Now that we’ve entered the fall beer season, it’s the seasonals that we’re really excited about …And we’ve some autumn offerings, (and one new year-round release) that you’re definitely going to want to check out.
Wee Heavy Meets Dry Fly (Pacific City, OR) – Pelican Brewing will be returning a special release this Saturday. But it’s uber-limited so plan on getting to one of their three brewpub locations fairly early. Barrel-aged to perfection, Pelican Captain of the Coast is a 9.5% ABV award-winning Wee Heavy that’s been marinating in Washington Wheat Whiskey barrels from Dry Fly Distilling in Spokane, Washington.
Not Rolling Over (Minneapolis, MN – Indeed Brewing is going all in on a winning blend of Centennial, Denali, Eureka, and El Dorado hops with their latest release. From the deliberately lightened hop backbone to its exotic menu of big name and experimental hops, Indeed Let It Roll IPA is a 6.2% India Pale Ale with big notes of citrus, lemon, and pineapple.
A Catch And Release Goes Year Round (Atlanta, GA) – SweetWater Brewing is moving a popular limited release to their year-round portfolio. Juicy and bodacious, with pronounced notes of papaya, pineapple and passionfruit, SweetWater TripleTail is a 5.5% ABV IPA that’s basically a vacation in a glass.
Wanderlust (Anaheim, CA) – Bruery Terreux has returned the 2017 version of a GABF award-winning sour that they’ve blended with their bourbon barrel-aged anniversary ale. Aged in wine barrels with blackberries and cherries, The Wanderer 2017 is an 8.3% ABV blend with dark fruit notes with a nice sour tinge.
Seasonal Sessional (Comstock, MI) – Bell’s Brewery is shipping a popular seasonal that spends six weeks fermenting. Flush with herbal and earthy aromatics and toned by lightly roasted malt, Bell’s Oktoberfest Beer is a 5.5% ABV medium-bodied lager that drinks smooth and is never too sweet.
