The Hammer is Back!

Spring? Who needs it?

Rated an 'A' by The Beer Advocate, Phillips Hammer Imperial Stout is back at Spiritmerchants again for another limited run! Here's what one of the BA critics had to say about the last batch:

This is a world class RIS that ages gracefully. Dark and thick, this is pure sexy chocolate and roasted coffee malts. I have had bigger and even better impys but this has to be one of the best BC beers ever. The case for Matt Philips as one of the best BC brewers can be made from this beer alone.

Who cares if it's raining outside, when you've got something like this in the fridge?

Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale -- It's not just for Thanksgiving anymore!

For all you brokenhearted souls out there who missed the batch of Pumpkin Ales we brought in at Thanksgiving and Halloween, we've just taken a midwinter delivery of Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale! (Word has it that pumpkins grow year-round in Colorado, where this was brewed, but we haven't chased the source of that rumor down yet.)
