July 8, 2015

•Texas-based Garrison Brothers Distillery is re-releasing its Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon (TM) in limited quantities this summer. First produced in 2013, the 67.5%-abv entry is made with organic corn, winter wheat and two-row malted barley, and was originally aged in white oak barrels for two years and packaged in 375-ml. bottles. This year’s release, however, has been aged for four years in white oak and packaged in a 750-ml. format. Limited to 5,200 bottles, the Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon (TM) 2015 edition will be available at select accounts nationwide, priced in line with the 2013 version at roughly $159.99-$169.99 a bottle.

•New Belgium Brewing is bringing back former Lips of Faith series brew Eric’s Ale this summer. The 7.0%-abv fruit sour ale is aged for up to two years in oak foeders with peaches for a sweet and tart finish, the company says. Eric’s Ale, named for longtime New Belgium brewer Eric Salazar, is available in 22-ounce bottles and on draft. New Belgium’s year-round offerings include Fat Tire Amber Ale, Ranger IPA (an Impact “Hot Brand”) and Rampant Imperial IPA, among others.

•Santa Rosa Beach, Florida’s Grayton Beer Company is releasing a new seasonal offering, Handful of Thorns, as part of its Artist Series. The limited-edition session IPA is brewed with red rose petals and features label art designed by local artist Bryan Hand, with a portion of the proceeds devoted to art-based initiatives in the Florida Panhandle. Grayton Beer’s Handful of Thorns (6.7% abv) is available at select retailers and on-premise accounts this month.
