New Beer Friday 10/15/10

Today's New Beer Friday has some new and returning favorites.

Lagunitas Hop Stoopid returns to the Bayou. It has big grapefruit, pineapple and peach notes with touch of pine and floral hops in the finish. It disappeared very fast last time around. don't wait too long.

Lagunitas Imperial Stout. This one is new to the state and is only at the Bayou. It has Some chocolate, coffee, and caramel notes that are pleasantly sweet with a smoky finish. Balanced nicely by grassy hops. The abv on this seems to range from 8.2% - 10.1%. So check your bottle.

Bohemian Brewing in Midvale has a special Oktoberfest/Märzen on tap for a limited time. They just put it on yesterday afternoon. So I haven't tried it yet. only available at the Brewpub.

The Wasatch Brewpub also has an Oktoberfest beer on tap as well. I haven't tried this one yet either. Available at the Brewpub and at the Utah Brewers Cooperative. On draft only.

Returning from Epic Brewing is their popular Sour Apple Saison. Apple and hints of vanilla up front. Kind of dusty with white pepper and hay. Light, spicy and refreshing.
If your thinking of aging this one beware. I had a bottle of batch #1 explode in my cellar a few days ago. So segregate it or keep a close eye on it.

Cheers!

Also worth mentioning is that the Wasatch Winterfest was bottled Yesterday (10-14) and on the shelf at the Beer Store. Soon in the liquor stores

This is perhaps my favorite beer we make and this year is no exception!

Mikey, hope that blow-up did not cause any damage, please let us know. Also if you still have the remains of the bottle we would love to have it back to send it to the glass vendor for review. Tim in Vegas had one go on him too. We had problems with that load of glass and the vendor has credited us but I want to keep them on their toes. I have a few bottles from 1 in my reefer. ;)

I still have a few of batch #1, I guess I'll be drinking them soon. It could be worse :)
