Peaks and Pints Holiday Season Restock

Did Cousin Eddie clean out your refrigerator? Peaks and Pints bottle shop, taproom and restaurant is open until 11 p.m. today to load up for the remainder of the holiday, including New Year’s Eve. …

THE FIX, Elysian Brewing: A big and bold imperial stout that is just as much a chocolate beer as it is a coffee beer. The Fix also may be the most caffeinated brew on the market, brewed with 9 pounds of Stumptown Coffee Cold Brew, or the equivalent of a 1/2 cup of coffee in every bottle. Elysian then aged the stout on 3,000 pounds of Congolese cocoa nibs from Seattle-based Theo Chocolate. This is an intensely dark and rich beer. 9%

HERDSMAN APRICOT SOUR FARMHOUSE, Dirty Couch Brewing: The Seattle brewery’s sour farmhouse ale saw all the grains with an overnight sour mash, and finished in old Resolute barrels with apricots for sour as hell puckering and a ton of fruit character. 4.6%

WINTER HEART, Urban Family Brewing: In Seattle’s Interbay neighborhood, this low-key brewery has evolved into a powerhouse of small-batch sour ales, including this apricot, blueberry and spice wild ale. 7%

SHINER BIRTHDAY BEER 110: S’MORE, Spoetzl Brewery: Celebrating 110 years, Spoetzl released this brew made with dark, roasted malts that serve up notes of cinnamon and caramel, backed by subtle hints of graham cracker and vanilla. 5%

MASSIVE!, Gigantic Brewing: Gigantic Brewing used only British Halcyon pale malt and boiled for eight hours, giving this barleywine a big fruity nose with dark sugars, a hint of cola, spice, a faint hint of sherry and traces of alcohol. The palate is rich and creamy with cherry, dried fruit and fig, plus toffee in the finish with a touch of bitterness. 12%
