Ruthless Rye, Dig and Vinyl are on their way out
Although yesterday marked the “official” first day of spring, some of our favorite spring brews are already on their way out this month. Today, we’re dedicating our seasonal post to spring releases available through March 31, including Sierra Nevada, Magic Hat and New Belgium!
First up is Sierra Nevada’s Ruthless Rye, which is brewed with rustic grains for their refined, sought-after flavors. The unique beer combines the peppery spice of rye with the lighter citrusy flavors of whole-cone hops, providing a nice medium between the darker winter beers and the more refreshing spring selections. Good in both cool and warmer weather, it’s perfect for “spring” in Southeast Texas.
If you’re a fan of pale ales, try New Belgium’s Dig. Brewed from Sorachi Ace hops and Nelson Sauvin, the beer provides a fresh spring zing with a notable lemon aroma and bursts of passion fruit, mango and peach. Rounding up the fine ingredients are Cascade and Centennial creating the crisp, clean flavor of a good Pale Ale.
You should also pick up some Vinyl from Magic Hat Brewing Company. The amber lager is characterized by a sweet malt taste and a slight balancing hop touch. This beer is produced using a lager strain of yeast and is fermented at the low end of ale fermentation temperatures, allowing it to maintain the drinkability of a lighter lager. Pick up a six pack before they’re all gone!
While the first official day of spring wasn’t exactly a pleasant one for most of Southeast, Texas there’s good news. This weekend’s forecast shows all blue skies and sunshine, so pick up your choice of beer and prepare for a great weekend.
We’ll be back on Friday with a recipe for some Cajun fare.
