Westbrook Mexican Cake Beer

There are some beers that work best before a meal and others that pair nicely with your main course, and then there are beers like Mexican Cake ($10), that fit best alongside whatever you might be having for dessert — or as the dessert itself. Up and coming Westbrook Brewing out of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, celebrated their first anniversary way back in 2011, and for the first time brewed this delectable imperial stout that is aged on cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks and fresh habanero peppers. It was a big hit, big enough that they've brought it back now due to popular demand. So seek out a bottle or two, and skip dessert in favor of some of this after-dinner brew.

  • AleSmith Speedway Stout Beer

    Most of the coffee stouts on the market today owe a debt of gratitude to Speedway Stout ($12) from AleSmith Brewing. It wasn't the first Imperial Stout to have a strong coffee profile, but certainly set the tone for plenty of other big coffee stouts that have followed in its tire tracks. It's a huge stout with plenty of chocolate and coffee, both that play well off each other, providing an excellent balance that is incredibly easy to drink. But there's no need to race to the finish when navigating this Speedway, at 12% ABV, it's best to just stay in your lane and enjoy the ride.

  • Churchkey Beer

    Believe it or not, beer used to come in cans that required you to put in a bit of work before you could enjoy their hoppy essence. Churchkey Beer ($TBA) is looking to bring that experience back with a flavorful, golden Pilsner that comes in a flat-top can — leaving you only one way to get the sudsy goodness out. Extra points for friends that have a churchkey on hand without you warning them first. [Scouted by JT]
