New Beers for August…

Oh man, it is a scorcher on the ol' Acreage today...

Yesterday I overheard someone on the street expressing their disdain for the overly hot weather we've been having. Sitting out front of the Acreage now I feel as though its all a matter of perspective. So to help all of us stay level-headed in the heat we brought in 3 new beers for August that I am really excited about (but I chose them, so....): Pelican Brewery's India Pelican Ale, the Pinkus Organic Munster Alt Beer, and Jolly Pumpkin's Oro De Calabaza.

All three pair well with insane heat: big refreshing hops with the Pelican, the Munster Alt is smooth drinking with hints of banana and bready yeasts, and the Oro De Calabaza... what can I say? This is easily the most interesting beer I have had in months. Those with savvy and/or curiosity would do well to take note of this odyssey (limited to 20 bottles).

Check out the Oro De Calabaza here.
