13 new beers around Philly this week

Taste the ReinBRO

Imprint (Montco) & Bolero Snort (Jersey)

Cans

Someone suggested a beer made with small colored candy, which turned the idea into a great one. We used 1,000 pounds of Skittles, less one 3-pound bag that we pounded while admiring a pallet of Skittles. Yes, when you order 1,000 pounds, they come in 3-pound bags. Aroma of freshly opened Skittles, melding into a soft mouthful of sun-warmed Skittles (without the stuff sticking to your teeth), with a crisp, slightly sweet but tart Skittles on a frosty day finish. 6.3% abv.


Clock Out

Iron Hill (All locations)

Cans

This clean, refreshing lager boasts strong notes of pine and citrus and has a smooth finish and a hint of bitterness.  Its balance of flavor and drinkability will be just thing you need after a long day, but not too much, because, after all, you’ll have to clock back in tomorrow. 5.5% abv.


Harness Bend

Mainstay Independent (Northern Liberties)

Cans

The first can release in our Knot Series. Decoction mashing and a traditional German Weisse wort combine with new world American hops to fuel our new wheat IPA. 5.7% abv.


Trust The Process

Evil Genius (Fishtown)

Cans

IPA brewed with 2-row and oat malts, then dry-hopped aggressively with Mosaic and Amarillo hops. Insanely aromatic and juicy, with big, bold notes of guava, lemon, pineapple, and clementine. 6.7% abv. Can release April 11.


Heapious

La Cabra (Chesco)

Cans

NE DIPA with an eye-watering amount of Idaho 7, Simcoe, Galaxy, lactose and good-good. No hops were boiled in the making of this beer. 8% abv.


Citrine Sky

Crime & Punishment (Brewerytown)

Draft

IPA brewed with barley, fermented cool with lager yeast, and hopped at a rate and in similar fashion to our IPAs with Idaho Gem and Chinook. Notes of dried pineapple, lemon haze, grapefruit rind, and Melogold mint. This is an absolutely lovely treat! 6.8% abv.


Red Clay

Braeloch (Chesco)

Draft

West coast-style single IPA for all the IPA lovers. This one features hops much more than malts and finishes dry. The bittering hops are a combination of Horizon, Cascade and Willamette, with an added load of Cascade at whirlpool to bring some aroma and flavors.


The Arrow

Axe & Arrow (Jersey)

Draft

This West Coast-style IPA has a medium body with slightly higher maltiness that is subdued by a strong but not overpowering bitterness with lots of earthy and spicy notes. Ekuanot, and Warrior hops come together to create a strong initial bitterness that gently fades. 7% abv.


Controlling the Pace

Neshaminy Creek (Buxco)

Cans

Brewed utilizing early fermentation dry hopping with Citra, Amarillo, and Lemondrop and a backbone of Flaked Oats and Barley, Malted Wheat, and some Lactose for good measure. 8.2% abv.


Jetro

Double Nickel (Jersey)

Cans

A heavily oated New England style IPA that we double dry-hopped with Galaxy and Azacca, making for a refreshing burst of passionfruit and apricot with a citrusy backdrop.  Back in August, we released Jetro originally in green cans for the start of the Birds season. We decided to bring it back, but this time in Red for the Phillies season. 5.6% abv.


No I in PA.

Pour Man’s (Ephrata)

Draft

This IPA is brewed with PA grown barley and hops. 6.3% abv.


Might As Well

Suburban (Chesco)

DraftNEIPA loaded with Citra and Columbus hops. This beer will pair well with a plate of nachos or the Double Dog Dare You as you’re watching the Phillies. 6.8% abv

 


Death Pony

Hollow Earth (Chesco)

Draft

Lightly carbonated and heavily hopped, this double IPA is packed with rye, Blanc and Mosaic hops, and just a hint of lime. This brew is dangerously soft but flavorful. 7.3% abv.
