Arches Brewing Triboulet

Arches Brewing Triboulet, an India pale lager debuts on Friday. 

Just seconds south of Atlanta, near the world’s busiest airport, lies Georgia’s only lager brewery. Their approach has turned some of their biggest skeptics into fans. Coming up this weekend is their latest creation, a lager/India pale ale hybrid known as Triboulet.

Arches Brewing Triboulet is the brewery’s first hop-forward lager, a blend of lager yeast and modern (IPA) hopping techniques. Per the brewery, the end result is “a balanced hoppy lager with juicy bitterness and a crisp finish. Flaked high-protein grains add a slight haze and smooth mouthfeel.”

Style: India Pale Lager
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Brewery-Only.

As expected of the style, Classic City Lager described as a “clean, crisp, and easy-drinking lager” by the brewery.

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.
