Beer News:

Since starting this blog last week it's been interesting watching all the hits. I hope I can (hopefully with the help of others) keep up with this blog and keep providing useful information.

What I learned this week:
Odell Brewing's Hivaranno (American Wild Ale) will be released in the next 2-3 weeks (Store release date(s) coming soon). Odell has also move their much loved St. Lupulin into bottling and it should be here in the next week or two.

Crabtree has an interesting beer coming soon in celebration of the breweries 5th anniversary. Only 40 (twelve 750ml corked and caged bottles) cases were produced of a Belgian Abbey style ale brewed with coriander and dried orange peel then barrel aged in Cabernet barrels for the last 12 months with an addition of caramelized raisins (caramelized in house by hand). The allocations will be sparse but it sounds like Jeff has more things like this in his plans.

Boulevard will bring Saison Brett back this year. It is still 2-3 weeks out from hitting the market and as always will be limited.

Stone Imperial Russian Stout with and without the Belgian yeast and Anise is looking at a 2-3 week release from now.

Redhook will not continue with its Limited seasonal bomber series. Widmer will. Goose Island has promised us 2 rotating seasonal bombers year round (Including Bourbon County). We'll see how well they hold to that.

Tomorrow: New Beers list
