New Brew Monday 3/29/10

We have a few new beers available in the Salt Lake area. The majority of the new stuff is from Pike Brewing out of Seattle. Pike's Kilt lifter has been available in the market for quite a few years, I don't know what took so long to get the rest.

First is the Pike Pale Ale. A great floral nose with moderate malt and hops. Yummy!

Pike's IPA: Big malt backbone balanced with spicy/herbal hops.

Pike XXXXX Stout: Yup five full X's. Chocolate, licorice and espresso. Very nice.

Pike's Double IPA: Big biscuity malt with citrusy grapefruit bitterness.

Old Bawdy Barleywine: Big malts, hops and earthiness. 10% abv.

Red Nectar Ale is from Nectar Ales, a division of Firestone Walker Brewing. A nice Amber Ale with a good dose of Chinook, Mt. Hood, Cascade hops.

Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversay Ale: Fritz and Ken's Ale. A collaboration beer from Fritz Maytag of Anchor Brewing and Sierra Nevada founder Ken Grossman. The 30th Anniversary Series is four different beers brewed by Pioneers in the United States Craft beer movement. They will be released quarterly through out 2010.(Beerhive)

Cheers!

I love how beer-awesome Salt Lake is becoming. Hell yes.

Just an FYI, we got our batch of 30th Anniversary @The Bayou today. It is gorgeously packaged. Can't wait to try it.
