The Festival Beer Cooler
Beer is bliss. There isn’t a season for beer, better yet they make beer for the seasons. With the types, styles and varieties there is a beer for everyone. That is no surprise given that beer is the oldest man-made beverage. Today there are around 400 different types of beer.
Even with its ancient history it is still a very American beverage. Our founding fathers were beer brewers – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and James Madison. Therefore, it is our right, nay, our duty, to at least try as many as we can!
Below is a list of craft beer we have and featured seasonal beers. Now don’t despair if you want to stick with your old faithful. We carry every major brand at the best prices in Annapolis, Maryland. Stop in and see our selection today.
Beer, it’s the best damn drink in the world.

Southern Tier Pumking | 8.6% ABV
Brewed in the spirit of All Hallows Eve, a time of the year when spirits can make contact with the physical world and when magic is most potent.

As the season cools, this is the perfect beer to warm up with. Dogfish Head Punkin Ale is a full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar. The beer is brewed with pumpkin meat, brown sugar, and spices. When you find it, grab some extra because it’s usually gone by Thanksgiving.
Sierra Nevada Celebration
Celebration IPA | 6.8% ABV
The start of Celebration season is a festive event. We can’t start brewing until the first fresh hops have arrived, but once they have the season is officially underway! First brewed in 1981, Celebration Ale is one of the earliest examples of an American-style IPA and one of the few hop-forward holiday beers. Famous for its intense citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops—honoring everything we have at Sierra Nevada.
New Belgium Accumulation
White IPA | 6.2% ABV
This winter, IBUs start accumulating like snow in Colorado with our new Accumulation White IPA. Brewing a white IPA was not only a way to salute the white beauty falling from the sky, but a direct revolt to the longstanding tradition of brewing dark beers for winter and winter seasonal beers. At least that’s what our rebellious brewers like to claim as they shovel in plenty of mosaic and Amarillo hop varietals and a bit of wheat for a smooth mouthfeel. Stack up a few cases of Accumulation White IPA to keep your long nights glowing blizzard white.
Tröegs Independent Brewing
Mad Elf | 11% ABV
The holidays at Tröegs start with our inner Mad Elf momentarily taking over the brew deck. So blame “him” for this cheerful ruby red creation reminiscent of ripened cherries, raw honey, and cocoa with notes of cinnamon, clove, and allspice.
Holiday Cheer | 5.4% ABV
Holiday traditions come in all shapes and sizes. Ours come in freshly wrapped bottles and cans. This old-world Dunkelweizen is brewed with Texas peaches and roasted pecans – perfect for cracking open in front of a crackling fire.
