 Adnams "Broadside" ESB, England 500ml (Previously $5)

Abbaye de St. Amand Blonde Ale, Belgium 330ml (Previously $4)

 

Adnams Brewery has been under the same family ownership since 1872. The tradition of brewing dates back six centuries in Southwold, England. Adnams Broadside contains two malts (Maris Otter Pale and Caramel) and two hops (Goldings and Fuggles). 7.3 percent by weight, 42 IBUs

2012 Almanac Beer Company "Winter" Witbier Brewed With Oranges and Ginger, California 750ml (Previously $16)

 

2008 Amager Bryghus "Julebryg" Danish Holiday Ale, Denmark 500ml (Previously $10)

This noble winter beer winter offers complex aromas of fruit, alcohol and hops. In the mouth it is slightly sweet with a hint of burnt caramel. It is also quite bitter, amazingly, and finishes with a persistent note of spicy hops. A brew for all seasons, but especially those cooler months when 9% abv is called for in a brew! 

Brouwerij De Dochter Van De Korenaar "Bravoure" Smoked Ale, Belgium 11.2 oz (Previously $5.49) - limited

De Dochter Van De Korenaar translates to "the daughter of the corn ear is an old Flemish synonym for beer dating back to the 16th century. Now reincarnated as the moniker of a new, tiny craft brewery from the Belgian enclave of Baarle-Hertog (actually located about 10 kilometers across the Dutch border). And when De Dochter opened its doors in 2007, folks immediately started taking notice. Despite its newness, the beers turned out by this little gem suffer from no lack of experience. Brewer/owner Ronald Mengerink has been brewing beer since he was 16. His Bravoure is incredibly complex but still designed to be easy-drinking; perhaps the most subtle and balanced smoked beer we've ever come across.

Brouwerij De Dolle "Oerbier" Strong Dark Ale, Belgium 11.2oz (Previously $6)  

Chouffe "McChouffe" Belgian Ale 750ml (Previously $12) - limited

High Water Brewing "Aphotic" Baltic Porter, California 22oz (Previously $15)

Seasonal release. Vintage: 2011. Released: January 10, 2012. Brewmaster's Notes: "This beer is one of my favorites. It was a blast to brew it and was really an evolving process. One third of the beer was barrel aged in 18 Year old Elijah Craig bourbon barrels, another third was aged in premium Brandy barrels and the final third was aged in stainless. After 4 months of aging the three different variations were combined back together resulting in the blend you have in front of you. Copious amounts of Carafa 1,2 and 3 as well as chocolate malts and Midnight Wheat malts were used. Deep, dark and delicious!!!!"

Marble Brewery Double, England 750ml (Previously $20) - limited

Microbrasserie Charlevoix "Dominus Vobiscum" Double, Canada 500ml (Previously $8) - limited

The Belgian-style dubbel has a complex aroma of anise, candied fruit, and raisins. A subtle bitterness blends with licorice, mocha, and sarsaparilla, revealing Madeira wine, caramel, and peppery spice in the finish. This is the most difficult-to-make beer that Charlevoix brews, it is unfiltered, allowing the beer's complexity to evolve and change over time. 8.5% ABV
