New Releases

We release brand-new beers and re-release seasonals and customer favorites regularly. We like to schedule releases for Friday afternoons, so all our friends who are finishing up their work weeks can stop in for a fresh-brewed beverage! New releases stay on tap at our brewpubs until they’re gone, so if you really want to try one, come by as soon as you see it’s available.
