Abu Nawas drops this week: More Hubbard’s Cave and Une Annee

une annee

I’m not sure what everyone else things but Abu Nawas getting us Hubbard’s Cave beers to our market sure has been a treat! Love what these guys are doing and look forward to trying everything they release. Here’s what’s coming down the line this week from Abu Nawas:

  • Hubbard’s Cave: Fresh IIPA V5 (Citra, Mosaic) 16oz CANS – While these tropical fruit bomb hops need no further description, we’d also like to note that in addition to the subtle changes to the malt bill/brew process to amplify body/sweetness we made beginning with last week’s release (V29), this is the first batch trying a different yeast strain from what we’ve been using. We won’t spoil all the surprises but just want to say we think everyone will be pleased with the results.
  • Hubbard’s Cave: Fresh IIPA V30 (Chinook, Idaho 7, Simcoe) 16oz CANS – This one is another new addition to the V series, Fresh IIPA V30, but keeping with the updated malt base and yeast profile beginning with V5. Chinook and Idaho 7 in the boil (or whirlpool, rather) give this one a nice piney and lightly bitter backbone, then a bit of each along with a large charge of Simcoe in the dry-hop drives this home while also yielding a beautiful bouquet of tropical fruit.
  • Hubbard’s Cave: Coco Van  16oz CANS –  From the Brewery: “Last time we made this beer we added more coconut than we’ve ever used and our backs paid the price when it came time to dig out the fermenter. This time we said backs be damned and added even more! We’re left with a thick and decadent coconut bomb of an imperial stout that goes down far too smooth for 12%.” ***Very Limited***
  • Hubbard’s Cave: Mocha Pot de Crème16oz CANS   –From the Brewery: “This is a brand new addition to the PdC series! We were, as always, excited to team up with our friends Brian and Josh at Abacus Coffee Roasters for our coffee addition on this beer. When we told them we wanted something to pair with a thick and chocolatey lactose stout, they came back with El Salvador Red Honey Bourbon, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Smooth, creamy, and bursting with coffee, this one lives up to its name.  ***Very Limited***
  • Une Annee: Framboise 16oz CANS –  American Wild Ale Fermented with Raspberries. 6.5% ABV ***Now in a Snazzy 2 Pack CANS***
  • Une Année Le Seul XXVI (Boysenberry)24-CANS – 2pk16oz –  Another in our Le Seul series makes its debut in cans! We’ve continued blending bits of our Brett culture into each batch of Le Seul to reduce acidity and add a little complexity, but that hasn’t stopped us from adding copious amounts of fruit to them! This batch saw a heaping addition of Boysenberries yielding a mild bitterness and strong aromas/flavors of sweet, jammy fruit.  ***Now in a Snazzy 2 Pack CANS***
  • Une Année Le Seul XXVIII (Tangerine)24-CANS – 2pk16oz   –  We have a new member of the Le Seul family with LS XXVIII (Tangerine). Falling in line with our other recent Le Seul releases, this one has a subtle tartness and a light Brett profile, with a luscious Tangerine aroma which brings Sunny D and daydreams of playing outside to mind. A springtime crusher!     ***Now in a Snazzy 2 Pack CANS***

Abu Nawas Drops for this week! Hubbard Cave/Une Annee

Another drop of terrific brews coming from Abu Nawas as Hubbard’s Cave and Une Annee will be getting some more of their great beers to us next week. Here’s what’s coming:

une1.jpeg

  • Le Seul XXIV (Plum) 24-CANS – 2pk16oz – American Wild Ale Fermented with Plums. 6.5% ABV. From The Brewery: “This beer is being released for just the second time ever and for the first time in cans! With this batch we’ve continued blending bits of our Brett culture into our original mixed-culture base, allowing more of its character to shine and also resulting in a more restrained acidity. We also threw so much plum purée at this one that even our centrifuge couldn’t get it clear! The result is a complex and refined, yet easy-drinking crusher fruit bomb of a sour beer.”
  • Hubbard’s Cave: Fresh IIPA V28 (Ariana, Jarrylo, Pekko) 24-CANS – 4pk16oz – Fresh IIPA. 8.5% ABV. From The Brewery: “We were feeling a little poetic in crafting this one, paying homage to springtime with Jarrylo being named after the Slavic God of fertility and Pekko named after the Finnish God of farming. The result is a lightly tropical, herbal and earthy IIPA that hits the mouth soft and sweet, but finishes dry and crisp with a light bitterness…keeping in tradition with our hoppy beers landing square between the coasts’ respective styles.”
  • Hubbard’s Cave: Fresh IIPA V29 (Falconer’s Flight, Michigan Copper) 24-CANS – 4pk16oz – Fresh IIPA. 8.5% ABV. From The Brewery: “This batch saw a few tweaks to the brew process resulting in a moderate increase in sweetness, more amplified body, and a smoother bitterness. [read: more juicy] Playing with the new base profile, we’ve got floral and citrus character from the Falconer’s Flight while Michigan Copper is more known for its fruit punch and cherry candy-like flavors, with both imparting notes of pine resin.” 8.5% ABV.
