May is ON and American craft brewers are addressing things with exciting new beers you’re gonna want to have around.
Get Dusted (San Diego, CA) – Pure Project, a California Brewery with a passion for sustainability, seasonality, and the small details has transitioned one of the brewery’s “Murky IPAs” (that’s a new for us) to its year-round beer lineup which already includes which includes Tropical Mist (citrus blonde ale), Rain (pilsner), Pure West (West Coast IPA), and Rove Adventure Beer (light lager).
Developed using a combination of the aforementioned hop varietals, a four-grain blend, and Pure Project’s proprietary murky IPA yeast strain, Diamond Dust is a 6.7% ABV Hazy IPA that virtually shines with a heavy dose of Cashmere from Michigan and hand-selected Mosaic hops from the Pacific Northwest.
“Diamond Dust was one of our first murky brews, which is our term for hazy IPAs,” says co-founder and brewer, Winslow Sawyer. “It debuted in 2017 as a specialty release and we brought it back year and year again due to its popularity.”
Baja-Inspired (Escondido, CA) – Stone Brewing has a new summer release which was born in Southern California but vibrantly influenced by our neighbors to the south. Balanced, ultra-crisp and refreshing, Stone Buenaveza Salt & Lime Lager is 4.7% ABV Mexican Lager with just the right amount of lime and sea salt and a touch of sweet malt.
Haze Daze (Hershey, PA) – Tröegs Independent Brewing has released something interesting, a beer that combines the clean, crisp bitterness of a West Coast IPA with the softness of a hazy India Pale Ale. Envisioned as a companion to the brewery’s popular Perpetual IPA, Tröegs Perpetual Haze is a 7.5% ABV Hazy India Pale Ale smooth, pillowy mouthfeel thanks to London 3 yeast and a grain bill featuring a blend of malted barley and raw wheat.
Into The Strata-Sphere (Long Beach CA) – SoCal’s Beachwood Brewing has partnered with El Segundo Brewin on a new May limited release that’s out of this world.” A homage to the aerospace industry that defines their brewing ethos, Beachwood/El Segundo Eyes To The Sky IPA is a 7.1% ABV West Coast-Style India Pale Ale that’s hopped out of its mind on Simcoe, Strata, & Columbus varietals.
