Here are the beers from our May 2019 beer box, enjoy!
If you’re interested in our beer box subscription service, have a look here.
Garden Brewery, Zagreb, Croatia – Apricot Sour, 3.6%, 330ml can.
We’ve had a few great beers from Garden in Croatia previously, so we thought this Apricot Sour would work well. Tart and refreshing with soft stone fruit flavour.
Anchor Brewing, San Francisco, California – Baykeeper IPA, 7.0%, 355ml bottle.
A new IPA from Anchor, brewed to celebrate the 30th anniversary of San Francisco Baykeeper, a nonprofit organisation that works to protect the ecosystems of the San Francisco Bay. Anchor are the originators of craft beer in the USA so expect this to be a classic example of the style.
Firestone Walker, Paso Robles, California – Mind Haze, Hazy IPA, 6.2%, 355ml can.
One of our all time favourite West Coast breweries, we tried this during our trip to California in January and have been waiting for it to launch in the UK ever since! A delicious soft and juicy IPA.
Cigar City, Tampa, Florida – Florida Cracker, Belgian Style White Ale, 5.5%, 355ml can.
Continuing on our American theme this month we’ve got one of Florida’s most loved beers from Cigar City. It’s a Belgian style white beer, brewed with orange and coriander. Enjoy preferably while soaking up some sunshine!
Oskar Blues, Longmont, Colorado – Guns ‘N’ Rosé, Rosé Style Ale, 6%, 355ml can.
Everybody loves a pun! More US breweries are releasing wine hybrid beers all the time, this features hibiscus and prickly pear. A light and fruity refresher.
Flying Dog, Frederick, Maryland – Lucky SOB, Irish Red Ale, 5.5%, 355ml can.
An Irish style Red Ale, not something we see that often, but you know how much the Americans love the Irish! This classic red ale balances caramel and toffee notes with red fruit hop flavour.
Evil Twin, Brooklyn, New-York – Bikini Beer, Pale Ale, 2.7%, 355ml can.
A small beer from Evil Twin, coming out of New York (via Denmark) this low alcohol pale ale packs a hoppy punch. Low alcohol means lower calories, so you’ll still be able to fit into your Bikini after one of these.
If you ticked ‘I like all beers’
Tiny Rebel, Newport, UK – Salted Caramel Imperial Stay Puft, Salted Caramel Marshmallow Porter, 9%, 330ml can.
Dessert in a can! Tiny Rebel have released a few variations of their Marshmallow Stout, this one is higher in alcohol and has salted caramel too. If you’ve got a sweet tooth you’ll love this!
If you ticked ‘No dark beers’
Cloudwater, Manchester, UK – Small Pale, 2.9%, 440ml can.
Cloudwater have perfected this style now, lots of hop flavour with balanced malt character, all delivered at just under 3%. A great first beer of the day.
