5 Obscure Beers From Half Time In Mamaroneck

Little-known offerings at the world’s largest beer store.

This is an imperial stout, meaning “high octane with a big kick,” according to Green. Like Grimm, Evil Twin is known for guest brewing at established breweries, but this one is brewed at Evil Twin’s home base in Demark, and it’s done so with an infusion of coffee beans that lends it an espresso flavor. At 12 percent alcohol-by-volume, it’s not for the faint of heart.

4. Founders Brewing Company’s Bolt Cutter 2012

If “Bolt Cutter” sounds extreme to you, it is. This Michigan-brewed barley wine from Founders is a whopping 15 percent abv. It’s aged in bourbon barrels, and can age in your basement for up to 10 years, says Green.  You might want to try it: “[Aging] mellows it out. Right now, at 15 percent, it’ll be a little bit hot—you’ll get the flavors from the alcohol. Letting it age would mellow it out. You’d get more of that bourbon and some more of the malt character, which would make it a l little bit sweeter, a little bit smoother. Much more dangerous.”

5. Cisco Brewers’ Shark Tracker Light Lager

Based in Nantucket, Cisco Brewers partnered with Ocearch, a nonprofit that researches Great White Sharks and “other large apex predators” to preserve, educate, etc. When you buy Shark Tracker, you get a code that grants access to Ocearch’s shark-trackers, so you can see where tagged sharks are marauding at any given moment.
