Tallgrass Releasing Ethos IPA Cans

Tallgrass Brewing Company has announced that they'll be releasing a new beer called Ethos IPA in cans next month. Ethos is a heavily hopped IPA, coming in at 6.8% and 110 IBUs. It will be sold in 4-packs in 16 oz. pint cans and distributed throughout Tallgrass' distribution area. We're definitely looking forward to this one. 

Also, in true Tallgrass fashion the brewery has put out a video to go along with the upcoming release of Ethos IPA cans. Check it out... 

From the Tallgrass site:

"The beer foretold in legend. Six types of hops are gathered from the corners of the world to make this legendary brew. This is no earthly IPA. They will write ballads, build monuments, paint caves, and sacrifice goats to this beer. They will drink Ethos and dance to shake the heavens. The aroma is the harbinger of the tastes to come. Big, bright, and beautiful, this beer exceeds all expectations and grants wishes. Twice dry-hopped and brewed with the aid of a dark alliance from another realm, this beer bestows upon you all the complexity of the hops' flavors without overwhelming your senses. Ethos IPA is a gift to you, beer mortals. Drink it and fulfill your destiny."

Good People Brewing Debuts Cans
of Snake Handler Double IPA

empty Snake Handler cans on pallett

This week, Birmingham, Alabama's Good People Brewing Company filled, seamed, packaged, and shipped their initial canning run of Snake Handler Double IPA. Cans hits area shelves yesterday. This is the third canned offering from the state's first, and so far only, canning craft brewery. Thanks to Gabe Harris, President of Alabama's grassroots organization, Free the Hops, for being at the brewery on canning day and taking all of these great pictures showing how empty cans on highly-stacked palletts come to life after being filled with that liquid we all love so much. Great work, we can't wait to try the finished product!

cans of Snake Handler go around the bend

Something that makes Snake Handler so special, besides being a very good Double IPA, is that it wasn't that long ago that a beer like this was illegal for brewers to produce within the borders of the state. Something most of us don't even think about since a vast majority of states don't place such limiting restrictions on beer.

cans being filled

In May of 2009, the Free The Hops' Gourmet Beer Bill was signed which allowed brewers in the state to produce beers over 6% (Snake Handler clocks in at 9.3%). It remains essentially illegal to homebrew in the state and sales of containers over 16 oz. are prohibited. Organizations like Free the Hops are fighting for more relaxed laws that will help to promote better beer in Alabama and to allow for the state's brewers to have more freedoms.

Along with being the third canned beer from Good People Brewing, Snake Handler is the first American Double/Imperial IPA to be canned in the Southeast. There are currently 17 versions of this style being canned.

About this beer (from the Good People Brewing site):

"A big, joyous celebration of all things hoppy (5 different varities). Large flavors and aroma of pine, citrus, flowers, spice, pineapple, and grassiness complimented with a touch of biscuit and caramel backbone. Our most requested beer." 9.3% ABV, 103 IBUS

Brewery Vivant to Release Kludde

Michigan's Brewery Vivant has just finishing canning "Kludde" their first "Brewer's Reserve Limited Release" beer. This Belgian Style Dark Ale gets it's name from Belgian folklore and refers to a "water spirit which roams the Flemish country side." Judging by the can design, and what we've read online, "Kludde" is not necessarily a nice character. However, this beer sure sounds nice. It weighs in at 9.5% and is brewed with star anise and green raisins.

From the Brewery Vivant site:

"Watch out for Kludde! Belgian folklore’s water spirit who roams the Flemish countryside in the form of a monstrous black dog… This monstrous ale is made with green raisins, star anise and dark Belgian candi sugar. Notes of dried plum, fig and chocolate mingle with the complexity of our two house yeast strains. Let Kludde warm you up…"

Four-packs of Kludde go on sale at the brewery tomorrow and to area retailers in the coming weeks.

Super fresh cans of Kludde

From what we can gather it looks like Brewery Vivant will be utilizing a can that was designed to allow them to simply affix a sticker that designates the beer inside. They're the fifth brewery to go this way with their seasonal/limited releases.

Anderson Valley Brewing to Release Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout in Cans

Anderson Valley Brewing Company has just announced that they'll be releasing their Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout in cans. The award-winning stout will be available from January 1st through March 31st. This will be the California brewery's fifth canned release and their third seasonal can.

More about Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout from the AVBC site:

"Barney Flats is the Boontling name for Hendy Woods State Park, a deep redwood forrest with a tree canopy so thick it can seem like nighttime at high noon.

It is no wonder that Anderson Valley Brewing Company named its deep, rich, dark oatmeal stout after Barney Flats. Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout is full-bodied with a decadent mocha character and smooth mouthfeel balanced by a subtle hop bite. Near and dear to our hearts, Barney Flats was our first gold medal winner in 1990, but recently took bronze at the 2010 World Beer Cup.

Great on its own or as the perfect desert beer. Pair with chocolate and you’ll never have anything else.

As with all of our products, Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout is never sterile filtered nor heat pasteurized."

Style - Oatmeal Stout
Strength - 5.7% ABV
Bitterness - 13 IBU

“It’s not just shy sluggin gorms neemer.”
