The new labels just don’t stop rolling in…here are eight more.
Three Heads Ontario Coast: The brewery’s first seasonal according to their Facebook page. “This is our Belgian-style IPA. We will be using a unique yeast strain that imparts luscious fruity and spicy flavors. Combined with an ass-load of hops, this beer will be the perfect summer beer! Also, it weighs in at 7.5% [and 72 IBUs].” Would you be upset if you bought an IPA that didn’t make it clear that it used a Belgian yeast strain? More importantly, would an average beer drinker think something is off with this “IPA?”
Two Beers Evolution IPA: One of the most daring label designs that I have seen yet for cans. A quirky shape may translate well for bottles but we will see how it translates for cans.
The Alchemist Heady Topper: The much-discussed IPA is coming to cans soon and the label has been approved. I don’t recall a release date being set though some discussion on BA says it could be in June.
BridgePort Summer Squeeze: New summer seasonal coming out of Oregon…”ale brewed with lemon zest and Yuzu fruit juice added”
Figure Eight Jumbo Love Black Barleywine: This has been limited as a draft/growler-only beer but is headed for 22 oz. bottles. O.G. is 23.7 deg. Plato.
Milwaukee Saison: Not much info on this one though the Midwest Beer Collective interviewed Assistant Brewer, Nick Van Court, who said his go-to beer was Saison Dupont. Perhaps this beer draws some inspiration from it.
Cottonwood Frostbite: This beer is returning with a new look as part of Foothills Brewing’s purchase of Carolina Beer Company and re-launch of its various brands.
