Unfiltered Pilsner

Quintessential. Probably one of my favorite Buffalo pilsners. Have you ever had a Frappuccino from Starbucks? Do you know how their whipped cream leaves a delicious, velvety coating on your tongue? Yeah, this beer does, too.


Belt Line



D.A.N.K. Meaty fruit, papaya, star fruit, chanterelles. Folks, I think I’m going to be an IPA guy this summer.



The time is now


If an IPA and a Perry had a baby, and that baby fell in love with a saison, but it was forbidden, so they never actually had that baby, but they dreamt of what their baby would be like. This is that dream.



West side in bloom

Session IPA with Jasmine

It tastes like purple. Purple Flintstones vitamins. Purple everything. If grandaddy purp were a beer, it would be this beer.



Always sunny D

Pale ale with Sunny D

Lemon, lime, orange, and the salt crystal that I use for my pits. Rich palate. No B.O.


Thin man

Lo-Fi Mai Tai (from Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales)


On the sour side of tart. Brewed with almonds, sugar, honey with orange peel; pineapple juice and lime juice added.


Thin man & New Belgium

Sauvage Alliance

Barrel aged wild ale

Fruit forward, and the oak influence is pretty. A wee bit of mouse, but I like it a little wild.'
