SweetWater Tropical Lover rolls off the can in Atlanta as a new seasonal in April.
Nick Burgoyne, brewer at SweetWater has been developing this recipe for some time now. He created a low alcohol by volume Berliner Weisse; adding mango, guava, and passionfruit to the beer. The result was something quite tropical and very refreshing.
“When we put test batches on tap at the Woodlands and in our main taproom, people kept commenting on how drinkable and refreshing it was; they loved the tropical flavors. I imagine Tropical Lover will be a hit with folks hanging out on the water all summer, kicking back with a few daytime drinks.” – Nick B.
SweetWater Tropical Lover will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft starting April 7th. Look for a launch party at the brewery on April 19th.
Terrapin Luau Krunkles, a tropically inspired India pale ale, will be offered year-round in 2018.
“Krunkles” is a fictitious character (perhaps real, depending on who you ask at the brewery) that travels the world looking for new India pale ales. The series has seen releases like Krunkles Down Under (all Aussie & New Zealand hops), Samurai Krunkles, and Dr. Krunkles.
Terrapin Luau Krunkles is inspired by a Hawaiian drink called POG. The beverage is brewed with passionfruit, orange, and guava. (Yes that same drink gave rise to the POG game of the 90’s.) In 2017 when the temperature started to rise, so did Luau Krunkles. The demand for POG is so high, the beer will be offered year-round this year.
Krunkles is back with another world renowned IPA inspired by this time spent on the Hawaiian Islands. Jam packed with tropical flavors of passionfruit, orange and guava, this “Hawaiian IPA” is brewed to accompany you to your next luau.
Ed Note: Luau Krunkles has already been available year-round in the brewery’s IPA Survival Kit
New Belgium Voodoo Ranger Guava Spruce DIPA is a future potential in the brewery’s Voodoo Ranger Series.
In late 2016, New Belgium announced the addition of the Voodoo Ranger Series. IPA, Imperial IPA, 8 Hop joined the series year-round. Earlier this year, Voodoo Ranger added a few “Special Releases” in 22-ounce bottles – Passionfruit Imperial IPA, Red IPA, and Juicy Mandarina IPA.
It looks like New Belgium Voodoo Ranger Guava Spruce DIPA is on the way soon. The India pale ale is brewed with guava and spruce.
This forthcoming release is slated for 16-ounce cans and draft. The brewery has not yet announced this release.
The Veil Brewing Human Adult debuts on September 26th.
This beer is the latest in a series of collaborations with Boston, Massachusetts based Trillium Brewing Company. A few months ago, the group brewed Adult Human at Trillium. That release was an imperial IPA brewed 100% with Citra hops and blood orange puree.
The Veil Brewing Human Adult has been created in the same vein – that is with the same malt and yeast profile, but with a few changes. Vic Secret hops were tagged in for Citra, and Guava puree instead of blood orange juice. As The Veil puts it – “The same, but different”.
The Veil Brewing Human Adult will be available at the brewery in Richmond, Virginia on Tuesday, September 26th.
