Bourbon Barrel-Aged World Wide Stout

Dogfish Head Brewery | Milton, DE

ABV: 18.3%  |  IBU: N/A
$35.99  |  4-Pack Bottles

Sure, this beer is kinda pricey, but sometimes the good things in life aren’t cheap. The barrel-aging adds another layer of complexity and some extra booze to this already famously delicious and infamously strong imperial stout.

Noble King Hoppy | Farmhouse Ale

Jester King Brewery | Austin, TX

ABV: 5.3%  |  IBU: N/A
$15.99  |  750ml Bottle

I’m so glad Jester King is finally in Ohio! They’ve made a great name for themselves in the last decade by crafting funky, unique twists on classic farmhouse ales. This beer’s earthy and fruity character is augmented by the gentle use of noble European hops.

Scientist | IPA

Seventh Son Brewing | Columbus, OH

ABV: 7.0%  |  IBU: N/A
$10.99  |  6-Pack Cans

I’m super happy to have these guys down here in Fairfield. This is straight-up hop-forward, tropical, and floral and I love it! It’s not hazy or overly juicy, just a great beer! An IPA for IPA drinkers. Buy, drink, repeat.

Plaid Habit | Barrel-Aged Imperial Brown Ale

Boulevard Brewing Company | Kansas City, MO

ABV: 14%  |  IBU: 8
$14.99  |  4-Pack Bottles

This beer is sweet, strong, oaky, and super malty. Do I need to say more? Because this is an Imperial Brown Ale, it drinks more like a 10% ABV beer than the 14% ABV beer that is actually is! And, because it’s aged in Canadian whisky barrels, it has a sweeter taste than other similar barrel-aged beers. Grab this one before it is gone. P. S. If you don’t want to drink this beer right away, you can age it.
