Greetings from Beertopia!  News from the beer front is steady as she goes…Summer beers continue to make their way into the store,
and happily it feels much nicer than it did this time last week! So without further ado, here is what is new for the week…
  • Anchor Summer-not your average wheat beer, Anchor uses a 50% blend of malted wheat, plus a top fermenting ale yeast that adds a clean taste and fluffy head, perfect for that mushroom-hunting road trip to your favorite sun-dappled glen…
  • Wasatch Summerbrau Lager-ah, a Utah-born Czech Pilsener! How’s that for your global village? Well, this crisp,clean and slightly bitter lager delivers all you need to “Check” out around a campfire while stargazing this summer, can I come along?
  • August Schell Lakemaid-well, what can I say…who wouldn’t want to catch a Mermaid? or rather, a tasty fresh-water lager brewed in conjunction with Rapala, the fishing gurus of the Northwoods lakes. Imagine yourself, trolling lazily and reeling in one(or more) of these? Let’s go fishin’!!
  • Lucky Bucket Flip Flop-politicians need not apply! This ale brewed with strawberry concentrate is pure fun! Light with clean strawberry essence, this is sure-fire lake and swimming hole beer, grab your flip flops and let’s GO!
  • Funkwerks Solenna-Yes, Funkwerks fans, a new one! Solenna uses a traditional yeast strain, adds Brettanomyces and German hops..tatsing this today brought out balanced subtle Brett-influenced hop aromas, then followed with some cinnamon, and to me a gathering mild heat on the tongue. This beer will be a neat pairing with some Indian onion kulcha, a very appealing appetizer beer. Try some starting Thursday!
That about wraps up things up from here, but starting this week, I want to pick one random beer to highlight each week, something in season, or just a whim of ours here in the store, sooooo, this weekWeekly Winner!
  • Wittekerke Wit Beer-from the good folks at Brouwerij Bavik, this store favorite is a pale Belgian wheat..lemony,straw colored deliciousness in a 6-pack of cans. This will be your canoeing favorite when it gets to 90F, and it is time to get it stocked up, the Niobrara beckons, and unlike the old timers like me who had to be content with a lot of crappy beers on our floatrips, now you can enjoy pure delight from Belgium, in Nebraska!
Next week, American Craft Beer Week May 13-18 will feature daily tastings in-store with all of our distributors….from 4-6 nightly with some of the highlights being new seasonals from Big Sky, Tommyknocker, Okoboji, New Belgium, Summit and MORE!! So, mark your calendars and get down here (’cause we don’t want to drink it all!)
