With Labor Day now behind us, summer will soon be a memory and American craft brewers are addressing the changing season with interesting new beer offerings you’re gonna want to have around.
Better Red Than Dead (Lewiston, ME) – Baxter Brewing is marking summer’s passing with the return of a popular seasonal. Brewed with Columbus, Galaxy and Mosaic hops that are tethered to rich malt backbone, Baxter Firestack is a 6.3% ABV Red IPA with ruby-red hue and a caramel-sweet finish.
Hops To It! (Turlock, CA) – Dust Bowl Brewing Co. has a new addition to its year-round offerings that we can’t wait to get our hands on. Available in 6 pack/12oz cans as well as on draft, Dustbowl Hops Double IPA is an approachable 8.3% ABV India Pale Ale with a well-balanced bitterness and subtle finish.
Want S’more? (Weymouth, MA) – Barrel House Z is thinking autumn with a new seasonal that was inspired by the gooey graham cracker, marshmallow and chocolate, campfire treat. Mocha dark and creamy rich, Campfire King is an 8% ABV S’more-Inspired Imperial Porter with decadent chocolate, graham cracker, and vanilla marshmallow crème notes and a lactose-fueled silky richness.
Planted (Atlanta, GA) – SweetWater Brewing has a Catch and Release Series seasonal crafted with plant-based ingredients that deliver everything you want in a milk stout in a non-dairy form. Authentic tasting yet perfect for vegans, SweetWater Almond Milk Stout is a smooth, dark %.4% ABV non-dairy Milk Stout with rich roasted coffee, milk and dark chocolate aromatics and a subtle almond sweetness.
“Using real almonds and all-natural ingredients, we integrated the sweetness brought by the dark chocolate aromas and almond flavoring you find in a typical stout,” said SweetWater Brewmaster Mark Medlin, “but offset by the non-dairy ingredients and drinkability. “
