Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse is as close to a beer-inspired Arnold Palmer drink as we’ve ever tried. This month, the beer returns for a second season.
The brewing team in Athens, Georgia has a penchant for lower alcohol by volume beers as well as kettle souring. A blend of those two created the wildly popular Watermelon Gose.
Sweet tea and golf are southern staples; making for easy inspiration for Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse. The tea is courtesy of Maya Tea in Tucson, Arizona.
Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse is available in 12-ounce cans and draft again starting in March 2018.

Westbrook Lemon Cucumber Gose could be released in cans in the near future.
The Mount Pleasant, South Carolina based brewery’s base Gose might be one of the most popular of the style in the southeast. It was first released in 2012, and once it was canned, really flew off the shelves.
That popular release gave rise to a new variant – Key Lime Pie Gose, inspired by the dessert.
It looks like Westbrook Lemon Cucumber Gose is on the horizon in cans, a beer that just screams warmer weather. Expect a tart gose with hints of lemon and cucumber, in a 12-ounce, 4% alcohol by volume package. This beer has already made an appearance on draft.
Enjoy the cool and refreshing flavors of lemon and cucumber by the pool, as the beach, in the shower, in bed, in the bathroom, in the living room, at breakfast, at lunch, at the spa, on a walk, after a run… you get the idea.
Westbrook Lemon Cucumber Gose has not been formally announced by the brewery.
Monday Night Dr. Robot is the latest can release by the Atlanta based brewery.
This raspberry kettle soured ale was first teased in September, at a media event previewing Monday Night’s second located now known as the ‘Garage’. Dr. Robot is a simple sour beer, brewed with fresh blackberry juice and lemon zest. The result is a beautiful pink tinted beer that is great for drinking on its own, or with some of your favorite food.
A tart, fruity sour beer. Dr. Robot is as playful as its name. After souring to a delightfully tart level, we add blackberry juice and lemon zest to enhance and balance the flavor. The juice gives this beer a pink hue. The perfect blend of sweet and sour, Dr. Robot is a refreshing year-round sipper.
Monday Night Dr. Robot is available in 12-ounce cans and draft, year-round starting in October.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: October 2017
This collaborator series has paired seen the likes of Deschutes Brewery, Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project, Firestone Walker, Cigar City, Ommegang, and Orval. Boulevard Collaboration 7 is the first time a two breweries have been a part of the project at the same time.
The trio is creating a “juicy” lager for this seventh iteration, aged briefly on virgin oak. Juicy is an understating term, thanks to peach puree, lemon zest and riesling chosen to compliment carefully selected Nelson Sauvin, Lemondrop and Hallertau Blanc hops. The malt bill is quite complex too, brewed with pale malt, Sonoran White Wheat, Missouri wheat, honey malt and corn grits.
The finished beer is bottle conditioned with champagne yeast, producing an effervescent golden lager perfect for the late summer heat. Last year, Arizona Wilderness and Creature Comforts partnered on “Transmission“, a citrus saison.
Boulevard Collaboration 7 is now available in 12 ounce bottles and draft for a limited time.
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: August, 2017
Jester King Queen’s Order debuts at the brewery in Austin, Texas on May 19th.
The base beer is a farmhouse ale brewed with Texas-grown Eureka and Ujukitsu lemons, along with Texas Guajillo honey.Brewed back in February of the year, Jester King Queen’s Order was fermented in stainless steel with a blend of native yeast and bacteria.
“Queen’s Order” is a nod to the 1,000s of little workers that make the sticky, delicious nectar both in Texas and beyond. Austin is home to the National Honey Beer Summit taking place later this month.
Look at them crank. These are the tiny, well-oiled gears of an industry. They are paragons of fealty; each of their lifespans represents the durability of a replaceable component in a machine built for another’s purpose. It is fascinating to watch them buzz along endlessly like characters in their own dystopian novel, unaware of their audience and unable to afford a single thought beyond the Queen’s Order.
Jester King Queen’s Order will be available in 750 milliliter bottles and draft when the brewery opens on May 19th.
Availability: 750ml Bottles
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
Fruit nuanced India pale ales have taken the beer world by storm over the past year, and 2017 will be no different. The beer debuted in 2016 in the brewery’s “Occasionals” lineup, but demand is dictating otherwise. Dogfish Head Flesh & Blood IPA has been promoted to year-round status, exclusively in aluminum.
Flesh & Blood’s base is an imperial IPA, brewed with fresh lemon flesh, and blood orange juice.
“We’ve been experimenting with fruit and citrus IPA’s since 1996 when we released Aprihop, an IPA brewed with apricots. The India Pale Ale is the biggest craft beer style in America and the most popular breakout subset style in the fruit IPA. We think the fruit IPA category will surge the fastest in 2017 and we are proud of Dogfish Head’s innovator position in this realm.” – Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head founder and CEO
Dogfish Head Flesh & Blood IPA as well as 60 Minute IPA are now shipping to all distribution markets as of January, 2017.
