  1. 2016 Oude Geuze Boon Black Label

    Brouwerij Boon - 2016 Oude Geuze Boon Black Label

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    Let’s start here: This is probably the tastiest geuze that Boon has ever released. First offered in late 2015 to celebrate the brewery’s 40th anniversary, this drier take on geuze was inspired by the brewery’s collaboration with Mikkeller—which resulted in Oude Geuze Boon “Bone Dry Selection” back in 2015. This month’s featured Oude Geuze Boon Black Label is similar in overall profile—it’s also a blend of beers aged 1, 2 and 3 years inside oak...

  2. 10 Lords-A-Leaping

    The Bruery - 10 Lords-A-Leaping

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    We’re excited to get this latest release in The Bruery’s “The Twelve Days of Christmas” out to our Rare Beer Club members, as it’s one of our favorites in the series so far. A full-bodied dark imperial wit, it’s brewed with a mellow assortment of 10 different spices to celebrate its position in the lineup: allspice, anise, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, dried apples, ginger, mace, nutmeg and orange peel. For the lengthy list, the overall impact...

  3. Kind of Blue

    Alesong Brewing & Blending - Kind of Blue

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    This is bottle-conditioned with plenty of acidity, so some months in the cellar should be just fine, but do note that the bright fruit character will tend to dissipate over time. For pairings, that plush blueberry character had us thinking goat cheese: creamy chevre or, given options, Cypress Grove’s Humboldt Fog (one of our favorites for lambic-ish sour beers in general).

  4. Touch of Brett Mosaic

    Alesong Brewing & Blending - Touch of Brett Mosaic

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    The bottle conditioning and acidity give this some sturdiness, but we’d definitely encourage our Rare Beer Club members to enjoy this dry-hopped beer fresh, to savor more of those grassy and tropical elements. For pairings: citrusy salads, grilled vegetables, grilled seafoods.

  5. French 75

    Alesong Brewing & Blending - French 75

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    We’d be inclined to allow a little more of a cellaring window for this than Touch of Brett, as the core flavors seems a bit less volatile, but we’re also more likely drink it fresh given how it happens to be tasting now. The herbal focus suggests pairings of baked fish or roasted duck.

  6. Penalty Bock

    Red River Brewing Company - Penalty Bock

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    Brewed to celebrate the Shreveport Mudbugs NAHL junior hockey team (we love their angry crawdad logo), Penalty Bock presents an attractive reddish-amber hue with nice clarity and a fluffy head of khaki foam. Inviting malty aromas, as we expect and look forward to in this style, are apparent right away. Look for caramel, brown sugar, and a bready impression, bolstered by overtones of dried fruit reminiscent of fig or raisin, a hallmark of...

  7. Hay Ryed

    Red River Brewing Company - Hay Ryed

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    Pouring a crystal-clear, bright golden-straw color topped with an off-white cap of foam, this easy-drinking brew offers up a crisp aroma of pale malt, wheat, a touch of apple, and spicy-herbal overtones from the Saaz hop contribution and the deft use of rye. In the flavor, look for a core of crackery pale and pils malts, with wheat and acidulated malt working together to offer a mild tangy character. As in the aroma, a touch of spicy rye...

  8. Golden Prairie Ale

    Argus Brewery - Golden Prairie Ale

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    This superb altbier is brewmaster Ted Furman's original recipe, and the central flagship beer of his Golden Prairie brand, which he founded in Chicago in 1991. Now produced at Argus, this brew lives on, and the Chicagoland area is all the richer for it. Altbier (which translates from German as "old beer") is a style that emerged in Düsseldorf, and is the product of a style of beer-making older than the lager styles that Germany is most known...

  9. Bloodshot Red

    Argus Brewery - Bloodshot Red

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    Brewed to honor Chicago's independent record label, Bloodshot Records, this medium amber beer is brewed in the style of Extra Special Bitter, or ESB. An English style, it's not particularly bitter by American craft beer standards; rather, it's an amped up version of an English Bitter, with more malt and hop character, and generally a higher ABV. Bloodshot Red offers up an aroma that starts quite juicy with really pleasant citrus and floral...

  10. Imperial Barley Wine Ale (2015 Vintage)

    Ridgeway Brewing - Imperial Barley Wine Ale (2015 Vintage)

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    Pouring a bright copper-amber color with great clarity, this brew is quite aromatic. (And please do use a glass with this one for the best experience.) At 10% ABV, it's not a surprise to catch a whiff of alcohol, but underpinning that is a nice mix of caramelized malts and various fruity notes. Look for stone fruits akin to apricot and plum, along with light tones of dried fig and raisin, joined by some honey and just a wisp of citrus. On...

  11. Pickled Santa

    Ridgeway Brewing - Pickled Santa

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    Well, this somewhat strangely named beer is much tastier than one might expect from its name. The name reflects that the beer is spiced, but don’t worry – there’s no dill in this beer nor does it present any other pickle-like qualities. Many winter beers are spiced, and the catch-all term for the style is “Winter Warmer” due to the rather high (especially by traditional British standards) alcohol percentage that often exceeds 6% ABV. Ridgeway...

  12. 2015 Trappist Holiday Ale

    The Spencer Brewery - 2015 Trappist Holiday Ale

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    The brewery suggests aging their Trappist Holiday Ale upright, and its future ageability now (having been cellared by the monks of St. Joseph’s Abbey since 2015) is really up to you. We found the degree of caramelization in this beer at this point is exactly where we happen to be enjoying it over the longer trajectory of its lifetime. Its caramelization and subtle sherry levels from oxidation at this point seem ideal, but this is unfiltered...

  13. Piraat Special Reserve

    Brouwerij Van Steenberge - Piraat Special Reserve

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    The 10.5% ABV and modest hop reliance suggest this should fare well in the cellar. But do keep an eye on the level of oxidation in the form of additional caramel and sherry notes. As for pairing: working within its rum + apple + pepper triad seems the most promising route: smooth, vanilla- or cream-focused fare; lightly spiced roasted pork tenderloin.

    Humboldt Brewing Company - 2015 Black Xantus

    $0.00 Includes S&H

    We managed to snag a vintage run of this beer for our Rare Beer Club members, right about where we find Black Xantus to hit its full stride as a beer developing over time. Between the six months of barrel aging plus some time in the bottle, we think this is drinking beautifully right now, but that 11% ABV suggests this will still have a little more life to it in one’s cellar. Just watch the oxidation. The caramelization and dark fruits have...
