Green Flash Brewing’s next offering in their Hop Odyssey Series is Cedar Plank. For this release, the brewery to 30th Street Pale Ale and aged it on cedar planks.
This limited edition beer features an incense cedar aroma and flavorful notes of Szechwan peppercorn with tannic hints of white grape.
Green Flash Cedar Plank hits the tap room September 30th, with 22oz bottles launching nationwide throughout October.
As a flipside to Stone Brewing Co.’s Enjoy By Series, the brewery has launched a new IPA you are supposed to cellar. Stone Enjoy After 10.31.15 is a IPA spiked with the wild yeast Brettanomyces, that will develop and carbonate the beer over time. You are buying a beer you’ll drink a year from the day you buy it.
…Ideally, you’ll want to cellar the beer up to-or beyond-the Enjoy After date to help it reach its full evolutionary potential. At that point, some facets of the Brett characteristics will have mellowed, while others will have become more profound; it all matures into a fascinating and delicious culmination. Individual results will vary…and that’s both the beauty and the intent behind this beer.
Stone Enjoy After 10.31.15 is available in limited 750ml bottles.
Style: American Wild Ale
Availability: 750ml Bottles. Limited
Distribution Area: TBA
7% ABV, 88 IBUs

Woodchuck Hard Cider (Middlebury, VT) is introducing a new rotating six pack, Out on a Limb.
The package art will remain the same through the year, but the liquid will change every couple of months. The first release is Woodchuck Chocolate Raspberry, a cider infused with cacao nibs and raspberries that offset the apple notes.
“As the leading craft cider in the country we take pride in pushing the boundaries of what is being done in the category and living ‘out on a limb’,” said Woodchuck Communications Manager, Nate Formalarie. “Truly unique ciders are crafted at Woodchuck’s cidery each day. All of these ciders are handcrafted with creative artistry. Out on a Limb represents those that we think the world is ready for.”
Woodchuck Out on a Limb six packs will have an estimated retail price of $10.99. Look for them to launch in October, 2014.
Over the course of Wild Heaven’s history, they have never released a lager. Founders Eric & Nick love the oktoberfest style, and decided now that they have a fancy new brewery in Avondale Estates, Georgia, it was time.
If you know brew master Eric Johnson at all, you know it wasn’t only going to be “just” a festbier. He added figs and madeira oak into the mix.
Wild Heaven Autumn Defense will be available on draft only at the end of September.
Great Raft Brewing (Shreveport, LA) will release they’re newest bottle on September 25th, At Arms Length.
At Arm’s Length is an India pale lager, or hoppy lager. A clash of German brewing, and American flavorful hop-genunity. (Yeah, I just made that a word.)
Throwing an absurd amount of American hops at a classic lager seemed only natural for us. Shhhhh, don’t tell the Germans… We like to keep them AT ARM’s LENGTH.
Great Raft At Arm’s Length will be available in 22oz bombers.
Style: India Pale Lager
Availability: 22oz Bombers, Draft.
