2020 is ON and American craft brewers are addressing the season with a variety of offerings that are fun and cold weather-ready.
Berry Good (Asheville, NC) – On Friday, January 18th, Twin Leaf Brewery will release their latest farm-to-keg inspired brew made with four different varieties of berries. Bill for the Berry is a tart and ultra-refreshing 5.4% ABV Kettle Sour crafted with blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and boysenberries…all grown on-site in Twin Leaf’s beer garden.
Wiley Roots For Its New IPA (Greeley, CO) – Wiley Roots Brewing has a new bi-coastal IPA designed for consumers searching for a modern IPA that is neither “a malt-forward West Coast IPA nor sweet like an East Coast IPA.” Dry hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo, and Cascade, Wiley IPA is a 6% ABV India Pale Ale that yakes its inspiration from both coasts to create something entirely new.
Cherry Oh! (Petaluma, CA) – Lagunitas Brewing has a new One Hitter Series release that we can’t wait to get ore hands on. Lagunitas Cherry Jane is a 5.5% ABV Sour Ale that was crafted with Turkish Delight cherries and fermented with Brettanomyces for that extra mouth puckering funk.
Athletic Drinking (Chico, CA) – Now owned by Sierra Nevada Brewing, the Sufferfest Beer Company was early to the healthier beer game. Founded in 2016 by Caitlin Landesberg, an athlete herself, Sufferfest offers a full-spectrum of craft beers, including a stout with only 135 calories. Rich in flavor but light in calories, Sufferfest Head Start is a 4.5% ABV Stout brewed with sustainably sourced beans from Equator Coffees and coconut water, that also contains naturally occurring vitamins and micronutrients like potassium-rich barley, sodium, iron, and fiber.
Liger This (Salisbury, MD) – Evolution Craft Brewing has a new Hybrid Series release that melds two of craft beer’s biggest trends, sour ales and the hazy IPA. Available now in cans as well as on draft, Evolution Liger Sour IPA is a 7.2% ABV India Pale Ale that’s tart yet soft.
