Draft Beer Update:

Tommyknocker Pick Axe IPA replaced Lagunitas IPA. An IPA from Colorado.

Abita Select Imperator replaced Elysian Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale. A tasty black IPA.

Ramstein Double Platinum Blonde replaced Weyerbacher White Sun Wit. A higher than normal ABV for a wheat beer.

Weyerbacher Nineteen replaced Lost Abbey Gift of the Magi. Brewed to the classic “Weyerbacher anniversary requirement” of a strength of 10% ABV or more, Nineteen fits the mold and brings a new dimension to the anniversary pedigree: tartness! Two brews were made: a high-ABV mango-infused wheat beer and a tart blending beer, both using pale and wheat malts and a blend of Belgian yeasts. The final blended beer features both tropical sweetness, as well as the tart citrusy character of a spontaneously fermented beer.

River Horse Summer Blonde replaced Sam Adams Summer Ale. A simple golden ale for summertime drinking.

Philadelphia Fleur de Lehigh replaced Central Waters Hop Rise Session Ale. This summer seasonal is an unfiltered golden ale brewed with chamomile, rhubarb, ginger, rose hips, and lemon grass; then fermented with their Belgian yeast strain.

A sixtel of Shawnee Session Porter replaced itself on the Beer Engine.

Flying Fish Exit 1 Bayshore Oyster Stout replaced Rogue Fifteen Thousand Brew Ale. An "export style" stout brewed with oysters. The creamy chocolate flavor harmonizes with the minerals from the oyster shells (there’s no actual "oyster" taste). An Irish ale yeast contributes a bit of fruitiness and a dry crispness.
