With Memorial Day now a memory, summer is officially ON…And brewers are addressing the season with a variety of interesting beer offerings that make delicious sense.
A Sour Situation At Three Weavers (Inglewood, CA) – With days growing warmer and lasting a lot longer, beer refreshment matters. And Three Weavers Brewing has a tart new release that will quench you thirst and leave you with a slight pucker at the same time. Soured with lactobacillus and fermented with passionfruit puree, Three Weaver Sun Trap is a 4.5% ABV thirst quencher finished with Mendocino sea salt and lemon peel for a bright and refreshing mouthfeel that lingers.
Road Trip! (Pacific City, OR) – The sun’s blasting and the surf’s coming in strong…And Pelican Brewing is celebrating summertime in Oregon with something seasonal and smart. Named for the Three Capes Loop in Pelican’s scenic backyard and conceived as the ideal beer for Pacific drinking, Pelican 3 Capes IPA is a 6.1% ABV India Pale Ale with a rich golden “setting sun” color and BIG tropical fruit, grapefruit, and strawberry notes layered on a sturdy malt backbone.
Encore This! (Cleveland, OH) – Music and beer are always a perfect pairing and with that in mind Great Lakes Brewing has announced a new limited release that they did in collaboration with the rock band O.A.R. Named for the band’s 2019 album The Mighty, and available in 16 oz. cans throughout Northeast Ohio and at select O.A.R shows this summer, Great Lakes The Mighty is a 4.5% ABV Amber Lager with a light ambience, a silken mouthfeel and a deceptive complexity.
Tangerine Dreams (Louisiana ) –New Orleans’ craft beer leader, NOLA Brewing has a new summer limited release that takes tangerines (and Witbier) to the next level. Brewed for summer drinking and Louisiana’s Gulf Coast heat in particular, Nola Tangerine Wheat is a 5.5% ABV light-bodied and fruit-forward refresher.
