Great Divide Hoss makes a seasonal return

Great Divide Hoss Can 2017

Great Divide Hoss Oktoberfest is back in the Denver, Colorado brewery’s again this month. This is the second time this beer has been canned.

It may seem a little early to be thinking Oktoberfest beers, but lagers really are perfect year round. Great Divide Hoss is among one of Beer Street Journal’s favorite festbier styles. Fans of a malty lager will very much enjoy this plaid laden beverage.

HOSS is based on the Märzen lagers of Germany. Rich, layered malt notes, with hints of cherry and dark fruits, dominate, while the unique addition of rye imparts a slightly earthy, spicy character. Hoss finishes crisp and dry, and its brilliant red-orange color is a toast to the sunsets that make the perfect backdrop for this beer.

Great Divide Hoss is a seasonal release on draft, 12-ounce bottles, and 12-ounce cans.

Style: Oktoberfest
Availability: 12oz Cans, 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Latest Return: August 2017

6.2% ABV

Think Mounds candy bar: The Veil Brewing Coconut Hornswoggler

The Veil Brewing Coconut Hornswoggler teaser

The Veil Brewing Coconut Hornswoggler returns to the Richmond, Virginia based brewery’s lineup again on August 8th.

This foray into dessert beer started with the base creation Hornswoggler, a silky, chocolate milk stout. Since then, releases have gotten more and more decadent. French Vanilla, Oreo Cookie, and Bourbon Pecan Peanut Butter Oreos, even one with candy bars have graced the series. August 8th marks the return of  a more tropical (think Mounds candy bar) creation – The Veil Brewing Coconut Hornswoggler.

The base chocolate milk stout has been condition on hundreds of pounds of coconut. The brewery doesn’t half-ass these addtions. When they say coconut, they mean it. 

Coconut Hornswoggler is our house 7% robust chocolate milk stout Hornswoggler conditioned on hundreds and hundreds of pounds of coconut. 😬 Straight up insane! Tastes/smells like a liquid Mounds bar.

The Veil Brewing Coconut Hornswoggler will be available in 16 ounce cans when the brewery opens on August 8th.

Style: Milk Stout (w/ Chocolate. Coconut. Lactose.)
Availability: 16oz Cans. Limited Release

Destihl Synchopathic Apricot joins the brewery’s Wild Sour Series

Destihl Synchopathic Apricot

Destihl Synchopathic Apricot is the latest release the brewery’s canned Wild Sour Series.

The Wild Sour Series is home to Here Gose Nothing, Flanders Red, Blueberry Gose, and more. This third release our of four seasonal Wild Sour offerings ties in a big apricot flavor with the citrus dry-hopping of a pale ale. The kettle soured ale uses Central Illinois micro flora to create a unique “locally grown” tartness.

“…The feedback last year for the draft-only release was phenomenal.  With that feedback along with our own love of this beer, the decision to put Synchopathic Apricot in cans this year was an easy one, and we are expecting this new canned release to do extremely well and to keep moving the WiLD SOUR SERIES onward and upward in the sour beer market.” – Matt Potts, Destihl brewmaster

Branding Update: Monday Night Blood Orange Blind Pirate

Monday NIght Blind Pirate can

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.

Style: Imperial IPA (w/ Blood Orange)
Hops: Columbus, Cascade, Magnum
Malts: 2 Row, Wheat, Caramel

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round.
Release (Cans): October, 2016
