Two Commons Classics, Now in Stock

The Commons Brewery makes great beer with a clear voice, effortlessly blending new world concepts with old-school sensibilities. They make beers that reflect their own passions and it shows--their beers are fresh and exciting, but with a classic air about them. The brewery is known for their consistently excellent saisons and farmhouse table beers, but their skills go way beyond that.

We've just received new batches of two of our favorites from this Portland brewery that exemplify their unique style and skill beyond the farmhouse ale. Check 'em out!


Now Available:

Bourbon Little Brother
Little Brother is a cool-fermented strong ale with a touch of roasty character and a lot of smooth richness. Here, it's been given the barrel-aged treatment, resting for a few months in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. The result is a dense and complex (but not over-the-top) chocolatey, malty delight.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Flemish Kiss
Flemish Kiss is back! One of our all-time favorite beers from the Commons has returned. It's a brilliant Belgian-style pale ale fermented with Brettanomyces. It's floral and dry, with a touch of fruitiness and an earthy finishing bite.
96 on RateBeer!
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Breaking Beer

Breaking Beer

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: a student and his high school teacher get together and start cooking. Breaking Bad, right?
Actually that’s the basic story of Danish brewery, To Øl. In 2005, Tobias Emil Jensen, Tore Gynther and their teacher, Mikkel Borg Bjergso (of Mikkeller fame) set out to lead a revolution in Danish beer, away from the lackluster beers they grew up with. Everything they do seems to push the envelope just a bit further (even their label art). Its been just over 10 radical years and the Lime Ventures team is loving every minute of it! Check out some of the new stuff we just got in stock!
Now Available:

Fuck Art This is Architecture
To Øl’s signature “Fuck Art” series is their take on classic Belgian beer styles. This is Architecture is a rustic example of a Belgian Pale Ale brewed with Brettanomyces. The Brett brings an earthy quality to the party while potent American hops bring the bitterness to support the pilsner malt and flaked oat backbone.
93 on RateBeer!
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Garden of Eden
To Øl absolutely crammed this beer with fruit. Brewed with apricot, guava, mango, passion fruit, and papaya! Add some fruity Mosaic hops and you’ve got yourself a fruit bomb of an IPA with intense fruit aromas.
92 on RateBeer!
Now available in 330ml bottles.

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.

Reparationsbajer (Director’s Cut)
This is a beast of an Imperial Pale Ale. Weighing in at a massive 17% ABV, this ultra-boiled pale ale has been primarily fermented with several different yeasts, but is finished with champagne yeast to get it up to that lofty ABV. Surprisingly dry, but with a hint of sweetness to keep the alcohol from being too in your face. This bad boy tastes great now but will cellar fantastically!
Now available in 330ml bottles.

All Kinds of Mikkeller Cans

Those looking to buy canned craft beer for their trips to the beach, mountain treks, backyard barbecues, or just for everyday drinking have historically not had a huge range of options. Thankfully, the tides of change seem to be upon us, with more an more brilliant canned craft beers popping up around us all the time.
Our friends at Mikkeller were ahead of the curve on this one, having continuously increased their canned offerings since they first released Keeper and Better Half nearly three years ago. We're able to get more canned Mikkeller goodness than ever before, and now that their San Diego brewery is running in full force, we can see the future and it's bright, shiny, and aluminum. We've just received a boatload of Mikkeller cans, from both their European operation and from San Diego. Check it out!
Now Available:

Mikkeller San Diego Amoeba Brett IPA
A juicy, tropical, and hugely aromatic IPA fermented with an expressive strain of Brettanomyces.
93 on RateBeer!
Now available in 12oz cans.

Mikkeller San Diego Beer Geek Breakfast
A San Diego-brewed version of Mikkeller's classic oatmeal coffee stout.
Rated 100 on RateBeer!
Now available in 12oz cans.

Mikkeller San Diego Beer Geek Brunch
Like with the Breakfast, Mikkeller is now brewing their iconic Beer Geek Brunch in San Diego, and canning it up for your convenient drinking pleasure. A massively rich imperial oatmeal coffee stout with a perfect 100/100 rating on RateBeer.
Now available in 12oz cans.

Mikkeller San Diego Brand New Normal Berliner Weisse
An eminently crushable, super refreshing Berliner weisse with just 3.2% ABV. Tart, lemony, grainy, and bright.
Now available in 12oz cans.

Mikkeller (Denmark) Eaux Claires Eaux Henry! Eaux Sally!
Brewed in collaboration with Eau Claire, Wisconsin's The Brewing Projekt, Eaux Henry! Eaux Sally! is a sessionable hop-forward pale ale made for the town's annual Eaux Claires festival.
Now available in 500ml cans.

Mikkeller (Denmark) Hallo Ich Bin Ein Berliner Passion Fruit
This is a lovely, fruit-forward, tart Berliner weisse tinged with tropical passion fruit juiciness. Gentle but super-flavorful and satisfying.
Now available in 500ml cans.

Mikkeller (Denmark) Hallo Ich Bin Ein Berliner Raspberry
Just like the passion fruit version above, this is a delightful Berliner weisse infused with fresh fruit flavor. This time around, we've got tart raspberry character to complement a tangy, grainy base beer.
Now available in 500ml cans.

Mikkeller (Denmark) SpontanDryHop Citra
Mikkeller's Spontan series has produced some of our all-time favorite beers, and their SpontanDryHop sub-series bears the name well. These dry-hopped sour ales are packed with citrusy, tropical, and floral flavors that really pop atop a tart, bright base. The Citra version is brilliant--perfectly balanced and loaded with all the complex aromatics of the namesake hop.
Now available in 330ml cans.

Just in from Spain: the Beers of Sublime Imports

Sublime Imports brings us some of our favorite under-the-radar beers and ciders from Spain and Israel. Across the board the drinks are interesting, unlike other beverages available elsewhere, and eminently fit for the dinner table, with elegant packaging and food-friendly compositions. We've just received a load of some of our Spanish favorites that are now available. Check it out!

Now Available:


Mateo & Bernabe 11 Bernabe
Deep gold in color, rich, and delicately fruity, 11 Bernabé makes the perfect aperitif--citrusy, malty, and beautifully balanced. Try it alongside fresh cheeses like feta, chevre, or burrata.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Also available from Mateo & Bernabe:
21 Mateo - a Bavarian wheat beer
25 Santiago - a spiced Belgian strong ale
7 Fermin - a modern red ale



Premium Beers of Spain Er Boquerón
Er Boquerón is a lovely, drinkable golden ale brewed with purified Mediterranean sea water, lending a satisfying salty edge to the beer, to which some have ascribed magical, hangover preventing powers. Supernaturally powerful or not, it sure is delicious!
Now available in 330ml bottles.

Also available from Premium Beers of Spain:
La Socarrada Golden Ale - an herbal golden "gastro ale"



El Gobernador Sidra Natural
Fermented entirely from Asturias' native yeast populations, El Gobernador is a bone dry, deeply funky cider with neverending complexity. Briny, earthy, and fresh, with miles of acidity to help it stand up to any food you throw at it. Delightful stuff!
Now available in 700ml bottles.


Also available from Sublime Imports:
Malka Pale Ale
Not an English pale ale, and definitely not an American pale ale, we can safely say that this is the first Israeli-style pale ale we've tasted. It's got lightly toasted wheat bread malt character and a candied orange peel hop flavor backed up by a touch of pear-like yeastiness. Unusual and delicious!
Now available in 330ml bottles.

Also available from Malka:
Blonde Ale
Dry Stout
 
World Class Lagers from Across the Globe

World Class Lagers from Across the Globe

We've written fairly extensively about how much we love lager. Most of the time, we're not talking about flashy beers, but there's something about a well-crafted lager that can satisfy in a way that nothing else can. Indeed, a clean, balanced lager is a beautiful thing, and we've recently been able to stock up on some truly special examples to share with you from around the world. We've got Czech and German stuff, both traditional and not, but we've also got Italian, American, and Swiss stuff on the price list right now as well. Check it out!

Now Available:

Koutska 10°
A glorious pale lager built for drinking in quantity. 4% ABV, incredibly flavorful, balanced, and oh-so-crushable with a soft, round texture and a firm snap of finishing bitterness.
The #7 highest rated Czech Pilsner on RateBeer with a 100 score.
Now available in 20L PETainer kegs.

Brewfist La Bassa
Brewfist's La Bassa is everything we want out of a pale, hoppy lager. It's lean but not thin, bitter but balanced, and satisfying from first sip to last thanks to beautifully-expressed aromatics from bready barley malt and floral Tradition hops. It's a perfect lager at a price that's as palatable as the beer itself.
Now available in 330ml bottles.

Two Tales Bohemian Grapefruit Lager
For a juicier take on the pale lager style, Two Tales has you covered. their Bohemian Grapefruit Lager is, as you might expect, infused with grapefruit for a fruity, zesty, and bright riff on a classic beer style. It's briskly bitter, super-refreshing, and eminently drinkable at just 3.5% ABV.
Now available in 330ml bottles.

Heater Allen Dunkel
Dunkel is one of our favorite styles of beer, in all it's rich, bready, satisfying glory, but it is woefully difficult to find great American-made examples. Heater Allen to the rescue! Their dunkel is great by any standard (in fact, it's the 6th highest rated example of the style on RateBeer) and it's available to you now, fresh from Oregon. It's layered and complex but clean, with impeccable balance.
Rated 100 on RateBeer!
Now available in 22oz bottles.
