Cigar of the Week
Nub Nuance Limited Edition
$7.99 (+10% OFF)

Strength: Medium
Wrapper: Indonesian
Origin: Dominican Republic

I’m nubbin’ it.

Nub — the Napoleon of the cigar industry. What do I mean by that? Well, both these handmades and the petite French general are short, stubby, and swept the nation by storm! Starting with the traditionally wrapped Nub line, and moving on to the deliciously coffee-influenced Nub Café, these stout gordos from Oliva capture the best part of cigars in a concentrated form. The newest chapter of the Nub story? Nub Nuance, a lineup of seasonally festive cigars that no one can deny.

Utilizing high-quality Indonesian wrapper, Fall Harvest delivers a dish of pumpkin spice to your palate, while skipping all the calories. Nicaraguan binder and Dominican long-fillers mean you’ll find some slightly sweet tobacco flavors and a slight earthiness in this blend as well. A pleasant combo.

Winter Blend: Continuing the success of the popular Nub Nuance line, Winter Blend is a seasonal blend that you can enjoy any time of year. Super flavorful with notes of coffee and peppermint, Winter Blend is warm and inviting.

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.”

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!
We saw some amazing costumes and had some even better beers.
Congrats to Marcy & Don on their Black Widow & Prey for winning the costume contest!

8 Wired is finally here, we feel like we’ve been forever!

Cigar of the Week
Camacho
American Barrel Aged
$11.99 (+10% off!)

Strength:  Medium-Full
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Origin:  Dominican Republic

Camacho delivers an American classic.

New innovations are seen a lot in the cigar industry. Everyone is trying to up the ante in one way or another. Some are flush and some are bust, but it never hinders manufacturers from giving it a go. But here, we have an absolute homerun for team innovation. Camacho has been thinking outside the box for some time now, and with the cigar at hand, they pulled a Babe Ruth and knocked this one straight out of the park. Enter, Camacho’s newest innovation, American Barrel Aged.

Utilizing nearly 100% American leaves, Camacho Barrel Aged boasts a bold, oily Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper with American Broadleaf tobaccos also making appearances in the binder and filler tobaccos. The key to the blend comes in the form of a special Corojo filler leaf that’s aged for 6 years, only to be additionally stored in bourbon barrels to impart a truly unique flavor to an already stellar blend. The first Camacho to be produced in Davidoff of Geneva’s prestigious Dominican factory, American Barrel Aged showcases bold notes of pepper, cashew, and sweet spices that are accented by a slight undertone of bourbon to deliver a blend you won’t soon forget.


Beer of the Week-on draft
Reformation
Oren IPA
5.5% ABV
16oz. $4.99  32oz. $7.99  64oz. $14.99

An India Pale Ale with a fresh hop flavor, bright citrus notes, and a dry, crisp finish, Oren is designed for moments of refuge — whether it’s an escape from the southern summer heat, or a moment of refreshment in a chaotic world.
Oren arises from our Keeping Room “Hop Expeditions,” experiments in small batch hop and malt combinations. Refreshing & easy-drinking, Oren speaks to the story of craft beer that, for many, is defined by the IPA style.
The centuries-old story of the India Pale Ale has many chapters, and Oren is our latest offering in that grand narrative.

Cigar of the Week
Alec Bradley Black Market
$8.99 (+10% off!)

Strength:  Medium
Wrapper: Nicaraguan
Origin:  Honduras

So good, it should be illegal.

When Alan Rubin commits to a project, quality standards of the highest decree are implemented, sparing no resource in the process. As a result, Alan Rubin, the founder of Alec Bradley cigars, has bee​n churning out delectable blends since 1997. His prestigious line is continually receiving countless praise from the nation’s top cigar advocates – Cigar Aficionado, Cigar journal, Cigar insider (you get the point). Bragging about his innumerable 90+ ratings almost feels arbitrary….almost. So in short, Alan Rubin’s masterful blends are good. Scratch that, great.

The latest release from Alec Bradley cigars, Black Market, was launched at the 2011 IPCPR tradeshow (a festival for industry geeks). This 4-country blend is jam-packed with Jamastran, Honduras and Panamanian long-fillers, capped off by a lively Sumatra binder and powerful Nicaraguan wrapper leaf. Upon first lighting, the blend burns with purpose. Unique and satisfying arrays of flavors greet your palate, as spice, pepper, and peaty undertones finish the ensemble. With a long dry finish, and slow burn, the Black Market cigar is a finger burner.

Alec Bradley Black Market received a well-deserved 90-rating, noting: “A thick log of a cigar with a full, even draw. Herbal notes of juniper become sweet and cedary, taking on touches of nut and candied orange peel.”

Lagunitas
Born Again Yesterday
7.0% ABV
16oz. $4.99  32oz. $8.99  64oz. $16.99

An UnFiltered Born Again Pale Ale for all the wet hop lovers!

We’ve discovered that the Lagunitas brewers are part time alchemists… they’ve figured out how to keep wet hops wet all freakin’ year long! The next beer in our 2017 #OneHitter Series is this Born Again Yesterday Pale Ale, which features a delicious concoction of wet hops, reborn and unfiltered into our Born Yesterday Pale Ale. Congrats… It’s a beer again!

MORE ABOUT THE FREAKIN’ WET HOPS:

To figure out this brand new wet hop preservation process, we had to forget everything that we already knew about how hops are processed and preserved. We tried 5 or 6 different things to try and achieve this process (some of which failed miserably), then we discovered a relatively simple process that deliberately did all the things that the textbooks told us not to do.

This new proprietary process involves a lot of time and money, and even more thinking about hops and freshness in new ways. From all of this, we found a brand-spankin’-new way to preserve the hops, fresh from the Yakima Valley trellises, first born during harvest season into the Born Yesterday last fall, and reborn into this scary new next step, the Born Again Yesterday Pale Ale, six months later, to the beer in your hands today.


Nantahala was a blast, don’t miss another great Friday with us at The Lincoln join us this Friday for Boulevard and Creature Comfort!
