Boulevard Branches Out!

We understand if you're skeptical. We understand if your mind drifts off to 'Smirnoff Ice.' But give these a chance - it's Boulevard!

And if we could count on anyone to get a canned Ready-to-Drink cocktail right, it would be Boulevard. All four flavors are here and ready for you to drink!

  

Brilliant Belgian From Fonteinen!

So now we're off to the opposite extreme of our brewing spectrum. We have a limited amount of Hommage, a brilliant cellarworthy blended Lambic flavored with raspberries and sour cherries. This stunning, hand-crafted beer is a stunning example of the art of brewing, with layered malt flavors intertwined with the exquisite flavors and hand-picked fruit!

 

A Whole Wild Pack of Sours!

"Sour Beer" can be a complicated category for the uninitiated, but Destihl's Wild Pack has something for newbies and sour verterans alike. Four different styles/flavors with three cans each. Try a classic Sour next to a Berliner next to a Gose next to a Flanders (just be smart and safe!)

Keep a Lookout for Big Brother...

Here's a beer for slow sipping. Martin City has just released Big Brother Imperial Stout, a thick and rich beer aged to perfection (this time) in Bourbon barrels. Thick and layered, with a creamy smooth mouthfeel, the roasted malt notes give way to cherry and vanilla Bourbon notes towards the back. At 11% ABV, take your time with this one.

 

Boulevard Wasn't Fooling!

When our good friends at Boulevard announced they were releasing Easy Sport, a low-carb and -calorie beer - one that had added magnesium and potassium for sports recovery (not to mention tangerine and sea salt), a few people took to social media to point out the very suspicious 4/1 release date (especially with last years 'Turnt Ends' prank.

They weren't joking. It's here. Come and get a refreshing beer for all your sporty aftermaths!

(We're not joking either - it's here and it's actually pretty good!)

 

Big 'Bennie' Stout From Logboat!

If you look your Stouts extra big and bold, snag a 4-pack of 'Bennie cans.' This Imperial Mocha Stout from Columbia's Logboat Brewing shows, deep, saturated color in the glass and is crammed with toasted malt flavors accentuated with coffee, mocha, almond, hazelnut and vanilla!

Bell's Goes Hazy!

It's Official. And it's Bell's Official - their foray into the growing 'Hazy IPA' category. Official blends five different hop species (Mosaic, Citra, Azacca, Amarillo and El Dorado) with a wheat based malt to blend the citric intensity of an IPA with the cloudy look and lively texture of a wheat. Find this one all year! 

 

Uinta Goes Juicy!

It's the other new IPA style! Uinta introduces Clear Daze, their foray into a "juicy"-style IPA - a less hoppy bitter, more sweet-fruited version of a classic IPA. 

 

Natural Light Goes Crazy!

We haven't been this excited for a new yard beer in we don't know how long. When your two styles are "Light" and "Ice," making your third a Strawberry-Lemonade session lager covered in flamingos is a great statement, and we think there might be a few "Naturdays" in this summer's future!

Just in, from Ska Brewing! It's Moral Panic, their new Brut IPA. The hops are added post-boil to tone down the bitterness and accentuate the tropical fruit of Citra and Galaxy hops. This style of IPA means there's a lot more champagnes of beers, to coin a phrase...
