Sprecher Brewing Co.
Generation Porter
Nearly opaque medium brown color. Delicate, baked, buttery creamy toasty aromas and flavors of chocolate covered raspberries and rye crispbread with a soft, tangy, finely carbonated, very sweet medium body and a graceful, compelling, carefree black forest cake, nutskin, and latte finish. A fun, fruity flavored porter with nice balance and drinkability.

Viru
Premium Lager
Brilliant light gold color. Delicate, toasty aromas of fresh baguette and tortilla, roasted corn husk, and clay with an even, soft, fizzy, fruity medium body and a smooth, charming, medium-length alfalfa sprouts, starfruit, flour, and canned corn finish. A nice easy lawnmower beer.

Revolver Brewing
Death Ray IPA
Bright copper color. Mild, herbal aromas of chocolate coffee cake, roasted nuts, herb muffin, and tea with an even, bright, fizzy, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, medium-length bitter greens, pepper, dried grapefruit, and roasted root vegetables finish. A very mellow savory IPA in the British vein.
