The BlueClaws Craft Brew House is back for another season and we have the rundown of craft beers that will be available during the first BlueClaws homestand – April 14-20.
Note – These beers are not available for $1 during Thirsty Thursdays and are only available in the Craft Brew House down the right field line.
New Belgium Ranger IPA: Bring out the hops with RANGER IPA! This clear amber INDIA PALE ALE beauty bursts at the starting gate with an abundance of hops: Cascade (citrus), Chinook (floral/citrus), and Simcoe (fruity) lead off the beer, with Cascade added again for an intense dry hop flavor. Brewed with pale and dark caramel malts that harmonize the hop flavor from start to finish, Ranger is a sessionable splendor for all you hopinistas.
Illusive Traveler Grapefruit Shandy: Traveler Grapefruit Shandy is a deceptively delicious wheat beer made with real grapefruit. It delivers a bright and satisfying citrus aroma and flavor, then quickly disappears, leaving you searching for another.
Ommegang Game of Thrones 3-Eyed Raven: Three-Eyed Raven harbors a deep dark brown, almost jet-black color with a light tan head. Yeast forward aromas are packed with peppery phenolics and fruity esters. Despite what you might expect from a dark hued beer, the flavor brings to mind a traditional saison: a light, malty body with a hint of sweetness, and roast accentuated by herbal and spicy hops, yet underpinned by pleasant yeastiness. Finish is crisp, with lingering notes of herbal hops and Belgian yeast
Shiner Bock Prickly Pear: Doubly good in triple digits, unique summer seasonal is made with the fruit of the prickly pear, a cactus native to Shiner, Texas. With a tart, citrusy flavor and a crisp finish, it’s the best use of cactus yet.
Boulevard 80 Acre: With roots in two of today’s most popular brewing styles, 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat Beer is the result of careful cultivation by their brewers and cellarmen. Their efforts to craft a hybrid yielded a bumper crop of flavor; a delightfully distinctive ale with the aroma of an IPA and the refreshing taste of a wheat beer.
Blue Moon White IPA: For White IPA the brew masters wanted to combine the citrus flavors of an IPA with the smooth, balanced malts of a Belgian white Belgian-Style Wheat Ale. They began by experimenting with hop after hop until they found the perfect combination of four hops, including a rare German hop called Huell Melon. The result is a pronounced citrus and fruity hop taste, perfectly balanced by wheat, coriander, and orange peel. Bringing the best of two styles together to craft an IPA with a unique twist. Hoppy. Unfiltered. Balanced.
