Southern Tier Brewing Live Pale Ale - $18.35
From the beloved Southern Tier Brewing Company in New York comes an exceptional bottle-conditioned pale ale. Deep yellow in colour, with a touch of haze for mystery, this beer is all about citrus on the nose. A hop-forward profile featuring the likes of orange, grapefruit and lemon all work together to rocket you into absolute bliss, while a crisp finish and lighter body make this brew easily quaffable and one worth revisiting again and again.

Jolly Pumpkin La Roja - $15.05
This American Wild Ale is brought to you by the state of Michigan and the creative minds of Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales. This barrel-aged beauty is brewed in the Flanders tradition and pours a murky amber in colour with all sorts of things going on in the aroma including subtle oak, spice, floral and of course sour notes. In addition to notes of red grape, these sour characteristics carry through on the palate to expertly mask the robust 7.2% ABV. If you’re feeling adventurous, or just love sour beers, this should be at the top of your bucket list.
