New Beer Friday 2/22/19

The theme for today's New Beer Friday is "limited". If you want today's beer you need to hit the road sooner than later and avoid throwing those elbows. Have a great weekend.

Bonneville - AnniversaRYE: This beer changes every year (less the rye), this year’s take might be a true original for our market; it’s the area’s first Brut Rye Pale Ale. The rye adds a distinctive earthy, spicy character that plays with an experimental hop: EX 10416, which has its own spicy and herbal character offset by a punch of fruity citrus. The beer is pale in color with an aroma of lemon, tangerine and hints of rye. The sweet fruitiness is offset by the dry spiciness of the rye and the ultra-dry finish. Bittering hops were not used, as the complete fermentation leaves no cloying sweetness.4.0%.
Raise a glass of the 6th AnniversaRye to celebrate 6 years of Bonneville Brewery!

Kiitos - Tangerine Dream: This fruited IPA is a breakfast lovers dream and is probably one of the best brunch beers around; I'd go as far to say it's a 'beermosa'. It's full of all of the qualities that you want from a hazy IPA with the addition of citrus juice. You can tell there's real juice (not just juicy hops) by the way it lights up your salivary glands. This one is going fast, don't wait, it may not last the weekend. 

Uinta - Old Ephraim: This Flemish style brown is tart vague berries, a little metallic and lightly tart. Fruity malt character with more berry-like qualities. Nice bretty sourness, though it’s pretty subdued. I like this but seems like it was stretched a bit thin to yield more bottles. Worth snagging a bottle or two if your a fan of the style. 7.0%

Uinta Single Barrel Migrator: When Uinta originally released Migrator last November it was a blend of many barrels into one large batch. The best tasting single barrel was set aside, allowed to mature a little more and is now ready for you to try. This is a very limited run of 160 crowlers from Barrel #27. As you may recall: this bourbon barrel aged dopplebock is full of rich caramel and toffee. Next up you get a hint of roasted malts, then the bourbon kicks in adding complex vanilla and wood flavors. Finishes a tad sweet with not too much heat. Medium mouthfeel. The previous version came in at 8.0%, the single barrel dialed in at 10.5%. This goes on sale today 11am at Uinta.


Fisher - King Fisher: to celebrate the brewery's 2nd anniversary Fisher is releasing their 6th "high point offering an amped-up version of their Fisher Lager. Look for an unfiltered beer that has a  bolder malt and hop profile. Lager nerds won't want to miss this one. Along with this beer there will be other brewery events happening all day Saturday. Check out Fisher's social media more info. 6.6%. available at Fisher starting 10am??? 

Toasted Barrel Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrel Aged Chocolate Stout: No notes on this one, the name says it all. There will be a limited released tomorrow (Saturday 2/23), with the full release coming next week.  

Deschutes - Fresh Haze: Nose is marmalade and honey, but could have been bigger. A pretty solid IPA with flavor that leans toward orange and a hint of pine. Honestly, Hopped with Mandarina Bavaria, Amarillo and Simcoe. Overall, a pretty decent beer. But if Haze is your game you may come away wanting. 6.5% - Available at DABC.

Cheers!

There's also the 6th AnniversaRye at Bonneville Brewery.

This year’s AnniversaRye is a variant of a brand-new style of beer: the brut IPA. Brut IPAs use a special enzyme to allow all sugars produced in the brewing process to be fermentable. The result is a completely dry beer, like a champagne.
We’ve taken this technique and applied it to our latest celebratory rye beer. The rye adds a distinctive earthy, spicy character that plays with an experimental hop: EX 10416, which has its own spicy and herbal character offset by a punch of fruity citrus.
