    Founders' Blushing Monk

    Blushing Monk is brewed with a ridiculous amount of raspberries as well as with a notoriously feisty Belgian yeast strain. It pours a stunning deep berry red and, at 9.2% ABV, has a surprising kick.

  • 1/2
    Cigar City's White Oak Jai Alai

    A truly unique India Pale Ale, this iteration of Jai Alai is finished on white oak spirals to impart notes of vanilla, coconut, and a touch of dill to Jai Alai’s bold citrus and caramel character.

  • 1/2
    Troegs' Nugget Nectar

    This "excessively dry-hopped" Imperial amber ale has notes of mango, grapefruit pith, and pine.

  • 12/31
    Burial and Other Half's I Used to be an Athlete

    This collaboration between Asheville, North Carolina's Burial Beer Co. and New York City's Other Half Brewing is an double dry-hopped IPA brewed with Sabro, Vic's Secret as well as select 2018 crop Citra and Simcoe hops.

  • 1/2
    Avery's Barrel-Aged Vanilla Bean Stout

    A double dose of vanilla—derived from both bourbon barrels and the trio of Tongan, Ugandan, and Mexican whole vanilla beans—is complemented by the essences of chocolate, caramel and molasses to round out this luxuriously silky stout.

  • 1/2
    Firestone Walker's Gen-1

    Straight from Firestone Walker's propagator pilot brewhouse comes Gen-1, an unfiltered IPA. Gen-1 exhibits a style that bridges both the West and East coasts, with intense aromatics and flavors of peach, grapefruit, and pineapple.

  • 1/2
    Four Peaks' Peach Ale

    Little-known fact: Arizona grows some prime peaches. This golden ale is infused with the refreshing fruit to give drinkers all of the peach with none of the sweet.

  • 1/5
    Monday Night Brewing's All Y'all Pale Ale

    With a label designed by Atlanta's own Black Cat Tips, this is a citrusy, tropical, easy drinking, low-ABV pale ale that's just hoppy enough thanks to Citra and Simcoe hops.
