We try to grab Thorn Brewing Co. beers whenever we see them on tap. Now thanks to their new distribution deal with Stone, we have a choice of 4 of offerings, straight from our beer fridge: Foreplay Belgian Blonde, Barrio Baja-Style Lager, Relay IPA, and this beer, Rock the Pale Ale.
Here’s our review of Thorn’s new Rock the Pale Ale:

What’s the biggest sign that a brewery’s special release was a huge hit? It gets turned into a core beer within several months time, which is exactly what happened with Mikkeller Raspberry Blush. One of the best beers of 2017!
Here’s our review of Mikkeller Raspberry Blush, which is more or less just a rundown of how awesome this Berliner is:

We absolutely love Highland Park Brewery and their insanely hoppy beers, and realized we had never written about them. They are brewing some of the best hop forward offerings in California, especially their West Coast style beers like this aptly named Good Green.
This week we took a look at the dankness of Good Green:

Last week Mission Brewery debuted their own club platform, aptly named Blackbeard’s Crew to fit their pirate/conquistador branding. Their foray into membership seems to be a hybrid of a premium growler club, and a smaller scale bottle plan.
You can get more details on Blackbeard’s Crew here:
