Gene’s Picks of the Week! June 7th, 2024


1) Cellarmaker – Otto’s Jacket
West Coast IPA, 7.0%
Better fasten your seatbelts, little dudes! Recurring Simpsons character Otto Mann drives the school bus and stands by his record – fifteen crashes and no fatalities. This West Coast IPA from our friends at Cellarmaker up north pays homage to the man(n)’s jacket, replete with hidden chambers. Citra, HBC 586, Mosaic and my personal favorite New Zealand varietal Motueka make for a heady sensory experience. 
2) Pure Project – Rain
Kellerpils, 5.3%
This beer not a new release by any stretch, but has not been available in distribution in a very long time. One of the most beloved of core lagers from Pure Project has become a rare treat of late, so it is a delight to welcome it back onto our shelves. At this time of year, this is the only rain we can expect – and these cans are as fresh as can be, so swing by and pick a few up!
3) Fieldwork – Greetings from Raspberry Park
Fruited Sour, 7.0%
The summer months demand an effervescent sour ale and a lot of lying about in the park. Why not combine both with this razzy offering from Fieldwork? Raspberries impart their own brambly acidity, melding beautifully with the kettle-soured base ale. The beer pours a vivid fire-engine-red hue, with pink foam atop. To be enjoyed in the sun!
