SweetWater Tropical Lover rolls off the can in Atlanta as a new seasonal in April.
Nick Burgoyne, brewer at SweetWater has been developing this recipe for some time now. He created a low alcohol by volume Berliner Weisse; adding mango, guava, and passionfruit to the beer. The result was something quite tropical and very refreshing.
“When we put test batches on tap at the Woodlands and in our main taproom, people kept commenting on how drinkable and refreshing it was; they loved the tropical flavors. I imagine Tropical Lover will be a hit with folks hanging out on the water all summer, kicking back with a few daytime drinks.” – Nick B.
SweetWater Tropical Lover will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft starting April 7th. Look for a launch party at the brewery on April 19th.
Boulevard Hibiscus Gose will debut in cans in April.
This floral gose started as a Boulevard holiday beer years ago, bottled briefly in the brewery’s Backroads Series in 2014. Boulevard Hibiscus Gose is created by adding sea salt during the boiling process, along with coriander. During the whirlpool process, Boulevard infuses the wort with dried hibiscus flowers.
A slightly salty aroma with a touch of coriander and citrus/cherry notes wafts from the beer. The leading flavor is a lemony tartness obtained from the brewhouse souring process with subtle salt and coriander notes. Hibiscus Gose finishes crisp and dry with a slightly lingering sourness that’s tempered by the sea salt, coriander, and hibiscus flowers.
Boulevard Hibiscus Gose debuts in the brewery’s home city of Kansas City, Missouri on April 2nd. Expect 12-ounce cans and draft in the brewery’s other regions shortly after launch.

New Realm Euphonia Pilsner is being canned for the first time this month.
In the two short months that Atlanta’s New Realm Brewing has been opened, two beers have become headliners – Hoplandia IPA and Euphonia Pilsner. While one has brewmaster Mitch Steele’s hoppy west coast fingerprints all over it, the pilsner leans a bit more traditional.
Steele uses Hersbrucker, Huell Melon, Saphir and Sterling hops on a German malt “blackboard”. The finished beer is the beautifully smooth, dangerously drinkable, delightfully crisp pilsners that is hard to put down. (Ed. note: we haven’t left the brewery drinking less than at least four each time.)
“… Euphonia Pilsner, our refreshing, easy sipping pils has been a favorite amongst our brewers and guests at our bar.” Mitch Steele, Co-Founder & Brewmaster
Today the brewery is hard at work canning Euphonia PIlsner for the first time. 12-ounce cans of the crisp pilsner will be available at the brewery first, with distribution to follow in April 2018.
Hops: Huell Melon, Saphir, Sterling
Malts: German Pilsner
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round

Wild Heaven Laissez Fraise will emerge from the brewery’s “Wild Wild Heaven” series this weekend.
Strawberries and mint highlight this new wild ale blend.
For Lassiez Fraise, we selected a handful of barrels that received fresh strawberries and a smaller number which had received fresh mint for blending. The result is an unexpected mingling of subtle, beautiful flavors, unlike anything we’ve ever made.
Wild Heaven Laissez Fraise will be available in 500-milliliter bottles. Limited to a run of 300.

Cosmik Debris has a brilliant aroma from the hop profile that will lessen with age. This beer should be kept cold and consumed as fresh as possible. – Head Brewer David Stein. “
