April 7th is National Beer Day, a marketing opportunity for some, a drinking celebration for others. And with that in mind we’ve some exciting new releases that you might want to have on hand.
A Light Take On An Indeed Classic (Minneapolis, MN) – Indeed Brewing has a new addition to its year-round portfolio that’s a low-octane take on one of its most popular beers. Inspired by its older sibling, Mexican Honey Imperial Lager, Indeed Mexican Honey Light is a 5.2% ABV Lager that like the brewery’s original Imperial Lager was brewed with imported Mexican orange blossom honey to keep things bright and interesting.
A Smashing Collaboration Returns (Asheville, NC) – Longtime friends Hi-Wire Brewing and The Black Abbey had so much fun making SMASH Pils I, they decided to do it again. Hi-Wire/Black Abby SMASH Pils II is a single malt, single hop, 5% ABV Pilsner that is as bright as it is crisp, with subtle hints of Callista hops.
Fog Warning (San Francisco, CA) – Celebrate National Beer Day with something refreshing from Anchor Brewing that puts a San Francisco spin on an American IPA. Bursting with ripe pineapple, melon and resinous pine aromatics, Fog Breaker IPA is a 6.8% ABV India Pale Ale, that’s pumped out of its mind with fresh pine and juicy tropical hops.
Border Crossing (Fort Collins, CO) – New Belgium Brewing partnered with Mexico City’s award-winning Primus Microcerveceria on a new stateside release that is long overdue. Pouring a deep rosé color, Mural Agua Fresca Cerveza is a 4% ABV sweet and slightly tart collaboration that was inspired by the fruit-infused Agua Fresca drinks that are so popular in Mexico.
Tart Behavior (Hershey, PA) – Tröegs Independent Brewing has a new addition to its Tart & Fruit Series that’s super-interesting. Brewed with 12 pounds per barrel of REAL boysenberries soured by lactobacillus, Tröegs Boysenberry Tart Ale is a 4.5% ABV thirst-quencher with a pinch of salt added to amplify its sweet-tart berry tones.
