2016 Hibernal Fluxus Rye: 6.0 – It’s not remotely like what you expect from Allagash’s fluxus, but that’s okay. It is a delicious stout, well balanced in terms of flavor, and is beyond easy to drink.

Price Average: Name $12 for 6-Pack

Price Average: Name $12 for 6-Pack

Bar Harbor Blueberry Ale: 5.0 – Initially this is one of our favorite blueberry beers; however as you get farther along in the taste you wish it ended crisp and cleanly. However it sort of gets a bit more ‘pie-like’ if you could describe it.

Price Average: Bar Harbor Blueberry Ale $10 for 6-Pack
