Magic Hat Art Hop Ale 2016 features blood orange & sage

Magic Hat Art Hop Ale 2016

Magic Hat Art Hop Ale 2016 is coming this summer. The beerĀ is a collaboration; an intersection of art and brewing.

The brewery teamed up with the non-profit SEABA (South End Arts and Business), which promotes local artists as well as businesses. The Labels for Libations contest motivatedĀ Vermont artists to submit works for the can.

The winning label was crated by Zelde Grimm.

Magic Hat Art Hop Ale 2016 is an imperial blonde ale, brewed with blood orange, orange peel, and sage.

A bready malt body creates a solid canvas for blood orange, while sage provides the balancing juxtaposition of spice to the citrus notes from Simcoe, Amarillo and Cascade hops.

Magic Hat Art Hop Ale 2016 is available all summer in 16 ounce cans and draft.

Style: Blonde Ale (w/ Blood Orange, Orange, and Sage.)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Summer seasonal.
Debut: June, 2016

8% ABV

Magic Hat Mother Lager Looks to Return to Lineup

Magic Hat Mother Lager

Magic Hat Mother Lager looks to be making a return to the brewery’s lineup. First released back in 2003, we estimate it was retired around 2007-2008.

Magic Hat Mother Lager is a euro pale lager meant to refresh, but is quite easy to drink.

“The Evolved Euro-Style Lager. Brewed to spur the people to unite in the fight for imbibing emancipation and smash the oppressive tyranny of malt monotony! Mother Lager was a refreshing, evolved alternative to the familiar Euro-style imports, exported from the People’s Republic of Vermont.”

Magic Hat Mother Lager is a 12 ounce bottle offering. The return has not yet been announced.

Style: Lager
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
