Boulevard Tell-Tale Tart Joining Year Round Lineup

Boulevard Tell-Tale Tart

Boulevard Tell-Tale Tart is joining the brewery’s year round lineup in June, 2015. If you’ve been following recent mentions surrounding the brewery’s ambitious lineup this year, you’ll find Tell-Tale to be a surprise.

Boulevard Tell-Tale Heart is a billed as a “slightly sour” ale, driven by lactic acid acidity.

…derives pleasant, refreshing lactic acidity from brewhouse souring, a process of lowering the pH during the brewing process. The brewhouse souring method results in a crisp, clean acidity that serves as a contrast to a soft, subtly sweet malt character contributed by our base pale malt and Munich malt.

Boulevard Tell-Tale Heart will be available in 12oz bottles, year-round.

Style: American Sour/Wild Ale
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Year-Round
Release: June, 2015

6.2% ABV

SweetWater The Pit & The Pendulum, a Corked & Cage Potential

SweetWater The Pit & Pendulum

SweetWater Brewing Company kicked off their new 750ml, corked and caged line with their 18th Anniversary offering. The Atlanta, Georgia based brewery recently purchased a cork & cage bottle filler from Brooklyn Brewery. SweetWater The Pit & The Pendulum takes aim at the big bottle series.

Over the weekend at SweetWater’s annual 420Fest, head brewer Nick Nock elaborated at bit on the sour/wild ale lineup currently in development. Addition to the brewery’s first sour beer (still sitting in the barrels), Nock mentioned a new beer with peaches.

SweetWater The Pit & The Pendulum bases as Belgian-style ale, peach puree (Georgia IS the peach state) and finished with Brettanomyces yeast.

The perfect balance of three distinct divergences. Allowed to initially flower with Belgian ale yeast, The Pit &The Pendulum was then incarcerated with Brett and freshly pureed peaches to intensify the trifecta of its persona. Enjoyable fresh, but also a good one for the cellar, as the Brett continues to contemplate its environment.

SweetWater The Pit & The Pendulum will be available in 750ml bottles. The brewery has not yet announced this offering.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Peaches)
Availability: 750ml Bottles, Corked & Caged.
Release: TBA

8.3% ABV

Dogfish Head American Beauty Art Updated for Dead’s 50th

Dogfish Head American Beauty 2015

Dogfish Head American Beauty, the brewery’s tribute, and inspired by, The Grateful Dead, is getting an artwork overhaul in honor of the band’s 50th anniversary.

The imperial pale ale combines American hops and an ingredient not seen in beer often – granola. Dead fan (and beer fan) Thomas Butler shared his favorite concert story that lead to the granola choice.

Inside this bottle. Your miracle ticket awaits. We called Americas Beauty, an imperial Pale Ale inspired by the Grateful Dead. The best way to capture 30 years, 100 albums, 1,500 shows? Let the loyal fans drive the recipe. Among thousands of suggestions, granola was top. It was the main course in millions of parking lot meals and is newsstand toasty complement to the all-American hops and barley. There was something different about a Dead show. Whether you saw one or 103, you felt it but you knew it wouldn’t last forever. If only you could have bottled it …

Dogfish Head American Beauty is slated to make a seasonal appearance again in May, 2015.

Style: IPA (w/ Granola)
Availability: 750 ml bottles
