Burial Beer & Hoof Hearted Brewing create ‘Two Dollars’ Pale Ale

Burial Beer Two Dollars American Pale Ale

Asheville, North Carolina’s Burial Beer and Marengo, Ohio’s Hoof Hearted Brewing have teamed up on a new pale ale.

This beer starts with the love of 80’s movies. If you don’t believe it, check out the Sloth and Burt Reynolds mural on the side of the Burial’s taproom. This beer starts with the love of the John Cusack classic, Better Off Dead. “Johnny” the menacing paperboy in the movie is constantly yelling “I want my two dollars” for the papers.

In that same vein, the brewing duo have created a beer for the taproom that is just $2 dollars.

‘Two Dollars’ Pale Ale is brewed with coriander and lime, plus a touch of lupulin powder (basically concentrated hops) and a bold yeast. The beer is big on flavor, not on price.

Truly a sight to behold: a man beaten. The once great champ, now, a study in moppishness. Hard enough on his luck to run form a blood-thirsty barrel of killer paperboys. But smart enough to save $2 for this can of delightful pale ale, thriftily hashed together with lupulin powder, citrus peel, and tale from our childhood that is just a beloved by these Ohio boys.

Burial Beer Two Dollars Pale Ale will be available in 12 ounce cans and draft at the brewery on Thursday, April 20th.

Style: Pale Ale (w/ Coriander. LimeLupulin Powder.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft
Debut: 4/20/17

Burial Stay G-o-l-d IPA

This Friday a new musical collaboration arises. Asheville, North Carolina’s Burial Beer and Brooklyn’s Interboro Spirits & Ales are teaming up wth hiphop group Run the Jewels for a special hoppy release. Stay G-O-L-D IPA debuts in Asheville on Friday.

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. Interboro released their cans back in March.

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

Stay G-O-L-D will be available at Burial Beer in Asheville, North Carolina starting Friday, April 7th, at 2 pm. The brewery plans on bumping Run the Jewels tunes all day. No distribution.

The Bruery & Funky Buddha team up on Guava Libre

The Bruery Guava Libre

The Bruery Guava Libre, a collaboration with Florida’s Funky Buddha, is coming later this year.

If you need to know just one thing about Funky Buddha, it would have to known their love of food inspired beers. Maple Bacon Coffee Porter, Moro Moro Blood Orange IPA, and Sweet Potato Casserole are prime examples. Teaming up with California based The Bruery, the duo has another food-inspired beer headed your way in the near future.

The Bruery Guava Libre is based on the Cuban dessert pastelitos de guayaba. The tempting dessert incorporates guava paste, cream cheese, powdered sugar and puff pastries.

Echoing the pastry, the breweries created an imperial cream ale brewed with guava, turned dessert-like thanks to milk sugar and vanilla beans.

This sensory getaway transports you to a corner bodega with our friends at Funky Buddha in South Florida to recreate the flavors you’d find in a “pastelito de guayaba.” Championing the big, bold flavors that both our breweries are known for, we brewed an imperial cream ale, adding lactose and vanilla to impart sweet, custard-like ribbons, and guava for filling its conceptual authenticity. It’s a collaboration that’s equal parts inspiration and admiration.

The Bruery Guava Libre will be available in 750 milliliter bottles around the same time fall seasonal Autumn Maple returns.

Style: Cream Ale (w/ Lactose. Guava. Vanilla Beans.)
Availability: 750ml Bottles
Debut: Fall, 2017 (Estimated)

Scofflaw GOAT IPA makes good on Super Bowl Bet

Scofflaw GOAT IPA

Scofflaw GOAT IPA debuts this Thursday, settling a bet from Atlanta’s ill-fated Super Bowl.

We all know what happened. Atlanta had a massive lead in this year’s Super Bowl, only to see it disappear by the end of the game. The city’s breweries made a few Super Bowl bets, most notably SweetWater with Boston Beer Company, and Scofflaw with Shipyard Brewing. SweetWater has already paid up. Now it’s Scofflaw’s turn.

Scofflaw GOAT IPA is a “New England Style” IPA, chosen because of where the Patriots call home. Scofflaw’s brewmaster Travis Herman worked with Shipyard’s head brew Joe Rank on the recipe.

The new IPA honors the “Greatest Of All Time” New England Patriots while celebrating the friendly collaboration among these two craft brewers. Deep with never-quit character, G.O.A.T. is an unfiltered IPA with a murky first impression that leads into winning flavors and aromas and a miraculous come-from-behind finish.

Scofflaw GOAT IPA will be available on tap at the Atlanta brewery starting Thursday, March 30th. Scofflaw’s Herman sums up his thoughts on the beer: For spring days when the Atlanta weather is cool,  we’ll use lower pressure in our kegs so Patriots fans can hold on to their glass.” 

G.O.A.T. indeed.

Style: IPA
Hops: Simcoe, Amarillo, Mosaic

Availability: Draft only, limited.
Debut: 3/30/17

Sierra Nevada & Karl Strauss “NXS” Red IPA debuts, California only

Sierra Nevada Karl Strauss NXS 2017

Late in 2015 the brewing world saw Sierra Nevada and Stone Brewing team up in a hoppy collaboration known as NXS.  The all California creation was split down the middle, with 50% of the IPA batch aged in gin barrels, and 50% in rye whiskey barrels. NXS rises once again this week, this time, with another California based brewery, Karl Strauss.

RELATED: Beer Collaborations

One thing is certain, hops definitely unite brewers. Which ones chosen, and how you brew with them is just one of the things setting you apart. Sierra Nevada and Karl Strauss collective have 65 years of craft brewing under their belt. It is the experience that will bring you what the duo calls “unabashedly hoppy”, an IPA with tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors. Sierra Nevada touts this beer as a “red IPA” and by the looks of it, the moniker fits.

Craft beer was born in California and it was here that brewers created the “west coast” style of hop forward brewing. California is a big state, and NorCal and SoCal often have different approaches to beer – yet remain united through hops.

Sierra Nevada Karl Strauss NXS will be available in 22 ounce bottles, limited to California.

Style: IPA
Availability: 22oz Bottles
Debut: Mid-March, 2017
