#1 Real Ale - Tenebra Aeterna (2018)
Barrel-Aged Sour Porter Ale - 7.9% ABV - Blanco, TX
This barrel-aged sour Porter is marked by notes of dark, sour fruit and a tantalizing character of subtle roast and cocoa. Latin for “eternal darkness," it brings a shadow of dark malt into the realm of sour beers.
#2 Dogfish Head - Citrus Squall
Fruit Ale - 8% ABV - Milton, DE
The perfect storm of a double golden ale and a paloma cocktail brewed with grapefruit juice, blue agave nectar, lime peels and a touch of sea salt.
#3 Jester King - Snörkel
Farmhouse Saison - 4.2% ABV - Austin, TX
Snörkel is brewed with oyster mushrooms and alderwood smoked sea salt. It takes inspiration from German gose, but sets out to explore the curiosities of umami. Unfiltered, unpasteurized and 100% keg conditioned.
#4 Real Ale - Cease & Desisyphus (2017)
Barrel-Aged Barleywine - 11.3% ABV - Blanco, TX
A rich, booze-y Barleywine that’s been aged in rum barrels for 4 months. Expect complex flavors of caramel, toffee, molasses and an orange-y vanilla.
#5 Martin House - King of King's Cake
Cake Beer? - 10% ABV - Ft Worth, TX
This is a sweet, Imperial Blonde with notes of buttercream and frosting. It almost has a fried funnel cake/powdered sugar thing happening. It’s rad. Yes there is lactose.
#6 (512) - MainBrace
Barrel-Aged Brown Ale - 8.5% ABV - Austin, TX
Rum barrel aged imperial brown ale. Rum flavors meld with rich bready malts to form new notes of dark cherry, cola, amaretto, vanilla and more. Kind of a rum & coke vibe.
#112 Dogfish Head - 120 Minute IPA
Imperial IPA/Barleywine - 17% ABV - Milton, DE
An IPA in name alone, this monstrosity is the result of asking the question, "what would happen if we used ALL of the hops and malts we have in one beer?"
