Another 100 points from Rate Beer for Great Divide's Chocolate Yeti!
This Denver-based craft brewery is a home town favorite and brews some extraordinary beers. The Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti is an Imperial Stout brewed with cocoa nibs to contribute a bit of pleasing bitterness. Vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne pepper keeps things lively, adding just a touch of heat to the finish. 9.5% ABV $9.99/22 oz.

So, somewhere in the Middle East about 2,000 years ago, three kings sent off on camel-back and followed this bright star. They brought gifts of stuff we've never really heard of, stuff like frankincense and myrrh. What's 'myrrh' anyway? It doesn't really matter. What matters is they didn't bring beer, and they should have. So, we're making up for their extraordinary oversight by offering this wonderful golden ale from The Lost Abbey brewery in San Marcos, California. Heading out to a Holiday party? Forget the myrhh, Stop by Amendment XXI and grab a 'Gift of the Magi.' Your host will be very happy! $10.99 - 750 mL
Batch 19. Banned. Back. Now on tap! (and in bottles)
We're proud to announce the long-anticipated launch of Batch 19 Lager! Because we're into all things Prohibition, we thought Batch 19 would be a great fit for our ever-evolving beer selection.
Here's the back story: Somebody found a lager recipe in a dusty basement dating back to the years just before Prohibition started in 1919. A few enterprising beer brewers decided to revive the recipe and the result is Batch 19, a crisp and refreshing full-bodied lager using a unique combination of Hersbrucker and Strisslespalt hops. 6 packs - $8.99

An all-American favorite, Pabst Blue Ribbon beer is a great beverage to turn to on hot Summer days. It's clear, pale-gold body is light and fizzy. Medium-bodied Pabst Blue Ribbon finishes with a light dusting of malts and hops.
With America's recent credit downgrading, Pabst Blue Ribbon is priced appropriately for a declining economy. Try one today! And don't forget, Labor Day is just around the corner!
