The Hype – Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout

brooklyn-black-chocolate-stout-imageThis is one of my favorite seasonal releases.  We usually buy enough to last us well through the winter as the beer ages very well.

Russia’s not high on my list of favorite counties, but thanks to Catherine the Great we all now enjoy the famous Russian Imperial Stout.  Originally brewed strong and hoppy to withstand the sea voyage from England, the Russian Imperial Stout is now a cult favorite in the American craft beer scene.  Taking inspiration from the original English brewers, American craft brewers created there own unique twists on the popular style including barrel aging.  Come to think of it, the original was probably barrel aged, though not likely whiskey barrel aged.

Speaking of Russian Imperial Stouts, we just received 6 bottles per store of North Coast Old Rasputin Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout.  Get them both while you can…going fast!

The Hype – Peak Organic Super Fresh

peak-super-fresh-imageThis is not a beer that we always have in stock, but I thought it’d be a great beer to mention.  I’ve been on an IPL kick lately and was super pumped when this one came back in stock.  Super Fresh is billed as the assertive big brother of Peak’s dry hopped pilsner, Fresh Cut, which we do carry year-round.  Featuring Chinook, Citra, Centennial, and Simcoe hops, it truly is a “Wicked Dry-Hopped Pilsner”.  Super Fresh bursts with waves of delicious citrus and tropical hop flavor, while finishing clean and crisp.  According to our Peak sales rep, the brewers from Peak, Lawson’s, and Fiddlehead were blind tasting beers from their breweries and they all landed on Super Fresh.  Sometimes I’m amazed how long some of these great beers take to sell through.  We took 20 cases of Peak Organic Super Fresh 2 weeks ago and there are still a few cases hanging around at each store.

The Hype – Newburgh MegaBoss IPA

newburgh-megaboss-canFinally! Newburgh canned an IPA! And, they nailed it. After trying Hop Drop, their super juicy DIPA, I wondered why they hadn’t yet canned an IPA. From flavor to name and packaging, MegaBoss IPA delivers. Packed with 8 different hop varieties – Whole Leaf Delta, Simcoe, Amarillo, Sorachi Ace, Lemon Drop, Apollo, Cascade, Centennial – MegaBoss IPA is simultaneously spicy and tropical. The light, crisp body allows the citrus and tropical notes of these high alpha hops to pop. At 7% ABV, you can enjoy a few and still stay sharp.  If you need further validation, MegaBoss IPA won Gold at this year’s TAP NY Festival.

*The beers highlighted in these posts hold their own against all those “White Whales” we see coming into the market.  We’re doing something different to promote all the awesome beers that we regularly stock and that don’t get the hype they deserve.
