February is ON and American craft brewers are addressing things with exciting new beers you’re gonna want to have around.
A Heroic Hazy (Denver, CO) – Hot on the heels of Great Divide Brewing’s re-formulated Imperial IPA comes the first extension to the Hercules Imperial IPA family for 2023. Brewed with Amarillo, Cascade, Mandarina Bavaria and Chinook hops, Great Divide Hazy Hercules is a 9.5% ABV Imperial IPA with a juicer character, a toned down bitterness and a lighter mouthfeel. And even better it’s available in uber-gracious 19.2oz cans
“Based on the popularity of our year-round Hazy IPA we knew our brewing team would knock a New England-style version of Hercules Imperial IPA out of the park,” said Marketing Manager, Matt Sandy. “Don’t be surprised to see additional versions of Hercules Imperial IPA roll out in the near future.”
Thrilling (Long Beach, CA) – Beachwood Brewing has returned a popular release that began as a humble homebrew in brewmaster Julian Shrago’s garage before becoming the second IPA (Melrose was the first) Beachwood brewed at its downtown Long Beach location. A thrilling combination of Simcoe, Chinook, Warrior, and Centennial hops, Beachwood Thrillseeker IPA is a 7.1% ABV West Coast-Style India Pale Ale with a massive tropical citrus profile brewed to push your senses to the edge.
Sweet Water (Atlanta, GA) – Sweetwater Brewing has added something new to its year-round portfolio that couldn’t more traditional. Crafted with Crystal and Hallertau hops which add mild spicy floral notes, SweetWater Lager is a clean, crisp and dependable 4.5% ABV refresher that’s perfect for any drinking occasion that calls for something lighter.
SweetWater’s new Lager is a thirst-quenching beer with some added hops that keep this beer tasting crisp and refreshing,” says Ty Gilmore, president of U.S. Beer at Tilray Brands. ”SweetWater now has a beer for everyone, and these sure go down easy.”
