"This year's vintage is a blend of three ales aged in four types of barrels: Oloroso Sherry barrels from Spain, Chardonnay barrels from California, and Whiskey barrels from Colorado and Utah.
This blend gives Barrel Reserve 2014 a delicate and complex flavor, balancing the malt sweetness of our traditional Belgian brews with dry wine and sherry notes and finishing with a touch of oak."

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
