American Craft Beer Apr 23 , 2019

Not Coasting (Longmont, CO) – Oskar Blues Brewery is kicking off their new Steep Coast Mountain IPA Series, an-ever evolving line of beers that showcase one hop varietal at a time. And this time the Strata hop takes center stage. Oskar Blues Steep Coast Strata DIPA is a dank and earthy 8% ABV Double India Pale Ale that was brewed using the much sought-after Strata varietal from Oregon State University’s lauded hop breeding program…a hop that is characterized by its pronounced green cannabis notes.

Luv Yah (Asheville, NC) – Green Man has launched a new beer that celebrates its hometown of Asheville, an eclectic city beloved for its  music,  beer and arts – as well as the mountains that surround it. Brewed in the spirit of openness and inclusion, Green Man LUV AVL is a dry, light-bodied Brut IPA with pleasing hop aromatics and a bright effervescence shine.

Ruby/Ruby/ Ruby (Rochester, NY) – Genesee Brewery has returned a popular summertime release that melds drinkability with a citrusy tang. Crisp, clean and sessionable, Genesee Ruby Red Kölsch is a 4.5% ABV German-style Golden Ale with a smooth mouthfeel and the right amount of hop bitterness.

Born In The Bronx (NYC)  – Two high-profile Bronx companies, the Bronx Brewery and Baldor Specialty Foods, a premier ingredient source for some of NYC’s top chefs have partnered on B-Tracks, a series of beers crafted to showcase unique fruits, vegetables and spices which change with the seasons. And they’ve crafted something new that’s pretty amazing. Brewed with fresh strawberry and seasonal rhubarb, B-Tracks Strobe Light Gose a beautifully red-colored tart, salty and sweet limited release.

Mash In Nation (Holland, MI) – On April 27th New Holland Brewing is returning a barrel-aged beast that’s not been available since 2017. Aged for one year in New Holland Spirits oak bourbon barrels, Dragon’s Milk Triple Mash clocks in at an unapologetic 17% ABV, so be sure to fasten your seat belt.
