The sun will come out and so will these stellar spring beers that celebrate the season with notes of peach, apricot, vanilla, and ginger.
Dogfish Head’s spring release is a fruit-forward beer for hop-lovers. This American IPA is brewed with pilsner and crystal malts with supporting flavor coming from sweet and lush apricot juice. It’s one of Dogfish’s most popular seasonal beers and the thirst-quenching fruit and cedar notes are the reason why.
Sierra Nevada invites beer fans to the brewery every week to create a collaborative beer. Beer Camp Hoppy Lager is the result of the past year’s brew fan visits. This brew highlights one of the small-batch standouts, a hop-happy lager that reimagines Sierra Nevada’s collaboration with Ballast Point.
Saint Arnold Brewing calls their Spring Bock the laziest of all their beers. It takes eight weeks to ferment and age and is made with five types of malt for a rich, sweet, complex flavor that earned it the Silver Medal at the World Beer Cup in 1998. It’s a fan favorite every year, and this year’s bock is as anticipated as ever.
Weyerbacher is celebrating the easy Sunday morning of spring with their new stout blend. Sunday Morning Stout is another of the season’s bourbon barrel-aged stouts, this time with the addition of coffee and whiskey. It bottles at around 11.8 percent ABV, so don’t expect to do much after a few of these come Sunday afternoon.
