For the past year, Stone Brewing has made fresh beer a priority with their Enjoy By series of IPAs. Now, they are turning the tables with Stone Enjoy After 10/31/15 Brett IPA. This beer has Brettanomyces added, a wild yeast that, over time, brings about some complexities that you won't get when it's fresh. That's why Stone recommends you drink this one next fall, after keeping it out of sunlight and between 50-70 degrees. Of course, feel free to crack it open whenever, but understand that it won't be fully carbonated yet, and probably won't have reached its full potential.
When a high-five isn't enough, look no further than Sky-Five IPA from Bauhaus Brew Labs in Minneapolis. This new brewery is quickly becoming known for their German-inspired beer styles, but show they can knock an American IPA out of the park as well. It's a sweet, zesty, hop-forward offering, balanced out nicely by German and British malts. Packaged in these eye catching cans, it's no wonder Bauhaus is a brewery on the rise.
Already known as one of the top vodka makers in the world, Grey Goose continues to pioneer rather than follow fickle trends. Grey Goose VX is a great example, crafted with a hint of cognac, which gives it a truly distinctive aroma and flavor profile without interfering with the vodka experience. And make no mistake, this isn't a fly by night flavored spirit, but rather a high quality vodka housed in a beautiful bottle, that stands apart thanks to the small cognac influence, while remaining delicately balanced and unique.
