I've seen this in Chicago grocery stores in the past, so I thought it time to at least point out Magic Hat releases. Accompanying Magic Hat No. 9, an apricot pale ale for those of you into overly fruity beer, are the following this spring (descriptions from Magic Hat's Dave Weissman):
Vinyl is a scrumptious spring lager with a deep amber hue, sweet malt taste and a slight balancing hop touch. This beer is produced using a lager strain of yeast and is fermented at the low end of ale fermentation temperatures, allowing the beer to maintain its easy-drinking lager-like characteristics.
Demo is a deliciously dark lick of an India Pale Ale. Its medley of roasted malts and heady hops will have your senses dancing to the beat of a different I.P.A. OMG Beer! Note: This is also available in 6 packs, and Black IPAs are the hot new thing for a reason, because they are such an awesome hybrid of flavors.
Unfiltered and unfettered, Circus Boy is a unique and refreshing American-style Hefeweizen. Be amazed by the return of the flavorful haze of this wonderful wheat beer. OMG Beer! Note: We might write up a list of Hefeweizens that don't disappoint, so I'd love to hear from anyone having tried this. My favorite Hefeweizen of 2010 was probably New Glarus.
