So many beers- So little time… Fall has arrived and with it the beers of the season – and we’ve a number of interesting new releases that you’ll want to chase down….Plus we’ve a new collaboration from Stone, Bale Breaker and 4 Hands Brewing that sounds pretty serious as well.
Hoppy To See You (Easton, PA) – Weyerbacher Brewing has just introduced a new IPA Series which will feature four special IPAs each year. The fall and winter releases will be imperials, while spring and summer releases will be single IPAs. The inaugural release in Weyerbacher’s new series is their shrewdly named Double IPA, a 9% Imperial brewed using Cascade, Simcoe, and Mosaic hops – and it should be available any day now.
Just Peachy (Escondido, CA) – Stone will soon be releasing a long-rumored collaboration they did with St Louis-based 4 Hands Brewing and Yakima, Washington’s Bale Breaker. Sorry Not Sorry is the beloved love child of this three-way union, an insanely hop-forward 9% Imperial IPA brewed with experimental hops and peaches. We don’t have an exact release date yet, but the fact that it’s in newbies means we think it will be rolling out soon.
Celebrating Unhoppiness (Paso Roble, CA) – Firestone Walker’s blended anniversary ale, which is coming out in November, will be a departure in a couple of ways. The past few years, Firestone Walker XIX Anniversary Ale has been comprised of as many as 9 different beers. This year’s vintage uses just 4 – Parabola, Stickee Monkee, Bravo, and Velvet Merkin. This blend was done very deliberately, eliminating the hoppier beers that have been a part of the blend in the past.
The Fall Pumpkin Parade Continues (Cleveland, OH) – This week’s addition to the ongoing pumpkin parade comes from Great Lakes Brewing. Great Lakes Pumpkin Ale is a 5.4% ABV cornucopia of earthy fall spices and roasted pumpkins. And it’s available now in 22oz bombers – so you can take it to bed with you.
Icelandic Crat Beer (Akureyri, Iceland) – The Einstök Brewery which is located just 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle has just released their winter seasonal. Einstök Icelandic Doppelbock is an award-winning 6.7% Strong Lager that was brewed pure glacial melt that flows down Iceland’s Hlíðarfjall Mountain and roaring through their ancient lava fields. Yes!
