    Vin-Drakonic

    Wild Imperial Stout Fermented w/ Grenache GrapesABV: 11.0%
    The brewers at Drake's have taken their high gravity imperial stout, fermented it on Grenache grape skins, and aged it in Zinfandel barrels for eight months, which turned this malty monster into a completely new creature. The final blend has a pronounced raspberry/grape fruitiness with a pleasant dark chocolate and tobacco-like malt profile. The beer also gained a pleasant tartness from wild fermentation; the final product walks the line somewhere between a glass of wine, an imperial stout, and a Flemish red.

    Million Dollar Face

    Wine Oak-Aged Baltic PorterABV: 9.8%
    A childhood inspiration to Elysian's Capitol Hill brewer, Mr. Jones was a West Philly legend. He would bring joy to the neighborhood with his patented trick, the Million Dollar Face. He was an elegant and refined man, but hiding a rough past; Elysian brewed a beer with these same attributes. Deep and rich with a touch of roast, while still being smooth, and conditioned on oak spirals soaked in Wild Irish Rose to roughen up the edges. Hopefully this beer gives you a Million Dollar Face and lights up your evening.

    Everyone goes on and on about the chocolate babka. "You gotta get the chocolate, you gotta get the chocolate." What's the big deal with chocolate? People love cinnamon! It should be on tables in restaurants. Whenever you hear someone say, "Ooh, this is so good. What's in this pastry IPA?" The answer invariably comes back CINNAMON! CINNAMON! CINNAMON! and vanilla and lactose. A lesser babka? Not likely. Cinnamon takes a back seat to no Babka IPA! Yada, yada, yada, a collaboration with Allegory Brewing.

    The Hydronym

    Baltic PorterABV: 8.1%
    The Hydronym is the strongest lager ever to emerge from a fermentation tank at Golden Valley Brewery. Over 50% Munich malt and a slew of dark and roast specialty malts in the mash gave this beer a chewy, complex malt character that features notes of toffee, stone fruit, licorice, and chocolate.

    Red Wine Barrel-Aged Belgian StoutABV: 9.2%
    Belznickle is a character that brings gifts to the good but will drub the naughty. Inspired by this, Klamath Basin Brewing, in collaboration with Walkabout Brewing, wanted to produce a beer with that persona. What came to be is a Belgian Stout aged in Syrah barrels sourced from another Southern Oregon producer, Folin Cellars. The complexity of flavors is a true gift if you are good, but the naughty should beware of Belznickle's switch.

This festive brew was then aged in three different McMenamins barrels: Hogshead Whiskey, Billy Whiskey, and Three Rocks Rum. These three versions were blended to create Lord of Misrule 2018, a decadent and complex creation.
