Don’t pause, just send it. By that I mean, send this new collaboration IPA to me…
Riip Beer Co. and El Segundo send hoppy beers all over the city, this might be another winner.
Covina’s Arrow Lodge & Inglewood’s Crowns & Hops have a new hazy release, Culture Vulture with Guava and Bird Pick Tea and hopped with Motueka, El Dorado.
We don’t get any Cincy Made Rhinegeist beer here in the Southland so this collaboration with Karl Strauss is as close as you can get unless you have Midwest travel plans coming up. The label is a little too colorful for me but a citrusy IPA sounds good.
I am not one to sign up for grocery delivery. I like to pick my own stuff and I stare at screens too much as it is. But I was intrigued by a company that was selling the not pretty but still perfectly fine food.
Now that company, Imperfect Foods has a beer made with New Belgium, a citrus IPA. No googly eyes included.
You do not get many collaborations between breweries from Montana and, well, most of the other 49 states so don’t sleep on this new release from Surfridge of El Segundo and Philipsburg Brewing Co. Plus, you get a riff on the amber ale in the bargain.
There are collaborations and then there are super collaborations. Highland Park + Beachwood, well that is the level above super.
Here are the double details…
“Natural Born Shredder – West Coast-style IPA, our version of the previous beer collab released at Highland Park Brewery.
No Chestnuts in This Beer – Hoppy & crisp Italian-style pilsner, just in time as the warm weather creeps upon us for this pilsner.”
Another AleSmith collab is dropping soon, this time Tower of Flower with Beachwood Brewing. Julian has been busy!
The new release will be a double dry-hopped west coast-style IPA with Galaxy, Cashmere and Nelson hops.
If you like Strata, Citra and Mosaic hops, then I think this new collaboration IPA, Born Dreaming might be up your flavor alley.
If you are a fan of Highland Park Brewery or the coming to LA (still?) Creature Comforts then you will probably like this.
It can be a fun game to predict which breweries might collaborate on a beer. I certainly did not have Tarantula Hill and Mumford on my collaboration bingo card. But here they are with a Beastie of a hazy IPA complete with a dangerous robot.
Future SoCal brewery, Creature Comforts has teamed with Green Cheek on a hot new release…
…Citra and Nelson hops combined with what the label describes as “Fire” make up this upcoming beer.
