Terrapin Rye Cubed Back in Monster Beer Tour Lineup

Terrapin Rye Cubed 2015

Terrapin Rye-Cubed, the bigger, badder, and boozier version of the brewery’s Rye Squared, is back on the Monster Beer Tour again.

This initial idea was to square the Rye Squared ingredients, that was until they thought about the math. Brewmaster and co-founder “Spike” tells Beer Street Journal:

We were trying to figure out how to cube the ingredients. Basically, we are doubling everything going into Rye Squared. It is big. Very big.

At 10.3% ABV, big is an understatement. Terrapin Rye Cubed will be “destroying palates from Athens to Tokyo” again in July, 2015. Available in 12oz bottles and draft for a limited time.

Style: American Strong Ale (w/ Rye)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft
Return: July, 2015

10.3% ABV

New Belgium Eric’s Ale Returns to Lips of Faith Series

New Belgium Eric's Ale

New Belgium Eric’s Ale makes a return to the brewery’s Lips of Faith Series lineup this month.

New Belgium Eric’s Ale is a sour ale “spiked” with peaches, named for the brewery’s Eric Salazar. To create New Belgium Eric’s Ale, Salazar blended threads of Felix, a sour base beer, and a golden strong ale. (Plus peaches, of course.)

Eric’s Ale pours a hazy golden-orange with subtle fuzzy ripe peach and vanilla aromas. It’s both sweet and tart and finishes warm and crisp. Woody notes are drawn out from the oak foeders to round out this middle-of-the-road sour. 

New Belgium Eric’s Ale is now available in 22 ounce bottles and draft, across the brewery’s distribution network.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Peaches, Oak Aged.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
Return: July, 2015

Duclaw 13 Degrees Hefeweizen returns July 1st, 2015. A German-style hefeweizen, brewed with Pilzen malt, and wheat.
