Ninkasi Releases Spring IPA Variety Pack

There’s no doubt that, in the craft beer World, the IPA is king.  We’ve got regular IPAs, double IPAs, Red IPAs, fruity and juicy IPAs and just about every other type of IPA you could imagine.  The IPA ‘style’ category could probably use a bit of updating to keep up with all the sub-styles emerging.

With so many choices, selecting an IPA can be a daunting task.  Ninkasi Brewing Company wants to make that choice a bit easier for you so, starting this month, they’re releasing the Spring IPA Variety 12-pack, which includes four different Ninkasi IPAs (3 in bottles and one in cans).

Lowercase Brewing Prepares For Their 4th Anniversary

 

Are you ready to party?  Lowercase Brewing Company certainly is.  Their taproom on Airport Way South in Georgetown turned one just this past November, but the brewery itself (still in South Park) has been around for nearly four years now.

I won’t re-hash the story of how Lowercase wound up with a brewery in South Park but a taproom in Georgetown here, but if you read my previous article (at the link above), it will explain the situation.  It actually wound up being a good thing for Lowercase because their Georgetown taproom is larger than their old one and in a better location to get more traffic.

In preparation for their upcoming 4th Anniversary celebration on January 20th (4 – 10 pm), Lowercase has brewed up 4 special beers (for 4 years): iRISH Stout, Strata IPA, Barrel-Aged Winter Warmer and Hop Snow Hazy IPA.  There’ll also be live music and BBQ.

Reuben’s Brews Reveals Their 2018 Release Calendar

Do you have a favorite craft brewery?  I get asked this question quite a bit, but I’ve found it virtually impossible to pick just one brewery as my overall favorite.  I have a whole list of favorites (as well as a list of breweries I tend to dislike/avoid), but narrowing it down to just one?  Nope.  I can’t do it.

If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that I regularly post a list of some of my favorite breweries (on ‘Follow Friday’) but, again, it’s a list rather than just one brewery.  Each time I post my list of favorites, however, Reuben’s Brews is included.  Ever since they first launched back in 2012, I’ve been a fan.  Their Rye beers and barrel aged stouts are always excellent and they’ve just been killing it lately with all of their different IPA releases.
