Stone Crime & Punishment Beer

Sometimes, there is a certain amount of extra testosterone required to eat intensely hot chili peppers. And it might take even more to tip back a bottle of one of Stone Brewing's new fiery beers Crime and Punishment ($18). Stone co-founder Greg Koch started with barrel aged Lukcy Basartd (correct spelling) and Double Bastard, and then dumped a variety of estate-grown chile peppers into the beer. The results are two ruthless, sweat-inducing beverages that are not for the faint of heart. This is the first time Stone is nationally distributing beer from their limited Stone Quingenti Millilitre Series, so keep an eye out, if you can stand the heat.

  • Beachwood Brewing Udder Love Beer

    If the flavors you crave when you reach for a stout include a little dairy, then look no further than Udder Love ($8) from Beachwood Brewing in California. Udder Love is said to be a traditional milk stout, but with rich flavors like bittersweet chocolate, milk sugar, and roasty coffee, it's probably a new tradition for most. One tradition that is quite common though, is how often this beer brings home awards, including a Silver this year at the Great American Beer Festival in the Sweet Stout category. It's a gentle, delicate beer that finishes like a tasty glass of coffee chocolate milk.

  • The Bruery Windowsill Beer

    There are plenty of gimmicky craft beers hitting store shelves these days, and sadly, not very many of them live up to their unique descriptions. Windowsill ($20) from The Bruery however, is one of the rare exceptions. The idea hit KCRW's Good Food host Evan Klieman after enjoying a homemade Rhubarb Raspberry Pie, and a collaboration was born. Specialty grains were chosen to mimic the crust, and rhubarb and raspberries were used during stages of the brewing process. It has a tart fruit taste, a bit of pie crust malt, and a delicately masked 10.5% ABV.
