New Day Craft Mead & Cider by Breakfast Magpie

Black raspberry with honey (duh - it's a mead) with a bit of coffee at the finish. It's insanely easy to drink; sweet but not overly so.

Phenomenal. Oh holy shit yes. If you can find it, get it. You'll love it's simplicity that hides the complexity of its essence.

Prairie Artisan Ales by Sour Ale

This is actually the 4th Anniversary Sour. It's pretty solid, with a noticeable but not overpowering ginger flavor.

Oh my. Yes. Sour ale with red wine grape & dry hops. Lagunitas seriously just killed it with this experiment. Get it. Best beer of the year.

Clown Shoes by Chocolate Sombrero

This was excellent. The spices in this beer are not overpowering, but not too subtle. It's exceptionally smooth; highly recommended.
