I was worried you would be too panic-stricken from oh, you know, the methane gas escaping from the Arctic, the outbreak of an untreatable virus, our poorly secured nuclear weapons, the violent conflicts spread across Eurasia, our border crisis, our vanishing and toxic drinking water, the impending Hawaiian hurricane sandwich, and what-not to even chance opening your eyes, let alone your browser. Well, here you are anyway! Whether it's bravery, non-chalance, recklessness, or sheer ignorance that got you here, I promise: it's safe. Beer news, and that's it. Isn't that a nice warm blanket of wool over your eyes? This month, fresh batches of Snaggletooth Bandana and Butterfly Flashmob will continue to roll out in draft form, along with some new releases and one returning favorite.
We're no Westphalians, but our tastebuds tell us that Altbier is the pride of Düsseldorf--perhaps even its greatest moment since Johann Wilhelm II. Ours is deep copper-colored, packed with layers of nutty, toasted malt aroma and floral, grassy hops. The fermentation character is clean, bitterness assertive, and body medium. Classic and delicious. Available now on draft. Read more about the Royal We.
Our extra special bitter is medium-bodied with a complex toasted, nutty, light caramel malt character. Floral, herbal hops and apricot-like esters contribute to a delicate, pleasant aroma. It's a balanced, drinkable English-style ale, brewed to tradition with just the right malts for the job. Available on draft, mid August. Read more about Chubgutz.
You know, they just doesn't depict the agonizing efforts to build a RICO case as satisfyingly as they used to.

It's balanced and easy-drinking with a grassy hop aroma, light bready malt sweetness, and firmly bitter finish. Available on draft, late August. Read more about Der Bingle.
