Yay it’s May. And American craft brewers are addressing things with a full slate of new beers you’re gonna want to chase down.
Going With The Phlow (Jackson Hole, WY) – The temperatures are warming and Roadhouse Brewing is celebrating the transition with a new limited release in keeping with the brewery’s mantra to ‘Live Deep.’ Inspired by the culture of stand-up paddle boarding, Roadhouse The Phlow is an approachable 5% ABV IPA which showcases new hops to the brewery’s production line up, including Sabro and especially Vista.
“Vista was a hop we knew we needed to showcase because it is one we have been playing around a lot with over the past few years,” said Roadhouse Brewmaster Max Shafer. “Our involvement with The Hop Research Council allowed us to be one of the first breweries in the US to get our hands on Vista, and honestly it was just love at first sight for me.”
Amusing (San Francisco, CA) – 21st Amendment Brewery is welcoming warmer weather with a brand new release that cans the amusement park concept. With packaging depicting a magical portal into an amusement park, 21st Amendment Coaster Pils is a 5.4% ABV Hoppy Pilsner that’s a hop-fueled ride.

There is a reason this style is popular and exciting right now,” said Shaun O’Sullivan, Co-Founder and Brewmaster at 21st Amendment Brewery. “There is a reason this style is popular and exciting right now. It has a snappy flavor, crisp lines and wonderful hoppy flavors and aromas.”
Punch Drunk (St Louis, MO) – Schlafly Beer has announced the release of a new seasonal beer, its first new summer style in many years. Schlafly Hazy Punch IPA is a 6% ABV India Pale Ale punch brewed with hops that lend a juiciness to the brew which is further amplified by the addition of Cara Cara Oranges and pineapple.
“This beer is several years in the making and has quite the backstory on Schlafly’s efforts to stay at the forefront of new and experimental hops,” said Schlafly Lead Brewer Jared Williamson. “It features the newest hop variety from Australia, Eclipse, and the yet to be named experimental hop HBC-586 from Yakima, along with well-known Citra and Mosaic. The flavor bursting hops offer juicy notes of mandarin and other citrus flavors.”
