Texas brewery creates a Ramen Noodle infused ‘Cup O Beer’

Collective Brewing Project Cup O Beer

We’ve all been there. You’re down to your last dollar and you’re hungry. Then you see the price tag on the Cup O’ Noodles and all of a sudden you’re back to baller status. Last time we checked you can buy about 40 of them for a dollar.

Cup O’ Noodles, known by college students (and beer writers) the world over, is now officially in a beer thanks to Fort Worth, Texas based The Collective Brewing Project.

The base beer is a tart/sour gose brewed with ginger, lime, lemongrass, and seaweed-cured sea salt. Let’s not forget the star of the show – 55 pounds of Ramen Noodles. (Which probably set the brewery back around $7.50.)

Collective Brewing Project Cup O’ Beer debuted in June, but the beer is still showing up at bars and events around Texas.

Style: Gose (w/ Lemongrass. Ginger. Lime. Sea Salt. Ramen Noodles.)
Availability: 500ml Bottles
Debut: June, 2017

Anderson Valley GT Gose (aka Gin & Tonic Gose)

Anderson Vally GT Gose

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.

Style: Gose (w/ Lemon Peel, Juniper, Lemongrass, Grains of Paradise, Cucumber, Sea Salt, Cinchona Bark.)
Hops: Bravo
Malts: 2 Row, Cara-Crystal, Wheat

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: February, 2017

SweetWater Grass Monkey hits shelves in February

SweetWater Grass Monkey 6pack

SweetWater Grass Monkey is a new seasonal on deck from the Atlanta, Georgia based brewery.

The brewery recently released Squeeze Box, a follow-up to this summer’s extremely popular seasonal release – Goin’ Coastal (brewed with pineapple). Coming soon – SweetWater Grass Monkey, a wheat ale.

RELATED: A look at SweetWater’s new sour facility

The early spring seasonal features a base wheat ale brewed with lemongrass, plus a healthy dose of Lemondrop hops in both the boil and dry hop phases of the brewing process. According to the brewery, the light malt bill allows the piney, grassy, and lemon flavors shine.

Spring got sprung with this funky monkey. We dropped a big stash of Lemondrop hops into both the kettle and the dry hop – delivering a big citrus blast – and topped it off with a Lemongrass addition for a refreshing twist. Light in body with bright citrus notes, this is an extremely complex but very easy drinking brew.

SweetWater Grass Monkey will be available in both 12 ounce and 16 ounce cans, as well as draft until April, 2017.

Style: Wheat Ale (w/ Lemongrass)
Hops: Lemondrop
Malts: 2 Row, Wheat

Availability: 12oz, 16oz Cans, 12oz Bottles, Draft.

Maui Brewing Lemongrass Saison, brewed with Lost Abbey

Maui Lemongrass Saison

What started as a collaboration in 2013 with Lost Abbey is head to shelves again this month – Maui Brewing Lemongrass Saison.

Lost Abbey’s Tomme Arthur mentions that a simple saison with lemongrass was a recipe he always wanted to create, but honestly, never got around to making. Hawaii’s Maui Brewing stepped in and helped make this beer a reality.

RELATED: Maui releases POG IPA

Simple recipe it may be, but neither of these breweries skimp on flavor. The Belgian-style saison uses 200 pounds of locally grown lemongrass.

Our original batch of this beer was the culmination of that vision; and Maui Brewing’s skillful use of this amazing flavor makes me truly wish it was available more often. In revisiting this recipe, my wishes are coming true,”

Maui Brewing Lemongrass Saison is back in action starting Friday, January 6th, in 12 ounce cans and draft.

Style: Saison (w/ Lemongrass)
Hops: El Dorado, Cascade
Malts: Oats, Pilsner

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
