It may be past Labor Day, but Richmond, Virginia is still getting a little tropical. The Veil Brewing Never Never Aloha Aloha debuts today.
If you aren’t familiar with The Veil’s beer naming nomenclature, when you see the double name, it’s going to be the “double” version of another similar beer. In this case, Never Aloha released in back in March.
The Veil Brewing Never Never Aloha Aloha is a double version of their Hawaiian Punch inspired gose, brewed with literally hundreds of gallons of pineapple, mango, passion fruit, blood orange, Guava, and cherry purée, plus Hawaiian red alaea sea salt.
Super tart and loaded with tropical notes on the aromatics and flavor profile.
The Veil Brewing Never Never Aloha Aloha will be available when the brewery opens on September 5th.

Monday Night Blood Orange Blind Pirate is getting a little branding update. The brewery
This rendition of Blind Pirate got its start in the Clip-On Series – a side project for Monday Night. The brewery takes a year round offering and throws it a curve ball. (Note: The series now includes none year-round beers too.)
The first release was Serrano Eye Patch Ale, a peppery spin on the year round English-style IPA. Not long after, Blind Pirate, their double IPA received a little blood orange treatment. As October winds down, you can get Blood Orange Blind Pirate in 12-ounce cans.
Pirates love citrus fruits almost as much as they love blood. If the phrase “you are what you eat” is true, then pirates are blood oranges. If the phrase “you are what you drink” is true, you’re about to be an incredibly delicious, juicy hop bomb of an IPA. We add bits of real blood orange to every beer, so you know it’s good.
Monday Night Blood Orange Blind Pirate is a draft, and 12-ounce can release.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round.
Release (Cans): October, 2016
Lonerider Blood Orange Hoppy Ki Yay, a citrusy spin on the brewery’s year-round India pale ale, debuts this summer.

Lonerider Blood Orange Hoppy Ki Yay will be available in 12 ounce can and draft in the near future.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Think tropical. Think about that impossibly red kids drink that stained everything and got the entire kindergarten class wired. The Veil Brewing Never Aloha, a new gose might come close.
This beer is all bout Hawaii. The Richmond, Virginia brewer used the Hawaiian sea salt, a necessary ingredient in gose as a part of the base beer. Not tropical enough for you? Next is hundreds of pounds of of passionfruit, pineapple, mango, blood orange, and cherry purée.
The finishing move: a touch of Hawaiian Punch drink mix. Yeah, they’ve gone there. Over the top trop(ical).
The Veil Brewing Never Aloha debuts today at the brewery in 16 ounce cans. Just don’t wear a white shirt when cracking the can.

Wicked Weed Hop Burglar is back for a second year, proving the fruited IPA style is very much on fire across the industry.
This hop-forward release features blood orange, and grapefruit zest, creating a very bright, citrusy beer.
All brewers have begged, borrowed, and burgled in the name of their craft. It takes humility, stubbornness, and some sleight of hand to turn raw ingredients into liquid alchemy. Hop Burglar India Pale Ale, brewed with blood orange grapefruit zest, and liberally dry-hopped, is just such a beer, the kind of bright, citrus-forward IPA that we would do anything to keep brewing. So mind your pockets – and your hops.
Wicked Weed Hop Burglar is a 12 ounce bottle offering, and draft.

21st Amendment Brew Free or Die Blood Orange IPA. The name pretty much speaks for itself.
Fruited India pale ales are very much on fire. Consumers have voted with their dollar- they love citrusy IPAs. That’s why Brew Free or Die Blood Orange IPA, a variant of their year-round beer, is now available in cans. The San Francisco, California based brewery has been developing this recipe for more than a year.
“Blood oranges were a totally new ingredient for us, and it was a lot of fun to play around with different approaches of where to add it into the process, and how much.” The result? A tangy, thirst-quenching, IPA with distinct flavors. “We want craft beer drinkers to understand that while this is a new and totally different beer, it has a great lineage, but when you crack open that can and get that first whiff of blood orange and hops… Oh man, it’s a thing of beauty.” – Shaun O’Sullivan, Brewmaster & Co-Founder
The base recipe is built off of the brewery’s’ year-round Brew Free or Die IPA with Citra, Mosaic, and Chinook hops, at 2.5 pounds more per barrel. Plus blood orange of course.
21st Amendment Brew Free or Die Blood Orange IPA will be a 12 ounce can and draft release, starting in March, 2017.
Distribution: CA, OR, WA, AK, ID, MN, OH, MA, NY, IL, NJ, DC, NV, DE, MD, FL, VT, RI, PA, NH, ME, VA, GA, SC, NC.
Debut: March, 2017
Funky Buddha Moro Moro Blood Orange IPA pours once again on February 19th.
This beer is all about the Citrus × sinensis fruit, aka blood orange. Specifically the ‘Moro’ cultivar. The blood red juice gives this India pale ale a different juice complexity, when compared to oranges.
More Moro Blood Orange IPA is back! We ceremoniously slaughtered heaps of crimson-fleshed “Moro” fruit to retrieve its delicious ichor, and then blended it with caramel malts and grapefruity hops to produce the sticky, citrus blast that we crave. Oranges: you’re on notice.
Funky Buddha Moro Moro Blood Orange IPA is seasonally available in 12 ounce bottles and draft.
7% ABV, 50 IBUs
