Pilgrim's Dole
Wheatwine Ale
Ale Aged in Bourbon
The High Gravity Series From
New Holland Brewing
Holland, MI

Label disclosures:
Alc. 12% by Vol.
24.8 degrees Plato
Vintage 2014
Rich, malty body with unique caramelized character and hints of raisins, nuts and figs.
Pairings: fruit crisps, creme brulee, salted caramels, slow-roasted meats.
Star Baby IPA
Brenner Brewing Company
Milwaukee, WI

Label info:
ALC. 6.3%
We start with a Munich malt base, lightly roasted specialty malts, and throw in some wheat to round out the mouthfeel. Star Baby is hopped with Citra and dry-hopped with a bland of our favorite American hops. Higher temperatures and reduced yeast cell counts in an open fermentation tank produce the fruity esters in this complex and easy drinking masterpiece. Everything we do starts with art.
Brewed and bottled in the beer capital of the world.
Skinny Dip
Beer Brewed with Peach Juice
New Belgium Brewing
Fort Collins, CO

Label descriptions:
Take the plunge with SKINNY DIP, our brewed tribute to the lightly-attired summer months. Cascade hops frolic with bready malts for a crisp sip as refreshing as a freshwater dip.

Pale Ale

This single hop pale ale showcases the Citra hop for a well balanced beer that is delicate in body with a mild bitterness in the finish. Ferocious aromas of citrus and mango give way to pseudoSue's unique and refreshing taste that is clean and bright with just enough bite!
Summer Ale
Deschutes Brewery
Bend, Oregon

Label info:
Best by: 09/12/15
Bottle conditioned to keep your beer fresh and enhance the flavors our brewers intended. This may leave a fine layer of yeast in the bottom of the bottle.
Down goes another brewing dogma. Select malts and a heady dose of bold Amarillo hops deliver full-on flavor and crafted nuance in a spry summer style. Enjoy chilled as the days linger.
Crafted for explorers.
