Seasonal beers - spring 2016

Farm Side Saison – Unita Brewing Company, Salt Lake City, UT

Time to enjoy those cold balmy sub-spring afternoons with a nice Saison? Rumor has it, that our friends at Unita have the “hop pop” for you. Farm side strikes the palate with a slight fruit burst (It is a Saison...). A great primer as we wait for the arrival of spring! Come on out Mr. Sun! Show us your shiny face! Great patio Saison for the beginner, nice and simple with a dry finish. Touches of grape must and tartness. ABV of 5.6%

Overdub “Session” IPA – Fort George Brewing, Astoria, OR

One of my personal favorites! Fort George has created another delicious craft beer for us beer “geeks” Much to discuss with this IPA, fruit varieties galore. Grapefruit, Mango and Papaya, sounds like a fruit salad! Very impressive taste and mouthfeel. From beginning to end, this IPA smells of citrus, not to biter and no lingering dirt after taste. If you enjoy hops and aroma, this beer is for you. At 4.5% ABV, be sure to bring your DD as more than a couple is well worth the effort.

Grateful Dead American Beauty – Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Milton, DE

Hey, Deadheads! A wonderful collection of barley, hops, malts, honey and granola—yes, granola. This one won’t last long! At 9% ABV, stories of old concert-goers are sure to emerge! Yay for the folks at Dogfish! This double IPA hits all notes of the palate. Feel the taste that all the earth has to offer: pine, citrus, honey, almonds, oranges and bread. A complex beer that is easy to drink and enjoy.
