Some new beers should be hitting shelves this week at your liquor store (John’s Grocery). This week there will be brews in from Mendocino Brewing, Stillwater, and Evil Twin, which has been on shelves for a few weeks now.
MENDOCINO – Mendocino brewery is located in Mendocino, CA and has a huge lineup of beers. From their website:
“We take great pride in being pioneers in the American Craft Brewing Renaissance and even greater pride in our range of ales that beer lovers all over the country have made Legends. We hope that the pages on this site will let you know some more about how we started and about our passion for brewing the best.”
I believe their Eye of the Hawk has been on shelves in Eastern Iowa before. They have a different collection of beers, led by their Red Tail Ale which is an old world amber. To check out their complete lineup of beers go to (http://www.mendobrew.com/home.html).
Next up is Stillwater Premium. Description from Beer Advocate: “A Post Prohibition’ style ale brewed with Pilsner malt, corn, and rice. Hopped at 2lbs per BBL with Cluster, Northern Brewer, and Saaz and fermented with a farmhouse ale yeast and 2 strains of brettanomyces to weigh in at 4.5% ABV.”
Evil Twin has a bunch of beers available at John’s Grocery. Here is the complete list from the grocers’ website:
More info about Evil Twin from Beer Advocate: “A phantom brewery run by Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, brother of Mikkel Borg Bergsø of Mikkeller fame. Beers are brewed at / by another brewery.”
