Get The Most Out Of Savannah Craft Brew Fest

An Introduction To Various Beer Styles

Welcome to the 6th Annual Savannah Craft Brew Fest presented by Abita Beer. With over 150 beers available for you to sample, there is no way to try them all, so here are some tips to make the most of your festival experience: MAKE A GAME PLAN Pick a theme to organize your tasting choice. • Pick one style of beer and compare samples from various breweries. • Taste a number of bitter beers: Pale Ales, German Pilsners, and India Pale Ales. • Taste a range of sweeter, malty beers: Scottish Ales, German and Czech Dark Beers, Porters and Stouts. • Taste beers of a certain region such as U.S. Pacific Coast beers, or beers from a certain country like Belgium. Regardless of your plan, always remember to pace yourself! HOW TO TASTE BEER LOOK: Raise the beer in front of you and marvel at its greatness before you drink. Note the beer’s color, head and consistency. SMELL: Sniff the beer - note its aroma and bouquet. TASTE: Taste is by far the most subjective and important factor when evaluating a beer. Try a sample and note the beer’s unique flavor. TIPS AND TRICKS • Start your day by sampling beers with a lighter flavor before moving on to heavier beers. • Rinse your glass between samples. Water and rinse buckets will be at each table. • Take notes and grade the beers so you can remember which beers you like and dislike. • Drink plenty of water. • Take some time to eat. There are numerous vendors on-site serving all types of food. • Know your limits and please drink responsibly. • Take a taxi if needed. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Train Wrecks 4:00pm-8:00pm A musical force from the moss-draped Old South, The Train Wrecks are a hard-working band of songwriters and performers who love nothing more than good songs and a good show. They deliver a dynamic, original blend of Americana- ranging from outlaw alt-country and bluegrass to rootsy rock and beyond, all with a distinctive Southern swagger. Born in the vibrant bar and club scene in Savannah, GA, The Train Wrecks released their debut album, “Whiskey and War,” in 2007. Rave reviews and a growing reputation as a must see live act helped the band to branch out to surrounding markets in the Southeast. They’ve since been steadily building a fanbase in clubs across the region, while also finding some bigger stages along the way. They’ve opened for legends like Jerry Jeff Walker and BB King, alongside an expanding roster of regular club and festival dates. Earlier this year The Train Wrecks released their second album, “Saddle Up.” Building on their unique mix of Americana and rock, “Saddle Up” showcases the band’s solid songwriting and astute musicianship- and some exciting new directions for their signature sound. On the strength of their latest recordings and growing regional presence, The Train Wrecks are poised and ready to significantly raise their profile as songwriters and performers by continuing to write and record great songs and win fans through relentless gigging.

21st Amendment // San Francisco, CA www.21st-amendment.com // Location: 14 o Hell or High Watermelon (Wheat) This American wheat beer is brewed with real watermelon, for a flavor that’s surprisingly crisp, dry and refreshing – summer in a can. o Hop Crisis (Imperial IPA) This Imperial IPA breaks all the rules with more malt, more hops and more aroma. o Brew Free or Die (IPA) This IPA starts big and finishes clean leaving you wanting more. o Bitter American (Session Ale) This extra pale session ale has lower alcohol but all the flavor and hop you expect from a much bigger beer. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Abita // Abita Springs, LA www.abita.com // Location: 1

o Purple Haze (Lager) A crisp, American style wheat beer with raspberry puree added after filtration. Therefore, you may see raspberry pulp in the beer. The raspberries provide the lager with a subtle purple coloration and haze, a fruity aroma and a tartly sweet taste. o Jockamo (IPA) A traditional India Pale Ale made with the best pale and light crystal malts that give the beer a copper color and malty flavor. This full-flavored beer is hopped and dry hopped liberally with Willamette and Columbus hops from the Pacific Northwest. o Restoration (American Pale Ale) Made with Pale, Lager, Crystal and Cara Pils malted barley. It is liberally hopped and dry hopped with American Cascade and fermented with California Ale yeast. The end result is brilliant gold ale with a rich body, mild bitterness and a snappy fresh citrus hop flavor and aroma. o Amber (Vienna Lager) A Munich style lager brewed with crystal malt and Perie hops. It has a smooth, malty, slightly caramel flavor and a rich amber color. Abita Amber was the first beer offered by the brewery and continues to be our leading seller. o Fall Fest Abita Fall Fest (September – November) is an Octoberfest-style lager brewed with pale, Munich and caramel malts. iI is hopped with German Perle and Hallertau hops. The result is a full-bodied, malty lager with a bright amber color. Cheese pairings include Gruyère and Swiss-style cheeses. o Andygator (Helles Doppelbock) A creature of the swamp, is a unique high-gravity brew made with pale, malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops. Unlike other high-gravity brews, Andygator is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma. o Strawator (Dessert Beer) A take on the popular Strawberry Harvest Lager. It is a strong golden lager made with malted barley and wheat. Strong but light in color with a delicate hop flavor. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Ace Cider // Sonoma County, CA www.acecider.com // Location: 60

o Ace Perry (Cider) Made from apple and pear juices, this cider is 5% alcohol by volume with a lovely pear nose and a smooth mouth feel with a dry finish. It is gluten-free, has 110 calories and pares well with all spicy foods, especially Asian food. o Joker (Dry Cider) Made from 100% apple juice, this cider has champagne characteristics, yeasty with an alcohol of 6.9%. It is popular with both beer and wine drinkers and makes a great base of Jomosas, fresh OJ on Joker over ice or Snakebites, lager and Joker or Black Stalins, stout and Joker. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Allagash // Portland, OR www.allagash.com // Location: 17/Mixology

o White (Belgian Style Wheat) Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance. o Tripel (Golden Ale) This strong golden ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with suggestions of banana and honey in the complex palate. It has a remarkably long and smooth finish. o Dubbel This boasts a deep red color and a complex malty taste. The finish is dry with subtle hints of chocolate and nuts. The yeast asserts itself by leading a classic Belgian fruitiness. o Allagash White (Belgian Style Wheat) This is their interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Anchor Brewing // San Francisco, CA www.anchorbrewing.com // Location: 41

o California Lager Made with two-row California barley, Cluster hops and their own lager yeast, this all-malt brew is kräusened and laagered in the cellars at Anchor in San balanced depth of flavor and a smooth finish. o Steam Another brew that is processed in their cellars through kräusening. It smells like a sweet malt with some mild floral hops. The taste is a malt treat with undertones of caramel with just enough bitterness from the hops to balance. The finish is crisp with a lingering bitter sweetness. o Liberty (American IPA) This beer is brewed with a natural process called “bunging” which creates gentle carbonation, and the practice of dry hopping creates its unique aroma. With the champagne-like bubbles and distinctive hop bouquet, this is a very good ale – flavorful, balance, pleasant and highly drinkable. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ * Denotes Beer Available in the VIP Area.

beer fact: In 11th-century England, a bride would distribute ale to her wedding guests in exchange for donations to the newlyweds. This brew, known as Bride Ale, is the origin of the word ‘bridal.’ beer fact: One of the fastest ways to destroy a beer’s flavor is to expose it to sunlight. In fact, even the light from a fluorescent lamp is highly damaging. Every beer in the James Squire range is encased in brown bottles, the best protection for such a valuable drop.

Anderson Valley // Boonville, CA www.avbc.com // Location: 18 o Summer Solstice (Seasonal) A seasonal ale that is slightly sweet, malty session beer with a creamy mouth feel and clean finish. With hints of caramel in the nose and a touch of spice, it’s become affectionately known as “cream soda for adults”. The unique flavors and superior drinkability make for the ultimate refreshment on a hot summer day. o El Steinber (Dark Lager) This pours a really nice clear brown with a deep redness, a thick head with a good bit of nice lacing. Has a slight caramel to it with a hint of malt, which comes through as a solid dark brew. o Wild Turkey Stout (American Stout) Aged for three months in Wild Turkey barrels, this luxurious stout has deeply ebony hue and a beautiful mahogany head. The woody, vanilla-like notes imparted by the barrels mingle with aromas of fresh baked bread, toffee, and espresso and envelope the rich chocolate and roasted barley flavors with a fine bourbon character. o Boont Amber (Red Ale) Balance is what makes Boont Amber Ale so unique: rich, crystal malts give this beer a deep copper hue and contribute a slight caramel sweetness while the herbal, spicy bitterness from carefully selected whole-cone hops impart a crisp, clean finish. Hints of sun toasted grain, toffee, and fruit esters compliment the mellow, noble hop aroma. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Angry Orchard // Cincinnati, OH www.angryorchard.com // Location: 59 o Crisp Apple A Crisp and Refreshing Cider, its fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, ripe apple flavor make it hard to resist. o Apple Ginger Apple Ginger cider is unlike any cider you’ve had before. The fresh ginger and apple flavors blend together for a sweet, yet slightly tart taste with a distinct ginger aroma. The result is a smooth, refreshing cider that goes down easy. o Traditional Dry This traditional English-style cider is bittersweet and slightly spicy with a bright apple aroma and a dryness that makes you pucker. o Cinnful A tasty cider perfect for fall, Angry Orchard’s Cinnful Apple is bursting with fresh, crisp apple flavors and a generous dose of cinnamon. The festive flavors blend together on the palate to create a cider that’s as delicious as apple pie. Enjoy! o Strawman Strawman combines a distinct blend of juices from traditional culinary and bittersweet apples, which is then aged in oak. The result is a full-flavored, complex and balanced cider with wine-like characteristics, rounded out by apple and citrus notes. Its lingering, earthy finish is a homage to the origins of this unique cider. o Iceman Iceman uses the process of freezing the juice from culinary and bittersweet apples to produce a rich, complex and unique cider with a crisp apple taste and notes of caramel and toffee. This cider is sweet but not cloying. The addition of oak-aging yields a smooth and pleasing vanilla character. The result is a perfectly balanced, full-flavored cider that delights the palate with clean apple notes and a lingering toffee finish. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Back Forty // Gadsden, AL www.backfortybeer.com // Location: 37

Brash Brewing // Ipswich, MA www.brashbeers.com // Location: 44

o Naked Pig (Pale Ale) A delightfully crisp, hand crafted ale. The German malts provide a perfect balance to the five hop additions that go into every batch. This American pale ale is tasty enough for any craft beer newcomer, while the complex character is sure to please even the most discerning craft connoisseur. o Freckle Belly (IPA) This full-bodied India Pale Ale is loaded with fresh hops for a powerful blend of citrus, pine and fruit aromas. The firm malt backbone works well with the bold hop finish that everyone expects from an IPA.

o Texas Exile (American Porter) There is a rustic comfort about this beer that is undeniable. This Exile beer is brewed with coldpressed coffee and has a flavor of chocolate, roasted barley, soft smoke and oatmeal – in addition to the espresso-like flavor of coffee. o The Bollocks (IPA) Big citrusy aromatics, solid bitter backbone, and candy-like finish.

notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Brooklyn Brewing // Brooklyn, NY www.brooklynbrewery.com // Location 39

Bells Brewery // Kalamazoo, MI www.bellsbeer.com // Location: 20

o Oberon (Wheat) A wheat ale fermented with Bell’s signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas. The addition of wheat malt lends a smooth mouthfeel, making it a classic summer beer. o Amber This balances a mixture of toasted grain and light caramel notes with a range of floral, citrus and herbal hop notes, capped by a clean bitterness. o Two Hearted (Pale Ale) Its intense hop aroma and malt balance defines this ale. Hopped exclusively with the Centennial hop varietal from the Pacific Northwest, massive additions in the kettle and again in the fermenter lend their characteristic grapefruit and pine resin aromas. A significant malt body balances this hop presence; together with the signature fruity aromas of Bell’s house yeast, this leads to a remarkably, drinkable American-style India Pale Ale. o Midwestern Pale Brewed with barley from their farm in central Michigan, this Pale Ale stands apart from the model of completely hop-dominated pale ales, offering a noticeable degree of malt body to counter the hop bitterness. A blend of floral and herbal hop provides the aromatic and flavor highlights, alongside the distinctive contribution of our house ale yeast. A crisp bitterness finishes the experience without being harsh. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Blue Point Brewing // Long Island, NY www.bluepointbrewing.com//Location: 21

o Hoptical Illusion (IPA) This IPA is brewed with a generous amount of a selected hop that’s added five different ways for maximum hop flavor. This delicious, resiny, citrus-burst that you taste is the “Essence of the Hop” which is balanced by a malty backbone yielding an intense, golden ale. o Blueberry Ale (Fruit Beer) This fruity golden ale offers an unusual twist on brewing that turns out to be a wonderful blend of fresh blueberries matched with a distinctive, thirst quenching ale. They add 732 pounds of fresh, plump and juicy, handpicked, USA Northern Highbush Blueberries to every batch. o Summer Ale (Seasonal Ale) The delicious golden taste of this beer comes from a substantial portion of wheat malt added to a traditional barley malt mix which gives this delicious brew a unique tartness not found in many beers today. This light, thirst-quenching brew is best enjoyed on hot summer days. o Toasted Lager Copper in color, this popular and unique brew is made from six different malts, including English Pal, Crystal, Munich, Carapils, Wheat and Belgian Caravienna. It’s balanced flavor of malt and hops makes for easy drinking and the special lager yeast they use produces an exceptional, long-lasting smooth finish. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

BottleTree Beer // NC www.bottletree.net // Location: 38

o Red (American Amber) A really gorgeous amber. A super dark copper brown with giant, deep ruby reds throughout. It has a very nice malt presence with a big sense of chewy grains and a little bit of brown-spiced character. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Boulder Beer // Boulder, CO www.boulderbeer.com // Location: 11

o Hazed and Infused (Dry-Hopped Ale) This unfiltered amber is “Hazed” in its natural state and “infused” during dryhopping with Crystal and Centennial hops, creating a flavorful, aromatic brew unlike any before it. Tapping into the creative spirit that launched Colorado’s First Microbrewery, the brewers at Boulder Beer Company have blended together four different hop varieties to give Hazed a unique aroma, with just enough yeast for a full mouth feel and a smooth, easy finish. o Mojo (IPA) Pale in color but packed with flavor, Joho reflects the perfect balance of hop bitterness and malt character. The unique Amarillo hop creates a big citrus flavor with an ultra-crisp dry finish. o Hoopla (Pale Ale) This ale is dry-hopped with generous amounts of Glacier hops for a fruity, floralhop aroma and flavor that will have your taste buds dancing. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Boulevard // Kansas City, MO www.boulevard.com // Location: 56

o 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat With roots in two of today’s most popular brewing styles, 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat Beer is the result of careful cultivation by our brewers and cellarmen. Their efforts to craft a hybrid yielded a bumper crop of flavor; a delightfully distinctive ale with the aroma of an IPA and the refreshing taste of a wheat beer. o Singlewide IPA (American IPA) This American India Pale Ale boasts a heady combination of six varieties of hops, some of which were employed for dry hopping. o Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale Beginning with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

o Brooklyn Lager This lager is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Carmel malts show in the finish. “Dry-hopping” enhances the aromatic qualities of the beer, which is the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. o Oktoberfest (Seasonal) Brewed from the finest German malt and hops, this beer is true to the original style, full-bodied and malty, with a bready aroma and light, brisk hop bitterness. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Burnt Hickory Brewery // Kennesaw, GA www.burnthickorybrewery.com // Location: 22/Sports Bar

o Big Shanty (Stout) Made with real graham cracker crumbs and honey, it’s sweetness is only challenge by it’s strong roast and hop bitterness. A world class stout with an extreme amount of local flavor. o Cannon Dragger (IPA) A piney/citrusy/danky IPA, Cannon Dragger is aggressively dosed with “C” hops all through its journey from the grain to the glass. o Ezekiel’s Wheel (Pale Ale) Grainy malty yet wonderfully hoppy ale. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Chimay // Baileux, Belgium www.chimay.com // Location: 33

o Red Cap (Dubbel) This Trappist beer possesses a beautiful coppery color that makes it particularly attractive. Topped with a creamy head, it gives off a slight fruity apricot smell from the fermentation. The aroma felt in the mouth is a balance confirming the fruit nuances revealed to the sense of smell. o Blue Cap (Belgian Strong Dark Ale) This is a dark Trappist beer with a powerful aroma, the complex flavor of which improves across the years. It was first brewed as a Christmas beer, explaining the presence of a “vintage”. o This authentic Belgian beer, whose tinge of fresh yeast is associated with a light rosy flowery touch, is particularly pleasant. Its aroma, perceived as one enjoys it, only accents the delightful sensations revealed by the odor, all revealing a light but agreeable caramelized note. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Cisco Brewers // Nantucket, MA www.cicsobrewers.com // Location: 10/VIP

o Whale’s Tale (Pale Ale) Slightly sweet and caramel malty upfront with a nice fruitiness. Leads into a medium bitterness and fair amount of citrusy hop flavors. Finishes a bit sweet and malty. o Indie Pale Ale (American IPA) Pours dark amber with a tan frothy head. Some citrus and fruity notes with a predominate taste of grapefruit and orange. o Pumple Drumkin (Spiced Ale) Sweet pumpkin pie aroma with zesty autumnal spices and vanilla. o Bike Path Blueberry Bleer (Fruit Beer) So new it’s not listed on their website yet. It pours a faded plum color with a fast-rising, pink-hued head on top. Tiny effervescent bubbles race upward, creating a spritzy, sparkling wine-type action. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

beer fact: While beer has been made from many different grains through the ages, barley has proven to be the world’s most valued brewing ingredient. In fact, the word beer itself probably comes from the old Anglo-Saxon word baere, meaning barley.

o Boston Lager Samuel Adams Boston Lager® is the best example of the fundamental characteristics of a great beer, offering a full, rich flavor that is both balanced and complex. It is brewed using a decoction mash, a time consuming, traditional four vessel brewing process discarded by many contemporary brewers. This process brings forth a rich sweetness from the malt that makes it well worth the effort. Samuel Adams Boston Lager® also uses only the finest of ingredients including two row barley, as well as German Noble aroma hops. The exclusive use of two row barley not only imparts a full, smooth body but also gives the beer a wide spectrum of malt flavor ranging from slightly sweet to caramel to slightly roasted o Boston Ale When we opened our Boston Brewery in 1988, we created a special brew, Boston Ale, to mark the occasion. A “stock” ale with a distinctly American character, we use earthy English hops along with the sweetness of caramel malts, and ferment it as an ale and aged at cool temperatures. o Octoberfest In 1810, Munich celebrated the wedding of their Crown Prince with a special beer.  After 16 days the party ended, but the tradition continues. Our version of the classic Oktoberfest lager blends 5 roasted malts for a rich, hearty flavor while Bavarian Noble hops add a touch of bitterness. o Latitude 48 Samuel Adams® Latitude 48 IPA is a unique IPA brewed with a select blend of hops from top German, English, and American growing regions all located close to the 48th latitude within the “hop belt” of the Northern Hemisphere. The combination of hops in this beer creates a distinctive but not overpowering hop character. The beer is dry hopped with Ahtanum, Simcoe®*, and East Kent Goldings hops for a powerful citrus and earthy aroma. The hop character is balanced by a slight sweetness and full body from the malt blend. o Black Lager Careful, there’s a bit of mystery in this one - a dark, rich, and roasty beer that’s somehow smoother and less bitter than a stout. It was first brewed in the medieval forests of Germany.  Deep and full-bodied yet fresh and crisp. You won’t taste another dark beer like this one. o Tetravis Its deep complexity begins with a molasses sweetness with notes of dark fruits like raisin and fig and develop further with an undercurrent of tart spice from its distinctive Belgian yeast for a truly transfixing brew. o Sam Light Maybe every once in a while you have to drink your words. We swore we’d never make a light beer, but then we decided beer drinkers shouldn’t be punished by having to trade taste for calories. We decided to take on the challenge of a light beer, but it had to be on our terms. That meant starting from scratch. o Cherry Wheat Crisp and fruity with a hint of honey, this cherry brewed ale has surprising depth while being light on the palate. o Double Agent IPL Brewing innovation is about asking “what if?”. What if we gave an IPA a new identity and used some of our favorite West Coast hops, with their grapefruit, piney, & tropical fruit character, in a lager? The result is this boldly hoppy & and flavorful brew with the crisp smoothness of a lager. Cheers! o Dark Depths Dark Depths is an IPA or a hoppy porter brewed with a lager yeast for an interesting mesh of styles. Across the cold and brackish waters of the Baltic, the English Porter was transferred, from a mild ale to a dark and complex lager that confounds definition. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. // Chico, CA www.sierranevada.com // Location: 52

o Tumbler Sierra Nevada uses malt within days of roasting at the peak of its flavor to give Tumbler a gracefully smooth malt character. Two-row pale, crystal 40, chocolate and smoked malts give it a malty complexity. Challenger hops in the boil add balancing bitterness, while more Challengers and some Goldings give just enough hop flavor in the finish to balance all that malt. o Torpedo Torpedo is a big American IPA; bold assertive, and full of flavor highlighting the complex citrus, pine, and herbal character of whole-cone American hops. o Pale Ale Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a delightful example of the classic pale ale style. It has a deep amber color and an exceptionally full-bodied, complex character. The fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor are the results of the generous use of the best Cascade hops notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ * Denotes Beer Available in the VIP Area.

o Dank Tank Mean Joe Green (Imperial/Strong Porter) Rodger the Dodger and his Imperial Porter bone offense didn’t stand a bat wing’s chance when we dipped our Nicaraguan bean sack through his facemask! We blindsided his 8.5% Alc/Vol jock strap back to the fields to pick more beans, resulting in this Immaculate con-Catch-tion of intense forearm shivers of chocolate malt, a body like the Bus and blitzes of gridiron hops, all clotheslined by intense coffee overtones.

o White Thai (Belgian Witbier) This beer, inspired by the flavors of Southeast Asian cuisine, is a twist on the classic Belgian witbier style.

Wetten Importers, Inc. // Sterling, VA www.wettenimporters.com // Location Mixology

o St. Louis Premium Framboise This Framboise has a simple and straightforward character, not unlike the humble summer fruit with which it is flavored. Erring not on the side of cloying sweetness of sugary saccharined tutti-frutti candies, this brew sticks to something more vial – the market-fresh taste and sweetness of ripened ruby raspberries. With a characteristic limbic funk midway, the St. Louis Premium is as stalwart and stoic as the king for it was named. Aiming not at pretense and frivolity, the raspberry flavor is neither overly sour nor sickly sweet, its body neither obtrusively heavy nor ephemerally light. It is in sort a perfectly concocted fresh fruit Belgian Lambic. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Weyerbacker // Easton, PA www.weyerbacher.com // Location: 27

o Merry Monks (Belgian-Style Tripel) Pilsner malt combined with an abbey yeast strain yields a remarkable and complex flavor packed with notes of spice, banana and pear. Nicely balanced, with a moderate to dry finish. o Double Simcoe (IPA) This is a full flavored ale with hints of pineapple and citrus up front, a good malt backbone in the middle and a clean finish. o Blasphemy (Ale aged in Oak Barrels) Aged but not over aged, so they’ve picked up gentle vanilla oaky notes which compliment rather than super cede the complex qualities that already make QUAD such an incredible beer. o Tiny (Belgian-style Imperial Stout) You will find big chocolate and roasted notes, balanced with the Belgian flavors from the Abbey yeast strain. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Wild Heaven // Decatur, GA www.wildheavencraftbeers.com// Location: 45 o Invocation (Belgian-style Golden Ale) Belgian aromatic malts add hints of dried fruit, while generous Noble and West Coast hops deliver an earthy spiciness. It finishes semi-dry with lingering tropical fruits and spicy notes from Belgian yeast. o Ode to Mercy (Imperial Brown Ale) This beer overflows with bold flavors woven into a very balanced and approachable beer that finishes with creamy lingering hints of oak, coffee (specially blended by Athens, GA’s 1000 Faces), and roasted goodness. Bright citrus hops peek through from time to time, additional layers of complexity. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Woodchuck Hard Cider // Middlebury, VT http://www.woodchuck.com// Location: 58

o Amber The original Woodchuck. People liked it so much we made four more styles. The Amber is sweet (but not too sweet) with a nice golden color and crisp finish. o Granny Smith (Cider) Made from only Granny Smith apples, this one’s a lot more tart and quite a bit tangier than your average Woodchuck. If you’re a green apple sort of person, then this could be your Woodchuck. o Seasonal (Fall) There are a few things as spectacular as fall in the Green Mountains that surround their cidery. When you add cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of American white oak, you either have yourself some mighty fine cider or your standard Vermont tourism cliché. o Pear (Cider) To understand that Woodchuck Pear tastes like, take a deep breath, close your eyes and imagine yourself floating down a cool crisp mountain stream in the middle of July. Ok, got it? Now put an entire pear in your mouth. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________
