Double IPA8.0% ABV100 IBU

Heretic Brewing CompanyFairfield, CA

Evil Cousin is Heretic's take on a West coast imperial IPA. This beer is a bold, in-your-face hop monster. It has a light, easy drinking malt character that allows the hops to stand out. The hop character in this beer is intentionally on the dank side; big, sticky, and aggressive.

Black IPA11.5% ABV87 IBU

Drake's Brewing CompanySan Leandro, CA

Winds are changing again for Drake’s Jolly Rodger as we hoist sails toward unforgiving, bitter, black seas. This year Jolly is dark black with aggressive late and dry hop additions of Simcoe, Mosaic, and Chinook hops that give the beer a complex aroma with hints of citrus, resin, and unmistakable spiciness. Coming in at 11.5% ABV, 2013’s Jolly Rodger still maintains a delicious smoothness that reveals the interplay of malt and hops in what we call an Imperial American Black Ale. The dread pirate is back… Yo Ho.

Belgian Dubbel9.0% ABV30 IBU

Black DiamondConcord, CA

We added over 100 pounds each of locally sourced Zante currants and Black Mission figs to our Belgian-style Dubbel. This is aged in used Bourbon barrels for 12 months. During this time the warmth of the Bourbon emerges from the wood along with toasted oak and vanilla flavors. A triad of the base Dubbel, the barrel aged and fruit macerated beers are artfully blended. Whole vanilla beans compliment the wood and bring forth a velvety smoothness and richness. The fig flavor is forward on the nose along with the bubble-gum/banana ester derived during fermentation. The taste starts with the rich sweetness of fruit, carries through with a rich mellow center and finishes dry, allowing for another glass as you sit by the cozy fire.
