o Jamaica Red Ale (IPA) This is a unique malty red bitter ale. This mahogany hued ale brings an intense spectrum of hop flavors from the spicy aromatic to lingering bitter, all underscored by a full-bodied caramel richness. o Steelhead Double IPA Maltier, hoppier and more robust in flavor than regular IPA’s, Double IPA is dry hopped with Amarillo hops for a fresh citrus flavor and aroma. o Double Dread IPA (Seasonal) Pours a true ruby red of unexpected crystalline clarity. The Double Dread exhibits their devotion to a firm malt foundation. o Humboldt Haze (Imperial Wheat IPA) From the heart of the Emerald Triangle, Humboldt Haze Imperial Wheat IPA is a flavor packed hop odyssey with the rowdy character of the west coast style.

o Raspberry Ale Formerly known as 3R Raspberry Ale, this delightfully drinkable ale offers a crisp, yet complex, balance of subtle fruit flavor and aroma, with a zesty, citrusy finish. Brewed with natural raspberry puree and orange peel. o Pale Ale (Gluten Free) Formerly Off Grid Pale Ale – is reminiscent of a classic American Pale Ale, offering bold hop character and rich caramel and grapefruit notes with a clean yet distinctly hoppy finish. o Amber Ale A truly drinkable amber ale with a balanced malt profile, lightly toasted caramel notes and subtle citrus hints on the finish.

Magners Irish Cider // Clonmel, Ireland www. // Location: 58

o Original (Hard Cider) Unlike some other ciders, Magners® is made using fresh apples. Each one of our 17 carefully selected varieties are grown in our beautiful Irish orchards and local farms. We use only natural products. o Pear (Hard Cider) You will only find 100% premium quality pears in Magner’s Pear, which we filter to get rid of any impurities before fermenting slowly. That’s what makes this cider so fresh, fruity, and full of flavor. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Merchant Du Vin // Tukwila, WA // Location: Mixology

o Lindeman’s Franboise (Raspberry Lambic) Long before hops were common in most beers, various fruits and vegetables were used to season beers. The acidity of Lambic beers blends perfectly with raspberries. Magnificent aroma, delicate palate of raspberries with undertones of fruity acidity; elegant, sparkling clean natural taste. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

O’Dempsey’s Brewery // Atlanta, GA 15

o Cold One (Pale Ale) Its everything you look for in a pale ale and then balanced to perfection. o Inukshuk (IPA) This IPA combines a bitter hop bite and light citrus nose with just enough of a malt backbone to support it’s 7% ABV all together achieving a balancing act for your senses. o Your Black Heart (Russian Imperial Stout) With 90 IBU’s and 8% ABV you might expect something else but with an Original Gravity of 1,092, balance is restored. Enjoy! notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Moon River Brewing Company // Savannah, GA // 2/Sports Bar/VIP

o Apparition Ale (English Pale Ale) This English pale ale features ingredients imported from the U.K. This beer is driven by malt flavors of caramel and toast with a fruity English ale yeast character. o Swamp Fox (IPA) Like its namesake, this ale is known for the sneak attack. Hopheads will enjoy its assertive bitterness and huge floral & citrus, dry hop aroma. o Wild Wacky Wit (Old-style Belgian Wheat Ale) This Old-style Belgian wheat ale is spiced with Curacao bitter orange peel and coriander. Light and exotic … a party in your mouth. o Slow-vannah (American Pale Ale) Slow-vannah is an American pale-ale with a medium to full body and pallet, an apparent caramel malt flavor, a low to moderate hop bitterness, though a pronounced fruity, juicy American hop aroma/flavor. We “dry-hopped” the Slowvannah to achieve that cask-conditioned hop profile so adored by fans of our Swamp Fox India pale ale, a stronger cousin of American pale ales.

beer fact: A study released in February 2010 in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture revealed that a couple of beers can provide a healthy daily level of silicon, which is important for bone health. Beers high in malted barley and hops had the most silicon, with Pale Ales topping the list. Wheat beers and lagers are less silicon-rich.

Moonlight Meadery // Londonderry, NH // VIP

o *Wild (Fruit Mead) Pleasurable indulgence unprocessed wildflower honey and wild mountain blue berries from Alton Bay NH. o *Desire (Sweet) Enticing, complex blend of blueberries, black cherries and black currants balanced with basic elements of mead; honey, water and yeast. This mead won first place out of 353 entries at the New England Regional Homebrew Competition. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Mother Earth Brewing Company // Kinston, NC // Location: 57

o Dark Cloud (Lager) Steeped in a long history dating back hundreds of years, this “old-fashioned” beer is again in vogue. Lager is the German word meaning, “to store,” so this beer ages three times longer than ales do. “Dunkel” means dark in German, but don’t let the color fool you, it is by no means heavy, overbearing or bitter. o Sunny Haze (Ale) “Hefe” means “with yeast” so expect to find our hefeweizen cloudy in appearance due to its unfiltered status. Fruity hints and slight spiciness of this hefeweizen will mingle in your mouth, creating a crispness that’s as energizing as the sun itself. Banana and clove-like aromas add interest and depth to an already impressively well-balanced brew. o Second Wind Pale Ale Uncomplicated and down-to-earth, the mild hop bitterness and gentle floral and citrus like character of this beer result in an invigorating experience that flawlessly celebrates the close of an idyllic day. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

New Holland Brewing Company // Holland, MI Location: 54

o Dragon’s Milk (American Strong Ale) Dragon’s Milk is a 17th century term used to describe the strong beer usually reserved for royalty. This strong ale was aged on oak for 90 days. The aging process extracts flavors from the wood, which contribute to its complex character. Hints of bourbon flavor perfectly compliment its roasted malts to produce a beer fit for a King. o Mad Hatter Ale (India Pale Ale) This Ale is insanely dry hopped with Centennial Hops. This pale copper colored ale has a flowery hop aroma and a bold hop bitterness. Hop Heads Only Please! o Ichabod Pumpkin (Seasonal) Ichabod combines malted barley and real pumpkin with cinnamon and nutmeg in a delicious and inviting brew. After dinner, try it with your favorite dessert. notes: _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ * Denotes Beer Available in the VIP Area.
