Goose Island Bourbon County Reserve Rye 2019 is among the variants releasing in the imperial stout series this year.

The Bourbon Country Vertical Collection will have one 16.9 ounce bottle of 2017, 2018, and 2019 for side-by-side sampling, with some newbie notes on the back explaining the art of cellaring beer.

Stone 23rd Uncanny Anni Double IPA releases in the coming week, a celebration of 23 years of craft brewing.
Over the years, Stone Brewing’s anniversary releases have covered a plethora of styles. The 5th Anniversary release was an IPA, followed by a porter on the 6th. 12th was Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, and 15th a Black IPA. Some years it was an IPA with all German hops and malts, others all Austrailian, there was even hazy IPA in there somewhere.
The 23rd Anniversary release is simply what Stone does best. Hops, and lots of them. This “no-aluminum-yet-lotsa-hops Stone 23rd Anniversary Uncanny Anni Double IPA” is full of “hefty doses” of Mosaic, Citra, and Cascade. (Aka, the hops A-Listers.)
Stone 23rd Uncanny officially debuts on August 12th in 22-ounce bottles and draft.
Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Mosaic, Citra, Cascade
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft. Limited Release.
Bell’s Brewery’s Two Hearted Ale is known epically as one of the best (if not the best) India pale ale in America. As you read this, fans are eagerly awaiting Double Two Hearted Ale, which is basically Two Hearted turned into the Incredible Hulk. The “Hearted Ale” series has a lesser known, lovable lighter side – Light Hearted Ale.
The 110 calorie, 8.7 carb, 3.5% alcohol by volume “light” ale has been a Bell’s General Store exclusiver release, showing up on social media earlier this summer.
By the looks of it, the brewery has redesigned the artwork, presumably in a move to take this session India pale ale national. Sample bottles with the new artwork have surfaced online.
Per the brewery’s description:
Light hearted is everything you love about Two Hearted: 100% centennial hops, balanced, a firm malt backbone, and all of the hop aroma too, from pine to grapefruit.
Bell’s Light Hearted Ale does not appear on the brewery’s release calendar currently.
Payette Brewing Oktoberfest returns to the Boise, Idaho based brewery’s taps on August 5th.
The beer has been a part of Payette’s seasonal lineup for five years now. Back in 2016, the brewery launched this lager in cans for the first time.
Here’s our take on the classic Märzen Style Lager, for the original festival that celebrates beer – with beer. Our Oktoberfest goes well with sauerkraut, brauts and a pair of lederhosen. It has a rich body, smooth flavor and notes of sweet caramel malt that are like polka music to your mouth.
Payette Oktoberfest will be available in August in 12-ounce cans and draft. Additionally, the brewery will host their own Oktoberfest again September 20th.
Hops: Hallertau Mittlefruh
Malts: Acidulated, Munich, Pilsner, Vienna
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Aug-Sept.
