October is ON and American craft brewers are addressing the changing season with more exciting offerings you’re gonna want have around.
Cherry Oh! (Indianapolis, IN) – Sun King Brewing is returning a complex cherry cocktail of wild yeasts and aged in a bevy of barrels. Brewed with an almost reckless abundance of Montmorency cherries, Sun King Cherry Busey is a 6.9% ABV Flanders-style Red Ale with big cherry, raspberry and stone fruit aromatics and a sour sweetness that lingers.
Cherry Busey was the winner of the Bronze Medal at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival in the Belgian-Style Fruit Beer Category, the Silver Medal at the 2016 Great American Beer Festival in the Belgian-Style Fruit Beer Category, and the Bronze Medal at the 2017 Great American Beer Festival in the Belgian-Style Fruit Beer Category.
In Orbit (Portland, OR) – On October 20, Ecliptic Brewing is celebrating its eighth anniversary with return of one of the brewery’s most successful takes on the lager. Brewed with Pilsner malt, Imperial Harvest yeast and heavily dry hopped with Magnum, Adeena, Wurttemberg, and Saaz, Ecliptic Eighth Orbit is an incredibly approachable 5.3% ABV Italian-style Pilsner with a balanced yet complex character and crisp, clean finish.
“In the past, I have always brewed a beer with fruit or other ingredients,” said Ecliptic’s Owner and Brewmaster, John Harris. “This year I wanted a classic, newer style done just right- crisp and clean, waiting to refresh everyone.”
A Bloody Good Time (San Diego, CA) – Ballast Point Brewing has a new early fall limited release that combines the character of a bright Pilsner with Central California’s most beloved fruit. Light and crisp with a prominent aroma of blood orange and citrus, Ballast Point Blood Orange Lager is a 4.8% ABV Pilsner-Style Lager that balances a biscuity malt backbone with sweet orange flavors.
