Heavy Seas/Right Proper Café Au Lait Stout
Style: Milk Stout
Notes: A collaboration between Heavy Seas and Right Proper out of DC. This is a smooth, velvety stout that is heavily dosed with espresso.
Heavy Seas Single Cannon – Simcoe
Style: American IPA
Notes: Essentially the same base as Loose Cannon, hopped exclusively with Simcoe. This IPA will possess bright and tropical flavors of grapefruit and pine.
Yards Loral Lager
Style: American Pale Lager
Notes: Loral hops are peppery and citrusy, and are very suitable for pale ales and crisp lagers. This beer will finish clean and dry, with a subtle lemon-like zing on the back end.
Notes: Brewed with Bavarian authenticity, this open-fermented wheat beer has bubble gum, banana, and black pepper flavors like our forefathers brewed in the home land.
Flying Dog Dead Rise Old Bay Summer Ale
Style: Spiced Beer
Notes: Probably the most suitable beer for the Seafood Festival. The base of this beer is light and crisp, like a Kolsch or pilsner. Flying Dog takes a modern, localized tweak by “dry-hopping” this beer with an absurd amount of old bay.
Flying Dog Alpha Initiative #3
Style: American IPA
Notes: Alpha Initiative is a playground for Flying Dog’s brewers to explore, create, and analyze all things IPA. Pilot #03 is all about essential oils. To compliment the juicy tropical fruit notes of a Galaxy dry hop, a natural hop oil was added post fermentation. The oil is a blend of flavor and aroma fractions from a variety of hops to create an apricot, peach, and stone fruit profile.
Port City Oktoberfest
Notes: Port City’s Oktoberfest is a traditional Marzen-style lager, brewed entirely with German malts and hops. This beer is a brilliant amber with gently sweet flavors of crusty bread, leading to a clean, dry finish punctuated by a touch of noble hops. Served in the Keller/Zwickel style, Port City’s fall seasonal is unfiltered and completely naturally carbonated so, in other words, their Oktoberfest is full-on authentic.
Boulevard Saison Brett
Style: American Wild Ale
Notes: Saison Brett, based on Boulevard’s very popular Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale, is assertively dry-hopped, then bottle conditioned with various yeasts, including Brettanomyces, the wild strain that imparts a distinctive earthy quality. Though this version of a farmhouse ale was given three months of bottle age prior to release, further cellaring will continue to enhance the “Brett” character, if that’s what you’re after.
Boulevard Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale
Notes: When Boulevard’s brewers were experimenting with variations on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, the perfect combination of elements came together in fermenter number seven. You could call it fate, but they called it Tank 7, and so it is. Beginning with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.
DuClaw Gose O’s
Notes: Sour season is open. This gose is brewed with cantaloupe and black lava sea salt for a light, refreshing mix of sweet and salty flavors. The choice of orange and black ingredients is no coincidence, where DuClaw comes from, these are the colors of summer. Step up to the plate and swing away!
Style: American Strong Ale
Notes: Brewed in 2006, 2011, 2014, and now again in 2018 in an effort to push the limits of DuClaw’s own skills and imagination. Colossus is dark amber in color and full-bodied with a perceptively sweet flavor profile accented by notes of apple, as well as cinnamon sticks, orange peel, and coriander which are added during the boil. A surprisingly tame alcohol presence on the palate belies its staggering ABV that has ranged from 17.3 – 21%. This astounding alcohol content is achieved through fermentation alone; no alcohol is introduced at packaging nor is it distilled. Multiple grains are used in conjunction with three different yeast strains to produce a beer that simply defies classification and most laws of nature.
Jailbreak 19th Tea
Style: American Amber Ale
Notes: This beer is Jailbreak’s re-creation of the classic Arnold Palmer beverage: a light amber ale brewed with black tea and finished with lemon juice and even more black tea. Mild caramel malt aroma with notes of iced tea and lemon that carry into the flavor. A light medium body with a crisp drying finish. The perfect re-creation for your recreation.
Jailbreak Funk Sway Key Lime Berliner Weisse
Style: Berliner Weisse
Notes: Intensely pleasant key lime aromatics are punctuated by firm tartness, with a large supporting role from hefty proportions of malted wheat. Funk Sway is approachable to those perhaps unfamiliar with traditional Berliner Weissbiers, but its appeal to sour beer lovers is thoroughly undeniable.
Notes: By tradition, the first barrel of Maibock is tapped at the Hofbräuhaus in the last week of April, in time for the long-awaited warm month of May. The success story of Munich’s oldest bock beer goes back as far as 1614. This Maibock bestows a powerfully aromatic flavor of bready sweetness, caramel, green apple, and crisp noble hops. The release of this beer is a highly celebrated event in Germany, and marks one of the high points in the true-hearted beer lover’s calendar.
Bell’s Amber Ale
Style: American Amber Ale
Notes: The beer that helped build Bell’s brewery; Bell’s Amber Ale features both toasted and sweet caramel notes from carefully selected malts, balanced with herbal and citrus hop aromas. Capped by a clean bitterness, it’s incredibly versatile with food, but very tasty on its own.
Atlas Rowdy Rye Ale
Style: Rye Beer
Notes: Made with three varieties of hops and a generous amount of specialty malts, Rowdy offers a complex flavor and aroma that is both aggressive and fun. The addition of malted rye to the grain bill lends a peppery and distinct character to the beer which complements the bitterness and floral notes of brewhouse hop additions. Finally, this copper-hued ale receives a liberal addition of dry hops in the fermenting vessel, imparting citrus aromas and a crisp, clean finish.
Terrapin Watermelon Gose
Notes: Goses are hot right now. An almost forgotten style of beer has been resurrected by American breweries over the last few years, especially this year. Terrapin’s first approach at a gose, this beer is kettle soured with Lactobacillus for a tart, but refreshing brew. Watermelon aroma and flavor is complimented with a distinct lactic tartness and saltiness that is true to style. The combo of sharp sea salt and refreshing watermelon dances on the palate with each sip, creating the ultimate alternative summer beverage.
Brewer’s Art Resurrection
Notes: One of the original, founding fathers of the local craft beer scene here in Maryland, Resurrection has made itself a home to hundreds of draft lines throughout the state. Malt-forward with dark fruit flavors, this beer stands alone.
Monument City American Brown Ale
Style: American Brown Ale
Notes: This classic all-malt American Brown Ale has a sweet malty backbone with a noticeable but not overpowering hop presence.
Monument City 51 Rye IPA
Style: Rye Beer
Notes: Brewed with 51% rye, a traditional hearty grain, this unique IPA combines the earthy spice of rye malt with carefully balanced citrus hop notes. The 51 Rye IPA is Monument City’s claim to fame and the undisputed flagship beer. At 55 IBU, the tandem of Cascade, Centennial, Citra, and Warrior hops bounce off the spiced grain profile yielded by Rye, Pilsner, and Caramel malt.
