Menelik Stout
United States

Menelik, or as it is also called, Menelik Mansplanation Stout, is a beer about listening, tuning in and being a counterweight to toxic masculinity. It has a ton of ingredients and a very difficult brew, so in a way, it is impossible to talk about without getting into some mansplaining yourself. Brewed with yellow raisins, coffee, vanilla, cocoa nibs, almonds, hazelnuts, nut mix, spice, milk chocolate and lactose sugar.

Style: Imperial Stout
ABV: 11% alcohol / volume

Maz CanOmnipollo
Maz
Belgium

Omnipollo Maz (formerly Mazarin) is brewer, Henok Fentie’s take on a “thinker’s beer”. Rather than being big and indecipherably complex, Henok wanted to create something that would calm a hop yearning nerve without fuddling the brain too much. In his words, this beer is “a lavishly hopped ale with judicious ABV — an Extra Special Pale Ale, if you will”. This Pale Ale received a gold medal at the Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival in 2013.
