xocovezaStone Brewing Company: Xocoveza 8.1%

Ring in the New Year with this deliciously insane beer. Stone brewed this beer with Chris Banker winner of a home brew competition in 2014. This is his take on Mexican hot chocolate. The brew is crafted with cocoa, coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. It definitely warms you from the inside out!

cigar-cityCigar City Brewing: Jai Alai 7.5%

We Tennesseans finally have the pleasure of welcoming Cigar City Brewing to the Volunteer State! This is the only thing from Florida we like (I kid!) Jai Alai, a game native to the Basque region of Spain, is played on a court called a fronton. Jai Alai players attempt to catch a ball using a curved mitt whilst the ball travels at speeds up to 188mph! The only thing that remains of the sport is Cigar City’s homage to the sport with their Jai Alai Indian Pale Ale. This beer is well rounded with notes of citrus bitterness and tropical fruit hop notes in the finish.

oskar-bluesOskar Blues Brewery: Death By Coconut 6.5%

So if you love coconut this beer is for you! The intense cacao flavors blend with coconut aromas and flavors. The semi-sweet porter is made with loads of chocolate and extra dark caramel malts. This is a seasonal beer! So better try it while you can.

dogfish-headDogfish Head Craft Brewery: 90 Minute IPA 9.0%

Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA gets a 94 on Beer Advocate. Esquire Magazine calls the 90 Minute IPA “perhaps the best IPA in America.” Well with endorsements like that, I surely can’t be wrong in recommended this beer! This imperial IPA is surprisingly well rounded with a pungent hop flavor, but doesn’t kill your taste buds.

foundersFounders Brewing Company: Breakfast Stout 8.3%

An oldie, but goodie! Breakfast Stout is on my top ten-beer list of all time. I can’t resist the malty oatmeal and coffee flavors this brew emits, hence breakfast in a bottle! The beer is brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and Sumatra and Kona coffee.
