Fall Beer Releases

Who loves fall beer releases? WE love fall beer releases! And we've got a couple of dandies for you thirsty beer lovers. 

First up is our November Beer of the Month, Kurios Black Belgian Stout Lager. Created with a rich base of Pils, Chocolate, and Midnight Wheat malts, Kurios Black gets a special edge from Saigon cinnamon additions, Belgian candy syrup, and tart, tropical hibiscus flowers in the boil. But then...then. We aged this bad boy in bourbon barrels for A WHOLE YEAR. A whole year spent quietly maturing in bourbon-and-oak paradise, deep in the far reaches of our cooler. Need more? After all that, we finished it off with Michigan tart cherry juice. Mmhmm. It is dark, rich, complex, and so very intriguing. One could even say it is quite...curious. Get it til it's gone, but especially in November, when it's yours for $1 off every Monday. 

Hunger in the Hunt Triple IPL is finally back! This huge beer is brewed with four different hops (Cascade, Chinook, Warrior, and Columbus), and oh boy, is it juicy-fresh and delicious. The last time we made this, we barely caught our breath and it was gone, gone, gone! So if you were despairing the end of hoppy season with the arrival of cold air, fear not: this is one hop monster that will keep you warm and toasty at 11%+ abv. 

Later in November, another delicious iteration of our Session IPL, Green Thumb -- this time, Nelson Sauvin hops are front and center. This New Zealand varietal is prized for its distinctive flavaroma of passionfruit, crushed grapes, and white wine. New Zealand really has a lock on these bangin' hops, and we can't wait to finish this one up and get it into your glasses. 

Next up, it's the same winter lager you know and love, but it's got a new name: Pastoral Winter Lager. Fun fact: this was actually the beer's original name. We hope this beer evokes images of cozy fireplaces, tucked-in farmhouses, and rolling hills of snow. It's sure to warm you up with a special blend of pale, crystal, dark, and wheat malts with just enough European and American bittering hops to provide a necessary foil. The brew is warming, smooth, and flavorful without being cloying or bready. It'll keep you cozy and help you celebrate one of the best parts about winter: sitting on our butts in a cozy place with friends and family. Psst..the Tap Room gets pretty cozy once the snow flies ;)

Last but certainly not least, everyone's favorite German Pilsner is set to return in November! Smooth, drinkable, and refreshing, Barenmarder German Pils also features a hop backbone that keeps it crisp and zippy. Grab a pint with a hot pretzel + brown mustard for an "authentic" German experience. 

We'll keep you updated with release dates as they approach! Until then, prost!
