Some future release news of beers that will be hitting our Eastern Iowa shelves in the future. First, we start with Odell.
**Odell Brewing Lone Comet IPA** – Odell giving us another IPA that will be using only Comet hops. It will check in at 6.5% and come in 12 oz bottles. (mybeerbuzz.com)
**Odell Brewing Mountain Standard Black IPA** this beer will be released in 12 oz cans and come in at 8.1%. More on this brew from Odell:
As winter sets in we embrace the darkness with this Double Black IPA—released as Daylight Savings falls back to MST. We brew it with hops handpicked on Colorado’s Western Slope. The assertive American hop profile and roasted malt character balance perfectly with just a touch of bitterness. Go ahead. Give in to the dark side.
Available yearly from September through December
**Lagunitas 12th of Never Ale** – Lagunitas Brewing finally starting to package in cans with 12th of Never Ale. A hop forward 5.5% brew that will have a different saying on top of each can. Here’s more courtesy of mybeerbuzz:
I’m excited to give you your VERY fist look at a new can (yes cans!) coming from Lagunitas. This is the new 12th of Never Ale and the neame refers to Lagunitas Brewing’s desire to be the last (or second-to-last) craft brewery in America to can their beers. This hop-forward beer will hit 5.5%-AbV and you’re looking at the 12oz can. Each of the designs below will feature a different saying at the top of the can and these cans look like they will be packaged in both Petaluma, CA and Chicago, IL. Stay tuned here for release details (I’m hearing the cans will be purple).
**Lagunitas Stoopid Wit** – what sounds like a hopped up Belgian-wit is coming from Langunitas. Stoopid Wit will be a limited release and come in at 4.8% ABV in 12 oz bottles.
**Avery Barrel-Aged Coconut Porter** – a beer that will no doubt be a highly anticipated release and will fly off the shelves, Avery will be packaging this beer in May and should hit shelves shortly after. This is the bourbon barrel version as there is also a rum barrel version. It will check in at 9.5% ABV and come in 22 oz bottles. Stay tuned to more on this release. (mybeerbuzz.blogspot.com)
**Founders Pale Joe w/Coffee** – 5.4% pale ale infused with coffee is going to hit the bottling line. Here’s more from Founders on this brew:
A light, golden ale brewed using high end, lightly roasted, fruit forward coffees that don’t get too bitter or astringent. Brewed with Kenya Windrush and a Tier 3 experimental coffee roasted at Ferris, right here in town.
