Just the other day, I was telling you about how the changing seasons bring with them all the different Seasonal craft beers we enjoy as they make their annual returns. As the weather warms that, of course, means it’s time for most people’s taste buds to leave Stouts, Porters and other malt-heavy beers behind (for the most part) and start seeking out crisper, lighter (in some cases), refreshing, hoppier beers.
For me, the tipping point each year is the annual Underberg Back In Black Stout Fest at Brouwer’s Cafe during Seattle Beer Week. It’s sort of the last hurrah for the year before the Seasonal changeover. Granted, that changeover came a bit earlier this year, since Seattle Beer Week began a week earlier than in previous years. That doesn’t mean I never drink Stouts in the Summer, but far less so than in the colder months.
With all this in mind, it’s time for the annual return of Beak Tweaker Citrus IPA from Black Raven Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor). This hoppy and refreshing Summer Seasonal will help quench your thirst all Summer long.
Here is a bit more information about this release from Black Raven Brewing Company:
BeakTweaker Citrus IPA
Release date: Friday, May 19th 2017
The BeakTweaker is Black Raven’s popular seasonal IPA creation. Built on a firm base of barley and rye malts, the BeakTweaker features bold citrus flavors and aromatics. A bright bitterness combines with citrus hop characteristics accented by the addition of earthy black lemon, orange peel and lemon peel.
Taproom draft and 22oz bottles to go $6.99 + Tax
Also available for growler fills.
I’m always a fan of beers that have some rye in the malt bill and, of course, I’m also a big hophead. So Beak Tweaker is right up my alley. Look for it starting this Friday at The Raven’s Nest (Black Raven’s Taproom in Redmond) and on tap and in bottles soon at your local craft beer retailer.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
