La Chouffe!! La Chouffe!!

La Chouffe is on fire!!

We don't need no water...


... just a crisp, effervescent mouthfeel with complex notes of cloves, cardamom, oranges, and sweet malts.

And, actually, a glass of water would be nice too. Stay hydrated.

As Gueuze as it Gets

Gueuze fans wonder at the splendor of Lindemans Gueuze Cuvée René.

Bubbles of excitement rush to meet your delighted face, while exquisitely tart & funky yeast aromas flow into your nostrils.
Upon hitting the lips of the fortunate imbiber, a gorgeous balance of tartness & sweetness, fruits & grasses, smoothness & crispness.

Here is a fine Gueuze that holds the wisdom & intensity that comes with age alongside the frivolity & naïveté of Lambics in their youth.

New Policies Regarding Beatniks!!

Since the inception of our tiny beloved Acreage, in the brilliant green days of yore, we have firmly upheld one edict: no beatnicks shall enter the pastures of our fairest Six Acres. NO BEATNICKS.

Now, thanks to the brave actions of persons unknown, the edict has been torn down from the aged brick upon which it was mounted, & removed to locations afar. Our fair Acres now finds itself opened to & overrun by cultured wanderers, radical idea-makers, rhythmic thinkers, emboldened wordsmiths, displaced creatives, & the like.

We find ourselves at a loss amongst this inspirational flora.

And thus, we plead with you: keep an eye out for the brave soul who has brought equality & opened the Acres to these vagabonds, so that our edict may be returned to it's home upon our wall & the beatnicks who look to sow culture in our fruitful fields will know that they are unwanted.

No Beatnicks

Elysian Avatar Jasmine IPA

Avatar Jasmine IPA Shining, shimmering, splendid.
Tell me: when did you last let your heart decide?? Avatar Jasmine can open your eyes; take you wonder by wonder.

A dazzling world I never knew... German Northern, Glacier, & Amarillo hops finished with dried Jasmine blossoms. Indescribable feeling.
Hold your breath it gets better. Every turn a surprise.

I'll chase it anywhere.

The Hallowed Eve

Autumn wind of eve,
blow away the clouds that mass
over the moon's pure light
and the mists that cloud our mind,
do thou sweep away as well.
Now we disappear,
well, what must we think of it?
From the sky we came.
Now we may go back again.
That's at least one point of view.

This one… it’s gone wild…

It's that same ol' story, but this time with a lil' twist, see?

That beer comes from behind the bar, just like before, that part is sure enough... And the fella?? Well, he can't wait to raise the glass - but that's where everything changes.

After that first sip, fella's eyes start lookin' different... strange like. "This ain't quite like before. Ain't quite like that last time." Before you know it, the wild takes holda him...
I'll be darned if it don't change the inside of his head, right then and there. It's the complexities, ya see? That there's the part of ol' Little Sumpin' Wild Ale that gets ya.

So, some say that fella's not right no more. But we think he's just fine.
