New Holland Lost Dune is returning to the Michigan based brewery’s line again for the summer.
Designed for warm weather drinking, New Holland Lost Dune is brewed with local blueberries and coriander, plus a heavy dose of Mosaic hops.
“At New Holland, it’s no secret that we’re inspired by the seasonality of ingredients and flavors. Plus, located on Lake Michigan, summer is a natural inspiration. Lost Dune captures the taste of summer with its refreshing and aromatic body.” – Brett VanderKamp, Co-Founder & President.
For the beer’s official launch on May 18th aka “Dune Day”, New Holland has partnered with the Land Conservancy of West Michigan to support the non-profit organization’s mission to permanently protect and care for Michigan’s natural beauty. Participating locations will be donating a portion of sales from each pint of Lost Dune sold on Dune Day to the Land Conservancy of West Michigan.
New Holland Lost Dune will be available seasonally across the brewery’s entire network in 12-ounce cans and draft.
Terrapin Watermelon Gose is back on shelves once again, as temperatures are starting to break 90 degrees for the first time.
Terrapin Watermelon Gose is the brewery’s first packaged gose style, a tart beer traditionally brewed with sea salt and coriander. Now, unless you haven’t paid a single lick of attention to the American craft beer scene at all in the past few years, the U.S. loves breaking tradition. Throwing watermelon into the beer is normal these days.
The base gose is aged on fresh watermelon juice, which is a nice offset to the tartness of the base beer. So much summer is packed into this 12 ounce can.
Terrapin Watermelon Gose is available across the brewery’s entire footprint again starting in May 2018.

Boulevard Hibiscus Gose will debut in cans in April.
This floral gose started as a Boulevard holiday beer years ago, bottled briefly in the brewery’s Backroads Series in 2014. Boulevard Hibiscus Gose is created by adding sea salt during the boiling process, along with coriander. During the whirlpool process, Boulevard infuses the wort with dried hibiscus flowers.
A slightly salty aroma with a touch of coriander and citrus/cherry notes wafts from the beer. The leading flavor is a lemony tartness obtained from the brewhouse souring process with subtle salt and coriander notes. Hibiscus Gose finishes crisp and dry with a slightly lingering sourness that’s tempered by the sea salt, coriander, and hibiscus flowers.
Boulevard Hibiscus Gose debuts in the brewery’s home city of Kansas City, Missouri on April 2nd. Expect 12-ounce cans and draft in the brewery’s other regions shortly after launch.

We honestly aren’t sure what we drink more of around the Beer Street Journal office – beer or margaritas. This release makes choosing between the two a little bit easier. Second Self Margarita in Gose is back for a second season.
Let’s address the most badass fact about this beer, the Top Gun theme. Second Self now has a “Top Gun Series” of beers, that started with Maverick & Gose last year. That beer is back in the skies (shelves) once again with an updated recipe. Since you can’t pull off an inverted flying maneuver without a partner, Second Self Margarita in Gose, aka “MIG” is here.
MIG mimics the taste of a margarita thanks to fresh orange lime juice and Florida orange peel. Those flavors, plus a touch of salt makes this gose margarita/ beer hybrid. Shots of tequila might make the perfect compliment. The choice is yours.
Second Self Margarita in Gose is available in Georgia and Alabama again in March 2018.

The Bruery 10 Lords a Leaping will be the 10th release in the ’12 Days of Christmas’ Series.
A decade ago, Placentia, California based The Bruery debuted the first in a line of 12 Beers brewed in honor of nearly 250-year-old “Twelve Days of Christmas” song. The first beer should be obvious – A Partridge in a Pear Tree, a Belgian strong dark brewed with spices.
Each year, the style has varied, from Two Turtle Doves to this year’s coming release – The Bruery 10 Lords a Leaping.
In lieu of 10 Lords, the brewery has 10 spices “leaping” into this seasonal release. The lineup includes coriander, orange peel, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, mace, anise, dried apples, and cloves.
Wassail is known for warmth and spices. The tenth verse of our Twelve Beers of Christmas™ saga goes leaps and bounds beyond a traditional winter warmer, drawing inspiration from the dark, spiced ales from Belgium and our love for experimental brewing in SoCal. 10 Lords-A-Leaping is a dark imperial wit ale featuring 10 different spices… which complement the spiced notes imparted from the yeast and prance upon the rich, dark-fruited character of the specialty malts.
The Bruery 10 Lords A Leaping will be a 750-milliliter release.
