When you hit your local liquor store or brewery in search of some new beers to try, there are a few we’d recommend keeping an eye out for. Some of these are brand new, some are seasonals making their return, and some were just announced for future release. So next time you’re out scouting some potential fridge-dwellers, look out for these.


Modern Times Attack Frequency

Modern Times has ditched their classic branding for something fresh and stunning with the release of Attack Frequency, their new tropical IPA. Brewed with Citra, Amarillo, El Dorado, and Rakau hops to compliment the guava and apricot also used, the limited release is a fruity, citrusy juice-bomb. Unlike the Modern Times cans that you can often see on shelves out west, this special release will be challenging to acquire when it drops in August—but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. Link


IPA / ABV: 7%

Troegs Nimble Giant

The Scratch Beer Series from Troegs is an ever-growing collection of experimental brews you can purchase when you visit the brewery in Hershey, Pennsylvania. These are beers they tinker with and play around with until they are just right, and when they are just right, some get released to the public. Such is the case with Nimble Giant, a new Double IPA from Troegs. What started out as a Scratch Beer has morphed into a once-a-year brew you need to get your hands on. Tropical and fruity thanks to the blend of Mosaic, Azacca, and Simcoe hops, the bold beer is surprisingly drinkable. Link


Double IPA / ABV: 9%

Trillium Hundred Thousand Trillion IPA

Rejoice, hopheads, because Trillium is canning. And while we can’t say whether this collab was canned at Trillium or at Other Half, we can tell you Hundred Thousand Trillion is f’ing spectacular. Aromatic and easy to drink, the new IPA is aged on mango, apricot, and peach, and it’s as tasty as the can is sexy (not a surprise considering the two breweries who were involved). It’s another tricky one to obtain, but if you know a guy who knows a guy, talk to that guy. Link


IPA / ABV: 6.3%

Stone W00tstout 2016

For the third time, Drew Curtis, Whil Wheaton, and Stone’s Greg Koch got together to craft the geekiest brew in the galaxy. W00tstout is a “superhero” version of an imperial stout, with pecans, wheat, flaked rye, and bourbon-soaked wood all adding to its delicious superpower of getting you drunk. It’s complex, silky smooth, and crazy good. Link


Imperial Stout / ABV 13%

Destihl Synchopathic

Destihl’s Wild Sour Series is solid gold. Not only is each beer fantastic, but affordable sours that actually sit on shelves are a complete rarity. The most recent addition to the line up is Synchopathic, a drinkable sour with notes of citrus and pine. It’s the hoppy sour you never knew you needed in your life. Link


American Wild Ale / ABV: 6%

Heavy Seas x Terrapin Rye Wit

The latest in Heavy Seas’ Partner Ships Series is this collab with Terrapin. Coming in August, Rye Wit is definitely unique. The two breweries developed a Rye Witbier (already unique) and then aged it for 16 weeks in white wine barrels. Okay, so that’s a bit bizarre. Luckily, we trust both of these breweries and will definitely be giving it a try when it hits shelves. Link


Barrel-Aged Rye Wit / ABV: 6%

Columbus Bodhi

Bodhi isn’t new. In fact, it’s been around for a while. But now, for the first time, you can get the super-duper awesome Double IPA from Columbus Brewing Co. in bottles. Yes, the draft legend is now available for home consumption. As early champions of this beer, we couldn’t be more excited. Who wants to hop in our van to Ohio? Link


Double IPA / ABV: 8.3%

Victory Berliner Weisse with Elderflower

The third installment in Victory’s Blackboard Series is the kind of summer brew we can get behind. Victory’s new Berliner Weisse is brewed with elderflower for a delicate, tart flavor and then amped up to 5.2% ABV, making it a stronger Berliner Weisse than most. If you like to knock back an easy drinker under the sun, and have a penchant for Warheads, consider picking up a 6-pack. Link
