Founders DKML – Imperial Malt Liquor Aged in Bourbon Barrels

founders-dkmlWe’ve been trying to get our hands on this one for awhile. Our distributor finally came through, and we’re proud to offer Founders DKML.

Founders DKML is a release from their barrel-aged series, an “Imperial Malt Liquor Aged in Bourbon Barrels”. Yes, a craft malt liquor.

Founders felt this “slighted” style needed an update, dry hopping and barrel aging to class up this classic style.

Stop by and pick up a 4-pack of DKML bottles while they lost. There’s no telling when we’ll be able to get our hands on more.

For more from Founders on their Barrel-Aged Series, check out this YouTube video from the brewery:

Pumpkin Craft Beer 2017

pumpkinbeer2017

Starting to think about pumpkin beer as the seasons shift? We’ve already got a full shelf of pumpkin beers to choose from. While pumpkin beer has become an annual tradition, many brewers do their best to put their unique spin on the style.

  • Southern Tier – Imperial Pumking
    An imperial at 8.6% ABV, ST describes this one as “Malty sweetness, vanilla, clove, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, pie crust”.
  • Alltech Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co – Kentucky Pumpkin Barrel Ale
    Another big one, weighing in at 10% ABV, brewed with kentucky pumpkins, appropriate spices, and aged in bourbon barrels.
  • Flying Dog – The Fear Imperial Pumpkin Ale
    Our local heroes at Flying Dog throw down in the Imperial category as well, with the 9% ABV “The Fear”. Brewed with local pumpkin puree and a “secret blend” of spices, The Fear pours a bit darker than many of it’s peers.
  • Blue Point Brewing Company – Mother Pumpkin Ale
    For a milder ale, try Blue Point. Pouring a golden orange, at 5.5% ABV, this one is a bit more sessionable.
  • Dogfish Head – Punkin Ale
    Dogfish Head returns with Punkin Ale, brewed with pumpkin meat and brown sugar, striking a nice balance at 7% ABV.
  • Evolution Craft Brewing – Jacques Au Lantern Belgian Pumpkin Ale
    Evo brews an unfiltered amber ale for their pumpkin brew, fermented with a belgian yeast strain, for a unique take on the seasonal favorite.
  • The Traveler Beer Co – Jack-o Traveler Pumpkin Shandy
    This is the pumpkin beer with the most session potential on our shelves so far. A “shandy-inspired” wheat beer, intended to balance “refreshment and seasonal spice”. 4.4%ABV.

Wines of this region are called Brunello Di Montalcino, or simply, “Brunellos”. Our featured wine this month Collosorbo Brunello Di Monatlcino is made from 100% Sangiovese grapes, as are all Brunellos.

If you’re looking for an introduction to the region and style, rest assured, Collosorbo has been rates among the best.

James Suckling awarded Collosorbo Brunello Di Monatlcino a score of 95 points. The tasting notes include:

“Lots of balsamic and dried-cherry character. Full-bodied, rich and silky with beautiful fruit and intensity. Long and flavorful. Gorgeous wine.”
– James Suckling

You’ll find this one on our shelve under “Highly Recommended”, or ask our staff to point you to it.
