A star-studded Saturday batch of new beer labels…
New Belgium BELGO IPA: Is that a disco ball? Looks like this beer is graduating from the Lips of Faith Series and becoming a more regular offering in 12 oz. bottles.
Bell’s Golden Rye Ale, Quinannan Falls Special Lager Beer: New approvals for 750ml bottles
Stillwater Rule of Thirds: #4 in the Import Series, this one is a hoppy tripel brewed at Sint Canarus in Belgium / 11.2 oz bottle, 8% ABV
Deschutes Chainbreaker White IPA: Interesting to see Deschutes doing a White IPA outside of its collaboration White IPA with Boulevard Brewing…they’ve also trademarked the name, “Chainbreaker,” for beer and I wonder if they may consider bottling something as a regular or seasonal offering down the road? Keg only approval for now.
Two Brothers Hop Juice Black Double IPA: Interesting timing (copied from yesterday). Per Two Brothers’ festival site, “This year at the Hop Juice Festival you will have the opportunity to try a Two Brothers Brewing Company festival exclusive beer: Hop Juice Black. This slightly more aggressive dark version of our classic Hop Juice Double IPA will be available in extremely limited amounts. June 18th will be your only opportunity to purchase 22oz silkscreened bottles and taste it on draft throughout the day.”
Drink’in the Sunbelt: Collaboration brew between Mikkeller and Texas-based Jester King Craft Brewery. This is a hoppy wheat beer to be packaged in 750s.
