Schilling Grapefruit – New Packaging. Grapefruit flavors tempered by a touch of apple sweetness, and a crisp, dry finish. 6% ABV / Auburn, WA / Availability: Plenty

Ommegang Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms – Seven Kingdoms is a marriage of a traditional Belgian-style wheat and a hop-forward American ale – but unlike so many of the marriages on the show, the resulting hoppy wheat is pleasant, playful and inspired. 6.9% ABV / Cooperstown, NY / Beeradvocate 88 / Availability: Decent
Uinta Birthday Suit – Brewed in celebration of Uinta’s 23rd anniversary, this American Sour Ale bares a lambic malt base, and a belgian yeat character.

Green Flash Pacific Gem – This Single Hopped Pale Ale is built on an English malt base of Golden Promise, 2-Row malted barley, and Caramalt to allow the hop qualities to shine through.
