Crack of the Rock is a clear, straw colored blonde ale with a lovely dense, white creamy foam. The nose is full of freshly baked bread and rolled oats. The American hops offer subtle tropical (pineapple) and citrus (orange zest) characters as well. The body is light with a lightly toasted, biscuit flavour that finishes crisp, clean and quick. The mouth is left feeling soft and ready for more.

Unmarked Pot: This Belgian Ale has has a pale, straw color hue with a white, creamy foam. The aroma and flavor are consistent with Belgian yeast characteristics including bubblegum and banana esters. Spicy notes of coriander are also present in the aroma, but more so in the flavour. Spicy notes start off soft, but linger with slightly increasing intensity; well balanced with an orange, citrus aftertaste. Low bitterness is consistent with style.

Twice Barrel Shotgun is adark brown, opaque stout. The dense foam on top has a light tan, almost caramel-like color. Roasted coffee aromas are the first to hit the nose, followed by a cherry blossom chocolate characteristic. The body of the beer is full of dark cherry and chocolate flavours and roasted coffee. Carbonation is appropriate, allowing a smooth, silky mouthfeel and moderate finish. Low to moderate coffee-like bitterness is more pronounced in the aftertaste.
District 34: This robust porter is stunning to look at with its dark brown, almost black coloring and a thick, dense foam resembling the crema formed after a fresh shot of espresso. The aromatics are led by dark fruits like plum and dates, espresso, toffee and molasses notes. Almonds, hints of milk chocolate and hardwood smoke are also noticed on the nose. The robust flavours are similar to the aromatics which build in intensity during the slow finish, yet this porter is well balanced and minimal warming despite the higher alcohol content.
Left Right Here: Poursa hazy pale lemon yellow with a bright white, meringue colored foam. This low 4.5% ABV kettle sour has a bold, red grapefruit tartness with prominent citrus notes like lemon and lime on the nose and tongue. Good carbonation helps to cleanse the palate and makes this a very crisp, refreshing beer.
