New Arrivals from Pine Street, Allagash, De Proef, La Trappe, and an EXCLUSIVE cider from 101 Cider House!


Some new items, and some elusive restocks this week!

The new:

Healthy Spirits is the first retailer in San Francisco to offer 101 Cider House ciders! Natural fermentation of apple and quince juice with delicious additions make for vibrant and fresh flavors. We have:

SoCal Scrumpy
(the flagship base model)

(dry-hopped India Pale Cider. Great aromatics and spice, very little bitterness)

Cactus Red
(prickly pear and agave nectar with a rosy hue and sweet-tart start)


Allagash Century Ale
(Saison aged 2 years in stainless steel with brett. Drink now!)

Pine Street Medium Auburn Amber Ale
(Don't call it an English ale, it's an American amber! With English ingredients)

and making their triumphant return:

De Proef x Port Brewing Signature Ale
(Dirk & Tomme put their John Hancock on a wild Belgian IPA kinda thing. Orignally released in 2007 so you class of '12 tickers can get your apps up to date!)

La Trappe Quadrupel
(to say 750ml bottles of this have been elusive would be an understatement. Get this Trappist classic while you can!)

Firestone Walker Parabola 2015

The wait is finally over! It seems every year the demand for Firestone Walker's barrel-aged beers increases dramatically, with Parabola leading the charge.

Both Healthy Spirits locations have gotten an allocated amount of 2015 Parabola. We do expect to sell out quickly, so here is what you need to know:

Reserving bottles by phone is an exclusive privilege for Beer of the Month Club members. If you're calling to reserve a bottle, you MUST already be a member, in good standing, of our Beer of the Month Club. Otherwise, DO NOT CALL as we expect a high call volume. For more information about our Beer of the Month Club click here!

from Firestone Walker:
One of our most aggressive and sought-after offerings. Bold bourbon, tobacco and espresso aromas and a hint of American oak greet the nose. Rich, chewy roasted malts, charred oak and bourbon-like vanilla fill the palate and create a seamless finish. A remarkably complex brew that offers a transcendental drinking experience – enjoy with good company.

style: Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout
abv: 14%
ibu: 82
color: 167SRM
malts: Crisp Maris Otter Pale, Munich, Cara-hell, Carafa, Dark & Light Crystal, Chocolate, Oats, Roasted Barley

And remember: Healthy Spirits carries a WORLD CLASS selection of barrel-aged ales 365 days a year, including the often overlooked (and Firestone Walker produced) Humboldt Brewing Company's Black Xantus, a bourbon, union, and wine barrel aged java stout.
