Hop Howler IPA

6.8% ABV | 78 IBU

**Available on draft and 12oz six-packs**

The Evil Thirst has been roving on a drought-ridden planet far away from Earth’s bounties, knowing for survival he must set forth on a long journey in hopes of quenching his endless need for refreshment. However, upon arrival on our fair planet, the villain quickly realizes the initial allure to the blue orb – H2O – will not truly satisfy his yearning. Maddened by his dehydration, he is driven to violent destruction, but soon gets even more than he reckoned for when the mighty Hop Howler emerges uproarious amidst the fertile, green landscape. Not only will the evildoer’s thirst be eternally extinguished, but it will also be satiated with voluminous amounts of aromatic, dank and resinous hops. Hop bombs of flavor from Citra, El Dorado, Jarrylo and Pacific Gem are hurled relentlessly, and explode in bursts to coat Evil Thirst’s alien tongue, rendering him harmless in a state of euphoria. Crisis averted, peace is restored throughout the Universe, as our vociferous hero Hop Howler sounds off one last time with a bellowing cry, offering assurance that all, good or evil, shall never go thirsty again.

Überlin Berliner Weisse

4.75% ABV | 13 IBU

2016 Virginia Craft Brewers Cup Gold Medal Winner

The origins of this cloudy, sour, wheat beer style date back to the 16th century in the region of northern Germany in and around Berlin. Dubbed “The Champagne of the North” by Napolean’s troops, this refreshing beer, brewed by Frederick the Great himself, can be enjoyed as is…or if adventurous, inject a blast of flavor by allowing the addition of traditional flavoured syrups such as Himbeersirup (Raspberry) or Waldmeistersirup (Sweet Woodruff made from wild baby’s breath). Your senses will witness a sharp tartness beneath a dry, fruity funkiness. Don’t forget that change will save you.

Phantasmic Belgian IPA

7% ABV | 70 IBU

Phantasmic East Coast IPA is anything but a typical American IPA. The malt character, including Pilsner malts, wheat malt and honey malt, rises to meet with the estery notes of Belgian abbey yeast to balance and support the hops. A blend of Motueka, Wakatu, Pacifica, Topaz and Pacific Gem hops from Australia and New Zealand, emerges from the malt foundation and blossoms into a sublime burst of flavors like citrus fruits, succulent melons and flowery herbs. More of the same in the nose, but the aroma wafts together into a bouquet of tropical flowers. Though aggressively hopped, this IPA is not overly bitter and promotes a dangerously session-like aspect that belies it’s 7% ABV.

It’s not just your senses beguiling you. When the Phantasmic appears, prepare yourself for an ethereal blend of notable hints of fruit and pine, reaching out to you from beyond the shadows of rich yeast and hops. Conjure the spirits of barley and wheat malts, and strike a balance between this world with theirs. Commence in the séance of flavor and unlock the secrets of the other side.
