Spring has arrived, and summer not all that far away…And American brewers are addressing things with a variety of interesting beers that you might want to chase down.
One Way Or Another (Portland, OR) – Cascade Brewing recently returned a collaboration project that it originally did with Bruery Terreux. Crafted with Northwest-grown marionberries and Meyer lemon zest, Cascade One Way or Another 2017 is a 9.3% ABV Sour Blonde blend with fresh citrus and spruce tips notes with a lively yet dry finish.
A Collaboration Session Goes Hazy (Asheville, NC) – Hi-Wire Brewing and their buds at Oskar Blues recently teamed up to brew something hazy. Fiercely fueled with Wataku and Cashmere hops, Hi-Wire/Oskar Blues Haze-Sesh is a 4.9% ABV Hazy/New England-Style Session IPA with a lively citrus punch.
Moon Walking (Saint Louis, MO) – Schlafly Beer just released the Lunar Lager Variety Pack, a special sampler made up of four exclusive lagers, brewed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. And here’s what’s in it…
Schlafly Lift-Off Lager (5.5%, 20 IBUs): This unfiltered German lager calls back to the moments during one of the most exciting accomplishments in America. The light golden, hazy beer is an ode to the haze that filled the air that day.
Schlafly Apollo’s Orbit Black Lager (5.0%, 25 IBUs): Although it’s as dark as the view outside Apollo’s window, this lager is smooth, crisp and drinkable.
Schlafly Moon Walk Dunkel (4.5%, 20 IBUs): This dark, malty German lager pays tribute to the two brave men who strolled across the moon 50 years ago. The dark brown lager is balanced in both malty sweetness and hops.
Schlafly The Eagle Has Landed American Lager (5.0%, 25 IBUs): Light, golden and refreshing, this true American lager pays homage to the famous phrase that has been cemented as one of the most memorable sayings in our history.
