Sierra Nevada West Latitude Session Rye, for Beer Camp

Sierra Nevada West Latitude Session Rye

Sierra Nevada West Latitude Session Rye will be part of the new Beer Camp Across America mixed pack in May, 2016.

The last round of Beer Camp Across America in 2014 featured 12 hand-picked breweries that created their own unique beer. In 2016, 30 breweries come together to collaborate, paired by geographic locations.

Sierra Nevada West Latitude Session Rye features five Northern California breweries (plus Hawaii) – a collaboration with Bear RepublicMaui BrewingFaction Brewing, Magnolia Gastropub & Brewery, and Mad River Brewing Co. The team has created a low ABV session ale brewed with hibiscus.

Sierra Nevada West Latitude Session Rye combines our Californian Left Coast love of fruity hops with a touch of Hawaiian “aloha” from the addition of hibiscus flowers, all anchor by robust malts and spicy rye. This session beer is light in body and looks large, like the long shadows of the western sun.

Sierra Nevada West Latitude Session Rye will be a 12 ounce bottle offering in May, a part of the brewery’s Beer Camp Across America 12 pack. The beer will also be featured at the special Beer Camp events across the country.

Style: Pale Ale (w/ Hibiscus)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.

Red Brick Hibiscuwit Launches in Cans In March

Red Brick Hibiscuwit

Red Brick Hibiscuwit is coming to 12oz cans in mid-March. What was once a draft only offering last year is getting an upgrade to package.

The recipe is the brainchild of the brewery’s Tyler Cates. He entered Hibiscuwit into Red Brick’s quarterly Employee Brew-Off, and found his kegs were the first to go.

Red Brick Hibiscuwit is a Belgian-style wheat beer, brewed with organic hibiscus, sweet orange peel, and cinnamon. Hibiscuwit will be one of the first two core beers the brewery has released, after Laughing Skull launched last year.

Expect a Mid-March shelve date in Georgia, the brewery’s other states, by April, 2015.

Style: Witbier (w/ Hibiscus, Cinnamon, Orange Peel.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Release: Mid-March, 2015

Stone Stochasticity Addition: Hibiscusity

Stone Brewing Co. (Escondido, CA) will expand their Stochasticity Project releases with Hibiscusity Belgian-style Ale. Stone created the Stochasticity Project under the pseudonym Koochevagner (a play on the last name of two founders of the company). Taking the Stone name away, it allowed the brewery some freedom to create as they see fit. For instance, this release, a Belgian inspired beer brewed with hibiscus and orange peel. 

When the warmth of summer lifts mercury toward the triple digits, many seek refreshment from “lawnmower beers” (aka—the fizzy, yellow, tasteless, cut-rate, industrialized facsimile of Pilsner we have all come to know and revile). In pushing the beer envelope, we aim to advance imbibers’ options for something far beyond run-of-the-mill with this immensely flavorful alternative. As original as the tongue-twisting name we coined far it, this robust Belgian-style ale is brewed with wheat and rendered optimal for summer with the addition of orange peel and hibiscus, bringing forth floral and citrus notes against a brilliant pink hue.

Stone Stochasticity Hibiscusity will be available in 22oz bombers, and draft.

Style: Belgian-Style Golden Ale (w/ Hibiscus Flower, Orange Peel)
Availability: 22oz Bombers
Arrival: TBA

Nebraska Brewing Launches Wine Barrel “Cowboys” This Month

Nebraska Brewing Company (Papillion, NE) is adding to beers to their Inception Series this month. What was meant to be just one beer is now to series entries. In the end, the barrels you age the beer in have the final say. The base beer is a saison, brewed with rose hips, hibiscus, and cherry juice, then aged in a chardonnay barrel. Indians, the other entry, got a little funky in the barrel. Cowboys didn’t, prompting the two releases. Poking fun at the perception that Nebraska is still like the wild west, they dubbed these two Cowboys & Indians.

Style: Saison (w/ Rose HipsHibiscusCherry JuiceWine Barrel AgedChardonnay)

Availability: 750 ml bottles
