California’s Mother Earth Brew Co. begins a new series: Project X: Beer + Art as August winds down.
This one-off series will feature limited release, specialty beers, focused what Mother Earth Brew calls “big impressions” from the first sip to last. This first release taps the very popular hazy India pale ale style.
Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo, and Nelson were chosen for Groove Rider to create an intensely aromatic hop experience.
Finishes dry enough to be West-Coast, but fruity enough to be East Coast. It’s everything you’d want from a hazy in 2019.
The can artwork was done by 48beerproject. The Project X: Beer + Art Series will be an ongoing indie artwork/brewing project.

Wild Leap Vanilla Ice Cream Stout, the brewery’s sixth new release in Summer 2019, debuts.
In keeping with the brewery’s line of ice cream themed beers (you shouldn’t have missed Bomb Pop Double IPA), LaGrange, Georgia based Wild Leap Brewing has released a new imperial milk stout, inspired by a big bowl of vanilla ice cream. According to the brewery, it’s the heaviest bodied beer Wild Leap has created to date.
The base is a boozy milk stout (brewed with lactose), and a heavy dose of vanilla. So much so, that the brewery’s CEO calls this release “high in decadence.” Wild Leap’s head brewer Chris Elliott used to work for Blue Bell Ice Cream, so the fusion of past and present jobs is sure to continue in future beers.
Wild Leap Vanilla Ice Cream Stout is available in 12-ounce cans and draft for a limited time.

A successful year-round cream ale now inspired by a frosty popsicle. Mother Earth Creamin’ Creamsicle debuts year-round.
