Pigeon Head Brewery has just released Motueka Wheat IPA. Motueka is a rare New Zealand hop known for citrus and tropical fruit flavors. This batch is also blended with Mosaic and Amarillo hops. There is no bittering hop addition creating full, smooth flavor without a bitter bite.

Revision Brewing is releasing a new NE Style IPA on January 12 called Social Fermentation. Also on Friday (1/12) there will be a new batch of Disco Ninja available in cans and draft.

IMBĪB Custom Brews now has Abiogenesis #7 Muscat Sour in bottles.  This batch is bottle conditioned and refermented with fresh Brett cultures to further the complexity of the already complex sour and capable of aging for a long time under cellar conditions.. Very limited, only 50 bottles of this version. 8% ABV.

Under the Rose Brewing has released 8260 (as in elevation) American-style Blonde Ale. A collaboration with Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe.

South Lake Brewing  has released their very first lager – Pilsner of Society. Brewed with clean Tahoe water, German pilsner malt, and gently hopped with Saphir hops. Notes of fresh grain and floral noble hops are accentuated by a crisp and dry body.

Also, on Saturday (1/13), SLBC will have their very first can release. 4 packs of 2 different brews will go on sale at the tasting room. Beers include Angora IPA and a new one called Chunderstruck – a hazy IPA.

Lead Dog Brewing has released Peanut Butter Stout and Choconilla Stout in 16 oz cans. Available in the taproom for $8.99/4pk.
