Anchor Brewing Company is releasing the fifth brew in their Zymaster series, Harvest One American Pale Ale.
For the Zymaster Series No. 5: Harvest One American Pale Ale, which sits at 7.2% ABV, "Anchor Brewing decided to feature an experimental new hop variety." Apparently the hop is brand new, unnamed, and will provide a "uniquely Anchor twist to Zymaster No. 5."
The hoppy aroma is supposed to be "reminiscent of tree-ripened peaches and fresh melon," which makes me excited to try it. Here is a link to restaurants, retailers, and bars that typically carry Anchor's Zymaster series.
Triple Voodoo, with their new head brewer, is releasing a Belgian Stout called King Leopold. The beer was brewed with both American and European dark malts, and was fermented with a Belgian yeast strain to provide that Belgian twist.
The beer is 7% ABV, and will be available until the end of the year in 22oz bottles or on draught. I'm not sure I've ever had a Belgian Stout, but it sounds intriguing and I'm looking forward to giving it a try. Find Triple Voodoo's beer here.
