As the Official Beer of Record Store Day, this is an “Analog Beer for the Digital Age.” A golden orange Belgian-style Tripel, it’s brewed with orange peel, green cardamom, peppercorns and vanilla. Request a song and enjoy a glass!

Karben4 Dragon Flutedragonflute

One of Madison, Wisc.’s best upstart brewers, three-year-old K4 set out to “Make America(n Pale Ales) Great Again!” A combination of Mosaic and Centennial hopes creates a balanced beer not as aggressive as an American IPA, but certainly not as passive as an English Pale Ale.
