Banded In Stock (MA + RI)
Banded Brewing’s Norweald Stout is back in stock in time for the cooler weather. Old English for ‘north woods,’ Norweald covers the spread of dark malt flavors perfectly: dark chocolate, smoke, burnt toffee, cream, and caramel. Its intense maltiness is balanced by just enough Centennial hops. ABV: 6.5%
Also back in the rotation: Banded’s ever-popular Veridian IPA (6.0%)
Et Tu, Brut IPA? (MA only)
JUST IN FROM MICHIGAN: Brewery Vivant’s Champion Brut IPA and Stone Fruit Sour. We’ve been waiting for this Brut to come east, and it’s on point – perfectly dry and hopped with Amarillo and Citra. 7% ABV
Also in from Vivant – Stone Fruit Sour, a wood aged sour ale with peaches, Balaton sweet-tart cherries, nectarines, plums and apricots. 5.7% ABV
Is This The Real Life? (MA + RI)
New from SingleCut: Is This The Real Life? DDH IPA. Created with new-age PNW hop varieties as well as a bit of NZ too. Soft, creamy mouthfeel with light malt support. Bright citrus, stone fruit and mild resin combine for a uniquely satisfying experience. Also in: Jån Alpine White Lager, Jenny Said DIPA, and 18-Watt IPA.
Proclamation Ethereous (MA + RI)
Proclamation’s Ethereous is juicy, dank and drinkable with massive melon, peach and citrus flavors. We’ve got cans and kegs. Both will sell out fast.
