It’s Oskar Blues Death by Coconut season again

Oskar Blues Death By Coconut

Oskar Blues Death by Coconut has been canned and is headed to shelves again soon. At one point it was only sold at the taprooms in Colorado and North Carolina. Now it’s a national hit.

Oskar Blues Death By Coconut was first introduced during Colorado Craft Beer Week in March of 2014. The beer is a collaboration with Oskar Blue’s Jason Buehler, and Shamrock Brewing Co.’s Keith Hefley. The base beer is an Irish porter, aged on dried coconut and dark chocolate.

IF YOU CRAVE COCONUT BEER, IT’S HERE. We’re talking creamy coconut flavors, that finish with a touch of dark chocolate. Oskar Blues Death By Coconut tastes like an alcoholic Almond Joy candy bar. Everything from the smell to the taste is over the top, and we love every last drop we can get. As fall rolls in, so do the coconuts by Oskar. This is your annual heads up.

Oskar Blues Death By Coconut is available in 12-ounce cans, and draft nationally for a limited time.

Style: Porter (w/ Coconut, Dark Chocolate)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Latest Return: October 2017

6.5% ABV

Run the Jewels & Burial Stay G-O-L-D IPA returns again in October

Burial Beer S-T-A-Y-Gold IPA-can

Burial Stay G-O-L-D IPA inspired by the hip-hop group Run the Jewels returns again in October.

Asheville, North Carolina’s Burial Beer and Brooklyn’s Interboro Spirits & Ales teamed up earlier this year with hip-hop group Run the Jewels for a special hoppy release. Stay G-O-L-D IPA is the result.

Run the Jewels was founded in 2013 by rappers El-P and Killer Mike. Besides his hot rhymes, Killer Mike has a love of beer. A few years ago he flew to Chicago to do a special collaboration with Goose Island. (We actually visited him at his barber shop in Georgia.)

Burial Beer Stay G-O-L-D IPA is brewed with the help of Brooklyn, New York’s Interboro Spirits & Ale. Named for a track on the groups latest “Run the Jewels 3” release, Stay G-O-L-D is juicy India pale ale brewed with Citra and Mosaic hops.

Aromas of dank pineapple lemon honeydew. Tangy citrus piney flavors with clean bitter finish. – Interboro Spirits & Ales

Stay G-O-L-D IPA will be available at the brewery in Asheville, North Carolina again on October 11th at 5pm – just before Run the Jewels plays their sold out show downtown. Just like before, no distribution.

Style: IPA
Availability: 16oz Cans.
Debut: 4/7/17
Latest Release: 10/11/17

Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA (with with pineapple and oranges) goes national

Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA

One of California’s most well-known breweries may truly be embracing hazy India pale ales. At the end of the day, IPA is really what put them on the map. Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA debuts in cans nationally later this month.

An unfiltered IPA already intermittently exists in the brewery’s lineup, part of theEnjoy By IPA series. In the near future, Stone is releasing Nor’East Nod Double IPA, a hat tip to hazy, juicy “New England-style IPA”,

Now another unfiltered, juice-forward IPA is joining the brewery’s Stone’s lineup – Vengeful Spirit IPA.  This hazy IPA will be bringing the juice, in the form of pineapple and Mandarin oranges.

We’ve often been inspired to brew beers on a theme. In 2007 it was black IPAs. 2008 saw Belgian influenced IPAs, and more than once it’s been Triple IPAs. It’s been fun to dive deep, and you’ve ridden those waves right along with us. But like you, we’ve also crave new breaks to surf. Right now, it’s tropically-inspired IPA’s as represented both by this flavored ale, Stone Tangerine Express IPA and others we’ve got waiting in the wings…. With Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA we employ a bit of tropical mythology to pay homage to our ever present gargoyle. Since 1996 he’s had our back, and yours, by representing an aggressive intolerance for commoditized beer. He constantly inspires us to forge ahead with resolve-even with the omnipresent forces of forceful evil. Vengeful spirits can be awesome when they are on your side.

Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft in late September 2017.

Style: IPA (w/ Pineapples, Oranges)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: Late September 2017

Creature Comforts Table Beer, a culinary creation

Creature Comforts Table Beer

Creature Comforts Table Beer, formerly known as Epicurious, will return in October. 

This release starts with chefs, not brewers. The Creature Comforts team sat down with Ryan Smith, Executive Chef of Atlanta’s Staplehouse and Peter Dale, Executive Chef and Owner of Athens’ The National with the goal of creating a beer to pair with a wide variety of food.

Rather than looking at industry trends for what to brew next, we brewed a beer that best complements drinking with food and friends.

Creature Comforts Table Beer, a foodie’s beer, doesn’t fit any style guidelines according to the brewery. The beer is described as “earthy, floral and soft citrus hop character that is balanced by complex yeast flavors and subtle bitterness on the finish”.

The label artwork for this culinary-inspired can is thanks to the talent of Athens local Bryn Rouse, whose illustrations can be found on her Instagram feed.

Creature Comforts Table Beer will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft in October, 2017.

Style: Not specified
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Limited.
Debut: October, 2016
Latest Return: October, 2017

The Veil Brewing We Ded Mon, an 11% Citra monster

The Veil Brewing We Dead Mon 2

The Veil Brewing We Ded Mon is available in cans again this week, sporting a new minimalist label.

“Imperial IPA” is an understatement when talking about We Ded Mon. This beer is a bold 11% alcohol by volume. The Veil considers this beer a natural progression in their “Broz” series.

100% Citra hopped Triple IPA. Clocking in at 11%, this one is insane.

 

The Veil Brewing We Ded Mon will be available in 16-ounce cans when the brewery opens on September 20th.

Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Citra
Availability: 16oz Cans
Latest Return: 9/20/17
