We finally got another long-awaited bottle delivery today. Below is our current bottle menu. A notable new bottle is the Anderson Valley Poleeko Gold, a genre-defining California pale ale. And we've got Deschutes Bachelor ESB back, giving us a full complement of three Deschutes beers. More hard-to-find bottles will continue to come, and any suggestions are welcome.
AleSmith Old Numbskull (San Diego, CA; $20/25.4 oz). An amazing West Coast style barleywine, with a huge malt profile and a very aggressive dose of premium domestic hops. 11.0%.
Anderson Valley Poleeko Gold Pale Ale (Boonville, CA; $7/12 oz). Poleeko Gold is synonymous with California-style pale ale; its golden color and generous use of Pacific Northwest hops create an unusual lightness and dryness for such a full-flavored ale. 5.5%.
