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.

Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout

Stout – American / 6% ABV / 180 CAL / Comstock, MI /

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.

Blue Mountain Whizkey Sour Ale

Sour – Fruited / 5% ABV / 150 CAL / Afton, VA /

Sour ale fermented with German hefeweizen yeast, aged in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels on sweet cherries and sour cherry puree. A unique twist on the classic cocktail!

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

Brehon Brewhouse Killanny Red

A ‘grand’ Irish Ale with russet red hues and a slightly malty, nutty flavour.

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 – MBPM Mango Blackberry Peach Marshmallow

Sour – Smoothie / 6% ABV / 180 CAL / Herndon, VA /

Mango Blackberry Peach Marshmallow smoothie sour. Made with real fruit. Contains lacto. Mega Fresh is a series showcasing real fruit smoothie like sour creations.

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

Lost Rhino Shooter McMunn’s Irish Stout

Stout – Irish Dry / 4% ABV / 28 IBU / 120 CAL / Ashburn, VA /

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 Bye Dan

IPA – American / 7% ABV / 210 CAL / Ashburn, VA /
The Washington Commanders have sold! Tastes like 23 years worth of bitterness…

As brewers, we get the privilege to sample our beers straight from the tanks in all their raw glory. Some beers need a little polishing to get ready to go out into the world, while others—the hop-heavy, rowdy, crowd-pleasers—should just be left alone. We wanted to share this brewery-only treat with you, so we present this Hazy Little Thing, our unfiltered, unprocessed IPA, straight from the tanks and into the can.

Sierra Nevada Sunny Little Thing

Wheat Beer – Other / 5% ABV / 10 IBU / 150 CAL / Chico, CA /
Bask in the sunny little thing, a wheat ale made with citrus for radiant flavor that’s bold yet easy going, and balanced by a soft and smooth finish.

Sour – Fruited / 5.5% ABV / 7 IBU / 165 CAL / Chico, CA /

This slightly sour Wild Little Thing has just the right smack of tartness for serious refreshment, while guava, hibiscus and strawberry lend fruity-sweet depth and a bright pop of color.

Silver Branch Gnome For the Holidays

Farmhouse Ale – Saison / 7.6% ABV / 228 CAL / Silver Spring, MD /
