Cigar of the Week Rocky Patel Special Reserve Sun Grown Maduro $9.99 (+10% OFF) Strength: Full Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Origin: Nicaragua Sun Grown goes dark. Rocky Patel has achieved nearly mythical status in our industry, and as his travel schedule attests, is one of the hardest working men in the biz. Despite this hectic workload, Rocky continues to amaze with one stunning blend after another. This new release adds a maduro option to his fan favorite Sun Grown line. Sun Grown Maduro is brazenly full-bodied, coming with a broadleaf maduro wrapper atop dual binders and Nicaraguan long-fillers. A bona fide treat for the full-bodied fan, hearty and booming flavors will electrify you, setting the table for a sensational and enjoyable ride. Construction is spot on, and you’ll savor the long, pleasant finish. Great news! Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro was named the #2 Cigar of the Year in 2016 and received a well-deserved 95-point rating, noting: “an attractive appearance that hints at the bold blend of Nicaraguan tobacco under the broadleaf wrapper—and they harmonize beautifully, imparting earthy, nutty notes and bittersweet chocolate with the sweeter properties of the wrapper.” Beer of the Week-on draft Nowhere in Particular Batch 14 6% ABV 16oz. $5.99 32oz. $9.99 64oz. $18.99 Batch 014: Whirlpool of Hops Double Dry Hopped New England Style Pale Ale From the *Hobo’s Brewery… All the buzzwords in this guy. If we are going to make a pale ale, you better believe we are going to drop a metric f*** ton of hops in it, and do it our own way. This beer has no hops in the boil, just in the whirlpool and in the dry hop. This huge late addition of hops gives this guy tons of tropical fruit hop flavors while keeping the bitterness low, so this is kinda a juice bomb. Low alcohol and light body on this brew means you can drink a bunch of them if you wanted to, and we bet you will after trying this tasty liquid. *What Is A Hobo Brewery? With a backpack as his bindlestick, Charles Navillus glides from town to town like a better beer fairy, alighting on breweries and blessing them with his barley-based goodness. The King of the Hobos calls no brick-and-mortar his home. Instead, he rents unused fermentation capacity at established breweries, filling otherwise empty fermenters with high-octane magic. Not being shackled to a building allows Navillus as much freedom to create as he has to move. His beers dart from style to style, rarely brewing the same beer twice. Blink and you will miss him, with only archaic and incoherent hobo signs drawn in the sand as evidence of his having passed through. Thank you for joining us for another fun Halloween at The Lincoln!
