It's Pumpkin Beer Season!

Smell that, folks? That's the smell of slowly rotting leaves, overly-spiced lattes, and the stale-beer-on-concrete aroma of last weekend's Oktoberfest parties. That's right, it's officially fall, and it's time to stock up on pumpkin beer. We've got several great options in stock, for the lover of the classic malt-and-spice-driven examples you're likely thinking of, and for those that are looking for something new.

We've got something here for everyone, so why not crack open a bottle or pour yourself a glass of one of these fine pumpkin beers and fill your nostrils with one of our favorite autumn scents?

Now Available:

Jolly Pumpkin Los Vivos y Los Muertos
Brewed exclusively for us lucky Californians, Los Vivos y Los Muertos is a 4.2% ABV sour ale brewed with pumpkin and lime. Get it?! It's a drinkable celebration of our partnership with America's first all-sour brewery, arriving just in time for Dia de Los Muertos. It's an ultra-refreshing beer, of course, perfect for those random hotter-than-summer West Coast fall days that we all know will rear their heads soon enough. Bright acidity, zesty aromatics, and so delicious.
Now available in 1/6 bbl kegs.

Jolly Pumpkin La Parcela
Also available from Jolly Pumpkin, La Parcela is a similarly delightful break from the caramelly spiced amber beers so associated with that big orange squash. It's dry and sour, noticeably focused on earthy and tart yeast character amidst bright citrus, cocoa, and (a touch of) spiced flavor.
99 on RateBeer!
Now available in 750ml bottles & 1/6 bbl kegs.

Renaissance Great Punkin
Medium bodied and gently sweet, this beer focuses on caramelized malts, roasted pumpkin flavor, and just the right amount of warming spices. It's toasty and drinkable stuff with upwards of 7% ABV to keep you warm as the temperature drops.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Happy Birthday, Prairie!

From the moment Prairie Artisan Ales sent their first beers to us here in California, we knew we were in for a long, tasty relationship. As time has gone by, our appreciation for their mastery of all things highly-hopped, rustically-fermented, and elegantly-soured has only deepened.

In celebration of their fourth birthday, Prairie has released a beer that clearly illustrates what they do best. 4th Anniversary is a lovely sour ale tinged with the floral, earthy, and spicy flavors of fresh ginger root. It is balanced and drinkable, with the ginger's delicate aromatics married perfectly to a bready maltiness and the funky flavors from a mixed-culture fermentation.

It's a fittingly delicious way to celebrate a brewery that has brought us a whole lot of deliciousness over the past four years. Cheers to you, Prairie!

Also recently received:

Prairie Ace is a hop-driven saison marked with the citrusy, lemongrass-like aromatics of its namesake hop: Sorachi Ace. It's spicy, grassy, and enticingly bitter--crushable to the max.
Now available in 500ml bottle and 1/6th and 1/2 barrel kegs.

Weisse is Prairie's take on the ever-popular Berliner weisse style (Oklahoma weisse?). It is every bit as bright, lemony, and refreshing as you would hope it would be, with grainy, fruity aromatics along with a satisfyingly tart finish.
Now available in 12oz bottles.

Three Limited Beers from Perennial

Perennial's year-round beers are some of our most reliable favorites. Saison de Lis, Hommelbier, and Blonde are always welcome in our glasses and they find their way there often. But whenever a new shipment from St. Louis rolls through our doors, we can't help but rip off the pallet wrap in excitement, jonesin' to get our hands on whatever new bottles have found their way to our warehouse. The rotating cast of this brewery's beery characters is always worth appreciating--the beers are consistently delicious, with inventive recipes and flawless execution.

Thankfully, we've had a lot to appreciate lately, with three new Perennial beers gracing us with their presence. Check 'em out, and get excited along with us!

Now Available:

Glitter & Gold
Glitter & Gold is a dry, aromatic biere de miel brewed with Missouri honey, spelt, and oats. It's floral, earthy, and estery, with a complex aroma and a satisfying balance. An amazingly versatile food beer that is great on its own!

Von Pampelmuse
A delightfully tart citrus bomb of a Berliner weisse, brewed with grapefruit and mandarins. Juicy, bright, and refreshing.

Brewed in collaboration with Portland's Commons Brewery, Meriwether is a classic saison, perfectly balancing doughy maltiness, floral hoppiness, and peppery yeast character. It's fermented with a 50/50 blend of each brewery's house saison yeast, making it a collaboration between not just brewers, but microorganisms as well!
Now available in 750ml bottles & 1/6bbl kegs.

A Taste of California's Central Coast

We have a pretty broad range of breweries represented in our portfolio here at Lime, but none of them are quite like the Libertine Brewing Company. This is a brewery approaching beer from a truly unusual way, producing truly unusual beers that are truly unusually delicious. Each of these beers is aged in oak barrels after spending time in both an open coolship and in large oak puncheons. Each is expressive of the zymagical capabilities of the native yeast and bacteria populations of the brewery's home on California's Central Coast. Each is tart, complex, and satisfying. Some have their roots in very old traditions, while others are completely modern creations, but each offers a delightful taste of this region's unique terroir. We've just reloaded our supply of the brewery's year-round staples and several newer beers, featured below. Check 'em out!
