Spring is coming and American craft brewers are addressing things with a full slate of new beer offerings to help you weather the transition.
Beer Run (San Diego, CA) – – AleSmith Brewing has teamed up with fellow SoCal brewery Pizza Port Brewing and created a defining collaboration release that’s worth ‘running’ down. Packed with a unique blend of Enigma, Cashmere and Sabro hops, AleSmith / Pizza Port Beach Run is a 6.9% ABV West Coast-Style IPA with berry and stone fruit aromatics and a rounded bitterness that lingers.
“We’re stoked to partner with our pals at Pizza Port Brewing Company to release this hop forward West Coast-style IPA,” said Ryan Crisp, Head Brewer at AleSmith. “Teaming up with a brewery that shares our passion for hops always makes for a fun and exciting experience,” “Pizza Port is honored to be brewing this collab with our OG SD cousins at AleSmith, “ added Sean Farrell, Director of Brewing Operation at Pizza Port Brewing. “Our two companies have been proudly carrying the IPA flag here in town for a while.”
A Little Classic (Boulder, CO) – Avery Brewing has a new addition to one of its most popular flagships, White Rascal. Crafted with authentic Belgian yeast and a traditional malt bill of 50% wheat, and Citron Limon, Meyer lemon, and Lemondrop hops, Avery Little Rascal is a sessionable 4.5% ABV Belgian-Style White Ale with a hazy straw color and a subtle citrus finish.
Lo-Cal Pal (New Orleans, LA / Houston, TX) – Urban South Brewery has a new year-round offering that’s both approachable and affordable. Easy-drinking and budget friendly, Urban South Paradise Park Lo-Cal IPA is an uber-flavorful 4% ABV India Pale Ale with a more affordable price point and only 120 calories.
Sour Power (Chippewa Falls, WI) – It’s interesting when a heritage brewery like Leinenkugel’s steps out of their comfort zone and its newest release does that and delivers. Just tart enough to keep it interesting, but not overly so, Leinenkugel’s Juicy Peach is a 4,4% ABV Sour Ale with light tart notes balanced with the sweet flavor of natural peaches.
