News from the Beertopia side of the weather…
OOHHHHs and AHHHHS are abound this week for new brews!!
  • The group of brewers from Schmaltz Brewing have sent us 2 quirky new brews. The first of which is their Funky Jewbelation. This barrel aged concoction is very unique. Aromas of sour cherries coincide with tangy sourness. The palate is just as complex. Woody, fruited cherry, bourbon and alcohol are all crammed into this 22oz bottle. The second offering is their Re-Jewvenator. This is a Belgian style dubbel AND a Euro dopplebock. Not sure how this is accomplished but never the less. Aromas of figs (maybe Fig Newtons??) and raisins. Sweet on the palate with chocolate and toffee making their way up. Two very interesting new offerings I must say…
  •  The next group of beers is a new brewery to Nebraska! Wild Onion brews are another canned offering! They have sent us Jack Stout, Hop Slayer Imperial IPA, PAddy Pale Ale and Phat Chance Blonde Ale. Stop by the store this Thursday from 4-6pm to sample these brews out!!
  • Lagunitas and their infinite hoppy wisdom has released their new seasonal, Under Cover Investigation Shut Down Ale. Yes a beer name to be reckoned with. This double IPA is a bit on the mellow side for Lagunitas. Aromas are somewhat subdued. But don’t let that fool you at all. The flavors kick right in with consistent hoppiness and excellent bready mouthfeel. This beer should be a great addition to the upcoming warmer months.
  • Lakefront 25th Anniversary ale is new in 4 packs. This Imperial Cherry Stout is wicked good. Bitter dark chocolate and sweet cocoa nibs make the cherries peek through perfectly. Like an evening on the back porch watching the full moon develop on the eastern horizon…wow, did I just say that??!! This really hits my spot, if ya know what I mean!! Yes I am drinking one as I type this message. Could you tell?
  • New Belgium has made a new Summer Seasonal. The brew is called Rolle Bolle. Odd, but very clever. The name is of a Belgian  game that is basically horseshoes on wheels. Anyway, the beer is a pale ale of sorts that is very easy to drink. Soursop and monkfruit are designed into this brew. The palate is refreshing and extremely simple. Hints of fruit on the nose and cracker dryness on the palate. Check out the game on You Tube www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYiLSsjxzQw.
 Have a great week and we will see you tomorrow for the Wild Onion sampling here in the store from 4-6pm.
