Although Spring may look a little different this year, it's still an opportune time to enjoy an ice cold brewskie. If you happen to find yourself in need of some beer guidance during these uncertain times, we’ve compiled a list of all the new brews being released this week. You'll find tons of summer-centric styles and even a hard seltzer added into the mix. Know of any beers being released in the coming months? Drop me a line here, and I'll make sure to include it in our next roundup! 

5/11 | Devil's Backbone Loved by the Sun

LBTS-12ozCan-After-WebPeach Mango Beer | 4.5% ABV

Some of the best summer evenings are spent under the glow of the setting sun with a cold one in hand. We’ll one-up that with a can that changes color with the sun, and a beer that’s low-calorie, and bursting with juicy peach & mango flavors. So, head outside, slow down, and enjoy the delicious show as the cans change color in direct sunlight.

Our easy-drinking Sea Salt & Lime Lager comes just in time to help you cool down this summer. This sessionable brew is light and refreshing with just a dash of sea salt and a squeeze of lime to keep things interesting. And if you’d like to add a second dash or squeeze, that certainly wouldn’t hurt. It’s just right for summer days - whether you spend yours cooling off at the nearby swimming hole or just basking in some A/C on your sofa. Cheers!
