Full Sail Session Lager 12PK 12oz BottleS $9.99 cash cash
Session beers are a hot topic right now in the beer world. These are beers that, while still full of flavor, their ABVs are not through the roof, allowing the drinker to enjoy more than one. In February, we want to remind everyone what the original craft session beer was, Full Sail Session Lager. Clean, crisp and easy to drink, this beer is truly meant for a longer session of beer drinking.
Our beer department staff likes to recommend this beer for February. Not only is it a great beer and the original Chocolate Stout but it is so versatile. Young’s Double Chocolate Stout can be blended with several lambics (such as a framboise or kriek) to create a fruit-forward chocolate beer. Or blend it with a beer like Well’s Banana Bread for a uniquely malty, nutty, chocolaty concoction. We also recommend pairing this beer with high end chocolates and perhaps doing it on a certain romantic night in February. A great couple’s activity!

Some breweries are adding mangos, pineapples and other various citrus fruits. A few breweries are experimenting with hops that impart fruit flavors without actually adding fruit at all. New Belgium did both in their new Citradelic Tangerine IPA. Citra hops impart bright citrus notes while tangerines impart an added fruit touch. The result is a wonderfully melded citrus bomb.

Some capture the taste of pumpkin pie so closely, bartenders rim glasses with cinnamon and sugar to serve them. Get your pick of the...
