Captain Lawrence Cuvée de Castleton Batch #5

  1. $15
Captain Lawrence recently relocated to a new space in Elmsford, New York, that is about five times the size of its old brewery. This Cuvée, now in batch #5, is something special: a Belgian-style golden ale refermented with Muscat grapes and aged in oak wine barrels with Brettanomyces. The bouquet is vinous and complex, with bright aromas of green apple, lemon and…  — L.B.  (8/1/2012)

Avery Annual Barrel Series Uncle Jacob’s Stout

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $10
This is a seriously good sipping stout that is best enjoyed with friends, given the high alcohol and intense profile, but it’s remarkable how dangerously smooth and well balanced it actually is. Aged in first-use Bourbon barrels for six months, it’s loaded with heady aromas and flavors that can’t be ignored. Lush, sweet flavors of toffee, chocolate, crème de cassis…  — L.B.  (12/1/2012)

Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock

  1. $3
Celebrator is an iconic doppelbock, regularly earning awards and accolades from competitions and journalists. It pours a dark mahogany color with flecks of rich amber when held up to the light. The bouquet immediately entices with seductive notes of toffee, caramel, toasted cinnamon-raisin bread, dried plum and fig, all laced with threads of molasses and sweet…  — L.B.  (6/1/2012)

Stone Ruintation Tenth Anniversary IPA

  1. $8
Stone Brewing scores again with its Ruination Tenth Anniversary, an attempt to take its regular Ruination IPA to the max. Labeled as “ruining palates for 10 years,” this full-bodied IPA’s hops take center stage, as expected. Copper in color with a frothy head, it’s loaded with intense hop-fueled notes of pine, grapefruit pith and a touch of sweet clementine. A…  — L.B.  (9/1/2012)

Left Hand Polestar Pilsner

  1. $9
This is a stunning beer, with just about everything you’d look for and expect from a German-style Pilsener. It’s a clear, golden-yellow color with fine bubbles dancing up toward the fluffy white head. The bouquet is appropriately soft and nuanced, with delicate hints of fresh grain, bread, citrusy hops and grass. Those same notes follow through on the palate, but…  — L.B.  (6/1/2012)

Traquair House Ale

  1. $6
This is a classic Scotch ale, and although it’s not cheap, it’s definitely worth trying at least once. This is a beer to be enjoyed and savored with each sip, and not mindlessly guzzled, lest you miss the gorgeous subtleties and nuanced notes that make it so darn good. Lightly roasty caramel malts are the backbone here, with accents of dried figs and dates, fresh…  — L.B.  (2/1/2012)
