Newport Storm '11 - The first ever RHODE ISLAND COLLABORATION. A brainchild of Newport Storm, Trinity, Union Station, Coddington, and Mohegan Cafe: this brew has only RI local brewers and many local ingredients to boast. Hops from RI, honey from RI, yeast from RI, aged in Rum barrels from RI, 100% RI water. This is as local as you can get--and get it while you can! A true RI RED! 11%abv
Newport Storm '10 (EXCLUSIVE - ON TAP) - Deception was the name of the game on this holiday brew. As dark a beer we could make, without overpowering roasted and chocolate flavors dominating. Intense Fuggle and Golding infused dry hop aromas are abound. 10% ABV
Cyclone Series Ryan -A rye based pale ale (22%) named after CEB's President, Brent Ryan. Spicy background rye flavors are well balanced and married to Saaz in the boil and dry-hopped with amarillo to "pale ale it up!". 8.3% abv
Cyclone Series Quinn - A constantly changing brew in the bottle. This was Newport Storm's first barrel aged wonder to be bottled. Aged in RI's only produced rum (THOMAS TEW SINGLE BARREL RUM) casks for 2 months gave this brew big vanilla flavors up front. Now the brew boasts the expected: "bring on the funky sour!". 7.5% abv

SHELTON BROTHERS IMPORTERS
Cantillon Gueuze -- Brussels, Belgium -- 5.0% ABV -- Tart and somewhat acidic, Cantillon Gueuze is the real champagne of beers – a perfect blend of one, two, and three year-old lambics. It is fermented only with wild airborne yeasts from the Senne Valley in Brussels and is aged in oak casks. A classic.
Anchorage Brewing Co. Love Buzz Saison -- Anchorage, Alaska -- 8.0% ABV -- An American take on Saison, Love Buzz is brewed with rose hips, peppercorns, and orange peels, then aged in French pinot noir barrels with Brettanomyces.
Ca l'Arenys Guineu Riner -- Barcelona, Spain -- 2.5% ABV -- A real feat. Amazingly hoppy, this pale ale that packs more character and flavor into a low-alcohol beer than seems possible.
De la Senne/Allagash Very Spéciale Belge -- Brussels, Belgium -- 5.2% ABV -- While visiting Brussels earlier this year, the guys from Allagash stopped in to make a beer with Brussels' resident genius brewers at De la Senne. This beer is a throwback to the hoppy amber ales known as "Spéciales Belges" that were prolific before boozy, sweet beer became the norm in Belgium.
Au Baron Cuvée des Jonquilles -- Gussignies, France -- 7.0% ABV -- One of the best Bières de Garde around -- probably one of the best beers of France, period. This blonde is brewed by a father-and-son team a couple of kilometers away from the Belgian border. Hoppier than any other example we've found.
Haandbryggeriet Haandbic -- Drammen, Norway -- 7.0% ABV – A Norwegian homage to lambic, brewed with all sorts of wild yeast and bacteria, then fermented with Lingonberries and red currants in oak barrels for 18 months.
Trois Dames La Semeuse -- Saint-Croix, Switzerland -- 7.5% ABV – A full-bodied stout brewed with Espresso in the Swiss lake district.
Mikkeller Nelson Sauvignon -- Copenhagen, Denmark -- 9.0% ABV – The product of some brainstorming between Mikkel Borg Bjergsø and Shaun Hill, of Hill farmstead brewery. Extremely dry and slightly tannic, brewed with 100% Nelson Sauvin hops, then aged with Brettanomyces in French Cabernet Sauvignon barrels.
Epic/Dogfish Head Portamarillo -- Auckland, New Zealand -- 7.0% ABV -- A collaboration between Epic Brewing and Dogfish Head, and the world's first tree tomato beer. A sorta-Porter fermented with New Zealand-grown Tamarillos, which were smoked using wood chips from the sacred Pohutukawa tree.
Mahr's Unfiltered Pilsner (on gravity!) -- Bamberg, Germany -- 4.9% ABV -- A classic Franconian pils, brewed the old way with lots of hops and without pasteurization or filtering. Served from a traditional Bayerischer Anstich keg, directly from the bar top, as you would see in any number of tiny farmhouse brewpubs around the region.
