Terrapin Beer Company Tiramisu-Hoo
What the brewers say
“Tiramisu-Hoo has all the attributes of a finely executed dessert; we have managed to create a beer that is layered with all the goodness you would expect from a succulent slice of Italian history.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Very strong maple aroma. Chocolate sticky buns made with crazy amounts of coconut and coconut oil and a thick layer of icing. Oh yeah, and don’t forget the candied pecans. This smells like a dessert-lovers mad dream.”
Flavor: “Wow! Flavor is everything that the nose suggested, with just a slight balance shift. Imagine a rich, pecan-laden coffee cake coated in maple syrup and chocolate frosting, washed down with a very sweet coffee. The coffee finish grounds it.”
Overall: “A great dessert beer to share! Nice smooth chocolate flavor. Perhaps a bit heavy, almost cloyingly sweet, but some people will love it.”

Two pillars of brew- ing history come together to release a beer that represents the origin and the evolution of brewing. Braupakt is deliciously drinkable, showcasing both Weihenstephan’s brewing prowess through their signature yeast and Sierra Nevada’s proclivity for big hops flavor. The initial impression on the palate is of a bouquet of aromas, including subtle touches of banana plus refreshing grapefruit from the American Chinook hops.
A flavorful craft beer that’s uniquely easy to drink? It’s true. Introducing Firestone Lager. While Firestone Lager may not be your father’s lager, it is just as drinkable—which is ultimately the point. In the words of Brewmaster Matt Brynildson, “Firestone Lager is all about enjoying a good, clean beer.”
New Belgium The Hemperor HPA®
Our brewers are always on the lookout for different hops varieties and the complexities and flavors new strains can bring. That’s where hemp comes into the picture. Without getting too nerdy, we found a unique way to recreate hemp terpene flavors in a beer, which complement the inclu- sion of hop flavors and hemp hearts (seeds) in a brand new, delicious way not to mention this beer is extremely dank! The flavors and aromas are so unique that it’s a style unto itself, hence HPA®.
Tröegs Nimble Giant
We had no idea that a little experiment with Mosaic hops would set us on a year-long path to a new double IPA. But seven small-batch Scratch beers later, we found the Giant. Nimble Giant—brewed with Mosaic, Azacca, and Simcoe—gracefully boasts grapefruit rind, pineapple, and honeysuckle notes with a hint of earthy forest floor.
