New Realm Hoplandia IPA will soon hit distro

New Realm Hoplandia IPA

New Realm Hoplandia IPA won’t be a draft-only offering much longer. The brewery is canning the flagship offering this month.

Atlanta, Georgia based New Realm Brewing opened their doors on the city’s beltline in January. In a few short weeks, Hoplandia IPA is assuming the role of “flagship status” already.

TAKE A LOOK INSIDE NEW REALM BREWING

Mitch Steele hails from the hoppy American West Coast, making that influence undeniable in every sip. Warrior, Simcoe, and Centennial hops blossom with every sip. Think citrus, peaches, and orange zest. No, don’t ask if it’s hazy. Ironically, Steele denies any “coast” claiming with Hoplandia:

Hoplandia is no ordinary IPA. It’s not confined to the style of the West Coast, East Coast or whatever coast. This lush IPA is something sublimely different and now in cans, more Atlantans will be able to experience Hoplandia for themselves.

All coasts aside, New Realm Hoplandia IPA, as well as Euphonia PIlsner, will soon be available in 12-ounce cans at the brewery, as well as Georgia distribution as we head into April.

Style: IPA
Hops: Centennial, Warrior, Simone
Malts: Pale, Pilsner, Crystal

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round
Debut (Cans): March 2018

7.3% ABV, 75 IBUs

New Year-Round Release: Saint Arnold Orange Show

Saint Arnold Orange Show

Saint Arnold Orange Show has been added to the Houston, Texas-based brewery’s year-round lineup this month.

The base beer is a blonde ale, brewed with fresh blood oranges. 2,200 pounds of puree to be exact. That’s around a half a pound of puree per gallon.

A strong citrus aroma comes from the purée added during fermentation and the Centennial and Citra hops. The combination of sweet and slightly tart flavors make it a balanced, light bodied beer.

Saint Arnold Orange Show is named for a folk art monument in Houston’s East End Neighborhood. The 3,000 square foot structure was designed by the late Jefferson Davis McKissack, a Houston postal worker.

Orange Show is available in 12-ounce cans and draft in Texas and Louisana, year-round starting in March 2018.

Style: Blonde Ale (w/ Blood Oranges.)
Hops: Centennial, Citra
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round
Distribution: TX, LA

Debut: March 2018

5.3% ABV

Terrapin Chopsecutioner, aged on baseball bats leads off in cans this season

Terrapin Chopsecutioner can

Terrapin Chopsecutioner was born at the brewery’s baseball brewhouse Suntrust Park, home of the Atlanta Braves, last season. This month, the beer steps up to the plate in cans for the first time.

Maybe drinking 7.3% ABV IPA for 9 innings of baseball in a hot city like Atlanta isn’t recommended. Terrapin Chopsecutioner is here to help. The Athens, Georgia based brewery has a new 5 barrel pilot system at Suntrust Park, the new home of the Atlanta Braves and is the birthplace of this unique beer.

RELATED: First Look: Terrapin ATL BrewLab

Attendees to Suntrust Park this summer will see quite a few unique recipes coming out of the new ATL BrewLab, starring with Chopsecutioner, which is actually aged on Mizuno wood bat chips. The hop lineup is the same as the bigger Hopsecutioner sibling, but with a lighter body, lower ABV, and a touch of wood flavor from the bats.

Terrapin Chopsecutioner is available on draft year-round at Suntrust Park. New 16-ounce cans are hitting shelves around Georgia, March until June.

Style: IPA (Aged on Baseball Bats)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: April 2017
Can Debut: March 2018

5% ABV, 60 IBUs

New England IPA: Hi-Wire Hazy & Juicy & Hoppy & Fresh

Hi-Wire Hazy & Juicy & Hoppy & Fresh

The New England style IPA will be alive and well in 2018. Hi-Wire Hazy & Juicy & Hoppy & Fresh is on the way.

The beer is so much like the “Helvetica List” t-shirts. You’ve seen them. They are usually white on black, with a list of four related cultural references and a lot of ampersands. (Ex. Me & You & Yo Momma & Yo Cousin Too, from OutKast.).

Asheville’s Hi-Wire already has some pretty sleek can designs – like Pink Drink & 10W-40. Whether or not the brewery was going for the “Helvetica List” idea, what they have done really makes for great new can design. Hi-Wire Hazy & Juicy & Hoppy & Fresh has debuted in Asheville, North Carolina.

The name describes this beer in full – hazy, juicy, and hoppy. Fresh is how you should be drinking it.

Hi-Wire Hazy & Juicy & Hoppy & Fresh will be a 16-ounce can release.

Style: IPA
Availability: 16oz Cans
Debut: March 2018

7.5% ABV

Like drinking an Arnold Palmer. Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse returns

Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse can

Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse is as close to a beer-inspired Arnold Palmer drink as we’ve ever tried. This month, the beer returns for a second season.

The brewing team in Athens, Georgia has a penchant for lower alcohol by volume beers as well as kettle souring. A blend of those two created the wildly popular Watermelon Gose.

Sweet tea and golf are southern staples; making for easy inspiration for Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse. The tea is courtesy of Maya Tea in Tucson, Arizona.

Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse is available in 12-ounce cans and draft again starting in March 2018.

Style: Berliner Weisse (w/ Tea, Lemon)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: March 2017
Latest Return: March 2018

4% ABV

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose finds bottles for the 1st time

Boulevard Tequila Lime Gose bottles

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose was a hit last year on draft. In 2018 the brewery has bottled the seasonal offering.

In mid-2016, Kansas City-based Boulevard Brewing acquired freshly emptied tequila barrels. After a style debate on what would go into the wood the brewery settled on a German-style gose.

Aged with fresh limes, Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose smells of oak and vanilla. According to Boulevard expect:

…a pleasant, refreshing lactic acidity and hints of coriander and sea salt, citrus flavors mingle with malt sweetness to temper the acidity and touch of heat provided by tequila barrel-aging.

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose is available in 12-ounce bottles and draft across select brewery markets in March 2018.

Style: Gose (w/ Limes. Barrel Aged. Tequila.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Seasonal Release.
Debut: May 2017
Bottle Release: March 2018

5.9% ABV, 15 IBUs
