A few new beers made their way into the store yesterday.
Three Floyds Alpha Klaus - Three Floyds calls this brew their American Christmas Porter and Alpha King's festive cousin. According to their website, it is brewed with English chocolate malt, Mexican sugar, and tons of strange American hops. This one is definitely in my holiday beer queue. 6% ABV, 38 IBU
Lakefront Bridge Burner - The brewery gives a great description of this on their website, so I will leave it to them - "The Bridge Burner pours a deep, fiery amber with a rocky off-white head. The assertive aroma is dominated by dry, earthy American hops: citrus, floral and pine tree notes all make a showing. The hops dominate, lending a hefty bitterness to the palate, but are backed up by the caramel malts, which lend a substantial body without any extra sweetness. A warm alcohol burn finishes it off with a nod to its considerable 8.0 % ABV". I was able to try this beer this past summer while I was in Milwaukee and really liked it. I felt it was pretty similar to Stone Arrogant Bastard. That's not a bad thing.
Hinterland Winterland - Another new beer into the store from the brewery out of Green Bay. This Porter is brewed with Juniper Berry to help it fit in great with the holidays. I have been pretty impressed with Hinterland so far, and can't wait to give this one a shot. It sounds great.
