- New Albanian Citra Dry-hopped American Mild. Much dry-hopping on 22 IBU base. (Dry hops don't count as IBUs even though they give an initial aroma attack). Grapefruit and Tangerine. Malt comes through second. Then a lingering bitter finish. American Brown? 3.8%
- NABC bracket APA Summit – Single hop playoff. Dry and spicy
- NABC bracket APA Warrior – Similar bitterness. Smoother. Grassy. Nice. Advance this one to the semis.
- Weissenohe Altfrankisches Kloisterbier – On tap at NABC's Public House. $6.50/ . liter. Cream, pure thick cream mouthfeel. Toasted marshmallow without being annoyingly sweet. Hops are hidden. 5.2%. Magnificent dessert beer. Not a desert island beer but a wonderful experience.

They are hopping the River and coming to the NABC Public House today.
