New Beers This Week
(Beer Locations Noted)
Santa Fe Freestyle Pilsner – The assertively hopped Freestyle pils exudes the flavor and the aroma of the classic Saaz hop (a tribute to “the original” pilsner), while maintaining enough body to balance but not overpower this hop’s pleasant, spicy tone. 5.5% ABV / Santa Fe, NM / Availability: Decent / SOLA Only
Santa Fe Gold –With the right blend of two-row Pale, Pilsner, Vienna, and Caramel malts, this easy drinker is smooth, satisfying, and light-bodied without the need for adjuncts like rice or corn like the “big guys” use. The balance of Tettnang and Amarillo hops go a long way to give this sessionable beer the complex character you’ve come to expect from a craft brewery. 4% ABV / Santa Fe, NM Availability: Decent / SOLA Only
Wasatch White Label – The zest of orange rides side-saddle with coriander to create a beer that’s perfect for riding the open-range – or lounging in the backyard. 6% ABV / Park City, UT / Availability: Good / SOLA Only
Wasatch Raspberry Wheat – We love raspberries. We love beer. Joining the two seemed natural, and like other natural things to do, it spawned something beautiful. 4% ABV / Park City, UT / Availability: Good / SOLA Only
Deep Ellum Lager – This crushable rye lager is our throwback to great show beer. Inspired by soft pilsner malt, we use rye malt for flavor and spice it up with hops from the Czech Republic. Deep Ellum Lager has a distinct light body, earthy, and floral aroma that will leave you thristing for an encore. Rock out with your lager out! 4.8% ABV / Dallas, TX / Availability: Good / Both Locations
Sierra Nevada Ovila White 6pk – The monks at the Abbey of New Clairvaux hold themselves to a higher standard. So when they challenged us to create a beer that transcends all others, our brewers blended Old World tradition with modern-day mastery to deliver the perfect expression of Belgian witbier worthy of a goblet but comfortable in a pint. 5.3% ABV / Chico, CA / Availability: Decent / SOLA Only
Founder’s Rubeus 9pk – Optimizing the flavor of fresh raspberries added at multiple stages during fermentation, this stunning berry red masterpiece is the perfect balance of sweet and tart. No question about it, with a hefty malt bill. 5.7% ABV / Grand Rapids, MI / Availability: Limited / SOLA Only
Harpoon Frost Hammer – Frost Hammer Doppelbock. Deep, dark, rich and rewarding. Our take on German tradition. This is one mighty, malty bock-style beer. 10.7% ABV / Boston, MA / Availability: Limited / SOLA Only
Uinta Crooked Line Birthday Suit: 24th Anniversary Cherry Sour –24th Anniversary sour cherry blonde ale brewed with tart Montmorency cherries. This celebratory slice of ale is a pleasantly tart, well balanced golden beauty with hints of lemon peel, graham cracker, and cherry pie. 6.2% ABV / Salt Lake City, UT / Availability: Limited / Both Locations
Alaskan Pilot Series Raspberry Wheat – Years of local demand through Alaskan’s Rough Draft program of draft-only releases and a Silver medal from the 2008 Great American Beer Festival make Alaskan Raspberry Wheat the perfect brew to launch the Alaskan Pilot Series. 6.5% ABV / Juneau, AK / Availability: Limited / SOLA Only
Gigantic/3 Floyds Axes of Evil – Beer #3 in the endless series of limited edition artist and artisan beers. Gigantic and Three Floyds unleash this true weapon of mass distraction. Citrus and tropical hoppyness lead to fill malt flavour from proper English malt, kilned over Welsh coal. Brewed for those of us that live and die in the Timbers Army and Section 8. 6% ABV / Portland, OR / Availability: Limited / Both Locations
Gigantic The City Never Sleeps – Highly rated Imperial Black Saison. Hard to describe, easy to drink. 7.3% ABV / Portland, OR / Availability: Limited / Both Locations
