An alcoholic beverage produced by the saccharification of starch and fermentation of the resulting sugar. The starch and saccharification enzymes are often derived from malted cereal grains, most commonly malted barley and malted wheat. Most beer is also flavoured with hops, which add bitterness and act as a natural preservative, though other flavourings such as herbs or fruit may occasionally be included. The brewing process causes a natural carbonation effect, although forced carbonation is also used. The preparation of beer is called brewing.

Bell’s Two Hearted and Oberon
Bell’s Two Hearted Ale is defined by its intense hop aroma and malt balance. Hopped exclusively with the Centennial hop varietal from the Pacific Northwest, massive additions in the kettle and again in the fermenter lend their characteristic grapefruit and pine resin aromas. A significant malt body balances this hop presence; together with the signature fruity aromas of Bell’s house yeast, this leads to a remarkably drinkable American-style India Pale Ale.
Bell’s Oberon (Seasonal) is a wheat ale fermented with Bell’s signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas. The addition of wheat malt lends a smooth mouthfeel, making it a classic summer beer.
After earning his Ph.D. in brewing from the University of Brussels in Belgium, an honor only a handful of brewers have achieved, Keith came back stateside with the idea of crafting beers inspired by Belgian styles, but with a twist. His first interpretation turned out to be our most popular beer, Blue Moon® Belgian White* and the start of the Blue Moon Brewing Company®.

Adolph Coors was born in 1847 in a German town known today as Wuppertal-Oberbarmen. At the age of 14 he began working at the Henry Wenker Brewery in Dortmund, and his determination led him to become an American legend. Adolph Coors considered that water was the key ingredient for a perfect beer. Therefore, he decided to locate Adolph Coors Company in Golden, Colorado in 1873. The Rocky Mountains are the primary source of the water used in the beer.

A hoppy nose and assertive-but-balanced flavors of pale malts and citrusy floral hops from start to finish. Oskar Blues launched its canning ops in 2002, brewing and hand-canning Dale’s Pale Ale in the Lyons, ColoRADo, brewpub. America’s first-craft-canned mountain Pale is a hearty, critically acclaimed trailblazer that changed the way craft beer fiends perceive portable beer (6.5 percent ABV and 65 IBUs)
Yes, the capital of the United States of America now has a beer to call its own. A beer brewed within the city limits and available citywide. A beer representing a delicious and uniquely American blend of North American and European techniques and ingredients. A beer that looks just as inviting in a pint glass at the neighborhood bar as in its handsomely designed can on a picnic table at an Appalachian campsite. A beer that pairs just as well with summer’s barbecued bounty as with a hearty winter stew. A beer crafted in our nation’s capital that reflects the great state of brewing in the United States today.
Devils Backbone (DB)
We take inspiration from the classic brewing traditions of Germany, England, and Belgium as well as our peers in the craft brewing industry who bring vibrant new flavors and ideas to the world of beer.

Dogfish 60, 90 and 120 Minute
60 Minute IPA is continuously hopped — more than 60 hop additions over a 60-minute boil. 60 Minute is brewed with a slew of great Northwest hops. A powerful but balanced East Coast IPA with a lot of citrusy hop character, it’s the session beer for hardcore enthusiasts!
90 Minute IPA was the first beer we continuously hopped, allowing for a pungent — but not crushing — hop flavor.
120 Minute IPA (Limited Supplies) Clocking in at 15-20% ABV, 120 Minute IPA is continuously hopped with a copious amount of high-alpha American hops throughout the boil and whirlpool, and then dry-hopped with another pallet of hops. Unfiltered and abundently hoppy, it’s the Holy Grail for hopheads!
We brew 120 Minute IPA a few times a year, but it goes fast. If you find some grab a few bottles — some to enjoy and some to age.
Fat Tire and New Belgium Ranger
Fat Tire has an IBU (International Bitterness Units) value of 18.5, which is very low for American-Style Amber/Red Ale beers, meaning it is significantly less bitter than other beers in its style. While a higher IBU does normally mean a more bitter and hoppy beer, darker styles of beer will mask hop bitterness. Take a look at the style characteristics below to see how dark the beer is.
Ranger (Seasonal) is clear amber India Pale Ale beauty bursts at the starting gate with an abundance of hops: Cascade (citrus), Chinook (floral/citrus), and Simcoe (fruity) lead off the beer, with Cascade added again for an intense dry hop flavor. Brewed with pale and dark caramel malts that harmonize the hop flavor from start to finish.
Founder’s Brewing Co.

Flying dog-Raging Bitch
In 1990, George founded the Flying Dog Brewpub in Aspen, Colorado. From that brewpub to a full-fledged Denver brewery (co-founded by George and his longtime friend and partner, Richard McIntyre**) in 1994, and then to our current state-of-the-art brewing facility in Frederick, Maryland, Flying Dog continues to make sense.
Our famous beer began with a trip across Europe, when Goose Island founder (and unabashed beer lover) John Hall took a tour across the continent. Pint by pint, he savored the styles and selections of brews in every region, and thought to himself, “America deserves some damn fine beer like this, too.” Craft brewing wasn’t widely known at the time, but upon return from his European sojourn, John set out to change all that. He settled down in his hometown of Chicago—a city perfect for craft beer, with rapidly evolving tastes and the largest system of fresh water on the planet.
Two Irish brothers with limited brewing experience. A city that shuttered its last production brewery in the early 80s. A neighborhood in serious need of a facelift. In 1986 when Patrick and Daniel Conway opened their fledgling operation in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood, the odds were stacked against them. Fortunately, they surrounded themselves with a staff of passionate, knowledgeable people, and from the start committed themselves to bringing a sophisticated, diverse selection of craft beer to their home state. Two decades, multiple awards, and a whole lot of stories later, Pat and Dan Conway celebrate over two decades of brewing exceptional beer for their adventurous and discerning customers.
It all starts with just one man, but it’s not down to a single ‘eureka’ moment. The history of GUINNESS® beer, draught, or stout is a stirring tale of inspiration, dedication, ingenuity and effort. It’s over two centuries of sublime brewing craft, a remarkable knack for spreading the word and more than a few leaps of faith. It’s the story of how a unique Irish stout became, with a little magic, one of the World’s best-loved beers.
The archetypal lager. Heineken is a super-inoffensive lager with a stronger, bitterer taste than most internationally mass-produced lagers. It’s perfectly carbonated, pours a straw yellow colour, with little or no head to speak of. It goes down smoothly when it’s ice cold.
500 years of hard work went into making this beer that features the aroma of orange peel, coriander and herbs that the merry monks imported from sunny Curacao. Speaking of which: pouring Hoegaarden is just like letting the sun fall into your glass: light yellow and naturally murky. And the soft foam adds a cloudy finish. And then there’s the soft taste, light and slightly sweet and sour and with subtle citrus notes.
Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale
Award-winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale® is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Our Kentucky Ale® is aged for up to six weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels from some of Kentucky’s finest distilleries. Subtle yet familiar flavors of vanilla and oak are imparted to this special ale as it rests in the charred barrels. Pleasantly smooth and robust,
A well-rounded, highly drinkable IPA. A bit of Caramel Malt barley provides the richness that mellows out the twang of the hops.
In the fifties, an extraordinary meeting took place that all beer enthusiasts should raise their glass of Leffe to. The abbey’s Father Abbot Nys became acquainted with Albert Lootvoet, a master brewer. Passionate about the future of the brewery, Father Nys was upset to have to witness how, since the unpleasant stay of the French revolutionaries, the brewery had slowly fallen into decline and had eventually had to close its doors in 1809. Such a magnificent place could not be forgotten, he believed, and he vowed to bring the Leffe beer back. Father Nys and the brewer set about the challenge with vigour…and succeeded. Shortly after, the Leffe brewery was back in full effect. After Leffe Brown, a beer that shone brighter than the sun saw the light of day; they named it Leffe Blond – a beautiful chapter for Leffe indeed.
Our flagship beer, Loose Cannon wins people over at first smell. The carefully cultivated interplay of Simcoe, Palisade, and Centennial creates a most fragrant IPA – its nose bursts with notes of grapefruit, herbs, and pine. Bitterness is somewhat subdued by the floral quality that pervades the taste.
A brewery in South Burlington, Vermont. It began production in 1994, and is currently owned by Costa Rican company Florida Ice & Farm Co. It brews four year-round beers and several seasonal products and one-off batches.
We use 17 varieties of apples, waiting until they drop before pressing and filtering them in the traditional way. We take time to ferment the cider and even more time to let it mature, up to 2 years in fact, tasting it along the way. Sure, there are faster ways of making cider, but then it wouldn’t be Magners.
Miller Light Cans
At Miller Brewing Company, we put quality above all else. We’re proud of the care that goes into the production of all of our beers and have been brewing great-tasting beers with the highest-quality ingredients since 1855.

O’Doul’s has a mild, sweet taste with a slightly dry finish. O’Doul’s Amber has a rich, slightly sweet taste with flavorful hop finish.
Old Ox Brewery
Our session IPA has a surprisingly satisfying mouthfeel, an amazing hop aroma and a smooth finish. Light malt sweetness gives way to a juicy citrus and pine nose. Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe hops dominate this beer. But there is just enough malt body to maintain balance. All of this hoppy goodness is delivered in a very reasonable 4.5% ABV package.
Was founded by the Najera family is a Mexican pilsner-style beer. It was first brewed in 1900 when three Germans opened a brewery, the Cerveceria del Pacífico in Mazatlán. Cerveza Pacífico is named so because the Pacífico brewery is located in the Pacific Ocean port city of Mazatlán, in the state of Sinaloa, México. Its label includes a picture depicting a lifesaver encompassing a hill with the port’s lighthouse hill, known locally as “Cerro del Crestón.”
Red Stripe was first produced in 1938 from a recipe developed by Paul H. Cotter (the son of founder E. P. Cotter) and Bill Martindale. Originally, Red Stripe was brewed in Galena, Illinois, one hundred years before being brought to Jamaica.
In 1939, the Tito Brothers, owners of the Latrobe Brewery, decided they wanted to do their own thing. That thing became Rolling Rock.

In 1909 the residents of Shiner, Texas, didn’t strike gold. They struck water. And shortly thereafter, they learned that they could turn that water into some pretty tasty beer. Today, we still brew every drop of Shiner with the same pure artesian well water that’s wet our town’s whistle for more than a hundred years. They say some things never change, to which we say “Prosit!
We’ve shaken up traditional tastes by brewing a spiced Belgian-style wheat ale with real orange, lemon and lime peels and then added a little coriander spice to the mix.

Pale Ale began as a home brewer’s dream, grew into an icon, and inspired countless brewers to follow a passion of their own. Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic, yet it remains new, complex and surprising to thousands of beer drinkers every day. It is—as it always has been—all natural, bottle conditioned and refreshingly bold.
Our rotating beers are brewed with the flavor of the seasons in mind, each beer with its own unique and inviting character, available for a limited time.
Smuttynose makes a lot of different beers (47 different ones in 2014!). We also make a lot of different IPAs. Finestkind IPA, Bouncy House Session IPA, Shebang Triple IPA, Noonan Black IPA, Schmutzig Bavarian IPA, White IPA…you get the idea. One obvious hole in our efforts to keep up with the world’s collectively still-growing hops jones is offering a double IPA all year long.
Stone Go To IPA
Since Day One, we’ve been abundantly forthright and fully transparent about our lust for hops. It’s led us to craft many an IPA, most of them imperial—some intense for their time and all timeless in their intensity. For Stone Go To IPA, we embrace our hop obsession in a new way, funneling an abundance of lupulin-borne bitterness into a “session” IPA that delivers all the fruity, piney character of a much bigger IPA. To accomplish this, we employ “hop bursting,” a new technique wherein an irrational amount of hops is added during the final phase of the brewing process to coax out extreme flavors and aromas while also imparting a burst of desirably pleasant bitterness. The result is an alpha-acid-rich beer that fans can enjoy more of without missing out on the assertive hop character you, like us, crave.
After the ripest apples are harvested, they arrive at the mill where they’re washed and crushed. This pulp is pressed to extract pure juice, which is then concentrated and stored (with the apples’ natural sugars acting as a preservative). The concentrated apple juice is then fermented and left to mature, allowing smoother flavors to develop.
Victory Golden Monkey and Summer Love
Golden Monkey: A magical, mystical Monkey whose golden soul glows with the wisdom of the ages. This warming, flavored ale is rich in the spirited tradition of Belgian-inspired brewing. Our Golden Monkey is both playfully delightful and profoundly satisfying. Exotic spices from the East round out this global journey to joy. Get on board. This Monkey’s bound for glory!
Summer Love (Seasonal): At Victory we believe that the very best ingredients are necessary in order to brew the very best beer. Here, German malted barley, a mix of European and American whole flower hops, 45 unique yeast strains (for our wide variety of beers), and the highest quality local water is blended to create our refined brews.
Note: Victory is one of only a few breweries in the country that uses whole flower hops. While almost all other breweries used pelletized hops, Bill and Ron insist on using the whole-flower varieties. This unprocessed form of hops imparts better flavor and aroma to beer.
Old Style Pilsner
Brewed by Molson Inc. at its Vancouver brewery. Created in the pilsner style, it has been brewed in western Canada since 1926. Old Style Pilsner was first brewed in 1926 by Fritz Sick at the Sick’s Lethbridge, Alberta brewery. An acidic, acquired taste, the beer was and still is brewed after the formula of the House of Lethbridge, which can be seen in the top left hand side of the label.
Port City Beer

All are made from the highest quality ingredients available and are a celebration of their raw materials. All are delicious, easy to drink, well balanced and enhance a meal or drink well on their own. All possess a complexity of flavor that hold the drinker’s interest and invite another sip.
Enjoy summer year round with our refreshing take on the Belgian Wit beer. Crisp and refreshing, Optimal Wit tastes like Sunshine and Happiness!
Mike and Dave started out as homebrewers, developing recipes on a homebrew lab system in Mike’s basement. What began as a hobby, soon became the main focal point of their attention. The duo then realized that building a brewery in D.C. was just the type of project they had been looking for. They began writing business plans, searching for a suitable property to house the brewery, and discussing the project with local friends and business associates as a potential investment opportunity. With an unwavering dedication to crafting and brewing unique, complex, forward thinking beers the guys set out a path for the brewery with the purpose of creating highly innovative drinking experiences.
