Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter to debut in cans for the first time

Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter cans

Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter, the bigger, boozier version of the brewery’s pale ale, debuts in cans for the first time in March.

As the name suggests, Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter, is Daisy Cutter with no boundaries. It carries all the big citrus and grass notes of the year-round pale ale, with an amplified malt presence.

Brewed quarterly, Double Daisy Cutter is a Chicago favorite. For the first time, 16 ounce cans debut, along side ‘Tuna‘ on March 3rd.

A monster version of the original Daisy Cutter Pale Ale. A heftier grain bill amps up the weight and double dry hopping insures there’s enough grit to recede your gums.

Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter was first brewed in 2010. Since then, it appears quarterly throughout the year. Available in 4-packs for $15.99 each.

Style: Imperial IPA
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.
Distribution: IL, WI, Philadelphia, NYC
Debut (Cans): 3/3/17

8.5% ABV

The borders of hell meet in Martin House Acheron

Martin House Acheron

Martin House Acheron, the Fort Worth, Texas based brewery’s barrel-aged imperial stout, is now available in cans.

Does this beer look and sound a little death metal to you? Acheron in Ancient Greek means “River of Woe”, one of the rivers of Hades in Homer’s The Odyssey. In Dante’s Inferno, the Acheron river forms the border of Hell. Like we said… metal.

Martin House Acheron dark, burly, and boozy. The 12% alcohol by volume imperial stout is unblended, aged six months in whiskey barrels. The brewery finished it with a touch of brown sugar, balancing the bitterness and increasing the ABV.

…this 12% abv stout will satiate your sinuous desires for something bold, burly, boozy, and barbarous.

Martin House Acheron is available in 12 ounce cans, in 2-packs. Think of it as two extra ounces when compared to the traditional 22 ounce bomber.

Style: Imperial Stout (Brown Sugar. Barrel Aged. Whiskey.)
Hops: Columbus
Availability: 12oz Cans
Debut: Mid-February, 2017

12% ABV

“When we first talked about crafting Belgian beers for our portfolio, open fermentation was really important to us,” explains Walt Dickinson, owner and Head Blender, “We wanted to craft beers that felt like the Old World, but with a New World perspective. Lunatic Blonde has become the base that we build everything else off of because it’s the most straightforward beer and there’s nothing to hide behind. It’s all about yeast character and fermentation.”

Style: Belgian-style Blonde Ale
Availability: 11.2oz Bottles, Draft. Year-round.
