Abita Brwing "PURPLE HAZE"
Purple Haze is a crisp, American style wheat beer with raspberry puree added after filtration. Therefore, you may see raspberry pulp in the beer. The raspberries provide the lager with a subtle purple coloration and haze, a fruity aroma, and a tartly sweet taste.
For something different and completely "mind blowing" come on over to "purple Haze"!
Founders Brewing "BREAKFAST STOUT"
You've got to love coffee to truly appreciate this phenomenal brew. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and sweetened imported chocolates, Sumatra and Kona coffee. Breakfast Stout has an intense fresh roasted coffee nose topped with a cinnamon colored frothy head that seems to never fade and makes you wish breakfast could last forever.
Rate beer gave this a whopping "100" overall and Beer Advocate an "A+"
