Red Wheelbarrow, a Red Ale (7% ABV) from Maine Beer Company in Freeport, Maine.
"Like many of our beers, Red Wheelbarrow (which started out as a pilot batch brewed by Brewer Dan Roberts) doesn’t fit neatly into a style category — think of it as a stronger, more hop-forward interpretation of a traditional red ale. Red Wheelbarrow is not, however, a “red IPA” — there is robust malt character (think raisin and fig) on both the nose and palate that temper the abundant hop presence (think citrus fruit)." - Maine Beer Co.
On Tap: Puff, a double IPA (9.8% ABV) from Sixpoint Brewery in Brooklyn, New York.
"Imagine puffing away on hops for days, then just chillin' as the party starts winding down. But wait, a final burst of energy; one last dose in a tank of dry hops. A special hop bouquet for the afterparty. If you love Resin, try tasting it straight from the tanks. That's PUFF - a hazy, unfiltered pour with an extra dose of dry hops... a new blend devised just for Puff." - Sixpoint
Tapped Last Night: Hop Shovel IPA (7.5% ABV) from Bear Republic Brewing in Healdsburg, California.
"This pale and hoppy IPA was brewed with a high proportion of wheat and rye for a smooth, well rounded flavor and mouth feel. New hop varieties Mosaic and Meridian provide a uniquely American and modern hop flavor and aroma." - Bear Republic
Order a Naked Dove draft today (and every Wednesday in June) and get a FREE Naked Dove pint glass to take home with you.
Naked Dove is our June Brewery of the Month. On tap now we have their Helles Lager (5.5% ABV).
"Helles, meaning light (in color), is a German Style Lager that is a staple of the Munich Beer Culture. Naked Dove's Helles has a wonderful straw golden color with a dense, rich head that clings to the glass for the whole beer. The aroma and flavor is a combination of light malt complexity and crisp flavor that satisfies without overpowering. It may remind you of a fresh baguette, hot from the oven. The finish is crisp clean and leaves the drinker longing for more. Brewed with Pils Malt and Magnum and Liberty Hops." - Naked Dove
On Tap: Fat Tire Amber Ale (5.2% ABV) from New Belgium Brewing based in Fort Collins, Colorado.
"Named in honor of our co-founder's bike trip through Europe, Fat Tire Amber Ale marks a turning point in the young electrical engineer's home brewing. Belgian beers use a far broader palette of ingredients (fruits, spices, esoteric yeast strains) than German or English styles. Together with co-founder Kim Jordan, they traveled around sampling their homebrews to the public. Fat Tire won fans with its sense of balance: toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors coasting in equilibrium with hoppy freshness. Fat Tire: Pairs well with people." - New Belgium
