Spring Beer 2013!



Fort Collins Brewery

Maibock – The only technical spring seasonal, the bock style is brewed in fall, lagered all winter, and cracked open in spring.  This maibock (or May-Bock) has everything one would expect it to have; smooth Munich malts with hints of toffee and hops!  ABV – 6.4%

Samuel Adams

Double Bock – This beer has everything a bock has, only more!  In typical Sam Adams fashion, there is a half pound of malt in EVERY bottle.  Great if you like the one particular malt they used, not great if you don’t.  ABV – 9.5%

Oskar Blues Brewery

Gubna Imperial IPA – A veritable garden in a can, the style of over-hopping pale ales is incredibly popular right now.  There is, of course, no gray area with this kind of beer.  Either you love it or hate it when your tongue turns green!  ABV – 10.0%

Spoetzl Brewery

Shiner FM 966 Farmhouse Ale – Farmhouse ales, or Saison style ales if you want to sound fancy, derive their sharp flavors from delicately balanced yeast.  Because of the time-consuming and painstaking task of appropriately balancing these beers, the Saison style is rarely seen these days.  However, the folks down in Shiner, Texas have crafted a wonderful, semi-dry, peppercorn and citrus ale!  Grab this seasonal selection before it’s gone!  ABV – 5.7%

New Belgium Brewing

Dig – This pale ale boasts a smoother, less hoppy finish than an IPA.  The flavor points of tropical and citrus fruits and grassy undertones balance beautifully in this new-to-Michigan beer.  Crisp and refreshing!  ABV – 5.6%

Great Lakes Brewing

Conway’s Irish Ale – Red/Irish ales are very popular around St. Patty’s Day and this bold Irish ale has everything you need to wake up on a stranger’s bathroom floor the following day!  Similar to MIP’s Brik Irish Red, Conway’s features fewer malt types, but a lot more of everything else!  ABV – 6.5%
