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.

BeerStyles: Dark
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.

ABOUT THE BREWERY:
Stillwater Artisanal is the nomadic ‘gypsy’ brewing venture headed by Baltimore native, Brian “Stillwater” Strumke. A former internationally renowned techno DJ and producer who rather quickly made his mark in the home-brewing community for his often odd concoctions and unconventional brewing methods. Competitions often yielded wins in the more esoteric categories and his intricate use of herbs, spices, wild yeasts, and anything else he could get his hands on often came to judges with both intrigue and enjoyment. In 2010, after about 5 years of backyard brewing, Brian has taken Stillwater Artisanal Ales to the public. Traveling the world to collaborate with various breweries hand-crafting small-batch, authentic ales.
