April is ON and American craft brewers are addressing things with a full slate of new beers you’re gonna want to chase down.
All The Haze, Half The Calories (Paso Robles, CA) – Firestone Walker’s Mind Haze phenomenon, which already includes Mind Haze, Double Mind Haze and the Mind Haze Tropical Hazy Mixed Pack, continues to expand with the release of a hazy IPA that delivers maximum flavor at just 100 calories per can.
The latest stop on Firestone Walker’s hazy IPA journey that began with the release of the original Mind Haze in 2018, Firestone Mind Haze Light is a 4% ABV Hazy IPA which shares considerable DNA with the original Mind Haze, the same yeast strain and grist, but with Mosaic and El Dorado hops pushed to the forefront.
New From The N/A Corner (Boulder, CO) – Non-Alcoholic beers have come a long way’s since your uncle used to settle for an O’Doul’s. And now a Colorado -based entrepreneur, co-founder, CEO, Dean Eberhardt, and his company Hoplark has developed a new non-alcoholic brew that’s double-dry-hopped out of its mind. Crafted with zero alcohol, zero calories, zero sugar and zero gluten, Hoplark 0.0 is buzz-free alternative made with the finest Citra hops.

But on day 25, Eberhardt went to a brewery to meet a friend, smelled the thick hop taste of a double IPA, and decided he needed the flavor, if not the alcoholic impact. That led him to take the next 18 months in his Boulder garage with his friend and co-founder Andrew Markley, working to develop a beverage made with whole tea leaves and hops. Hoplark was launched in Denver in 2018. With the first batch of cans sold out in just one week,
Mega Vega (Portland, OR) – Ecliptic Brewing just released the latest beer in their Vega IPA Series, which is an official Pink Boots Collaboration. Ecliptic Brewing will donate $1 per pint sold of this beer to Pink Boots Society.
