This summer Orpheus is also adding Over and Over, a new pineapple sour to their year-round lineup.

A debut date hasn’t been set, but you can expect Orpheus Ascending IPA to be available in 12-ounce cans and draft.

Stone Brewing teams up with punk band NOFX, debuts festival

Stone Punk in Drublic

NOFX can easily considered one of the most successful independent bands of all time. Formed in 1983 by bassist Fat Mike and guitarist Eric Melvin, the band has never signed with a major label. That kind of independence is very familiar to California’s Stone Brewing. Perhaps that’s where Stone Punk in Drublic, a collaboration with NOFX rises from.

First, the name. Stone Punk in Drublic is named for NOFX’s 1994 release by the same name, considered the band’s most popular release, selling over a million copies.

This craft brewing meets punk music collaboration, is a hoppy lager perfect for “when you just need something to wash the noise down.” In conjunction with the release, Stone and NOFX have unveiled Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival in five U.S. cities, with the band and 100+ craft beers headlining the party. Other muscial acts include Bad Religion, Flogging Molly, Less than Jake, and Goldfinger.

This beer was brewed as a collaboration between Stone Brewing and Fat Mike. Who showed up and mostly just got in the way.

Stone Punk in Drublic will be available in 12-ounce cans only in the festival markets found below starting in September. For full festival details, visit www.PunkInDrublicFest.com.

Orpheus The 12th Labor, big on barrels returns in August

Orpheus 12th Labor

Orpheus The 12th Labor initially joined the Atlanta, Georgia brewery’s bottle lineup in the fall of 2015. It followed the brewery’s first first bottle, Wandering Blues (blueberry sour) that same month.

Orpheus The 12th Labor is an imperial stout fermented with Abbey yeast, aged in Woodford Reserve, and Woodford Double Oak Bourbon barrels. (As long as the same barrels were used for this upcoming release.

This is a big, big stout. The charred molasses, dark chocolate and smoke, plus a big, in-your-face bourbon barrel flavor. This imperial stout pours like motor oil and just begs for vanilla ice cream or creme brûlée as a side pairing. Hell, we love it with steak. Does drinking this in the heat not tempt you? Save it for the first chill of fall.

The 12th Labor is an overpowering 13% Imperial Stout with intensely layered flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, smoke, and dark fruit. You’ll be lulled to dreams of a distant past you can’t quite remember in a world teeming with noise and flesh. With each sip, The 12th Labor is a struggle at the edge of darkness.

Orpheus The 12th Labor will be available in 22 ounce bottles at the brewery on August 17th, 2017.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Candi Sugar. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Hops: Apollo
Malts: Two Row, Munich, Chocolate, Beechwood Smoked Malt, Special B, Roasted Barley, Black Patent

Carolina Bauernhaus plans to bottle their spicy ‘Walhallapeno”

Carolina Bauernhaus Walhallapeno

Anderson, South Carolina’s Carolina Bauernhaus is planning on bottling their spicy Walhallapeno beer. A collaboration with Frothy Beard Brewing.

If you are a fan of heat, you’ll find it here. Jalapeños bring the burn, rounded out by a touch of tartness by the base beer which is a gose. This beer has been frequently found in the taproom and has a loyal following. As we understand it, one of the founders of Frothy Beard hails from Wahalla, South Carolina. Thus, the derivation of the Walhallapeno name.

Salty! Sour! Spicy! Walhallapeno is our delightfully refreshing collaboration with our friend at Frothy Beard Brewing in Charleston, SC. The bright spicy flavor of locally grown jalapeño peppers are a delicious complement to our salty and sour Gose. This rustic refined flavored ale was oak fermented with our house blend of native yeast and soured with locally sourced lactobacillus from SouthYeast Labs.

Carolina Bauernhaus Walhallapeno is slated for 22 ounce bottles, and already available on draft.

Style: Gose (w/ Jalapeno Peppers)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut (Bottles): TBA

4.5% ABV
