News from the Beertopia side of things…
This week has been a lucrative week for new brewskies!!

This light lager is spiced with strawberry and has notes of toffee and citrus. 2.)Beer Flower Wheat. This wheat based beer is flavored with Hibiscus flowers. 3.) Magnificent Seven is a double IPA.

  • Bass IPA is a new offering! This English style IPA is really quite good. Smooth hop flavor coincide with sweet English malts. Quite a nice offering from a very sustained brewery!
  • Tommy Knocker made this seasonal last year and was a huge hit. This Saison is really good again this year! Sweet grain notes accompany Belgian sweetness. Get here before this one is gone!!
  • Goose Island sure is renowned for their high alcohol stouts huh? Well, the Summertime Kolsch style beer sure is a very fly under the radar beer for me. This style is so easy to drink and enjoy. Light, crisp and just enough hops to ask for another on the Summer months that are hopefully ahead if us.
We also gathered another few kegs of the New Belgium Dig. 1/15.5 gallon keg and 2/5.2 gallon kegs. Call the store to get yours today!!
That is about it for this week. Have a great week and see you all very soon!
