strawberry, and honey to a harmonious blend. Partially aged in wine barrels, this Belgian style farmhouse ale is slightly tart and pleasantly sweet in a refreshingly effervescent body. Great Flood Toasted Brown Ale—A malty beer that uses its hop flavor to complement and enhance its chocolate and caramel characters. (ABV 5.2%)

Great Flood Find a Way IPA—A bold and balanced American IPA. Utilizing a strong malty backbone, Find-A-Way IPA highlights the floral citrus and grapefruit flavors from Cascade and Centennial hops as well as the clean, crisp bitterness of Galena. (ABV 7%) Great Lakes Conway's Irish Ale—A malty beer with a notable toasty flavor derived from lightly roasted malt. Slight fruit and hop accents add to the overall complexity. Great Lakes Holy Moses Raspberry White Ale—In the spirit of Moses Cleaveland's thirst for discovery, our classic White Ale meets fresh, juicy raspberries to forge a pint worth planting a flag in (or an orange slice!) Great Lakes Eliot Ness Amber Lager—Admittedly, it’s a bit of a paradox to name our Amber Lager for history’s most famous agent of prohibition. But it’s a smooth, malty (and dare we say, arresting?) paradox. Jarfly Baxter’s Coffee Stout—Our stout is brewed with an infusion of locally roasted Baxter’s Coffee and a hint of vanilla. It is pitch black in color and has a super smooth, creamy taste. Jarfly Jalapeno Common Ale—Common Ale with local jalapeños. Smooth drinking and has the flavor of the spice without being incredibly spicy. (ABV 4.2%) Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Blackberry Porter—This is a big dark beer with bold flavors to ease you into spring. This Porter has been brewed with the official state fruit of Kentucky and aged in bourbon barrels. This spring seasonal comes out wit the bold roasted malt flavors complimented by a nose of fresh blackberries. (ABV 8.3%) Kentucky Vanilla Barrel Cream Ale—We took a cold-conditioned cream ale brewed with a hint of flaked corn and bourbon vanilla beans and aged it in Kentucky bourbon barrels for two months. (ABV 5.5%) Kona Longboard Lager—Longboard Island Lager is a crisp, pale-gold lager made with choice malts and aromatic hops, brewed in a traditional lager style. It’s a smooth and easygoing beer that never goes out of style—ever. Lagunitas Dry Hopped Censored—Malty, Roasty, and Deceptively Smooth… This Amber-esque ale gets more of a cocoa-toasty flavor from the use of chocolate malts. Lagunitas Sumpin’ Easy—A healthy dose of 2-row malted barley, a bit of wheaty-esque-ish-ness and loads of Ekuanot hops to create a super smooth and velvety ale with a fruit and resin-y- finish like biting into a freshly picked peach. Easy! Lagunitas Aunt Sally—A dry hopped sour mash ale. It's sweet, tart, and sassy, just like the tasty cherry pie that your favorite aunt makes. For all the Aunt Sally's out there, You know who you are...

Lemons Mill Just One Mo’ American Pale Ale—The Mosaic hops with biscuit malt blend well together to give this brew a subtle piney aroma with a flavorful burst of citrus flavor that’s bold and full but finishes crisp and clean. (ABV 6.3%) Lemons Mill The Manganero’s—Just like a good woman, this beer is both sweet and spicy. The aroma and the flavor of the mango provides some sweetness while the heat of the habanero spices it up at the end. No worries as the heat is short-lived Hopefully unlike your experiences with a good woman. (ABV 6.3%) MadTree Psychopathy—Explore the blend of citrus, bright, and floral aromas. Additional citrus flavors follow alongside a smooth bitterness. It finishes with a medium body and a slightly sweet, malty backbone. Trust your senses. MadTree Dreamsicle—The best part about being an adult is being able to drink beer but why not re-live a little of your childhood at the same time? Enter Dreamsicle. MadTree Rubus Cacao—Sweet chocolate notes lead as raspberry tartness follows in unison resembling a perfectly executed dance. The result is a blend of flavors even more spectacular together than apart. It’s love at first sip. Mile Wide Barstow—American wheat ale. (ABV 5.5%) Mile Wide Idlewild—Session IPA. (ABV 5%) Mile Wide McPoyle—Nitro milk stout. (ABV 6.5%) Mirror Twin White Girl Wasted Blonde Ale—This is a light and refreshing ale that is easy to drink and easy to enjoy. Two different malts are used to give this blonde ale a bit of color and a slight sweetness. Also used is a unique method of adding the hops, which mellows the bitterness and makes the beer smoother to drink. Have a few, and see where the night goes. (ABV 4.5%) Mirror Twin Red Blooded American—This medium bodied, delicious ale makes you want to yell out 'merica. It has a beautiful red color with just enough hop bitterness to play perfectly with the malty goodness. This is a great beer for people who are ready to graduate from a blonde ale, and get into more serious brews. (ABV 6.8%) Pivot Vintage—A straightforward, apple cider. It is semi-dry, has some chardonnay characteristics, and is crisp and subtle. Pivot Hoopla—A sweeter cranberry cider. It is full of sweet fruit in the first sip and then has a medium, tart finish.

Rhinegeist Squirrel—This English Nut Brown Ale features notes of hazelnut, toffee, and a smooth creamy finish. (ABV 4.8%) Rhinegeist Truth—Intensely hopped, dry IPA with centenniall, Citra, Amarillo, and simcoe hops. Hopped at a rate of 3LBS/BBL to rev up peach, mango and passion fruit notes.

(ABV 4.9%) Rock House Double Kick Drum IPA—A high gravity Indian Pale Ale with tropical hop aroma, citrus flavor, and sweet malt balance. (ABV 7.8%) Rooster Brewing Elephant IPA—A single hopped IPA with a strong Pilsen malt backbone that blends almost seamlessly with the 100% Nelson Sauvignon hops. Incredibly easy to drink at 7.5% ABV and and 67 IBU. Rooster Brewing Harrier—Blond Wheat Ale With Coriander. Incredibly easy drinking wheat ale with just a touch of spice, including Coriander. Even at 6.3 %ABV and moderate carbonation and mouth feel, this beer drinks like a summer session ale and the well balanced wheat and malt make this a great beer for an afternoon. Samuel Adams Sam ’76—A perfect union of lager and ale, giving you a craft beer with the flavor of an ale and the refreshment and crisp finish of a lager. (ABV 4.7%) Shock Top Belgian White—This spiced Belgian-style wheat ale is the pinnacle of refreshment brewed with real orange, lemon and lime peels for a smooth, citrusy finish. The beer that’s always down to chill — and be chilled. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale—Pale Ale began as a home brewer’s dream, grew into an icon, and inspired countless brewers to follow a passion of their own. Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic, yet it remains new, complex and surprising to thousands of beer drinkers every day. It is—as it always has been—all natural, bottle conditioned and refreshingly bold. Sierra Nevada Hazy Little Thing IPA—Unfiltered, unprocessed IPA, straight from the tanks and into the can.

Southern Tier 2XIPA—An IPA kicked up a notch to form a true Double IPA: feverishly hoppy with a malty backbone and higher-than-standard alcohol content. Citrusy hops tease the senses with aromatics and lingering bitterness, while just the right balance of malts disguises 2XIPAs extra gravity. Double your expectations, this is an ale that demands reverence. (ABV 8.2%) Stone Tangerine Express IPA—This ain’t no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. We use bountiful whole tangerine purée, which brings pithy, crisp bitterness to the citrus flavor. In addition to the complexities of the tangerine — the likes of which you can only get by using the whole fruit — we judiciously employ just a hint of whole pineapple for a backnote (you’d likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didn’t tell you it was there). We’re not looking for a sweet concoction to appease the “I want my beer to taste like fruit juice” crowd. This is Stone. We like their IPAs to taste like IPAs. Big, bold and not for kids. Stone Delicious IPA—While our beers are many and diverse, yet unified by overarching boldness, India pale ales are our undeniable bread and butter. The result is an intensely citrusy, beautifully bitter beer is worthy of the simple-yet-lordly title of Stone Delicious IPA. Lemondrop and El Dorado hops combine to bring on a magnificent lemon candy-like flavor that’s balanced by hop spice. It’s unlike anything we’ve tasted in nearly two decades of IPA experimentation, and another lupulinlaced creation we’re excited to present to hopheads everywhere. Stone Bourbon Barrel Arrogant Bastard—Barrel aged strong ale. SweetWater Grass Monkey Hoppy Wheat Ale with Lemongrass—Get sprung this spring with this funky monkey of a wheat ale. A big stash of Lemondrop hops were added to the kettle and the dry hop, delivering a big citrus blast. Lemongrass herbs were added for a refreshing twist and exotic aroma. The light malt bill lets the piney, grassy, lemony notes shine. Light in body with bright citrus notes, this is an extremely complex but very easy drinking brew. SweetWater 420 Extra Pale Ale—Our most popular brew! A tasty west coast style extra pale ale accentuated with a stimulating hop character. Brewed with 2 row malt , munich and 40L malt and a heady dose of cascade and centennial hops. (ABV 5.7%) Truly Spiked & Sparkling—Assorted varieties including Wild Berry, Blueberry, Acai, Raspberry& Lime and Pomegranate. Uinta Hop Nosh IPA—Our flagship IPA boasts an assertive bitterness and vibrant hop aromatics. Expect notes of pine, lime zest and grapefruit supported by caramel malts.

Uinta Grapefruit Hop Nosh IPA—Tangy, juicy and slightly sweet, the latest twist on our flagship IPA features an aromatic burst of fresh squeezed white grapefruit, complementing the bold, hop-forward character of our popular Hop Nosh family. Uinta Crisp Apple Ale—Smooth and easy-drinking, this handcrafted ale balances a subtle tart apple aroma and flavor with a light grainy malt sweetness. West Sixth Cerveza Mexican Lager—Our take on a light Mexican lager is crisp with a pleasant cracker like malt character with a low amount of hops to create a quenching and sessionable lager. (ABV 4.6%) West Sixth IPA—Our flagship IPA heavily hopped for flavor and aroma with generous amount of Citra hops, (and Centennial, Columbus, Cascade). Citrus is the obvious star over the backbone of bready malt and pine stickiness. Citrus and dank is what you get here. (ABV 7%) West Sixth Meadoweisse Berlinerweisse—This Berliner Weisse was brewed to style. Kettle soured with Lactobacillus and brewed with Pilsner and Wheat malts. Expect a light straw colored beer with a little bit of a funky/acidic aroma. Fresh lemon flavors are introduced up front, gradually giving way to the malted wheat graininess. (ABV 4.75%) West Sixth Pennyrile Pale Ale—Our seasonal Pale Ale has a big fruity hop aroma with a taste that follows suit. A subtle and balanced malt character creates a canvas for the hops to shine. (ABV 6%) Woodchuck Gumption—Legendary showman P.T. Barnum once noted, “everybody drank cider-spirits called ‘gumption’.” Woodchuck Gumption celebrates the spirit of P.T. Barnum and those with the gumption to follow their own path. The fresh juice of common eating apples paired with dry cider apples to bring a bold and unique drinking experience. Yuengling Lager—Famous for its rich amber color and medium-bodied flavor with roasted caramel malt for a subtle sweetness and a combination of cluster and cascade hops, this true original delivers a well-balanced taste with very distinct character. Born from a historic recipe that was resurrected in 1987, Yuengling Traditional Lager is a true classic. Yuengling Black & Tan—Models a traditional English Half & Half. Introduced in 1986, Yuengling produced one of the first hand-crafted draft blends to lead this style of American brewing. Black & Tan combines 60% of our popular Dark Brewed Porter and 40% of our Premium Beer to create a brew that is rich and dark in color with hints of caramel and coffee from the dark roasted malts.
