JOE’KIN — $10
Otto’s presents a lightly-spiced chamomile squash lager, perfect for that nighttime nap…just Joe’kin 😉 This spiced, sour “pumpedkin” ale packs a “cup of joe” caffeine punch that will surely keep you jonesing for more. 33 pounds per barrel of real roasted pumpkin, caramelized brown sugar, Madagascar vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, lactose, and 3 types of coffee come together for in this unique sour wheat ale. Have one and let your inner AMPED jester out. Happy Halloween! (Original Plato: 17.8; ABV 7.8%)
“4218” — $10
An old adage states that an apricot tree will not grow far from the mother tree. This Cork & Cage release has its roots in our other apricot ales. Celis yeast, Belgian candi syrup and over 33 pounds per barrel of PLU 4218 produces an offspring worthy of your attention. Strong, with spice and apricot notes, but with a subtle sweetness that leaves you wanting more. Have one today…you’ll be happy you did! (7.6% ABV)
PA TRIPLE — $10
Bottle-conditioned ale brewed with Pennsylvania apples, malt, and honey. *Also available on draft or growlers.* (7% ABV)
PLATO — $10
Plato is inspired by a recipe found in a 3,700 year old Mediterranean wine cellar. Mint, juniper berries, cinnamon bark, concord grapes, and myrtle berries imported from Greece were fused with a stout base, which was fermented with a British stout yeast and dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin. The resulting stout has strong aromatics, is spicy on the palate, and finishes dry with a hint of grape. 750 ml (5.5% ABV)
GENEVER — $10
What do you get when you blend a saison with hops and gin aromatics? Genever, of course! Juniper, coriander, licorice root, cardamom, orange peel, and orris root were infused into hoppy wort and fermented with saison yeast. This wonderfully complex ale has earthy, peppery and spicy notes along with a hint of sweetness from the addition of Belgian Candi syrup. Have one and you’ll be a “Believer in Genever!” (10.4% ABV)
