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!
Now available in 750ml bottles & 1/6bbl kegs.

Von Pampelmuse
A delightfully tart citrus bomb of a Berliner weisse, brewed with grapefruit and mandarins. Juicy, bright, and refreshing.
Now available in 750ml bottles & 1/6bbl kegs.

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.

Also available from Perennial:

Saison de Lis - An elegant saison brewed with chamomile
Blonde - Belgian blonde ale perfection in 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!

Now Available:

1234 Broad Street
A malty but dry biere de garde with the Libertine's signature tart 'n' funky fermentation character. Gently fruity and deeply complex.
Now available in 750ml bottles & 1/6bbl kegs.

Aubree Rye Saison
A tropical and zesty saison with an underlying rye spiciness. Earthy, fruity, and layered.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

That's right! A coffee Berliner weisse. Sour but drinkable, with the roasty influence of coffee throughout. Citrusy and bright, but with an unusual toasty edge.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Edna Table Saison
A zesty, heavily-dry hopped sour saison at just 4% ABV. Absolutely loaded with delicate floral aromatics and melon and citrus-like fruitiness. Major refreshment!
Now available in 750ml bottles & 1/6bbl kegs.

Exile on Broad Street
Exile on Broad Street is a big, in-your-face brandy barrel-aged sour biere de garde made with fresh peaches. It's absolutely delicious, loaded with fresh peach flavor atop a bready, caramelly malt base. 9.5% ABV--tread lightly!
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Saison Fonce
A dark, roasty saison aged in oak barrels. Malty and gently sour with berrylike and chocolatey aromatics.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Get Weird with Fantome

Get Weird with Fantome

Over the course of the last decade, we've seen the world's best breweries imitated over and over again by a wave of newcomers wanting to capture the magic of the industry's legends. Some of the new wave have even succeeded! We've enjoyed watching the evolution of modern pale ales, saisons, and sour ales quite a bit, in fact! But one brilliant brewery has remained untouched by imitators: Belgium's Brasserie Fantome.

We'd attribute this to an essential, inimitable weirdness that is at the heart of every bottle of Fantome's rustic, funky beers. Only one brewery can make this stuff, and we're just fine with that. These beers are as delightful as they are unclassifiable, and while they might not all conform to BJCP style guidelines, they are always worth a space in your glass. We've just reloaded on these iconic Belgian beers, which are available for your confounded enjoyment now. Cheers!

Available now in 750ml bottles:

Artist No. 2

At 10% ABV, you'd expect Artist No. 2 to be a total palate-crusher. Instead, it's smooth and well-constructed, with a gentle sourness in perfect balance with a touch of roasty malt flavor.


Brise-BonBons is an intentionally brash beer--perhaps the most bitter beer Fantome makes. But it's also one of its most loved. With a RateBeer score of 96, this grassy, lemony, and herbaceous strong ale is a real enjoyable brise-bonbons!


Fantome is a pretty weird brewery, alright, and this is one of their weirdest beers. It's also one of our favorites. Chocolat is brewed with cocoa powder and chili peppers, but don't expect a big, burly stout. This is a pale-ish saison that manages to be subtle and elegant, with the added ingredients working in harmony with the yeast to create a tart, complex, and cohesive sipper.

Coffee Ruby

There's a promise on the Coffee Ruby label: "very bitter taste." Indeed, this is a bitter beer, but it is so much more than that. It's brewed with coffee and fermented with Fantome's beguiling yeast, yielding an impossibly complex deep golden beer with citrus, herb, and toffee flavors worth savoring.

Dark White

Dark White is a spicy, pale amber beer with just under 5% alcohol. Despite it's lack of alcoholic strength, this beer packs a huge amount of flavor. It's brewed with black pepper, but expresses a whole range of flavors from earthy and bitter to fruity and bright. Delightful!

97 on RateBeer!


This beer is made by first infusing the brewing water with dried dandelion flowers, which, in French, are called "pissenlit" (don't ask for the direct translation on that one). You'll taste a layer of intriguing floral elements, but this is otherwise a bright, spritzy, strong saison with a notable hop bitterness.

97 on RateBeer!
