Block 15's popular Sticky Hands is getting a twist for a limited time. For Sticky Hands, Southern Exposure, the brewery incorporated a pair of iconic southern hemisphere hops – Galaxy from Australia and Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand – which together lend notes of passion fruit, white grape, gooseberry, and citrus.
Double IPA brewed with Oats.
Aged in bourbon barrels for six months, the spicy and fruity flavors of our beloved Belgian-style Tripel have formed a bold alliance with rich notes of wood and vanilla. Remarkably smooth as it is mischievous, Barrel Aged Tripel Dog Dare will only get better with age… if you’re up for the challenge to wait, that is. GLBC Gift Shop release.
The first ever collaboration in the Sweet Virginia Series is a Finnriver & Fort George cider and beer blend. Finnriver fermented a black cherry cider for the project and Fort George brewery a sour saison. Both were aged in French oak wine barrels until the final blending. 500ml bottles, very limited release.
The fourth beer in Great Divide's hyper-limited, hyper-local Local Knowledge series of single-batch pilot brews, this unfiltered German ale is malt-forward with tones of bread and toasted cracker and just enough earthy hop character for a crisp finish. The addition of Mandarina Bavaria hops brings a surprise hint of tangerine and citrus. Exclusively available on draft and in 6-packs at the Great Divide Tap Room and Barrel Bar.

Inspired by the progressive New England IPA beer style, we wanted to brew a more subtle, Belgian version for our hop-crazed fans. Brewed with heavy late hop and dry hop additions to give an aroma profile of ample fruit and citrus. Brewery-only, draft-only.
Hazy, malty Bavarian wheat classic is a perfect beer to cool off with in the Texas heat. Release party at brewery 5 pm with grilled cheese night by Chef John Russ.
Crawling Eye is a lambic nispired wild ale fermented in barrels for one year on their house culture. Sour, funky, and oaky. 6.3% ABV, 500 mL bottles, $13 ea, available at the taproom and online.
Ecliptic's popular UltraViolet is brewed with Oregon blackberries, but this version spent 10 months sleeping in 6-year-old rye whiskey barrels, developing a profile of flavors reminiscent to a fine cocktail.
Redhook is the latest Pacific Northwest brewery to jump into the New England IPA game. A mash up between hazy New England IPA and a tropical West Coast IPA, Bicoastal IPA glows with juicy pineapple and passion fruit hop flavors, and a dank, dry-hopped aroma. 6-pack bottles.
