Fat Head's Head Hunter IPA Beer

For those that crave their next hop fix, you might want to look to Ohio instead of the traditional hotbeds on the West Coast. Fat Head's Brewing in North Olmstead has quietly crafted one of the best IPAs around with their dry, piney, aggressively-hopped Head Hunter ($10). And maybe it's not so quiet of a process after all since Head Hunter has taken home medals at the World Beer Cup three years in a row. Ohio might not be a hop hotbed yet, but IPAs like this are getting more and more attention from hopheads.

  • Sprecher Bourbon Barrel Hard Root Beer

    The folks at Sprecher Brewing in Glendale, Wisconsin make a full line of craft beers and gourmet sodas but are probably best known for their root beer. It's so good that for years their customers have asked for a menu mashup, a Hard Root Beer. After plenty of testing, the brewers came up with something to satisfy those customers and that they were proud of — Sprecher Bootlegger's Bourbon Barrel Hard Root Beer ($5/4-pack.) The fermented root beer tastes like a root beer should, but with some oak and bourbon flavors joining the party. It clocks in at 5% ABV, but you'd be surprised at how difficult it is to notice the alcohol. Grab a bottle and satisfy your craving for a good root beer and an alcoholic beverage at the same time.

  • Stone Enjoy By IPA Beer

    Stone Brewing cares so much about how fresh their beer is, they named one of them after the date they want you to consume it by. We usually don't like people telling us what to do, unless they are telling us to drink "devastatingly fresh" beer. Enjoy By IPA ($8) clocks in at 9.4% alcohol by volume and smacks you in the nose with fresh citrusy floral aromas. The sooner you open it the sooner you get the grassy, resiny hop bite, which is a challenge to even the most experienced hop heads. Stone is rolling it out to different states one batch at a time, and it's pretty clear there's no better time to consume a bottle than now.
