Smoked Beers of All Kinds, Now in Stock
While we here at Lime love a super-smoked Bamberg lager with a burger or a pork chop, we also know that smoked beer is so more than that. Smokiness in beer can add layers of savory complexity to ales and lagers alike, of all different styles. That can leave a powerful impression, especially when served alongside food.
With that in mind, we like to keep a smoked beer within arms reach at all times, whether to introduce new drinkers to an unusual beer world tradition, to marry perfectly with sausages, grilled meats and vegetables of all kinds, or even to act as a sweet and savory pairing with chocolatey or caramelly desserts.
Embrace the smoke now with one of the many exciting smoked beers we currently have in stock!
Now available:
Aecht Schlenkerla Helles
A delicate helles lager made by reusing the yeast used in Schlenkerla's intensely smoky rauchbiers. The yeast imparts a very gentle smokiness to this beer's malty aromatics. Balanced, drinkable, and perfect alongside grilled vegetables and shellfish. 100 on RateBeer!
Now available in 500ml bottles while supplies last.
Ducato Brett Peat Daydream
Brett Peat Daydream is a supremely weird and wonderful blended beer made up of three distinct components: a peaty barleywine, a Scotch barrel-aged rauchbier, and a very tart Brettanomyces-fermented ale. The result is a hugely complex sour beer with intense pervasive smokiness. A real sipper that can hang with the richest red meat dishes.
Now available in 330ml bottles while supplies last.
Jolly Pumpkin Gotlandsdricka
Jolly Pumpkin has created an unusually tasty sour beer in it's new Gotlandsdricka. Inspired by beers brewed in the Nordic Viking Age, Gotlandsdricka is described as "a smoky, bitter-sweet, spicy flavored
ale aged in oak for 3 weeks."
Now available in 15.5 & 5 gallon kegs while supplies last.
Mikkeller Rauch Geek Breakfast
The Beer Geek Breakfast you know and love, brewed with oats and loads of coffee, plus the addition of smoked malt, lending a rich, savory twist to this modern classic. 100 on RateBeer!
Now available in 330ml bottles.
Mikkeller San Diego Porter
Mikkeller's first brewery is now open, and if their new porter is any indication, we'll be seeing great stuff coming out of the San Diego facility. Porter is brewed with just a small amount of smoked malt, lending a subtle smoky complexity to an excellent, drinkable porter.
Now available in 15.5 gallon kegs.
To Øl No ReGratze
Very subtly smoky, No ReGratze is a tart and absolutely crushable take on the old Polish beer style known as Grodziskie (aka Grätzer). Very refreshing!
Now available in 330ml bottles.
To Øl Smoke on the Porter, Fire in the Rye
A massive imperial porter brewed with smoked chipotle peppers and peppery rye malt. Rich and satisfying, but surprisingly drinkable for its size, with a slowly building chili heat. 13.7% ABV. Rated 97 on RateBeer!
Now available in 375ml bottles.
Voss Bryggeri VossaØl Anno 1814
A malty, tart, and fruity traditional beer brewed with juniper. Spicy, softly bitter, and balanced.
Now available in 30L kegs while supplies last.
Tilted Shed January Barbecue
Beer doesn't get to have ALL the smoky fun. Tilted Shed's January Barbecue smoked cider is made by taking apples, smoking them over apple, pear, and oak wood, and using them to infuse a dry cider made with tannic cider apples grown in Sonoma County. As Tilted Shed likes to say, it's "like drinking a brut champagne near a bonfire."
Now available in 375ml bottles.

Two New Ciders from Tilted Shed
Written by Mike Reis

Two New Ciders from Tilted Shed

We'd be happy to drink Tilted Shed's Graviva!, Barred Rock, and January Barbecue all year round. They are wonderful ciders that are expressive of terroir and apple variety characteristics without being pretentious or inaccessible and they're darn satisfying to drink. They're some of our favorite ciders anywhere and we're proud to have them in our backyard.

But Ellen and Scott, the masterminds behind these tasty beverages, aren't satisfied with just that. They're constantly experimenting, blending, and tweaking to make their ciders better, and when they unleash a new release on the world, you know it's going to be interesting and well-executed. We recently received two new ones from our North Bay friends and they more than live up to the standard Tilted Shed has set for themselves.

Now available:


Inclinado 2015
Inclinado is Tilted Shed's take on the Basque-style sidras of Spain--unfiltered, unfined, unpasteurized, and fermented to full dryness solely with wild yeast. The cider showcases the bright acidity, earthy funk, and juicy, floral aromatics that make Basque ciders great, with a little Sonoma twist: Inclinado is made entirely from organic Sonoma County Gravenstein apples. Please note that this release is not carbonated, keeping with the style of the ciders that inspired it--try a long escanciar pour!
Now available in 750ml bottles.



Topwork
Topwork is yet another dry release, this time a blend designed to showcase the character of the cider-specific apple varieties used to make it. It features the structure and aromatics of Sonoma and Mendocino County-grown Nehou, Rhode Island Greening and Transcendent Crab apples alongside the zippy acidity of Gravensteins. It's tropical and well-balanced, with an underlying earthiness supporting aromatics of papaya, kiwi, and peach.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Also available from Tilted Shed:

Graviva! - Available in 375 & 750ml bottles
Barred Rock Barrel-Aged Cider - Available in 375 & 750ml bottles
January Barbecue Smoked Cider - Available in 375 & 750ml bottles

It's Back! Jolly Pumpkin's iO Saison

Dry, tart, crisp, elegant, and floral, Jolly Pumpkin's iO Saison is a beer we'd be thrilled drink any day of the year. It's a perfectly conceived and executed red saison that is quite unlike any other beer out there. And while it's a sturdy drink that develops beautifully as it ages, it's especially great fresh in the opening days of spring here in California.

Brewed with citrusy, tannic rose hips, juicy, floral hibiscus, and aromatic rose petals, it's a sour saison you won't want to miss, and this year's release has just rolled into our warehouse.

98 on RateBeer!

Now available in 750ml bottles, 1/6th barrel kegs & 1/2 barrel kegs.

Also available from Jolly Pumpkin:

Bam Biere
Bam Noire
Calabaza Blanca
Fuego del Otoño
La Parcela
Madrugada Obscura
Maracaibo Especial
Noel de Calabaza
Oro de Calabaza
 
Crooked Stave and Prairie Walk Into a Brewery...

Crooked Stave and Prairie Walk Into a Brewery...

Nope, that's not the start of a bad joke--it's the start of some seriously good beers. You see, both of these folks have recently made the trek out to Denmark to visit their friends atAmager Bryghus to collaborate on two tasty releases, which we have available now. Check 'em out:

Chad: King of the Wild Yeasts
Chad Yakobsen of Crooked Stave has rightfully earned a reputation for wild yeast wizardry, haven written about and experimented extensively with Brettanomyces and other funkifying organisms. Naturally, on his trip to Denmark, he's gone and made a Brett-forward saison with his buddies at Amager. Chad: King of the Wild Yeasts builds on a dry, earthy base with a layered hop profile provided by Simcoe, Mosaic, Amarillo and Citra hops. It's dry and tropical, punchy and satisfying.
93 on RateBeer!

Tulsa Twister
And because drinkers can just never seem to get enough hoppy Brett saisons, Amager also has Tulsa Twister out now, their collaboration with Prairie Artisan Ales. It's a single-malt, single-hop Brett saison made with Simcoe hops and gentle pilsner malt. It's a lean and drinkable beer at 7.5% ABV with a peppery yeast character running alongside a citrus peel hop bitterness.
95 on RateBeer!

Now available in 500ml bottles.
