What the brewers say
What our panel thought
Aroma: “The first impression is like sunscreen, with light coconut and banana aromas. Some nice tartness comes out in the nose, as well as some notes of lemon and mango. A bit of wheat-like sweetness and very slight floral notes.”
Flavor: “Moderately tart up front, with a touch of citrus sweetness. Light, tart sweetness in the middle that transitions into more prominent sour toward the finish and is medium lasting. The tartness is refreshing but the body lacks some sweetness to hold this tartness up. Slightly salted, crisp, with a refreshing finish. The acidity stays through the finish.”
Overall: “Reminiscent of a day at the beach with the sunscreen notes over the salt, but the crisp and refreshing tartness and fruit pull through quickly. Strong salted lemon at first, and with more sips some of the other fruit-like notes come through. It’s acidic for a Gose, and if you like tartness, this is the beer for you.”

Two pillars of brew- ing history come together to release a beer that represents the origin and the evolution of brewing. Braupakt is deliciously drinkable, showcasing both Weihenstephan’s brewing prowess through their signature yeast and Sierra Nevada’s proclivity for big hops flavor. The initial impression on the palate is of a bouquet of aromas, including subtle touches of banana plus refreshing grapefruit from the American Chinook hops.
A flavorful craft beer that’s uniquely easy to drink? It’s true. Introducing Firestone Lager. While Firestone Lager may not be your father’s lager, it is just as drinkable—which is ultimately the point. In the words of Brewmaster Matt Brynildson, “Firestone Lager is all about enjoying a good, clean beer.”
New Belgium The Hemperor HPA®
Our brewers are always on the lookout for different hops varieties and the complexities and flavors new strains can bring. That’s where hemp comes into the picture. Without getting too nerdy, we found a unique way to recreate hemp terpene flavors in a beer, which complement the inclu- sion of hop flavors and hemp hearts (seeds) in a brand new, delicious way not to mention this beer is extremely dank! The flavors and aromas are so unique that it’s a style unto itself, hence HPA®.
Tröegs Nimble Giant
We had no idea that a little experiment with Mosaic hops would set us on a year-long path to a new double IPA. But seven small-batch Scratch beers later, we found the Giant. Nimble Giant—brewed with Mosaic, Azacca, and Simcoe—gracefully boasts grapefruit rind, pineapple, and honeysuckle notes with a hint of earthy forest floor.
