Flytrap Brewing

Apricot Saison with Champagne Yeast: 6.9% A NYE release at Flytrap, this saison was bottle-conditioned with champagne yeast and is only available in bottles in the taproom.

Front Street Brewery

Be More Pacific: 9.5% From former Assistant Brewer Christian, “Please be more Pacific about your IPA. We’re talking West Coast classic: clean, crisp, and crushable, with a bright, piney wave of Simcoe and Amarillo hops crashing on your palate like a resin-soaked tide of tangerine, pineapple, and grapefruit. All in surprising balance that just begs for more. Our tribute to Pliny.”

Waterline Brewing Company

Peppercorn Oyster Stout: 6% From Head Brewer Dani, “Made with four kinds of peppercorns and a healthy portion of fresh oysters out of stump sound. Dry and spiced without being spicy, with a silky soft body that balances the peppercorns and roasted malts.”

Makai Brewing Brewing Company

P.O.G. Saison: 6.8% From the brewery, “Our take on the traditional Hawaiian POG drink. This belgian-style saison includes a generous amount of tropical flavors including pineapple, orange and guava.”

Waterman’s Brewing

Sandglass Sour Series–Dark Chocolate Cherry: 5% From brewer Alexis, “This addition to the Sandglass Sour Series has malty, yet tart characteristics with a lighter body. Packed with dark chocolate and cherry purée, this liquid treat is like biting into a chocolate covered cherry—delicious but not too filling.”

Wrightsville Beach Brewery

Scatter-Grained: 6% A gluten-free honey amber ale made with 4 different types of malted millet seeds, hopped with centennial and loaded with fresh local wildflower honey.
