Spring is ON and American craft brewers are addressing things with exciting new beers you’re gonna want to have around.
BrewDog Tees Up New “Caddyshack” Beer (USA) BrewDog and Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products have joined forces to tee-off a new beer that celebrates the comedic cult classic “Caddyshack.” Named after the country club that was home to the 1980 film, BrewDog Bushwood is a crisp 5% ABV Pilsner brimming with sweet malt aromatics and grassy notes that inform but never overpower.
“The whole BrewDog team is thrilled to dust off our clubs and collaborate with Warner Bros. to celebrate Caddyshack with a delicious, new pilsner,” says Jason Block, CEO of BrewDog USA. “We are excited to celebrate a classic film such as Caddyshack and create a quality, on-theme brew. We are grateful for the opportunity to pay homage to a film which has kept us laughing for decades.”
Buzz-Free And Pretty Damned Brilliant (Dublin) – Non-Alcoholic beers have come a long way’s since your uncle used to order an O’Doul’s. And now Guinness has introduced its own non-alcoholic take on its classic dry stout and it did not disappoint. Amazingly close stylistically to Guinness Draught in all aspects except buzz, Guinness 0 boasts its beautifully smooth taste, perfectly balanced flavor, unique dark color, topped off with an uber-creamy head.
To create Guinness 0 the St James’s Gate brewers, start by brewing Guinness exactly as they always have, using the same natural ingredients; water, barley, hops, and yeast; before gently removing the alcohol through a cold filtration method. The cold filtration process allows the alcohol to be filtered out without presenting thermal stress to the beer, protecting the integrity of its taste and character. The brewers then blend and balance the flavors to ensure the distinctive flavor profile and taste characteristics of Guinness.
Temptation Times Two (Dallas, TX) – Lakewood Brewing is renowned for its popular Seduction Series, a bestselling line of Temptress Imperial Milk Stout variations that the brewery continues to expand upon. We love them all, but these two are exceptional!
French Quarter Temptress is flavored with bourbon barrel-aged coffee from Noble Coyote Coffee Roasters and a touch of chicory. Sin Mint Temptress has mint and a touch of graham cracker, like a liquid thin mint Girl Scout cookie only better and buzzier.
“French Quarter and Sin Mint are cult favorites among Lakewood fans,” said Wim Bens, founder and president of Lakewood Brewing, “it was time to set her free statewide.”
