•Oregon’s Rogue Ales & Spirits has introduced Paradise Pucker, the brewery’s first sour beer.
The Hawaii-inspired beer is brewed with passion fruit, orange peel and guava. The 6%-abv brew was initially crafted as a limited-release experiment for the Hawaiian market but, due to its popularity, the company is now expanding its presence. Rogue Paradise Pucker is now available on draft and in 22-ounce bottles throughout the U.S.
•This month, Denver, Colorado’s Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project will release three of its Brettanomyces-brewed beers in cans. The cans are available at the brewery, and, by mid-June, will be sold throughout Colorado. Crooked Stave is releasing cans of St. Bretta, a farmhouse saison; HopSavant, an IPA brewed with Brettanomyces; and Colorado WildSage, a Brett Saison brewed with Colorado-grown herbs. The four-packs of 12-ounce cans will debut Crooked Stave’s redesigned logo and packaging featuring brighter colors. In the fall, the company will can its Pilsner and IPA as well.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
