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.

RELATED: Rogue brews stout with Sriracha Hot Sauce

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

Terrrapin Himalayan Pink Sea Salt Lime Gose

Terrapin Himalayan Pink Sea Salt Lime Gose is on deck in Athens, Georgia.

The brewery already has a winner in the gose style – Watermelon Gose. The beer tastes like summer feels. Joining the brewery’s Side Project Series is  Terrrapin Himalayan Pink Sea Salt Lime Gose, another warm weather/tropically inspired beer.

The name pretty much gives away the composition of this gose; nuanced with limes, pink sea salt, and coriander.

The Gose is made with mineral-rich Himalayan Pink Sea Salt and has flavors of fresh squeezed Makrut Limes and subtle hints of Coriander. Quench your thirst as you meditate on our latest brew.

Side Project #29 is hitting shelves now – Chubby Bunny, a decadent s’mores inspired imperial milk stout. Also preceding this release will be Side Project #30, Blueberry Thyme Saison.

Burial Beer & Hoof Hearted Brewing create ‘Two Dollars’ Pale Ale

Burial Two Dollars Pale Ale

Asheville, North Carolina’s Burial Beer and Marengo, Ohio’s Hoof Hearted Brewing have teamed up on a new pale ale.

This beer starts with the love of 80’s movies. If you don’t believe it, check out the Sloth and Burt Reynolds mural on the side of the Burial’s taproom. This beer starts with the love of the John Cusack classic, Better Off Dead. “Johnny” the menacing paperboy in the movie is constantly yelling “I want my two dollars” for the papers.

In that same vein, the brewing duo have created a beer for the taproom that is just $2 dollars.

‘Two Dollars’ Pale Ale is brewed with coriander and lime, plus a touch of lupulin powder (basically concentrated hops) and a bold yeast. The beer is big on flavor, not on price.

Truly a sight to behold: a man beaten. The once great champ, now, a study in moppishness. Hard enough on his luck to run form a blood-thirsty barrel of killer paperboys. But smart enough to save $2 for this can of delightful pale ale, thriftily hashed together with lupulin powder, citrus peel, and tale from our childhood that is just a beloved by these Ohio boys.

Burial Beer Two Dollars Pale Ale will be available in 12 ounce cans and draft at the brewery on Thursday, April 20th.

Style: Pale Ale (w/ Coriander. LimeLupulin Powder.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft
Debut: 4/20/17

New name: New Belgium Juicy Watermelon Lime Ale returns

New Belgium Juicy Watermelon

New Belgium‘s watermelon lime ale  is back in the brewery’s seasonal lineup for a second time. This year, you’ll see it called New Belgium Juicy Watermelon.

The base recipe is basically the same as before. New Belgium tells Beer Street Journal that “Heavy Melon” didn’t really capture the essence of the beer. When deciding on whether or order or purchase, “heavy” anything might be a turn off. Juicy on the other hand, is much more palatable.

Watermelon and lime are the stars of this beer, that finishes at 5% alcohol by volume. New Belgium loves their seasonals, and this one might be the most crazy (non Lips of Faith) offering to date. If beer was fruit at a hot summer picnic, this beer would be it.

Cool off with this refreshingly fruity summer beer brewed with watermelons and limes.

New Belgium Juicy Watermelon is a 12 ounce bottle and draft seasonal release.

Style:              (w/ Watermelon, Lime)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, 12oz Cans, Draft
Latest Return: Early Spring, 2017

Spring: Abita To-Gose, brewed with key limes

Abita To-Gose

Spring will bring Abita To-Gose to the French Quarter. (As well as everywhere else you can find Abita.)

In 2017, expect to see the Louisiana based brewery release a not only fresh takes on some of their most well-known beers, but also debuting a few new styles. Abita To-Gose the gose seen above being one of them. The brewery has introduced fresh key limes into a German-style gose. The result – a sour ale with a touch of salt and citrus.

In New Orleans, go-cups mean the fun (and the beer) doesn’t always stay inside the bar. To-Gose is Abita’s refreshing take on traditional Gose beer, brewed with malted wheat and barley, sea salt, coriander and German Perle hops. Fresh key limes added during aging create a sour ale with a kick of citrus, spice, and salt.

According to the brewery, Abita To-Gose should be available around May, 2017, in 12 ounce bottles and draft.

Style: Gose (w/ Key Lime, Sea Salt)
Hops: Perle

Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.

Dogfish Head SeaQuench Ale marks the brewery’s 3rd can

Dogfish SeaQuench Ale cans

Dogfish Head SeaQuench Ale debuts today, marking the brewery’s third canned beer.

This tart ale is actually three different styles of beer that come together in one union. SeaQuench starts as a traditional kolsch, a salt-forward gose that is brewed with black limes and sea salt, and a Berliner Weisse brewed with lime juice and peel. The three beers were blended together during fermentation, resulting in a mixed, session sour ale.

Recently, Dogfish Head has started transitioning to 12 ounce cans; releasing 60 Minute IPA and Flesh & Blood IPA.

Three styles blissfully brewed in sequence for a citrusy-tart union, our hybrid sour quencher is brewed with lime peel, black limes, and sea salt.

Dogfish Head SeaQuench Ale is brewed in collaboration with the National Aquarium. Dogfish Head has already started various conservation efforts to help preserve local Chesapeake Bay.

As of January 30th, Dogfish Head SeaQuench Ale will be available in 12 ounce cans and draft at the brewery. Distribution to follow soon.

Style: Gose (w/ Lime Peel, Black Limes, Sea Salt)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Seasonal.
Debut (Cans): 1/30/17
