The Depot has released The Rodeo Queen, a raspberry sour. A refreshingly tart and flamboyantly colored brew, this beer celebrates the rodeo season that has become a summer tradition for so many in our community. A sour fermentation with loads of fresh raspberry puree is followed up with maturation in French Oak Merlot barrels from our friends at Madroña Winery.

Mill Street Still & Brew just released a Dayman Hefeweizen. A classic German wheat beer that is low ABV and low bitterness with hints of banana and cloves.

READ: The American Homebrewers Association has released their survey of the 2017 Best Beers in America. Spoiler: Pliny is not #1. On their Best Beers/Best Brewery by State – Dirty Wookie from The Brewer’s Cabinet is #1.

Honorable Mention: Men’s Journal Magazine listed Daily Wages from Brasserie St James as one of the top 101 beers in America!
