Hello Hello my friends! Welcome to the first beer bulletin to be crafted with our newfangled website! This way I'll be able to send it your way each week while also giving them a home accessible to those who aren't on the mailing list. Now, without further ado, on to the beer!
Unseen Creatures The Magician
Double NEIPA | 8.6% ABV
The Tarot card “The Magician” represents the power of manifestation and the ability to make our wishes come true. Here is how to find the magic:
⁃ Drinking this brand new Double Hazy IPA hopped with Nelson, Simcoe, and Grungeist.
⁃ Sharing that beer with friends creates a connection filled with laugher and conversation
⁃ Awakening the imagination and let the inspiration flow
So the next time you’re enjoying a beer, take a moment to appreciate its magic. From the flavors to the shared experiences, each sip can be a reminder that magic is found in the simplest things in life.
Unseen Creatures x Shapes & Objects Antlers & Auroras
West Coast IPA | 7.0% ABV
A collaboration with Shapes & Objects Beer Co.,
Antlers & Auroras is a West Coast IPA throwback to a bygone era when IPA's were clear and bitter. Their collaborative version is well balanced with citrus and pine, a bit of tropical fruit on the nose, and a crispy dry finish. Hopped with cascade, simcoe, citra, and centennial hops.
Bluejacket This Must Be The Place
New England IPA | 7.0% ABV
Here's a brewery we haven't seen in a hot minute!
Double dry-hopped with a blend of Galaxy, Simcoe and Mosaic, This Must Be the Place is soft & creamy on the palate and bursting with tropical fruit aromas.
Bluejacket Yellow Diamonds
Export Lager | 5.5% ABV
Inspired by the export lagers from the Dortmund region of Germany. Yellow Diamonds is malty & smooth, with hints of honey & toast. Spicy, floral hop aromas balance against the subtle malt sweetness. Brewed exclusively with craft malt from Valley Malt (Massachusetts).
Väsen Cloud Thief
New England IPA | 6.0% ABV | 27 IBU
There's no rain in the forecast as far as Väsen's concerned, except for raining citrus and berry goodness all over your tastebuds. Cloud Thief is a brand new style for Väsen: a velvety wheat IPA with loads of hops and a slightly bready malt backbone. Generous dry hop additions of Mosaic, Idaho 7, Sultana, and Motueka deliver notes of blueberry, citrus, and pineapple. Cloud Thief is guaranteed to make it feel like you're sitting in the sunshine.
Väsen Key Lime Sour
Fruited Sour | 7.0% ABV
Väsen's serving up fresh key lime pie for your drinking pleasure! Technically it's beer, but your tastebuds won't know the difference when you're sipping on Key Lime Sour, made with tons of key lime and Mexican vanilla beans. American Pilsner malt creates the slightest pie crust flavor, rounding out this fruity sour.
Port City Star Sailor
IPA | 6.2% ABV | 40 IBU
Star Sailor has been reformulated! Journey into an unknown universe with Star Sailor; an Intergalactic IPA like no other. Star Sailor is an exploration into the boundless style category of IPA. Port City is strapping in Citra, Simcoe, Pekko, and El Dorado hops on their cosmic journey this year.
Port City German Pilsner
Pilsner | 4.6% ABV | 35 IBU
Looking to Germany for inspiration, Port City's German Pilsner is drier and blonder than the classic Bohemian-style pilsner. Brewed with pilsner malt and Noble hops, German Pilsner has a floral and spicy aroma with flavors of lightly sweet malt, finishing firm and dry on the palate. This refreshing pilsner is served in the “Keller” style, meaning unfiltered and naturally carbonated. Beauty in simplicity, as this two malt and three hop lager won a gold medal at the 2019 GABF® in the Kellerbier/Zwickelbier category.
Necromancer Pacific Gravity
West Coast IPA | 6.8% ABV | 6.2 IBU
Please welcome Necromancer Brewing Co. out of Pittsburgh, PA to the stacks!
Get amped up for some gnarly waves of hoppy goodness, as they paddle out to IPA’s other coast. The haze reigns these days, but this foam leads to a groundswell of complex balance that can only be found by boldly riding the bitter side of hops. Necromancer waxed this bad boy down with a generous helping of Centennial, Citra, and Simcoe so it rips with just enough resinous, piney bitterness to round out those signature citrus-grapefruit notes that you’ll never want to bail on.
Precarious Everything Is Lava But The Swings Are Base
Double NEIPA | 8.1% ABV
The next in Precarious' playground series of Double IPAs, Lava features pineapple-forward Idaho 7, and mixed berry-like Mosaic hops. They achieved a new level of softness and creaminess in this beer, still with a huge aroma and flavor of tropical fruit and berries. They make up the rules to our DIPAs as they go, a lot like the “ground is lava” game they used to play as kids.
Equilibrium x Parish Ghost In The Laboratory
Double NEIPA | 8.5% ABV
This monster of a beer combines elements of Straight Outta The Laboratory and Parish’s DDH Ghost In The Machine in DIPA form.
Using a mashed-up grain bill from Straight Outta The Laboratory and Ghost in The Machine, the guys used a massive dose of CO2 extract, Citra Incognito, and Citra T-90s on the hotside, followed by an insane amount of Citra LUPOMAX and Citra T-90s for the Double Dry Hop, still one of the heaviest dry hops in Equilibrium’s history.
Ghost In The Laboratory pours an opaque and vivid yellow and has very strong aromas of extreme mango supported by tropical nectar. The flavor is explosive with extremely saturated notes of mango smoothie, Grovestand Orange Juice with plenty of pulp, orange tang, tropical fruit cup in syrup, dank grass, and a rainbow melon creamsicle note from that #EQjuice finish, all packed into a resinous and chewy mouthfeel only a Ghost in The Lab can bring you.
Hubbard's Cave Hopsurd
Double IPA | 7.5% ABV | 100 IBU
Imperial West Coast IPA West Coast with Mosaic and Warrior!
Half Acre Daisy Cutter
Pale Ale | 5.2% ABV | 60 IBU
Say hello to Half Acre Beer Co, out of Chicago, IL! An American west coast Pale Ale chock full of dank, aromatic hops that bite up front, then ease into citrus, and set the finish up to nail the spot!
Pale Ale | 5.5% ABV
Ziggy is a soft, aromatic, and approachable unfiltered Pale Ale brewed with two German hop varietals - Halltertau Mittelfruh and Halltertau Blanc.
Resident Culture Squirrel Friends
Fruited Sour | 5.0% ABV
This one is a certified mouth party, fruited with Guava, Coconut, Tangerine & Lime. It’s a white sand beach and palm leaf cabana kind of vibe. Cheers to getting TFO of the house, to dancing to live music, and to being surrounded by friends, old and new.
Area Two Twoquila
Imperial Fruited Gose | 8.2% ABV
Civilization has come up with some great flavor combinations, like tequila and lime. Two Road's Area Two took their Persian Lime Gose, brewed it with agave and aged it in authentic tequila barrels from Jalisco, Mexico. Time spent in these barrels imparts an oaky character and subtle notes of blue agave. A touch of fresh lime juice perfects this most delightful beer. Salud!
A summer favorite of mine!
Hermit Thrush Riverbeer
Kettle Sour | 5.2% ABV
Hermit Thrush loves using Four Star Farms' local hops, from just around the river bend. This tart pale ale also features rotating hops showcasing Four Star's terroir.
Imperial Coffee Stout | 10.0% ABV
Imperial stout conditioned atop direct-trade espresso beans from Brazil (Daterra), Costa Rica (Tarrazu), and Guatemala (San Jacinto).
Aromatically, this stout presents with freshly ground espresso beans. The flavor is inclusive of freshly pulled espresso shots, chocolate, roast, molasses, walnut, and red fruit (think raspberry or dark cherry); dry, with a balanced body, inviting mouthfeel, and bitterness. This stout is intentionally coffee-forward!
Wiseacre Gotta Get Up To Get Down
Coffee Stout | 5.0% ABV | 15 IBU
Rounding things out this week is Wiseacre Brewing Company out of Memphis, TN! Magical natural process beans from the Konga region of Ethiopia lead the way in this intense coffee stout. This rare variety of coffee leads to aromas of sweet roastiness and blueberry pie flavors. Lactose, or milk sugar, is added along with oats for a silky medium body and a lush finish.
