Weekly Beer Update: Thursday January 22, 2014 and Special Releases

Breweries truly are The Gift that Keeps on Giving. Enjoy.

This week we finally welcome 5 Rabbit Cerveceria from Bedford Park, Illinois. This GABF award winning brewery is a Latin influenced craft brewery created by some of the best names in craft beer. They create wonderful arrays of flavors using Latin inspired ingredients and culture.

5 Rabbit - 5 Lizard (New/Year-Round)
Six-Pack 12oz Bottles  4.30%  Wheat Ale w/Coriander, Lime Peel and Passion Fruit
RateBeer: 71 Belgian White
-Buyers Notes- The addition of the fruit sets this witbier apart. The nose is full with yeast and passion fruit and the tartness of the lime peel cutting the sweetness on the palate. Awesome highly drinkable beer.

Six-Pack 12oz Bottles  5.00%  Porter w/Ancho Chile
RateBeer: 73 Porter

Four-Pack 12oz Bottle  6.80%  Black India Pale Ale
RateBeer: requires more ratings

Fremont - Dark Star (New/Seasonal)
Four-Pack 12oz Cans  8.00%  Imperial Oatmeal Stout
RateBeer: 97 Imperial Stout

Single 22oz Bottle  9.50%  Wheatwine Ale
RateBeer: requires more ratings
-Buyers Notes- If you are a fan of Barleywines, buy this beer! This is a  first of it's kind. Made with 100% Wheat Malt this beer is full of flavor without being overly sweet like some Barleywines.The body is huge but smooth as silk.

Single 22oz Bottle  9.50%  Imperial India Pale Ale
RateBeer: 99 Imperial/Double IPA

Single 22oz Bottle  7.00%  India Pale Ale
RateBeer: 98 India Pale Ale

New Belgium - Slow Ride (New/Year-Round)
Six-Pack 12oz Bottles  4.50%  Session India Pale Ale
RateBeer: 82 Session IPA
-Buyers Notes- This beer might be the best "Session IPA" I've had. Big tropical nose with a mellow easy to drink hop-forward taste. Somehow they made a 40 IBU beer taste like a 60 IBU IPA without the tongue lashing.

Single 750ml Bottle  6.90%  Red Saison w/Brettanomyces
RateBeer: 95 Saison

Prairie - Funky Gold Amarillo (New/Limited)
