For the entire month of March we are taking an additional 20% off all bombers! Bombers are 22 oz. singles commonly used by a brewery to showcase a special or limited release beer. Rather than committing to a 6 pack, bombers are a great way to try something new. Larger than a single 12 oz. beer, they are easily shared. Yet smaller than a 40 oz. beer, they can be enjoyed alone. Most people associate this larger bottle with heavier styles of beer like porters and stouts or something that has been barrel aged. Nowadays breweries are using bombers as a format for all styles of beer!

TERRAPIN BREWING, ATHENS GA
THE WALKING DEAD BLOOD ORANGE IPA – ABV 6.7%
Available in 6 pack cans $12.99
So excited about the latest arrival from Terrapin! This blood orange IPA is the official beer of The Walking Dead released just in time for the start of season 7. It’s been known that the guys making The Walking Dead really appreciate local craft beer. Case stacks from Terrapin and other breweries in Georgia, the same place The Walking Dead was filmed, have made appearances in previous episodes of the show. Showing even more appreciation for the craft, Terrapin and the show’s creator Robert Kirkman partnered together to brew a beer TWD fans would love. With a ton of fresh hops and blood orange peel, this IPA is juicy and fresh. A great and easy to drink IPA, this beer was made to be enjoyed while watching the show. Pair it with braaaains!
FOUNDERS BREWING, GRAND RAPIDS MI
ALL DAY IPA SESSION IPA ABV – 4.7%
Available in 15 pack cans $22.99 and 19.2 0z cans $2.00
Well known for being huge players in the extreme beer game, Founder’s has produced beers with some of the biggest flavors and the highest ABV’s craft beer culture has seen. So it’s a little surprising to see them brew a light session ale. Session beers are beers that have ABV’s that will never exceed 5% so you can enjoy multiple in one “session.” Staying true to their “brewed for us” mantra, the guys at Founder’s wanted to make a beer that fit their busy lifestyles. They created their first and only session IPA to pack in as much flavor and complexity as any of their other beers but with more drinkability. All Day has big floral aromas and a clean citrus taste with a slight bitter finish that lingers on the tongue. Not heavy on the malts so it’s pretty thin bodied but that makes this IPA that much more easy to drink.
21ST AMENDMENT BREWERY, SAN FRANCISCO, CA
HELL OR HIGH WATERMELON AMERICAN WHEAT ALE – ABV 4.9%
Available in 6 pack cans $10.99 and 15 pack cans $28.99
The famous seasonal from 21st Amendment is back at Taylor’s! It started out as a traditional wheat beer and then underwent a second fermentation process using fresh watermelons. You can smell the sweet watermelon when you open the can! It may seem like the fruit would be the star here, but don’t forget this is a wheat beer first. The watermelon dances underneath those warm malty flavors and lingers on your tongue rather than dominates the entire experience. Definitely a must have Spring and Summer beer.
RALEIGH BREWING, RALEIGH NC
FIRST SQUEEZE AMERICAN WHEAT ALE $10.99 – ABV 6%
Available in 6 pack cans $10.99
Known to some as “Big Squeeze,” Raleigh Brewing had to change the name of this seasonal wheat beer after Harpoon Brewing created a shandy by the same name. The current name serves as a reminder that Raleigh Brewing’s Big Squeeze was the “First Squeeze.” Completely different than a shandy, this is a classic American style wheat beer. Very light with a creamy mouthfeel, First Squeeze only includes wheat, malted barley, and caramel malts. The extra layer of citrus is created from the addition of blood orange peels. Overall a simple and smooth ale.
