New Beers in the Cooler!
February 9, 2015
We love getting in new product! Keeps us on our toes and trying new things. This week we welcome into the fold varieties by Anchor Brewing and Evil Twin. Here's what they look like and a bit about the breweries...
Anchor is America’s first and oldest craft brewery, with roots dating back to the California gold rush. Today, beers are handmade from an all-malt mash in their traditional copper brewhouse. The process combines the time-honored art of classical craft brewing with carefully applied, state-of-the-art modern methods. A few Anchor beers you'll see in bottles are:
Anchor IPA - Anchor IPA is made with 2-row barley malt and fresh whole-cone hops, its bright amber color, distinctively complex aroma, spiky bitterness, malty depth, and clean finish unite to create a uniquely flavorful, memorable, and timeless craft IPA.
Anchor Porter - A blend of specially roasted pale, caramel, chocolate, and black malts, along with our top-fermenting yeast, creates complexity without bitterness. The brew is hopped at a high rate, and naturally carbonated. The result is dark in the glass, but surprisingly light on the palate. -
Anchor BigLeaf Maple - BigLeaf Maple Autumn Red™ is a quaffable, well-balanced American red ale with character. Its malty complexity and coppery color come from a combination of two caramel malts, pale malt, and a hint of maple syrup.
Evil Twin Brewing
Good grief! We love the idea of this brewery, but they have a knack for giving very little information. Here's what we know...They are always making new beers (exciting!), and they make them at other people's breweries (huh?), and they have "All good intentions to disturb, disorder and enlighten you with unforgettable beer after beer." (ok, we can live with that.)
Here are some of the beers we've gotten in from Evil Twin: (funky names, right?)
- Ashtray Heart
- Ryan and the Beaster Bunny
We love the names here, but they tell us nothing about the beers. I guess there's only one way to find out - taste them. Once we figure out what the heck these are, we'll let you know. And if you figure it out before we do...let us know.
