Our​ ​friends​ ​at​ ​Craft​ ​Republic​ ​have​ ​done​ ​it​ ​again.​ ​​ ​A​ ​plethora​ ​of​ ​tasty​ ​treats​ ​hit  the​ ​stores​ ​today​ ​-​ ​fresh​ ​off​ ​of​ ​their​ ​delivery​ ​truck.​ ​​ ​Sooo…​ ​if​ ​a​ ​​“Case​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Monday’s…” has​ ​you​ ​seeking​ ​liquid​ ​relief​ ​-​ ​we​ ​have​ ​several​ ​cases​​ ​​of​ ​new​ ​options!

Here​ ​are​ ​a​ ​few​ ​highlights…

From​ ​staff​ ​favorites​ ​​Evil​ ​Twin​ ​​we​ ​see​ ​a​ ​new​ ​shipment​ ​of​ ​their​ ​fantastic​ ​gose  ‘A’​ ​Is​ ​For​ ​Apricot.​ ​​ ​​This​ ​tart/sour​ ​wheat​ ​beer​ ​is​ ​brewed​ ​with​ ​sea​ ​salt​ ​and​ ​apricot​ ​puree.  Lip​ ​puckering,​ ​fruity​ ​and​ ​refreshing​ ​-​ ​this​ ​beer​ ​didn’t​ ​stay​ ​on​ ​shelves​ ​long​ ​the​ ​last  time​ ​we​ ​had​ ​it​ ​in​ ​stock.​ ​​ ​Sold​ ​in​ ​4pk,​ ​12oz​ ​cans.

Stouts​ ​and​ ​collaborations​ ​are​ ​strong​ ​suits​ ​for​ ​​Evil​ ​Twin.​ ​​ ​​Bible​ ​Bomb​ ​​is​ ​their  collaboration​ ​with​ ​​Prairie​ ​Artisan​ ​Ales. ​​Previously​ ​released​ ​by​ ​Prairie​​ ​​in​ ​12oz  bottles,​ ​this​ ​newest​ ​iteration​ ​is​ ​brewed​ ​and​ ​CANNED​ ​at​ ​their​ ​normal​ ​contracted work​ ​house​ ​​Westbrook.​ ​​ ​​Yes,​ ​Cans!​ ​​ ​And​ ​16oz’rs​ ​at​ ​that!​ ​​ ​These​ ​are​ ​extremely  limited​ ​and​ ​being​ ​sold​ ​as​ ​singles,​ ​1pp.​ ​​ ​We​ ​also​ ​see​ ​super​ ​limited​ ​quantities​ ​of Even​ ​More​ ​JCS.​​​ ​​Schemed​ ​by​ ​E.T​.​’s​ ​Jeppe​ ​Jarnit-Bjergsø​ ​as​ ​a​ ​tribute​ ​to​ ​​Trillium Brewing​ ​​co-founder​ ​Jean-Claude​ ​Tetreault,​ ​this​ ​stout​ ​emulates​ ​the​ ​flavors​ ​of​ ​the Italian​ ​espresso/gelato​ ​drink​ ​​affogato.​ ​​​​Trillium​ ​actually​​ ​​brews​ ​a​ ​beer​ ​called​ ​​Affogato. Even​ ​More​ ​JCS​ ​​is​ ​an​ ​imperial​ ​stout​ ​brewed​ ​with​ ​lactose​ ​and​ ​conditioned​ ​on​ ​coffee​ ​and vanilla​ ​beans.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​also​ ​only​ ​being​ ​sold​ ​by​ ​the​ ​single​ ​can,​ ​1pp.

Stillwater​ ​Artisanal​ ​​has​ ​been​ ​rolling​ ​out​ ​the​ ​canned​ ​hits​ ​the​ ​past​ ​few  months.​ ​​ ​They​ ​have​ ​stepped​ ​up​ ​their​ ​hops​ ​game,​ ​and​ ​today​ ​brings​ ​two​ ​great​ ​additions  to​ ​their​ ​recent​ ​output.​ ​​ ​​G13​ ​​is​ ​a​ ​wild​ ​IPA​ ​aged​ ​on​ ​cedar,​ ​and​ ​comes​ ​in​ ​4pk​ ​12oz​ ​cans. Spaced​ ​​is​ ​a​ ​low​ ​gravity/session​ ​IPA​ ​that​ ​comes​ ​in​ ​4pk​ ​16oz​ ​cans.

To​ ​top​ ​it​ ​off,​ ​we​ ​have​ ​a​ ​few​ ​limited​ ​beers​ ​from​ ​​Omnipollo.​ ​​ ​​While​ ​we​ ​don’t  see​ ​a​ ​huge​ ​volume​ ​of​ ​their​ ​beer​ ​in​ ​this​ ​market,​ ​but​ ​when​ ​we​ ​do​ ​it​ ​is​ ​usually​ ​quality.  Cans​ ​of​ ​​Lustro,​ ​Nebuchadnezzar,​ ​​ ​​and​ ​​Pleroma​ ​​are​ ​available​ ​in​ ​short​ ​supply​ ​at​ ​all​ ​3 locations.​ ​​Lustro​ ​​is​ ​a​ ​“White​ ​Ultra​ ​Light​ ​IIPA.”​ ​​ ​With​ ​a​ ​contradictory​ ​name​ ​like​ ​that,  why​ ​​not​ ​​give​ ​it​ ​a​ ​try?!​ ​​ ​​Nebuchadnezzar​ ​​is​ ​an​ ​imperial​ ​IPA​ ​that​ ​is​ ​strong​ ​on​ ​tropical  fruit​ ​notes.​​​ ​​Pleroma​ ​​is​ ​perhaps​ ​the​ ​most​ ​interesting​ ​of​ ​the​ ​bunch.​ ​​ ​​ ​A​ ​“Raspberry  Creme​ ​Brulee​ ​Sour​ ​Ale,”​ ​this​ ​sour​ ​ale​ ​is​ ​brewed​ ​with​ ​raspberries,​ ​lactose​ ​and​ ​vanilla.  Dessert-style​ ​sours​ ​have​ ​risen​ ​in​ ​popularity​ ​lately,​ ​and​ ​this​ ​falls​ ​right​ ​in​ ​with​ ​the  bunch.

Come​ ​and​ ​see​ ​us​ ​at​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​stores​ ​and​ ​pick​ ​up​ ​a​ ​couple​ ​new​ ​brews!​ ​​ ​We​ ​would  love​ ​to​ ​see​ ​you!​ ​​ ​Being​ ​Monday,​ ​I​ ​should​ ​also​ ​remind​ ​you​ ​that​ ​today​ ​is​ ​​GROWLER  MONDAY.​ ​​Every​ ​​Monday​ ​all​ ​growler​ ​fills​ ​are​ ​20%​ ​off.​ ​​​We​ ​know​ ​how​ ​Mondays  can​ ​be,​ ​so​ ​come​ ​see​ ​us​ ​for​ ​a​ ​cheap​ ​pour!

Cheers!
