Looks like Europe is getting into “devastatingly fresh” IPAs like their drinking buddies, America.
Brewdog is releasing a new IPA called Brewdog Born to Die, inspired by Stone’s Enjoy By IPA series. Stone’s edition is meant to be bottled, shipped and consumed within a 40 day window.
Brewdog’s version is intended to be consumed as fast as you get your hands on it as well. But then again, isn’t that all IPAs?

Clown Shoes Breakfast Exorcism will be available starting the first week of May. The base beer is Undead Party Crasher (an imperial stout), aged in 16 rye barrels with Barrington Coffee Roasting Company espresso beans.
After barreling, the brewery blended Breakfast Exorcism with 7 gallons of concentrated cold brew coffee.
Clown Shoes Breakfast Exorcism will be available in 22oz bottles in Massachusetts, and on tap at Sunset Grille in Allston.
Abita Bourbon Street Baltic Porter is the latest release in the brewery’s Bourbon Street Series. The baltic porter is 100% aged in bourbon barrels. This beer, or a rendition of it, was once a part of the Abita “Select” Series.
This Baltic Porter is brewed with pale, caramel and roasted malts. It is fermented at cooler temperatures to accentuate the malt flavors, which gives the beer its dark color and smooth, sweet roasted flavor. After fermentation the beer is cold aged for months before bourbon barrel aging begins.
Abita Bourbon Street Baltic Porter is available for a limited time in 22oz bottles. This release follows Abita Bourbon Street Imperial Stout, and Abita Macchiato Espresso Milk Stout. Coming soon: Abita Bourbon Street Maple Pecan.
9.25% ABV, 20 IBUs

Stone Bourbon Barrel Aged Arrogant Bastard has been officially released in 6-packs starting today, April 27th.
Stone Arrogant Bastard, the brewery’s American strong ale, has spent months in Kentucky bourbon barrels prior to bottling.
As so infamously communicated via its verbose bottle label, Arrogant Bastard Ale is more than the average human being can ever hope to tackle, much less appreciate. But rather than dialing it back for the masses, we’ve pumped it up for the truly Worthy, sequestering Arrogant Bastard Ale in Kentucky bourbon barrels for several months to take it to places an even smaller percentage of the general population will be able to fathom.
Stone Bourbon Barrel Aged Arrogant Bastard is billed as “ultra-limited.” Look for 12oz bottles/6-packs across all of the brewery’s markets starting April 27th. Note, some off-premise accounts may break the six packs and sell by the bottle in order to ensure more customers a taste.
Odell Brewing (Fort Collins, CO) has released their Summer Montage Variety twelve pack for summer, 2015.
Each box has two year round brews, the current seasonal offering, and a limited release Roots Release beer. This round, Summer Montage contains IPA, Loose Leaf Session Ale, summer seasonal St. Lupulin, and Perle White IPA.
“We hand-picked our favorite summertime brews for this year’s Montage,” said Eric Smith Director of Sales and Marketing. “Loose Leaf is back in the mix, and thanks to the outpouring support, we also brought back Perle White IPA.”
The Odell Summer Montage Variety twelve pack will be available through September.
Martin House Brewing Company is on the cusp of releasing their second collaboration with rock band, The Toadies.
Last year, the brewery released Rubberneck Red (named for their 1994 album, Rubberneck). This weekend Bockslider, will be the followup collaboration.
“We had such an amazing experience working with The Toadies last year on Rubberneck Red. The partnership soon turned into a friendship and we are honored to do it again this year. We found inspiration for Bockslider when we saw Vaden drinking another Texas-made bock beer after last-years batches of Rubberneck Red were all sold-out.
Martin House Bockslider is a spring bock, an easy drinking, lightly hopped beer. Toadies and Martin House will host a Bockslider Beer Launch on Sunday April 26th at Martin House Brewery in Fort Worth. The Toadies will be on hand to play a full set outside the brewery.
Cans of Martin House Bockslider will on shelves in June, 2015
