A play on a traditional India Pale Ale, the mash for Leghorn includes three different types of rye. The rye imparts a spicy malt profile that balances the five separate hop additions. Bittered with Columbus hops and dry-hopped with Liberty, the deep hop flavor and delicate, floral bouquet creates a complex, yet refreshing brew.

2. Velvet Hustle, Mayday Brewery

Most pale ales out there in the world would never attempt to swindle you out of your recent pay check, or even your precious jade cat statue your great aunt Lucille left you in her will, but Velvet Hustle isn’t your everyday pale ale. Using a subtle combination of Victory and Honey malts for a smooth greeting followed by a sly, sharp stab to the palate of robust American hops, Velvet Hustle will easily work its way into your home and then steal your heart. And your watch.

Jubilee Beer’s newest beer, Randy’s IPA, is a well-balanced IPA that delivers plenty of hop character with a smooth finish. They use EKG, Cascade and Zythos hops to deliver a bold flavor. Pale, Caramel, Biscuit and Munich provide balance with the hops and the 12% wheat gives the beer a full mouthfeel with a smooth finish.

A Helles bock style brewed with lager yeast, using a mixture of traditional german malts – Pilsner, Munich and Cara Helles – hopped using German Perle, Hallertau and Hersbucker hops. Flavor: A nice deep tan color with a slight bready sweet aroma, with a light mouth feel that finishes with a smooth maltiness and clean hop flavor.

5. Country Roots, Tennessee Brew Works

Generous amounts of baked sweet potatoes (provided by Tennessee’s very own Delvin Farms and roasted by Flavor Catering) are mashed with the grains to create a complex, silky smooth stout with a prominent presence of coffee and bitter dark chocolate. This stout is great on its own, but complements many dessert items. Look for the roastiness of the sweet potatoes on the finish.

6. Boscos Famous Flaming Stone Beer, Boscos Restaurant & Brewing Co.

North America’s “Original Steinbier.” Brewed using a traditional German technique, stones heated in their wood fired ovens are lowered into the beer during the brewing process, giving the beer its unique caramel character. Awarded “Three Stars” by Michael Jackson, the world’s leading beer writer. Great with salads and lightly flavored dishes.
