Sierra Nevada Peach IPA

Sierra Nevada Peach IPA is slated for a future Variety Pack in 2017.

The California/North Carolina based brewery has released a peach IPA recipe in the past, part of the Beer Camp Across America lineup. Next year, a new iteration of Sierra Nevada Peach IPA will rise again. As you can imagine, an American India pale ale with fresh peaches.

Who’s afraid of a little fruit in their beer? Our brewers jumped headfirst to add peach to an intensely hoppy IPA for a brew that crushes fruit beer stereotypes. That’s our Peach IPA — a real beer, crafted for the aspiring beer geek. You’re welcome.

Sierra Nevada Peach IPA will be a 12 ounce bottle release. The brewery has not yet announced this beer

HOT. Flying Dog Carolina Reaper Peach IPA

Flying Dog Carolina Reaper Peach IPA

Flying Dog Carolina Reaper Peach IPA is now a part of the brewery’s “Heat Series.” This hot one is notable. Especially if you love hot food.

It’s all about the Carolia Reaper pepper. You should know it by now as the world’s hottest pepper. It’s ridiculously hotter than Jalapeño. It’s hotter than Ghost Peppers. The brainchild of Puckerbutt Pepper Company’s Ed Currie.

So this isn’t just all heat (and later intestinal discomfort), the brewery added peaches.

 This beer’s sweet peach and juicy hops hit you first and then the Reaper chews you up and spits you out. One to fear, for sure.

The brewery said it best when they said Flying Dog Carolina Reaper Peach IPA goes hard in the paint. That’s a hot, menacing pepper. You won’t soon forget it.

Style: IPA (w/ Carolina Reaper Peppers, Peaches)
Availability: 12oz Bottles
Debut: Mid-August, 2016

6.8% ABV

Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities White Peach Saison debuts

Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities White Peach Saison

Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities White Peach Saison has debuted, a late summer saison with peaches.

Erin and Nate from the brewery’s marketing team, mentioned the idea for this release. As a late summer release, a French-style saison would be nicely nuanced by white peaches. In case you don’t know, white or pale peach is lower in acidity, than a yellow peach, and taste sweeter.

The candy-sweet character of El Dorado hops added a modern twist to the beer, which is already high on our crushability scale.

Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities White Peach Saison is a 12 ounce bottle and draft limited offering.

Style: Saison (w/ Peaches, Black Peppercorn)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Limited release.
Debut: 8/12/16

5.7% ABV

Epic Sour Brainless on Peaches, Batch #2

Epic Sour Brainless on Peaches

Epic Sour Brainless on Peaches is making a second appearance in Denver starting April 21st. The beer kicked off their sour program last year.

When Epic built their Denver, Colorado brewery in 2013, the sour program took a major step forward with the addition of three 60 hectoliter oak foeders (seen below). In 2014, some Brainless on Peaches casks got funked up by some errant wild yeast, and was so tasty, that Epic Sour Brainless on Peaches ended up launching the program. As of early 2016, the brewery now has 12 foeders.

In the fall of 2013, one foeder was filled with the souring bacteria, Lactobacillus, another with Brettanomyces. Scared to death of Pediococcus (aka “The Devil”), Epic filled wine casks with the Pedio and left the third foeder for blending.

The Final Blend.

Epic Sour Brainless on Peaches is a blend of the Brett and Lacto foeders, and all the Pediococcus wine casks that were blended into neutral oak white wine casks. The brewery’s new found love of Pediococcus eventually led them to finally funk up that third foeder with “The Devil”.

The 2016 blend is comprised 80% of Peaches aged 15 months, plus some aged 30 months (20% of final blend).

Epic Brainless on Peaches Batch #2 is limited to just 5000, 375 milliliter bottles.

Style: American WIld/Sour Ale (w/ Peaches, Oak Aged.)
Availability: 375ml  bottles
Latest Return: April, 2016
