News from Beertopia…with Spring here(no joke!), the warmer weather beers are continuing to arrive.
But some big hitters have also made their appearance and a couple have made a repeat showing!
First, the seasonals..
  • Point Nude Beach-well, unless you are doin’ the Polar plunge today, you may want to wait for that first 70-something day to enjoy this crisp wheat from Wisconsin, and tasty it will be! The perfect antidote to wool sweaters and stouts, no clothes and Nude Beach!
  • Great Divide Heyday-a Belgian inspired beauty with an addition of oats and raw wheat, the kiss of coriander in this slightly cloud pour will have you smacking your lips as you watch your waiter(or significant other) deliver the pot of moules and frites to your seaside cafe table…..ah, dream on!
  • Thomas Creek Vanilla Ale-from sunny S. Carolina comes this repeat favorite of vanilla-lovers all over, a sessionable 4.8% cream ale with just the right amount of spice..perfect for that post-picnic lawn chair, or a bass boat on an Iowa farm pond.
  • Tallgrass Ethos-now this is one hopped-up son-of-a-gun! Tallgrass swings and smacks the hops right out of the park with this massive 110 IBU “West Coast style” IPA..and reflects the “Ethos” of the hop revolution happening in the Great Plains town of Manhattan, Kansas. We got a very limited amount for the rollout in Nebraska, but don’t despair, more is coming soon. It is sure to more than please those who are constantly seeking the hoppiest beers out there.
  • Weyerbacher Riserva-now for the wild ale fans out there comes this Brett/Raspberry puree oak monster, aged for over a year, at 11.4% I am salivating just thinking about how fabulous this would be with a big New York cheescake..and then a good cigar.
  • Weyerbacher Heresy-making a much anticipated return, this is the Old Heathen Imperial Stout aged on bourbon barrels..did I hear moans of ecstasy from the cellar?? On a night like tonight, the aromas of vanilla, cocoa, and coffee blend with the whiskey for one truly extrordinary tipple, a beer to get passionate about…
  • Great Divide 19th Anniversary-out of bounds, this 10.2% ale is brewed with birch syrup, and then aged on birch!!! Like a Northwoods dream come true, this luscious beer should pair up well with some spicy foods, and, a camping trip among the birch forests this coming summer!
  • Rogue Voodoo-it’s back!! smoky, maple-y, and bacon-y…if you missed out the first time, get into what you have been mssing!
Thats about all folks, but wait!! With keg season here, we have some smokin’ deals! Boulevard Irish Ale 1/2 Barrel $75,  Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye $110. Get these while they last, at these prices, they won’t last long!
Stop in and meet some new faces @ Beertopia-we all really enjoy meeting and helping our customers each and every day!!! I will be enjoying some of these beers back in front of the fireplace this weekend by the way it looks today, have a great weekend from Beertopia!
