Now for the other dozen plus labels that came in today…
Sixpoint Diesel: Not approved yet but posted on Facebook by the brewery. This is a 6.4% ABV American Stout. Based on Sixpoint’s comments, the brewery hopes that its beers will be in CT by the end of the year (or at least in 2012).
Four Poco Loko: This appears to be a new product/branding thing which, in itself, isn’t terribly interesting to most readers here. Look closer at the label and you will see that there is a QR code. These are picking up steam in the beer world though I have yet to see a link to an app that could be as useful on a mobile device as this one. Nice job by the Phusion Projects team or whoever they outsourced the work to…worth looking at for breweries considering QR codes on their labels.
Grand Teton Wake Up Imperial Coffee Porter: Per the brewery website, this will be, “available on September 1st in bottle-conditioned 750mL bottles and on draft.” Description: “Wake Up Call Imperial Coffee Porter has a distinct and robust coffee flavor that blends harmoniously with the roasted malts. Caramel, chocolate, and black malts give this ale its dark color and overtones of caramel and a cocoa-like sweetness. Only very gently hopped, the addition of coffee shines through, providing a delicious accent to this brew.”
