Creature Comforts Cucumber and Lime Tritonia is coming to cans soon. The Athens, Georgia based brewery found instant success with the fusion of limes and cucumber when the gose was released on draft for the first time two years ago.
In 2017, Cucumber and Lime Tritonia will finally have cans to go along with the draft offering. The base tart gose is brewed with coriander and sea salt, plus a blend of fresh lime and cucumber.
“Tritonia is one of my favorite of our limited release beers. It’s extremely refreshing and perfect for the spring months as the weather starts to warm up.” – David Stein, Co-founder and Head Brewer
Creature Comforts Cucumber and Lime Tritonia is one of two “Tritonia” variants expected this year. Available in very limited 12 ounce cans and draft.

SweetWater Cool Breeze has been bottled, right on time for spring in the south. The brewery has been busy this week bottling the new release.
Never has the Atlanta, Georgia based brewery canned a saison, nor brewed with cucumber. Two firsts with this new release. The brewery has seen great success with subtle additions of fruit to their seasonal offerings, and is looking to continue the trend with this refreshing cucumber saison.
A fresh and refreshing way to find that chill spot this summer. This cucumber flavored Belgian-style saison is light in body and laid back in spirit. Notes of fresh cucumber and lime flavors come through in this hazy golden summer crusher.
SweetWater Cool Breeze will be a 12 ounce can, bottle and draft offering. Look for your first taste of Cool Breeze at SweetWater 420 Fest, and on shelves shortly after.
Anderson Valley GT Gose is headed to market, a new botanical gose.
Think of a gin & tonic cocktail when it comes to this new gose. The idea came about after a few in house discussions surrounding beer cocktails, and barrel-aged gins. The brewery used lemon peel, juniper berries, and lemongrass at the end of beer’s boil, adding botanical notes that gin boasts.
During fermentation, the brewery added cucumber, salt, and a touch of cinchona bark.
Reminiscent of a classic cocktail, our GT Gose showcases botanical flavors and aromas of lemon peel, juniper, lemongrass, and grains of paradise. With a juicy lemon-lime tartness and slightly peppery finish, we’ve given the gose style a unique spin that we’re sure you’ll enjoy.
Anderson Valley GT Gose is available in 12 ounce cans, and draft.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: February, 2017
Asheville, North Carolina’s Hi-Wire Brewing has been absolutely killing it with the artwork. Don’t believe us? See Hi-Wire 10W-40 Imperial Stout. Coming in February is some more awesome artwork, found in the Hi-Wire Collaboration 12-Pack. If you’ve ever used a can of spray paint, or stepped foot in the paint section of a hardware store, you’ll find something familiar with this branding.
It has been a while since Hi-Wire has been able to collaborate with other breweries, thanks to the time it has taken to get settled in with their new production facility. When time opened up on the production schedule, they opted to go big.
Holy City co-owner Jeff Moreadith is a lover of lighter beers, as well as an Asheville resident. Together, they created Carolina Coastal Black Rye Lager using Seashore Black Rye, a malt grown outside Charleston, South Carolina.
The 12-pack will be rounded out with Hi-Wire’s flagship beers: Hi-Pitch Mosaic IPA, Hi-Wire Lager, and Hi-Wire Gose.
Look for Hi-Wire Collaboration 12-pack throughout the brewery’s entire distribution footprint in mid-February, 2017.
Wicked Weed Coolcumber, a draft offering in the past, is now available in bottles as of today.
The beer is exactly as it sounds, a golden ale brewed with cucumber. Take our word for it – it really does smell and taste like cucumber. (Plus basil and juniper berries of course.) Face it, the South is hot. This beer is like air conditioning in a glass.
Summer in Carolina is a time when days grow long, life slows down, and friends draw near. Gardens burst with brisk basil and fresh cucumbers, fireflies illuminate the night sky, and warm days leave us lounging late, our glasses brimming with golden nectar. Summer in the South is best served cool.
Wicked Weed Coolcumber is a 12 ounce bottle offering.
Flat12 Cucumber Kolsch is coming to cans this month. The Indianapolis, Indiana brewery unique spin on the German style is a summer favorite.
The brewery’s can line is about 2 years old; having already canned Upside Down Blonde, Half Cycle IPA and Hinchtown Hammerdown.
Flat12’s summer seasonal begins with lager qualities owed to pilsner malt and cold fermentation. It pours a deep gold color with smooth drinkability and a super-refreshing finish from an infusion of cucumber. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a hot summer day. You’ll stay cool as a cucumber with this Kölsch.
The big question… do cucumber and kolsch go well together? We’d like to think so. The Beer Street Journal team spent the July 4th weekend killing a six pack. The kolsch style isn’t the easiest style to brew and Flat12 has done a tasty job. The cucumber flavor just adds to the refreshment, making this beer even more summer-y.
Flat12 Cucumber Kolsch is now available in the taproom and distribution.
Pinko Russian Imperial Stout will follow in late summer, Flat Jack Pumpkin Ale in August, and a new fall seasonal in September.
