Summer is peaking and brewers are addressing the season with intriguing new late summer offerings you’re gonna want to have around.
Berry Good (Waitsfield, VT) – An award-winning Vermont craft brewery with a commitment to quality and sustainability, Lawson’s Finest Liquids has new summertime limited release that’s almost too much fun. Brewed using berries from wild plants with lacy white flowers that are native to New England, Lawson’s Elderberry Gose is a tart and salty summer seasonal that will not disappoint.
Elderberry Gose is also proudly woman-powered, imagined and brewed by Julie Smith, Lawson’s Finest’s brewery lab manager. “Kettle souring and a light malt base leave this brew with a pleasant pucker that gives way to a clean, fruity sip,” said Smith. “The color highlights the herbal flavor profile of elderberries while the flavors offer an exciting and refreshing profile for summer that is a bit different from traditional citrusy sours.”
Heaven In Bavaria (White Plains, NY) – Any serious discussion of Oktoberfest beers needs to return to the land where it all started and proud beer capitals like Munich, Germany and Hacker-Pschorr (which is distributed in the states by Paulaner, USA) brews one of the best!
Brewed using naturally sourced spring water (and one of only six Munich breweries allowed to serve beer at the city’s world-famous Oktoberfest celebration) Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Märzen is a balanced 5.8% ABV amber-colored lager that stands with the best in the world.
New In The N/A Corner (Calgary, Canada) – With more craft breweries than ever before, brewing serious non-alcoholic beer, ACB has expanded its coverage to include new NA beers that matter. And Partake Brewing has a year-round offering that matters. Not too sweet nor to tart, Partake Peach Gose is not only stylistically convincing and perfect for the summer months, its only 25 calories and delicious.
