Great Weekend Beer Specials!
Here you will find some extra detail about a couple of beers that are featured on our E-Mail Beer List. These beers can be found by our "warm bomber" shelf in the south east corner of Argonaut Wine and Liquor. Read on for more information:
Stone Arrogant Bastard- Stone is definitely high on the list for setting standards in American brewing. If you haven’t had it yet, Arrogant Bastard is a very hoppy American Strong Ale. It pours a dark copper color with about a two finger off white head. The nose is full of piney slightly citrusy hops, caramel malts and a bit of alcohol underlying. The palate follows suit pretty identically. It is a bit more balanced than the nose would lead you to believe though. It is medium in body and carbonation with a resinous mouth feel of a DIPA. Are you worthy?
Was- $4.99 Email- $4.49 22oz
Trappistes Rochefort 8- Brasserie de Rochefort is one of seven authentic Trappist breweries in the world. All of the beers they produce are definitely exceptional! The 8 is their Belgian Dubbel offering. It pours a ruby brown color with a large foamy tan head. Aromas of toffee, brown sugar, hints of banana and clove as well as bready yeast all fill the nose married nicely. On the palate the bready yeast comes through more prevalent but still does not over power the other flavors aforementioned. You also get a bit of plum and raisin in there. The body is medium heavy with medium carbonation and a smooth mouth feel. 9.2% abv 22 IBUs

Great new beers for the weekend
As part of our ongoing effort to make available to you the finest craft beers from all over the world, we would like to detail a couple of new brews that came in this month. Drumroll please...
Goose Island Pere Jacques- This is a Belgian style dubbel from Chicago’s Goose Island brewery. The pour on this is a murky mahogany color with a small but dense beige head that lingers. Dark fruit and bready malt aromas dominate the nose with hints of caramel and Belgian yeast as well. Dark fruits and caramel are present on the palate alongside buttered sweet bread and the yeast gives it a slightly sour finish. Medium light carbonation and a little light bodied for the style but it makes it go down easy. 8% abv 26 IBUs
Was- $7.99 Email- $6.99 22oz
Funkwerks Tropic King Saison- Funkwerks is definitely a brewery on the rise in the sea of local breweries that we are fortunate to have here in Colorado, and this beer is a great representation of why! This one pours a nice cloudy golden orange color with a large white head. A rush of citrusy fruit and spice aromas hit you with a bit of sweet malt and sour funk as well. On the palate you get moderate levels of lemon, passion fruit and peach alongside touches of pepper, ginger and a slight sourness. The body is medium while the carbonation is medium heavy. This is a very nice refreshing brew! 7.5% abv
Was- $9.99 Email- $8.99 750ml

New Email Beer Specials
It's that time of the week again when Dan Chacon releases his soon to be famous email beer list. Here are some of the beers that Dan is very excited about this week:
Russian River Supplication- If you like sours, but have yet to try supplication, then wait no longer. It pours a cloudy mahogany color with a small bubbly white head. Tart cherries, sour citrus, earthy funk and oak all come through on the nose. The palate follows the nose exactly. It is definitely very sour but balanced enough so that it is not over the top. The body is medium light while the carbonation is medium heavy as you would expect. Russian River has the sour category nailed for sure! 7%abv
Was- $13.49 Email- $12.49 375ml
The Bruery Saison Rue- This is a good saison to start with and then with the addition of rye and Brettanomices you’ve got a great saison! This one pours a golden honey color with a large white head that has good retention and lacing. On the nose aromas of banana, peppercorn, clove, dark bready yeast and hints of pineapple come through. You get flavors of tangy orange and pineapple, followed by banana, pepper and clove before finishing with spicy rye, grassy grain and a slightly sour funk. The body is medium while the carbonation is medium heavy. This is a very easy drinking beer at the unusual 8.5% for a saison. 8.5% abv 30 IBUs
Was- $12.99 Email- $11.99 750ml

Email Beer Specials
Greetings to you, our thirsty friends:
If you have already signed up for our email beer list you will find information about these tasty brews in your inbox on Thursday. Here is a sneak peak:
Jolly Pumpkin Calabaza Blanca- Welcome again to the world of open fermentation and barrel aging. This offering from Jolly Pumpkin is a white beer, but it is unique for the style. It pours a hazy yet bright straw yellow color with a foamy two finger white head. Aromas of wheat, light malt and tart lemon come through with a musty funk in the background. The lemon comes through on the front of the palate with flavors of orange and coriander followed by the wheat, some spiciness and a tart, musty funk. It is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Sessionable and refreshing yet full of depth! 4.8% abv
Was- $11.49 Email- $10.49 750ml
St. Feuillien Tripel- This is a somewhat hidden gem in the world of Belgian Tripels. It pours a slightly hazy golden color with a decent sized white head that laces the glass nicely. Bready malts dominate the nose on this one with citrus fruit and white pepper in there as well. The palate is a bit less sweet than some Tripels. The tangy citrus fruit, tropical fruit and bready malts balance each other nicely with a slightly hoppy background and the white pepper coming through on the finish. It has a creamy mouth feel with a medium body and medium high carbonation. Give this one a try and you won’t be disappointed. 8.5% abv
