Aslin Totally Cannon

Sour – Smoothie / 5% ABV / 150 CAL / Alexandria, VA /

Our collaboration with Hidden Springs Ale Works! Totally Cannon is a Sour Ale with raspberry, hazelnut, chocolate, & milk sugar. The tart from the raspberry is balanced out nicely from the chocolate & hazelnut with a nice creamy mouthfeel from the milk sugar.

Approachable Hazy IPA brewed with Citra, Nelson, and Rakau

Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout

Named after the city where it all began, Kalamazoo Stout is one of our most classic recipes. This smooth, full-bodied stout offers a blend of aromas and flavors of dark chocolate and freshly roasted coffee, balanced with a significant hop presence.

Brehon Brewhouse Brehon Blonde

A refreshing, bottle conditioned, pale golden beer with a malty, biscuity finish.

Brehon Brewhouse Killanny Red

Honor Lady Liberty

Wheat Beer – Fruited / 5.5% ABV / 10 IBU / 165 CAL / Arcola, VA /

Belgian style American wheat beer that is brewed to be crisp, refreshing, and drinkable. Brewed with Pilsner and wheat malts, American yeast, and one pound per gallon of fresh tart and sweet cherry puree.

Juicy Brewing Luminous – CE – Citra Ekuanot

IPA – American / 7.2% ABV / 40 IBU / 216 CAL / Herndon, VA /

A refreshing new take on a timeless classic, featuring only the highest quality German malts and meticulous layers of Hop Character added from 5 separate hops used to brew this beer. Mango, Citrus, and Peach dominate the aromatics. Upon first sip grapefruit, melon, subtle pine, and a light malty toast dance on the palette in harmony. Finishing surprisingly smooth with clean hop character.

Juicy Brewing Mega Fresh – ABS Apricot Banana Strawberry

Sour – Smoothie / 5% ABV / 150 CAL / Herndon, VA /

Apricot Banana Strawberry smoothie sour. Made with real fruit. Mega Fresh is a series showcasing real fruit smoothie like sour creations. Contains lactose.

Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro

Stout – Milk / 6% ABV / 25 IBU / 180 CAL / Longmont, CO /

POUR HARD! Dark & delicious, America’s milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. Pouring hard out of the bottle, Milk Stout Nitro cascades beautifully, building a tight, thick head like hard whipped cream. The aroma is of brown sugar and vanilla cream, with hints of roasted coffee. The pillowy head coats your upper lip and its creaminess entices your palate. Initial roasty, mocha flavors rise up, with slight hop & roast bitterness in the finish. The rest is pure bless of milk chocolate fullness. Famous for their Nitro series, Left Hand Brewing was the first craft brewery to release a bottled nitrogenated beer. For the best experience, pour hard at 180 degrees into a 16oz glass. Different gas, different pour. Cheers! #PourHard

Left Hand Pumpkin Spice Latte Nitro

Pumpkin / 7% ABV / 210 CAL / Longmont, CO /

Pumpkin ale with spices and coffee

O’Connor El Guapo Agave IPA

IPA – American / 7.5% ABV / 70 IBU / 225 CAL / Norfolk, VA /

El Guapo — which, translated, means “the handsome one” — looks sexy, smells beautiful, and tastes great! It is a medium-bodied, agave-infused India Pale Ale, with a grassy, citrus nose and notes of sweet caramel, that finishes with a smooth but strong bitterness.

Old Ox Black Ox

Porter – Other / 6% ABV / 20 IBU / 180 CAL / Ashburn, VA /

A robust rye porter with hints of coffee and chocolate nicely balanced with a subtle hop influence. A substantial, malty ale, complex and flavorful with a medium body and a slightly roasty finish. The rich dark color is deceptively refreshing. The spice in the rye clears the palate. A sip will explain why we say this is a delightful combination of sweet and spicy!

Old Ox Hog Life Amber Lager

Lager – American Amber / 6% ABV / 180 CAL / Ashburn, VA /

Old Ox Keg Nog

Spiced / 8% ABV / 240 CAL / Ashburn, VA /

We’ve brewed up one Dickens of an ale. Wheat, oats, and lactose contribute to a silky mouthfeel while nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon add just the right amount of spice. Images of Fezziwig will dance in your head!

Tröegs Independent Oktoberfest Lager

Märzen / 6.1% ABV / 183 CAL / Hershey, PA /

Tröegs Oktoberfest is here! Our take on this timeless German style starts with a traditional brewing technique called decoction, creating a bright, dry maltiness. A kettle addition of Hallertau Tradition hops adds subtle floral and herbal undercurrents to this toasty sweet Fest Lager. Eins, zwei, g’suffa!

Vibrissa Beer Gracious Living

IPA – American / 6.6% ABV / 34 IBU / 198 CAL / Front Royal, VA /
