Local Breweries Lighten the Mood with Tasty Spring Beers

Bring on the longer, warmer days. Put away the puffy jackets, snow shovels and salt-crusted boots. It’s time to feed the soul with green hillsides, chirping birdies, budding trees, baseball and, of course, spring beers. We got around to a few, beloved NEPA brewhouses to see what’s on tap this season. Check out this list of local spring brews.

Berliner Weisse Sour Ale / ABV: 5.5%

“Lacto-Kooler is our flavored Berliner Weisse.  We made this sour ale with a lot of “green” giving the beer it’s unique taste and color.  It’s the perfect balance between sweet and sour with notes of citrus.”

Old Oak – Gratzer Style

Smoked Wheat Ale / ABV: 3%

“An old-world beer style, originated in Poland and popular in parts of Germany. Nearly extinct, but thanks to the craft beer scene, it’s making a bit of a comeback. Characteristically a light-colored beer, brewed exclusively with oak smoked wheat malt, for an assertive smokiness. Low alcohol, coming in at 3%, prominent hop presence throughout, using German and Czech hops for a mild, herbal character. Very clean and surprisingly refreshing. A unique beer from days of the past.”

Red Plague

Irish Red Ale / ABV: 4.8%

“Brewed in honor of our Brewer Emeritus’ wife, Red Plague is a sessionable & traditional Irish Red Ale.  It has a hearty body painted by strong strokes of Malta and toffee with a small peck of roastiness. Nothing is more romantic than a prince running away from death.”

American Blonde

Blonde Ale / ABV: 5.0%

“Bringing back an old classic for our 15th Anniversary. We originally made this as a light, session addition to an afternoon of golfing, and this idea still rings true. This recipe is all about drinkability, made with 100% American grown and malted pilsner with a light touch of Comet hops grown in Michigan. Cheers to 15 years of making grew brews.”

A Dream of Spring

Farmhouse/Saison / ABV: 6.5%

“Sun kissed gold in color with a billow of cloudy head, the nose greets you with the smell of locally sourced honey and chamomile. Steeped in the wort and then “dry chamomiled”, you’ll dream of the days spent lying in a spring meadow.”

Intrepid Irish Red

Red Ale / ABV: 5.7%

“We keep it old school with this one. Brewed with 100% English malted pale, crystal and black roast malts. We late hop with English Fuggle to give the beer a mild grassy hop aroma that is typical in classic style red ale.”
