Whiteout Wit Beer. Made with Sorachi hops and spiced with fresh lemon peel, Indian coriander, and black peppercorns. Aged in French oak Chardonnay barrels. 6% ABV & 20 IBUs.
I got to taste a sample in early February, and I can't wait to grab a few bottles of the finished product.
Speaking of new releases, Kenai River Brewing Company has created a new American Wheat Ale with lots of hop flavor, and they need your help to name it! Just stop by the brewery for a taste and then give them a name; you have to do this in person, no electronic submissions. The deadline is Friday, May 6th, so don't miss out on your shot at beer immortality.
Finally, St. Elias Brewing Company will be having another shindig on Thursday evening, May 5, to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. There will be live music and a new cask-conditioned beer released, a special kolsch, that was primed with agave syrup and dry-hopped with Pearle hops. Sounds like it should make an excellent chaser for tequila shots. Look for another new release next Thursday, May 12th, as well. They'll be tapping a cask of Williwaw IPA that's been dry-hopped with HopUnion's proprietary hop blend, Falconer's Flight. These cask-conditioned offerings only last a single night, so don't miss them.
Well, that's all I have time for this week. Look for more reviews next week for several new and exciting brews.
Until Next Time, Cheers!
