Boulevard Limited Release:  RYE ON RYE!

6/4 Packs Item # 09399  $64.50

BARREL-AGED RYE ALE.  Why Rye? This assertively flavorful grain is more often associated with whiskey than with ales. Even in that arena, it has largely been eclipsed by corn and barley, the sources of bourbon and scotch. But when we procured some seasoned barrels from our friends at Templeton Rye, we asked ourselves, “Why not?” Why not brew a rich, tawny rye ale, then mellow it in the warmth of charred oak rye whiskey casks? Two kinds of malted rye provide spicy sweetness, giving way to notes of vanilla, charred oak and the citrusy tang of Citra and Styrian Golding hops before easing into a dry, lingering finish.

Set your soul free with Platonic Love Double IPA!

Dogfish Head Limited Release:  Raison D’Extra!

6/4 Packs Item # 31987  $180.00  ($4.00 off 5 cases)

1/6 Bbls Item # 31988  $197.50

Our Raison D'Etre, with a little extra. This immodest brew, made with an obscene amount of malt, brown sugar and raisins, takes Belgian-style browns to new heights.  Raison D'Extra’s little brother Raison D'Etre was brewed to be the ultimate beer partner for steak. Plump raisins and beet sugars give the beer a similar DNA and color to red wine.  D'Extra takes this concept to the next level. What 120 Minute IPA is to 60 Minute IPA, D'Extra is the D'Etre. We’re pushing the limits of what a Belgian yeast can do (and we’ve discovered that’s somewhere in the ballpark of 15% to 18% ABV!)  D'Extra is extremely complex and a great candidate for aging. Sip on one with a loved one now, and stash a few in your beer cellar! As Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione says, “This puppy’s only getting better with age."   

Dogfish Head Limited Release:  Bitches Brew!

4/6 Packs Item #32032  $60.50  ($3.00 off 5 cases)

In honor of the 40th anniversary of the original release of Bitches Brew, Miles Davis’ 1970 paradigm-shifting landmark fusion breakthrough, we’ve created our own Bitches Brew – a dark beer that’s a fusion of three threads of imperial stout and one thread of honey beer with gesho root. It’s a gustatory analog to Miles’ masterpiece.

Featuring the album’s iconic artwork, created by the late Mati Klarwein, on its label, Dogfish Head’s Bitches Brew was unveiled at SAVOR, An American Craft Beer & Food Experience, on June 5, 2010, at the National Building Museum, Washington DC.

Haven’t experienced the Bitches Brew album? Two 40th anniversary editions of Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew – a Legacy Edition and a deluxe Collector’s Edition – are available.

According to Dogfish founder and president Sam Calagione, the ale is "the ultimate partner for chili or spicy curry chicken” and best enjoyed “sipped cool, not cold, from a snifter or red wine glass while listening to the Bitches Brew album.”

Sam was drawn to the alchemical spirits in Bitches Brew right out of college, acquiring a copy of the album “within months of the first time I brewed a batch of homebrew in my apartment in New York City. I listened to it when I was writing my Dogfish business plan. I wanted Dogfish Head to be a maniacally inventive and creative brewery, analog beer for the digital age. You could say that my dream was to have Dogfish Head, in some small way, stand for the same thing in the beer world that Bitches Brew stands for in the jazz world. You can imagine how excited we are to be doing this project 17 years after I wrote that business plan.”

“There’s a spirit of innovation, of creativity and individuality, that’s at the core of Miles’ music,” said Adam Block, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Legacy Recordings. “Sam and Dogfish Head approach their art from the same place and consequently the marriage is an easy and cool one.”

From our LOCAL Notch Brewery!

4/6 Pack Cans Item # 43125  $32.25

2/12 Pack Cans Item #  43426  $30.00 ($4 off 5 cases)

Baxter’s flagship Stowaway India Pale Ale put Maine on the IPA map in 2011 and there’s been no looking back. Double-dry-hopped with close to 500 pounds of hops per batch, Stowaway’s bitter character is of course enticing for any veteran hop head. BUT, the solid malt backbone makes this beer approachable enough and drinkable enough for any beer drinker to tackle, even with its don’t-mess-with-me 7% ABV.  To top it all off, after a long, full three weeks in the tanks, this full-bodied beer has a dry, crisp finish virtually unheard of in the style category.  It’s no wonder Stowaway is the best-selling Maine Made IPA in the northeast!

Limited Release from Dogfish Head:  The Perfect Disguise!

4/6 Packs Item # 31989  $46.50  ($2 off 5 cases, $3 off 10, $4 off15)

1/6 Bbls Item # 31990  $82.50

Is it an IPA disguised as a Kölsch or a Kölsch disguised as an IPA?

On the surface, The Perfect Disguise looks like a straightforward Kölsch with a crisp Kölsch yeast and traditional German malts and hops … but things aren’t always what they seem. With a quick sniff and a slight sip, you’re greeted by a creamy mouthfeel and full body thanks to the addition of a unique German chit malt - the first hint that this beer may be somewhat different.  Hiding deeper behind that German disguise is the double dry-hopping of an American Double IPA, with nearly 4 lbs. of German and American hops per barrel. It brings tropical flavors of citrus, tangerine, mango, gooseberries and peach.

NEW FROM TWO ROADS!  DRY & MIGHTY!

4/6 Packs Item # 03697  $37.00

1/6 Bbls Item # 03698  $75.00

WHAT IS DRY & MIGHTY?

Our newest seasonal release Dry & Mighty Brut IPA, is one of a new substyle of IPA that is spreading like wildfire throughout the USA and beyond. Dry & Mighty Brut IPA exhibits an assertive yet refined hop aroma and flavor while maintaining a low hop bitterness that is a big part of the current popularity of Hazy IPAs.

So What Is “BRUT IPA”, anyway?

As you may have noticed there are a ton of IPA’s in today’s craft beer market. The name is widely recognized by even the most novice craft consumers. What may not be evident is how many variations on the IPA theme actually exist. The style seems to keep splitting and introducing new versions and subsets right before our eyes.

One of the newest entries has made a bigger splash than most: Brut IPA. This type of IPA (India Pale Ale, in case you weren’t already aware) is said to have been created by a San Francisco Bay area brewer just a bit over a year ago. Part of this emerging legend is that this brewer wanted to come up with a counterpoint to the now ubiquitous Hazy IPA, aka New England-style IPA, suddenly being produced by brewers around the globe (Yours Truly has seen “New England-style IPA” proudly marketed by brewers in England, Vietnam and even more unlikely in California and Colorado!). Presumably, Brut IPA was also an attempt to re-establish the west coast as the driver of all craft beer trends. From my seat it is still way too early to predict the spread and longevity of Brut IPA over the coming years. Nevertheless we at Two Roads are putting our hat in the ring with Dry & Mighty our seasonal Brut IPA currently available wherever Two Roads is sold.

The name Brut IPA derives its name from the traditional French practice of categorizing Champagne by the degree of residual sweetness they possess. In order of residual sweetness there are; “sec”, “demi-sec”, “brut” and “extra brut” versions of classic French Champagne. “Brut” is the most popular type worldwide. “Extra Brut” is more dry/less sweet than Brut (it’s only a matter of time that we have “Extra Brut IPA” and “Double Brut IPA”, etc.). I digress but I think you get the picture.

Brut IPA is hyper-fermented compared to other IPAs and craft beers in general. In order to achieve this very high level of dryness brewers of Brut IPA resort to adding enzymes to convert higher-order sugars, normally not fermentable by brewer’s yeast, into sugars that can be fully fermented and contribute to a much drier beer with a higher alcohol content. A normal beer wort is roughly 80% fermentable by brewer’s yeast. A beer wort that has been treated with enzyme (glucoamylase, in case you are wondering) can come close to 100% fermentability. In the recent past, a craft brewer adding additional enzyme to their wort would have been viewed as heresy but today it is somewhat of a badge of honor. Such is part and parcel of how rapidly and to what degree the craft beer world fashion can change.

If Brut IPA is to be a counterpoint to Hazy IPA, as well as live up to its Champagne terminology, it had better be on the clear side, if not brilliant. The style is still very much under development but the majority that this reporter has seen have been clear. One common trait that both “rivals” possess is a low to very low hop bitterness. Hazy or sometimes “Juicy” IPAs tend to have a high level of sweetness and body. You know, the “Juice” thing. Brut IPAs require a low hop bitterness because there is relatively little sweetness left in the beer for flavor balance. Because there is little residual sweetness an appreciable amount of hop bitterness would come across as overly harsh and bitter.

So now you know some of the back story on Brut IPA. Sensory-wise let’s recap. A Brut IPA should have a moderately intense hop aroma, generally of the fruity and herbal direction. Very low maltiness due to the extraordinarily high degree of fermentation. Brut IPAs should be extraordinarily dry and light body and a low-moderate bitterness that is noticeable due to the lack of residual sweetness. In essence, it should come across as the “Champagne of IPAs.”

4/6 Pack Cans Item # 03705  $37.00

1/6 Bbls Item # 03632  $75.00

Introducing an unfiltered pale lager that’s made the unhurried, traditional way. Using the centuries old method of decoction mashing, this beer takes longer to brew and delivers more flavor.

Retired style but back by demand for a limited release:  Bantam The Americain!

6/4 Pack Cans Item # 73026  $51.00  ($4 off 3 cases)  (only 30 cases avail.)

It was first made to remind us of the rich and amazing flavors we experienced in our friend’s homemade batch of apple butter. Green Cardamom, Coriander, Clove, Cinnamon and Rose Petals create a rich and aromatic character that is luscious and deliciously edible. And why the French name? Well, anything said in French sound sexier, don’t you agree? And while this cider takes its name from the French, it’s cloudy like English Scrumpy and features traditional Persian spices, its taste is truly American; as American as apple pie.  (5.2%)

½ Bbls Item #  43015  $161.00

For the better part of this decade, Baxter Brewing has been known throughout New England as the brewery that puts the hops into the cans. There have been a lot of developments in hop varieties and brewing techniques in that time and now the old guard is up to some new tricks. For this brewing project, we decided to take a fresh look at the science of yeast and hop synergy and develop Hopothecary. One part yeast biochemistry, one part hop variety and processing innovation and a whole bunch of Brewer nerdery, we bring you the most aromatic and juicy DIPA we have ever put in a can. So put on your lab coat, get out a 12 ounce beaker and engage in some sensory analysis with us!  (7.7%)

Switchback Limited Release: DOOLEY’S BELATED PORTER!

4/6 Packs Item #  54408  $31.00

Our Porter features a blend of roasted and caramelized malts giving it a luscious malt signature that has an earthiness derived from the non-traditional use of ­flaked barley in the grain bill. The bold use of only Simcoe hops for both bittering and aroma highlights this hop varietal and balances the malt to create a robust, yet smooth finishing porter. Long ago, the owner gave his first employee, Chris Dooley, the honor of selecting the next beer style to produce. Dooley (never call him Chris) chose porter. However, the demand for Switchback Ale, our fl­agship brew, exceeded our capacity, preventing the release of this new beer for FIVE years. Our first kegs of Porter were finally sold in December 2009. Considering this long delay, we christened it Dooley’s Belated Porter.  (5.7%)     UPC:  8 53205 00409 6

1/6 Bbls Item # 31994  $82.50

½ Bbls Item # 31995  $165.00

It’s been a minute … but 75 Minute IPA is back! What began as a cask-conditioned ale at our Rehoboth brewpub back in 2011, quickly grew to become a cult-favorite amongst craft enthusiasts. From the groucho glasses that adorned the label to its slightly dry and lingering bitterness, 75 Minute was (and is) beloved by many.

Now in our latest iteration, this classic IPA is again brewed with maple syrup from Sam’s family farm in Massachusetts, while being continually hopped throughout the boil, and then dry-hopped with a slew of cascade hops. The result is a malty and earthy brew with citrusy-pine aromas, balanced by subtle maple notes.  (7.5%)

We went into the forests of north-central Pennsylvania and Georgetown, Del., to pick these fresh tips ourselves.  A dry yet doughy malt backbone lets the hops and spruce shine while still balancing out the bitterness, making this one an easy sipper.  (8.5%)


Dogfish 4th & Goal!

½ Bbls Item # 31998  $165.00

We look for unexpected flavors in unusual places. For this beer we sourced these crazy peppercorns from Rapti, Nepal that burst with spicy grapefruit aromas and paired them with grapefruit peel and grains of paradise.

The result is a hoppy golden ale with bright aromas of grapefruit, citrus and spice. Balanced with malt and hop flavor, 4th & Gold is the audible your taste buds have been waiting for!  (5%)

Greater Good PULP!

1/6 Bbls Item # 04053  $115.00

PULP (Pauls Ultimate Lupulin Protocol) is an 8% ABV IPA, the second beer created in our “8 is the New 5” Series of IPAs. PULP is “juice forward” IPA, possesses the aroma of an orange grove and tastes like nectar of the hop gods! We stayed true to the New Englander’s obsession with haze;  for a NE IPA PULP is considered slightly to moderately hazy. PULP is mauled with a blend of hops at the dry hopping phase to impart maximal juice and subtle bitterness.  This is a fan favorite for its easy-drinking mouthfeel and refreshing flavors.

Greater Good PULP DADDY!

1/6 Bbls Item # 04063  $115.00

PULP DADDY is an 8% ABV IPA created as an extension of the popular PULP (Pauls Ultimate Lupulin Protocol) brand; like PULP, this “juice forward” IPA has a predominant citrusy aroma and tastes like nectar of the hop gods!  We made one modification to the base process for PULP with a single objective in mind:  dial up the haze. Objective accomplished.  PULP DADDY is easy-drinking and refreshing with perfect nebulosity and mouthfeel.

½ Bbls Item # 43429  $215.00

For this foray into the flavor frontier, Baxter looked deep into the interior of France for inspiration. We conceptually merged the complex reddish brown sour ales brewed in Flanders with the light and fresh profiles of red wines from the Loire and Burgundy regions. The result is a medium bodied, ruby hued brown ale with subdued malty notes, contrasted by the tartness produced through kettle souring and the bright fruit notes from the fermentation of Pinot noir grapes, black currants, and cherries.  (6.5%)
