Hargreaves Hill ‘Fruitopia’ #1 Sour
Shadows in the Forest is the first release of Hargreaves’s new series of limited releases around fruit beers. Hargreaves is attempting to push the fruit to 11, and we are all about it! This first Fruitopia is a smoothie style sour ale, with milk sugar added, as well as, about 450kg of fresh Blackberries and raspberries (15% of the liquid).
One Drop Brewing Mango Milkshake IPA
Talking about pushing something to the 11..One Drop and lactose is the new passion love story in town.
“A true milkshake with massive additions of sweet tropical fruit, silky lactose, and rich vanilla. Sabro, Citra, and Vic Secret add just the right slice of hoppiness without distraction from the huge hits of coconut, ripe mango, and vanilla. Served with Nitro for ultimate creaminess.” (One Drop, 2020)

Anderson Valley Blood Orange Gose
The Anderson Valley Blood Orange Gose is back in all it’s bloody glory. It’s tart, tangy and ultra quaffable. The base is a wheat ale kettle-soured with lactobacillus, brewed with sea salt and coriander then finalized with the addition of kilos of blood oranges.
