Elevator Brewing Co.
"Big Vic" Imperial Mogabi Wheat IPA
Amber color. Aromas of roasted nuts and dark caramel with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a tingling, elegant, dried fruits, fig bread, and lemon pepper finish. A rich, malty British styled Imperial IPA, is such a thing exists and it apparently does now.

Cidrerie St. Nicolas
Petite Normandie Cider
Salmon pink color. Aromas of fermenting apples, straw, and Brazil nut with a supple, tangy, effervescent, fruity light-to-medium body and a seamless, interesting, crisp green apple, blood orange, and chalk finish. A vibrant, racy cider with great table appeal.

Royal Manor Meadery
Draggin Green Apple Cider
Gold color. Aromas of honeyed apple and delicate spice with a supple, tangy, petillant, off-dry medium body and a polished, medium-length melon, citrus, and vanilla finish. A delicious, fruity, and lively apple cider.
