•New Belgium Brewing has released Voodoo Ranger Juicifer IPA, as part of the Voodoo Ranger Rotating IPA Series. While the core Voodoo Ranger hews more closely to a traditional west coast IPA, Juicifer is a riff on the hazy New England style. Brewed with Citra Incognito, Galaxy, and Chinook hops, the ale is at 7.7% abv. It’s now available in 6- and 12-packs of 12-ounce cans nationwide. New Belgium is the fourth-largest craft brewer in the U.S., according to the Brewers Association.
•Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. will produce its 2019 Oktoberfest in collaboration with Germany’s Bitburger Brewery. The beer will be made with Bitburger’s Siegelhopfen, the hop blend Bitburger has never shared before. The beer also will utilize Bitburger’s custom yeast, another first-time gift. Bitburger has been in operation since 1817. Oktoberfest 2019 will be available nationwide in late July. Sierra Nevada is the third-largest brewer in the U.S., according to the Brewers Association.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
