Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Mocha Ten FIDY is coming in July

Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Mocha Ten FIDY

Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Mocha Ten FIDY will be available at both Colorado and North Carolina breweries in July. 

July 7th National Chocolate Day – a perfect day to release the latest iteration of the most recognizable imperial stouts in beer – Oskar Blues Ten FIDY. That motor oil resembling liquid has been aging in bourbon barrels with Cholaca, a pure liquid cacao.

The finishing flourish is a hefty dosing of Mexican bean cold brew from Hotbox Roasters.

The O.G. Imperial Stout got a one-way golden ticket to the inside of a barrel, where it went ass-over-elbows into a Cholaca chocolate river and then hotbox’d with Hotbox Roasters’ cold brew until it manifested as a smooth mocha mutha.

Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Mocha Ten FIDY will only be available at the Longmont, Colorado-based brewery and the Brevard, North Carolina brewery on July 7th. Wristbands will be handed out starting at 9:30 am (local time). 19.2-ounce cans are available by the can ($15), 12-count case ($180) with a 5 case limit.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Coffee. Chocolate. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 19.2oz Cans, Limited Draft. Brewery Only.
Debut: 7/7/18

Burial Skillet Donut Stout cans

Burial Skillet Donut Stout cans return at the start of June for the last time in 2018. 

Burial Skillet Donut Stout is an oatmeal stout and is brewed with molasses, milk sugar, and a 50/50 blend of Big Trouble and Hologram Counter Culture Coffee. This fan favorite is big on coffee with just a tiny hint of milk chocolate, finishing silky smooth. Breakfast beer? Dessert beer? That’s up to you. We’ve turned it into a pool beer when it comes back in the summer time.

Cold black iron. Never decaying, it is held to the fire to unearth impeccable flavor from whatever it holds. Never biased, it welcomes all ingredients. The Skillet is our most trusted and daring tool of culinary ingenuity. It is the perfect barrier-carrier for this rich, black ale. This breakfast stout is made from a blend of nine barley malts, a healthy scoop of oats, milk and molasses sugars, and our favorite blend of freshly roasted Counter Culture Coffee beans. Welcome the day with rich cocoa, smooth caramel, dark fruits, and an abundance of diverse coffee aroma unlike no other. Drink your breakfast.

21st Amendment Watermelon Funk is back for another summer

21st Amendment Watermelon Funk

Back for another fun summer in the sun is 21st Amendment Watermelon Funk. The beer was first canned in June of last year. 

The brewery’s Hell or High Watermelon Wheat making an appearance on shelves means warm weather is finally here. Prior to Watermelon Funk’s debut last year, the San Francisco based brewery had been “funking with greatness” in small batches. The now well-known Hell or High Watermelon Wheat beer was kettle soured Lactobacillus Planterum bacteria, resulting in the perfect complement to the slightly sweeter melon sibling.

…bright, tart, citrus notes, this beer finishes with a spicy farmhouse character from its French Saison yeast strain.

21st Amendment Watermelon Funk is brewed with 100% pure watermelon puree. Look for it nationally again in 12-ounce cans and draft for a limited time.

Style: American Sour/Wild Ale (w/ Watermelon)
Hops: Magnum
Malts: 2 Row, White Wheat

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: June 2017
Latest Return: Late May 2018

SweetWater Twisted Fish is a beautiful, hoppy, water saving pilsner

SweetWater Twisted Fish cans

SweetWater Twisted Fish is hitting shelves this week – brewed with and for Building Conservation Trust. The Trust is the Coastal Conservation Association’s National Habitat Program.

Water is the biggest component of every beer, and Atlanta based SweetWater Brewing Co. is dedicated to protecting the Earth’s precious liquid. In 2006, the brewery launched the “Save Our Water” initiative in conjunction with local Chattahoochee Riverkeeper. Every summer since, SweetWater has donated $100,000 dollars to clean water and natural habitat protection initiatives around the nation.

In honor of those hard-working freshwater protectors, SweetWater created Twisted Fish. This new pilsner is brewed with traditional Czech yeast, Hallertau hops, pilsner malts while breaking tradition Citra and Mandarina Bavaria hop varieties.

Lagers and pilsners are being seen more frequently on beer shelves, and for most this is a very welcomed sight. SweetWater’s new pilsner is built on a traditional recipe, with an American hoppy twist. The crisp and clean pilsner most certainly has a traditional start with each sip, finishing with a juicier, more citrus hop aroma and flavor. It’s almost a pilsner that finishes with a lingering “hazy IPA” aroma and flavor.

A little bit of the old world and a little bit of the new world make for a truly a unique, pilsner that does some good in the process.

SweetWater Twisted Fish is available in 16-ounce cans and draft across the brewery’s entire 22-state distribution while supplies last. According to the brewery, they have already sold through every keg they have in the taproom.

Style: Pilsner
Hops: Hallertau Mittelfruh, Citra, Mandarina Bavaria, Crystal
Malts:  Pilsner, Carapils, Vienna

Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: Late May 2018

5.3% ABV
