•Chicago craft brewery Berghoff Brewing is releasing summer seasonal Granola Shambler in limited quantities through August. A take on traditional shandies and radlers, Granola Shambler is brewed with barley malt, wheat, oats and rye, splashed with Muscat grape juice and finished with citrus flavors. Brewed at Berghoff’s production facility in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, the German-style summer offering is available in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana in six-packs of cans. Company owner Ben Minkoff, whose family owns General Beverage Distribution of Wisconsin, purchased the Berghoff brand in 1994.

•Eugene, Oregon’s Ninkasi Brewing has launched its flagship Tricerahops Double India Pale Ale in 12-ounce four-packs. Previously only available in 22-ounce bottles and on draft, Tricerahops is an 8%-abv entry made with Chinook, Cascade, Summit, Centennial and Palisade hops, as well as 2-Row Pale, Munich and Carahell malts. Tricerahops’ 12-ounce four-pack format will be available starting in July across Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, California, Alaska, Nevada, and Vancouver, British Columbia. In addition to Tricerahops, Ninkasi’s flagship lineup includes its Total Domination, Believer, Oatis, Vanilla Oatis, and Quantum labels.
