It is our goal to provide a thorough selection of beers including the newest that are available in West Alabama, and more specifically Tuscaloosa. Although we don't necessarily receive new beer every week, new products are regularly available in our market.
Our selection at Spirits Lakeside, on Rice Mine Road, includes approximately 150 different beers and changes on a seasonal, if not weekly, basis. The products listed below are currently in stock (subject to availability) at the Spirits Lakeside location.
Our selection of Craft Beer at the original Spirits, INC., on McFarland Boulevard, is growing as we are currently in the process of adding high-gravity, gourmet brews. The overall selection at this location is a bit smaller than the store on Rice Mine Rd., but includes our most popular selling brands and brews. We will keep you posted as the selection grows.

The palate is full-bodied and toasty with roasted malt and nutty flavors and gentle hop bitterness. A balanced brew with a pleasant aftertaste.
Mythos Hellenic Lager- Soft golden/yellow in color with medium head and white lace. Skunky notes are present on the lovely lager-scented nose with pleasant undertones of citrus and grain. The entry is clean and fresh with skunky-lager suggestions. Refreshing and easy-to-drink.
Magic Hat Elder Betty Elderberryweiss- Cloudy dark yellow/light amber in color with a foamy white head. Citrus, floral and wheaty scents marry with slight suggestions of berry fruits on the sweet nose. The palate is dry with notes of wheat and grain and hints of berry fruit that lingers on the finish.
Sam Adams Porch Rocker Bavarian Radler with Lemonade- Light yellow/gold in color with a soft lacy head. Lemony-fresh aromas of ripe citrus fruit, sweet lemonade and wheat are followed by a sweet, tangy and zesty entry. Notes of lemonade meet wheaty suggestions within a sweet palate. Refreshing and simple with a tasty, lingering aftertaste.
Pilsner Urquell- Golden yellow in color with very little head and slight white lace. Citrus and wheat notes are present on the nose with toasty undertones- fresh and inviting. The entry is crisp and slightly bitter that carries through to the aftertaste. Pleasant and refreshing.
Kona Big Wave Golden Ale- Yellow like the color of a lemon with minimal head. The aroma is delicious with fruity/citrus notes and hints of flowery hops and cut grass. It is both sweet and tart on the entry with nice effervescence and balanced hop presence. Crisp and pleasant with a wheat-filled finish.
Southern Tier Hop Sun Wheat Ale- Pale yellow in color with a large foamy head and thick lace. The nose offers floral skunky notes of fresh hops with bitter, sour undertones- smells like a field of hops in bloom! Crisp on the palate with sweet citrus and hops notes that are nicely balanced. A bright and cheery brew.
Estaminet Premium Pils- Very appealing golden straw color with minimal head and lace. Skunky hints on the nose meet mild citrus aromas followed by a crisp entry with slight bitterness. The finish is pleasant and fresh. An appealing brew that offers good value.
Dixie Blackened Voodoo- This old favorite is dark brown/coffee in color with a tawny head and lace. Light floral scents marry with deep notes of toasted malts, roasted nuts and chocolate hints- smells delicious! It is full-bodied and quite flavorful with a long grainy/malty finish and good complexity.
Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy- Cloudy, pale yellow in color with a slightly foamy head. Citrus notes combine with inviting lemonade scents on the inviting nose. The entry is sweet and tart with wheaty flavors and more lemonade components. A simple yet refreshing and tasty summer-sipper.
Boulevard Boss Tom's Golden Bock- Slightly cloudy, golden/orange in color with a nice head and lace. Sweet grain and wheat notes are quite appealing followed by a fruity entry and a balanced, textured mouthfeel with hints of floral hoppy bitterness. A solid brew.

Old Black Bear Cave City Lager- Surprisingly dark in color for a lager- brown/black cola color with thick amber foam and lace. Chocolate-y/malty scents fill the glass, followed by a bold and bitter entry. The mouthfeel is not as textured as a porter would be, but lighter in body with gentle hop presence, nicely balanced with its malty counterparts; although notes of coffee and mocha are delicious, they are a bit out of place in this lager.
Newcastle Bombshell Blonde- Pale, Chardonnay yellow in color with a light, frothy white lace. The aroma is gentle and mild with notes of grass, wheat and sawdust. The entry is crisp and clean with fresh hop flavors that are subtle, yet balanced, followed by a refreshing, slightly bitter finish. A great session brew.

Left Hand NITRO Milk Stout- Beautiful opaque black in the glass with a thick tan head and pretty lace. Delicious aromas of malty chocolate and coffee; sweet, attractive scents. A rich and creamy entry with maple syrup, grill "char", smoke and mouthcoating sweet malty notes and slight bitterness that carries through to the lingering finish.
Steinlager Pure- Straw/lemon yellow in color with very little head. Clean, slightly-citrus lager aromas with wheaty undertones. Crisp and slightly sweet on the entry with good texture and a refreshing finish. An outstanding session brew!

Juicy and fresh on the palate with lots of grapefruit/citrus flavors and a medium-bodied texture. The finish is long with mild hops and slight bitterness. A delicious summer brew!
