Bottle Release: Could Be An Illusion & Seeds Of Happiness

Our next bottle release features the return of our winter-time quarterly core stout as well as a brand new barrel-aged sour ale!

The bottles will be released on Thursday, February 3rd at all four taproom locations as well as for California shipping. Check out all the details below.





Imperial Stout with Coffee & Maple Syrup
11.6% ABV

Our winter-time core imperial stout, Could Be an Illusion, is back. Brewed with organic, extra dark maple syrup from Vermont and a blend of Brazilian and Colombian coffees roasted by our friends at Steady State, this beer packs a distinctive flavor punch thanks to the adjuncts being recirculated into the brew just before bottling. Flavors of milk chocolate, baklava, and nuttiness from the freshly roasted coffee loom from this jet-black wonderment. Its velvety and decadent full body will make you question whether it is real and magical, or just an illusion.

Price: $22 / 500ml

Available February 3rd at 9am.



Wine Barrel-Aged Sour Ale with Cherries & Black Currants
6.8% ABV

The time has come to reap the harvest from the seeds we sowed in late 2020…Seeds of Happiness, that is. This is our newest barrel-aged sour ale, aged for a year in red wine barrels before being conditioned with 1,200 pounds of organic cherries and black currants from Washington. Donning a ruby red color and light pink head, this brew brims with scents of cherry jam, raspberry, and rose water. Tastes of black currant, bright Beaujolais wine and French oak intermingle with subtle tannins and a tangy acidity on the palate, sure to leave you sipping happily.
