There are a bunch of new beers that have recently hit liquor store shelves that look to be worth seeking out.
I haven’t had any of these yet, but, based on their descriptions, they seem like beers I’d like to try.
The first is from one of my favorite breweries, the Mystic Brewery out of Chelsea. They have released the first of the Wigglesworth Ale Series.
The Wigglesworth Series, developed by homebrewer Alastair Heweit, who is from England. The series will featured traditional ales with “no special twists, no unusual ingredients, just straightforward presentations of the classic styles.”
The first beer in the series is the Lord Falconer, an oatmeal stout, which is bottled in special 500ml bottles.
Also knew is the second in the Narragansett Beer’s Private Stock Series – the Imperial Bohemian Pilsner, which is available in bombers.
The 8.6 percent ABV pilsner is brewed with Pale, Pilsner, Wheat and Cara Blonde malt, along with Northern Brewer and Hallerteau hops, and comes in at 35 IBUs.
The Imperial Pilsner should cost between $5.99 and $6.99.
The Somerville Brewing Company, aka Slumbrew’s latest beer, the Naked Hopularity Black IPA. This 8 percent ABV black IPA is brewed with Centenial, Simcoe and Zythos hops.
When black IPAs first came out, I loved the style. Then I got bored with the style, but I’m back in an upward swing, so I’ll be seeking out Naxed Hopularity soon.
Finally, Smaltz has released its brand new beer as part of its Limited Engagement Barrel-Aged Series – the Funky Jewbelation.
The Funky Jewbelation is a blend of six ales and lagers from the Shmaltz lineup, aged in bourbon and rye whiskey barrels.
It comes in at a hefty 9.4 percent ABV, and it blends Jewbelation, Origin Pomegranate Strong Ale, Bittersweet Lenny’s R.I.P.A., Messiah Nut Brown Ale, Coney Island Lager and Albino Python.
That’s a lot of different flavors that I have trouble believing would blend together right, but I want to try it to see if it does.
