Aged for three months in two- and three-year-old barrels. Bright ruby, pungent aromas of black raspberry and fresh rose.

Aromas of cassis, black raspberry, licorice and black cardamom are complicated by cracked pepper and herbal nuances.

Due to the uniqueness & low productivity of these specially crafted beers, it is possible a beer could be on for only a very short time (in other words; we are not responsible for any inconvenience caused in the event this list has changed by the time you arrive at the bar) Therefore, please call us first...although this does not mean a certain beer won't run out before you get here...it's just the nature of the business, it is what it is...
With that said, we reserve the right to limit which Draft Beers we offer by the Growler Fill.
so, relax, choose another great beer on tap and have a cold one!
