The 4th of July is now behind us and American craft brewers are addressing mis-summer with a full slate of new beers you’re gonna want to chase down.
Shake it Up (Exton, Pa) – Just in time for hitting the beach, Iron Hill Brewery is returning something special which was first released in the Summer of 2021 as a limited run and sold out within just a few weeks of its debut.
Brewed with lactose and finished with blood orange puree, Orange Creamsicle Milkshake IPA is a 7% ABV India Pale Ale with a silky-smooth mouthfeel reminiscent of the iconic creamy orange sherbet treat.
“Our brewery team worked relentlessly to get the right flavor and creamy mouthfeel balanced with the hops of an IPA,” said Mark Edelson, Founder, and VP of Beer. In its debut last summer at Iron Hill locations, it was sold out within 3 weeks. So we brewed a lot more this year to keep up with demand.”
Two Toned (Manhattan, KA / Durango, CO) – Ska Brewing and Manhattan Brewing Company just debuted a collaboration beer they did together which is now available in both Kansas and Colorado.
In the true spirit of collaboration, 2 Tone IPA was made at Ska with a pitch of Manhattan’s house yeast strain that they brought to Durango from Kansas. The two brewing teams hopped this batch with modern hop selections Sabro, Sultana and Idaho 7, and chose a hopping schedule to create juice instead of haze.
Line Up (Littleton, CO) – Living The Dream Brewing is canning a taproom favorite for the very first time. Named for the 71-mile High Line Canal trail that connects communities across the Denver Metropolitan area’s most dense population with 27 walkable, equestrian and bike-friendly segments, High Line Pilsner is a crisp and 5% ABV lager that was first brewed two years ago, and its taproom popularity has only grown from there.
