An Anniversary Beer for Mad Hatchet
Don’t fear the Chupacabra! This is quite a tasty Horchata inspired Cream Ale from Mad Hatchet Brewing, weighing in a 6.7%.
The name Cupacabra literally translates to “Goat Sucker.” This reported beast was scene in Northern Mexico and Southern US with a third for blood – preying on livestock.
A hazy double milkshake IPA is on the forecast for today. Storm Shake is hopped with Strata, El Dorado, and Mosaic, with pillowy milk sugar and high quality vanilla added to the mix. The result is a brest with IPA bitterness and spine, along with creamy, shakey decadence.

Pollyanna Brewing Teams Up With Revolution
Get our your leis and alpine hats, it’s time for “Lederhosen Luau!” That’s the name of the collaboration between Pollyanna Brewing Company and Revolution Brewing Company. They’ve got a 6.0% Hopfenweisse loaded with hops (Sabro, Citra and Mosaic), as well as Hefeweizen yeast, German wheat, and malts (Vienna, Pils, and Munich). Tropical fruit, citrus, coconut, banana, and a silky smooth body. This is what Oktoberfest would taste like in Honolulu, and I can’t wait to try it!
I’m Purposely Putting This One Last on the Weekly List …
It’s called Epilogue … you know, the section at the end of a book. Serious, Miskatonic’s Epilogue Imperial IPA It’s a touchup of an old recipe, From Miskatonic’s description:
The same brash, lightly biscuity body from the original meets even more hopping than previous iterations. Be on the lookout for the characteristic citrusy, grassy, perfumey orange aroma hit followed with a stinger of classic west coast bitterness and crisp, dry finish.
Cool Hair is on its Way Back
If you’re like me, you’ve got the “Stay-at-home” hair going and need to get a hair cut as soon as possible. (Shoutout to Sports Clips Romeoville). You want to have cool hair. You also want to get to Blue Nose for when they release their batch of Cool Hair. This Raspberry Sour took home the 2019 Golden Growler for Best Beer.
