vanilla beans, cinnamon and Oreos.
Arches Brewing Bob's
Your Uncle ESB. At 5.5% ABV, this ale offers a medium/light body accentuated by
mild fruitiness and an emphasis on hop aroma rather than hop bitterness. Look
for a dark copper color with notes of toffee and earthy tea.
Barleywine comes in at 10.6% ABV and was produced from a 100% two-row grain
bill that was triple mashed and boiled overnight on our direct fire system to
impart deep caramel and toffee notes with a luxurious mouthfeel. Hop aromatics arise
from Idaho Gem and Cascade hops.

New Zealand Pacific Sunrise hops. Inspired by the fine cask ales we enjoyed a

strain for six months in our Solera barrel program. After initial fermentation,
the beer was conditioned in a port wine/whiskey barrel for an additional four
months. This special cask contains mission fig puree to highlight the dark fruit
flavor and contrast beautifully with the rich tartness.
MAZURT The Time
of Returning is a 9.5% ABV "Nordic Quad" aged in an Independent
Distilling bourbon barrel. Generations have passed since Ragnar worshipped the

would have loved this Imperial Gose ale almost as much as she loved her kitty. The
sour beer packs fresh mango and Tajin (a blend of mild chili peppers, lime and
sea salt). Chelsy would say, "This beer is worthy of a flower crown."
