Bucks County Brewed (Croydon, PA) – Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company is an award-winning craft brewery and taproom located just north of Philadelphia in Bucks County. And they’ve an eye-opening new collaboration that combines the brewery’s two greatest loves – coffee and beer.
Deftly crafted using custom house blend from Philly’s own Ellis Coffee, Neshaminy Creek Rippin’ Pints is a 5.4% ABV medium-bodied Brown Ale that was cold-conditioned on whole beans from Ellis in a process similar to how cold press coffee is made.
“The fun thing about this business is getting to share the finished product with friends so it’s even better when your friends are involved in the entire process. They’re bringing their unique skills and points of view to make a richer, tastier experience,” says Owner and Lead Brewer, Rob Jahn. “Our long-time friendship inspired Rippin’ Pints, but our combined expertise produced great beers worth celebrating.”
It’s A Smash! (Littleton, CO) – A SMASH IPA is a type of beer made using a single malt (SM) and (A) single hop (SH). Ten years ago brewers were brewing them regularly but nowadays not as much. But Living the Dream Brewing has a new one that reminded us about how much fun they can be.
Crafted with Zappa Hops, named in honor of Frank Zappa, and Colorado-grown Root Shoot Malting Genie Pale, Living the Dream Zap! Smash! is a 5.4% ABV SMASH India Pale Ale brimming with rich mango, passion fruit, citrus and pine notes.
Made Of Stout Stuff ( Salt Lake City / Denver) – Epic Brewing Utah’s first brewery since prohibition to brew exclusively high alcohol content beer has returned its Big Bad Baptist Stout Series for 2022. And while all this year’s variations are worth your time, we found this one uber-interesting.
Aged to perfection in whiskey barrels with toasted coconut and cacao, Big Bad Baptist Toasted Coconut: 2022 Rare Release is a hearty 12.4% ABV Imperial Stout that will not disappoint.
