ReDANKulous Imperial Red IPA – Founder’s Brewing Co.

redankulousFounder’s Brewing Company may have struggled in their early days, but they’ve risen to be one of the top ranked micro brews in the country. According to the founders, no pun intended, they stopped brewing “balanced” beers, and went all in on the big bold flavors they themselves love.

Our featured beer for August is Founder’s reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA. Unfortunately, our keg of this one just ran out, but you’ll find 4 packs of bottles on our shelves.

Hops is the key to this one, as you would expect. The brewer describes the hop profile:

“The spicy, piney, tropical complexities of Chinook, Mosaic and Simcoe hops hit you right away with their dank aroma—and they stick around.”

At 9.5% ABV and 90 IBUs, this one is a must try for fans of bold unique IPAs.

Viña Real Crianza

VinaRealOur featured wine for July, Viña Real Crianza, is made from grapes grown in Spain’s Rioja Alavesa region. Crianza is first fermented in stainless steel, before moving to French Oak, then American barrels. It’s racked every 5 to 6 months throughout the aging process.

The winemaker is sure you’ll find a good balance of dark berry fruit and oak in both the nose and on the palate.

James Sucking awards Viña Real Crianza 2014 a score of 92 pts. Tasting notes from James Suckling include:

“A perfumed nose of dried-flower, blackberry and currant character. Cloves and cinnamon too. Full-bodied, very fruity and concentrated with soft ripe tannins and a long, fresh and lightly oaky finish.”

Tenebris Barleywine – Adroit Theory Brewing Company

tenebrisThis month’s featured beer comes from Adroit Theory Brewing Company, a small brewery in Purcellville, Virginia. Adroit Theory specializes in barrel aged beers and “esoteric” artwork.

Tenebris is a Barleywine aged in Tequila barrels. Adorit Theory’s tasting notes put the barrel aging out front, describing Tenbris’ taste as:

“Sharp Tequila bite up front followed by a slightly spicy bite. Mid-finish hop bitterness is quickly enveloped by the sticky malt body.”

If you’re a fan of Barleywine, this unique twist on the style  is not to be missed!
