Spring has sprung and American craft brewers are addressing things with exciting new beers you’re gonna want to have around.
Terpene-Infused (Oceanside, CA) -Belching Beaver Brewery has announced the company’s first new core beer that uses terpenes, the aromatic compounds naturally found in citrus fruits, pine trees, hops, and cannabis. Brewed with Simcoe, Mosaic, Strata, and Citra hops and terpenes that in this case were not derived from cannabis, Belching Beaver Tropical Terps IPA is a 6.6% ABV India Pale Ale that was first released at its 10th anniversary celebration in October 2022.
“We received so many compliments last year from the initial batch of Brewmaster Troy Smith’s new brand that we decided to make it a part of our core,” said Co-Founder and CEO Tom Vogel. “Troy and his team are always pushing the boundaries of beer. He not only designed the beer, but the label as well. This really is a game changer. I am sure we will see more terpene-focused beers throughout the country in the years ahead.”
New Anderson Valley Beer Gives Back (Boonville, CA) -Established 35 years ago, surrounded by the towering redwoods that dominate Mendocino County’s coastal ecosystem, Anderson Valley Brewing is one of California’s longest-running independent breweries and a leader in sustainable and environmentally-friendly brewing.
In addition to being the world’s first solar-powered brewery Anderson Valley sources all water used in the brewing process from the brewery’s 30-acre property. The brewery also operates its own water treatment system which allows it to process and return 100% of its waste water back to the brewery property.
And now they’ve partnered with Surfrider Foundation on a brand new release that the brewery describes as “a delicious way to safeguard the world’s ocean, waves and beaches.” Light-bodied, yet full-flavored, Anderson Valley Coastal Ale is a 4.5% ABV refresher with 5% of its profits helping to support Surfrider’s mission.
A Humdinger (Croydon, PA) – Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company is an award-winning craft brewery and taproom located just north of Philadelphia in Bucks County. And they’ve just released something special that’s primed for spring. Available at the brewery’s taprooms with distribution in PA & NJ, Neshaminy Creek Humdinger Farmhouse Ale is a 5.5% ABV Belgian-Style Saison brimming fruity yeast esters, stone fruit tea, lemon peel and wildflower notes.
