Peaks and Pints New Beers In Stock 8.20.19

Welcome to late August! The end-of-summer month bridges three big seasons: fresh hops, pumpkin beers and Oktoberfest lagers, all represented in Peaks and Pints New Beers In Stock 8.20.19, among others. Cheers!

Anderson Valley Brewing

FALL HORNIN PUMPKIN ALE: Brewed with pumpkin and spices, this Anderson Valley beer hits the nose with all of the obvious pie spices, followed by toasty malt with all the spices holding their own without one being overly dominant. It’s well balanced with lovely caramel malt sweetness, notes of toffee and brown sugar leading into a bitter, dry finish. 6%

Breakside Brewery

LOVE BUBBLES IPA: A variation on Breakside Brewery‘s brut IPA (read: extra light body and dry finish) with Strata hops taking the lead over Lemondrop and Mandarina for a beer redolent of gooseberry, passionfruit, and Meyer lemon zest. 6.3% ABV

E9 Brewing

STATIONS WIT: E9 Brewery canned their sister Engine House No. 9 restaurant house witbier. Brewed with late addition orange peel and spices, Stations Wit keeps true to witbier style with classic Belgian yeast phenolics and wheat notes. 5.3%

Lagunitas Brewing

DARK SWAN: Experimentally hopped sour ale fermented with dark red wine grapes, Dark Swan swims up with an uniquely deep and rich purple hue and continues swimming for a long tart finish. A signature Lagunitas healthy dose of experimental dry hops keeps faint hops on the nose. 8.5%

Left Hand Brewing

OKTOBERFEST: Märzen lager brewed true to style, giving tribute to its German roots. Left Hand Brewing begins brewing in the late spring and it takes a full two months to reach the brewery’s lagered desire. Moreover, the brewers perform a traditional but lengthy decoction mash process, boiling portions of the mash only 40 percent at a time. The laborious method takes up to 8 hours but is key to Oktoberfest’s copper color and notes of warm biscuit reminiscent of home and fall tradition. Oktoberfest begins with the toasty sweetness of the malt up front while the noble pedigree hops allow for a dry crisp finish. 6.6%

Payette Brewing

GRANNY GEAR HAZY IPA: Payette Brewing‘s Granny Gear leans more toward a milkshake IPA with citrus cream and some sweetness on the nose, followed by sweet notes of vanilla citrus and tropical flavors. 7.5%

Surly Brewing

FURIOUS IPA: Surly Brewing in Tacoma?! Indeed. It’s a brief appearance, but the local Surly presence looks promising. The Minneapolis brewery’s flagship Furious IPA has huge herbal hop character up front very similar to unsweetened black tea. Crystal malts really balance the hop bitterness. Finishes extremely dry with a really resin and herbal hop character. 6.6%

AXE MAN IPA: Originally a collaboration with Amager Brewery in Denmark, Axe Man IPA is brewed with Golden Promise malt, double dry hopped with Citra and Mosaic hops, plus just a hint of haze, the IPA has intense tropical fruit and citrus aromas, with a rich and dry finish. 7.2%

Three Magnets Brewing

BOOM SCHOKOLADE: Three Magnets brewed a German chocolate cake with UK Maris Otter barley, chocolate malt, roasted barley, and lots of oats to round out the smooth mouthfeel on this imperial stout. Then, they added enough freeze dried 100 percent organic powdered coconut milk (instead of lactose sugar!) and drinking chocolate to make this vegan dessert lovers dream.  After fermentation, they conditioned it on toasted coconut flakes and added pecan. 9%

IMPOSSIBLE KNOTS IPA: Nelson, Denali, Enigma, and Citra hops give this silky smooth hazy IPA a pineapple aroma that punches you in the face, but massages your palate with melon and more pineapple. 6.9%

Two Beers Brewing

FRESH HOP IPA: This year’s version has more Centennial hops from Puterbaugh Farms per batch, giving the IPA a juicy citrus aroma balanced with a delightfully bitter finish. 6.2%
