Craft beer drinkers, we have new stuff for you
I am pleased to say that we received three new craft beers today and will receive a fourth on Friday. The first is the Irish Red Ale from Moylan's Brewery in California. I am very excited about this one because unfortunately real (ie from Ireland) Irish Red Ales are very difficult to find in the U.S. Moylan's specializes in Irish and English style ales. Remember this beer for your next Saint Patrick's Day celebrations. It's more drinkable than the dark Guinness and much more tasty than the more common Smithwicks (and just to clear up the confusion, unless you have an Irish accent that beer is pronounced Smith-Icks).
Next comes two beers that are not new but new to Virginia. We have the Mad River Double IPA and Scotch Porter available in 6 packs or by the bottle. Mad River is also based out of California. The Double IPA is for you hop-heads and the Scotch Porter for those who like dark beer.
Finally, we've been carrying Victory beers for quite a while. They have just released their Baltic Thunder, which is a Baltic Porter. Something brand new for you to try, or if you like dark beers. Comes in 22oz bottles. This one is particularly exciting because it's been a while since Victory has released something new. Available from Friday the 18th.
