Craft Beer, Wine & Spirits

Elijah Craig F44 Single Barrel

Our Elijah Craig F44 #12 Barrel Proof Bourbon hit the selves last week and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Grab one soon before it sells out!

Named after the Arbeiter’s head brewer, Aaron Herman, the Hermanator has rich malt flavors with notes of toffee, caramel, and raisin. And to top it off, our beer queen, Kayla, helped Arbeiter make this beer!
