Cape May Brewing Is Crushin’ It (Cape May NJ) – Cape May Brewing is stepping up at a difficult time, with a now canned seasonal that’s become a huge fan fav over the years as a draft-only tasting room offering.Its new summer offering was originally conceived to mimic the experience of drinking an Orange Crush, a beach bar cocktail made with orange juice, vodka, orange liqueur, triple sec, and a splash of lemon-lime soda. And it does that and more.
Cape May Crushin’ It is an 8% ABC India Pale Ale /w Orange Juice that’s crafted with a smart blend of Citra, Mosaic, and Azacca hops which were explicitly selected to accentuate the tropical flavors from the copious amounts of fresh orange juice that is used.
“Crushin’ It is such a unique and delicious offering,” says Cape May Brewing Company Innovation Director Brian Hink. “It has a perfect balance point between a cocktail, beer, IPA, fruit beer, breakfast juice.” Available now for growler fills at the Cape May Brewtique and on April 8th in cans at retail outlets throughout New Jersey, with Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware.
Hop On! (Booneville, CA) – Anderson Valley Brewing has a heritage year-round offering that’s an on-point interpretation of West Coast-Style IPA. An almost perfect showcase of the bright citrusy aromas, bold grapefruit and pine-like flavors, Anderson Valley Hop Ottin’ IPA is a 7% ABV India Pale Ale with a solid malt backbone and a dry, herbal finish that never disappoints.
Sheltering Nice (Frederick, MD) – Flying Dog Brewery has an interesting new seasonal that melds the creamy mouthfeel of a New England IPA with the subtle edge of a Brut IPA, and showcases the artwork by Ralph Steadman of “Fear and Loathing” fame. Available now in cans (so perfect for sheltering-in-place), Flying Dog Pool Hopping Deck Beer is a hazy 5.4% ABV hazy Summer Ale with a big juicy hop presence, a moderate body and low bitterness.
