Get it First at Binny’s: Citra Hero

Tagged:

When Revolution announced they planned to can their widely popular Hero-Series of IPAs, they had our full attention. From this solid line up, we’re happy to announce the arrival of Citra Hero; it might just be our favorite.

 

Citra Hero Binny's

 

Revolution Citra Hero

Perhaps we’re a bit biased for Citra hop. To be fair, Citra Hero is pretty easy to fall in love with. After popping the top, you’re immediately hit with an intoxicating mix of pineapple and guava. Belgian aromatic malts and red wheat provide complexity and smoothness, yet the star of the show remains the incredibly citrusy and fruity hop finish. This is Citra at its best.


Whiskey Hotline: Papa’s Pilar

Tagged:

Papa is Ernest Hemingway, and Pilar is his boat. Famous for his writing, Hemingway was just as prolific at exploring, hunting and fishing. Papa’s Pilar is the perfect sidekick for any adventure. This is worldly rum, aged in a unique solera system with French, Port, bourbon and Spanish wine barrels, sourced from the Caribbean, Florida, and Central America. Top to bottom, these are all wonderfully complex rums.

Tagged:

It’s been a fun year of travel for the Beer Buzz. Our latest beer education adventure led us to England where we visited Samuel Smith’s Brewery – Yorkshire’s oldest brewery.

Fruits of Summer: Pineapple Beer

Tagged:

With newer breeds of hops like Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe imparting some amazing tropical fruit flavors and aromas, many brewers are doubling down by adding actual fruit to the mix. What better time than summer to turn up the tropical. We love pineapple, and if you do too, here are four fresh new flavors that are not to be missed.

Fruits of Summer: Watermelon Beer

Tagged:

Few images capture summer more perfectly than a bright red wedge of fresh watermelon. Just as melons roll into stores, so do the watermelon beers. That’s right, now you can eat your watermelon and drink it too! Like a good chunk of melon, try each of these favorites first on its own, and then with a tiny pinch of salt.

Three Little Handpicked Pigs

Tagged:

I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll drink your rye down! Maybe no huffing or puffing, but I’ll definitely drink any of these new Whistle Pig barrels. These three little pigs, as we call them, are explosive and intriguing. Made from 100% rye, they’re big and sturdy like a house made of bricks, and will stand up to any big bad wolf.
