A well-hopped American interpretation of the richest and strongest of the English ales. The hop character should be evident throughout, but does not have to be unbalanced. The alcohol strength and hop bitterness often combine to leave a very long finish.

Monkey Paw Mcgavins Plaid Monkey
Scottish Export 80     5.8%
Monkey Paw Brewery, San Diego, CA

Cleanly malty with a drying finish, perhaps a few esters, and on occasion a faint bit of peaty earthiness (smoke). Most beers finish fairly dry considering their relatively sweet palate, and as such have a different balance than strong Scotch ales.

Pretty Things Baby Tree
**Bottle**
9.0%
Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project, Cambridge, MA

All aboard the baby tree! This is our first Pretty Things seasonal beer: A Springtime quadrupel brewed with dried plums. Batch 2 is out in stores now. Baby Tree is a Belgian-inspired beer, also inspired by springtime, lambs, Yorkshire and babies-in-trees... Baby tree is a "quadruple" brewed with a single strain of Belgian yeast. While a commonly used style name on the internet, "quadruple" isn't in fact a style name at all but a brand of beer produced by La Trappe in the Netherlands. Its found a common usage as a cover-all for the darkest and strongest beers produced by Trappist monks, mainly because they haven't named them themselves. Two Belgian brewers use the term "Abt", Flemish for "Abbot". Historically the best beer made in an abbey (by the Cistercians/Trappists at least) was referred to in Latin simply as "prima melior". This has also become a brand name in recent years.

July 31, 2014 - Sweet Georgia Brown Root Beer Cask
12:00PM-11:00PM
The last time we tried this, it was more root and less beer. We hope we learned from that iteration and are ready to do it again. Come in and have it straight up or as a float with vanilla ice cream.  If we're going to drink dark beer in the summer, we're going to make it super refreshing!

August 07, 2014 - Pineapple Pineapple XPress Cask
12:00PM-11:00PM
This one just seems obvious - Fresh pineapple in our Pineapple XPress XPA. The meridian and palisade hops give this beer a nice tropical aroma but the addition of a couple whole pineapples in the cask will make this into a perfect summer crusher. One month of summer to go, come celebrate appropriately.
