Iron Fist Brewing Slips Into August with Limited Release of Night Creep Black DIPA

Night_Creep_Press_Can_01Iron Fist Brewing Company (Vista, California) has officially announced that Night Creep Black DIPA will release on August 9 as the 7th installment in the brewery’s Small Batch Experiments Series.

Carefully crafted to set itself apart from the three IPAs already in Iron Fist’s Core lineup as well as in the always IPA-saturated beer scene in the San Diego area, Night Creep is a “dark and different” Black Double India Pale Ale that utilizes an “unusual” yeast strain that “[brings] a distinctive flavor to a DIPA.”  To round off the recipe, the brewing team at Iron Fist used “choice kiln roasted malt [to impart] not only blackness but a mild toast undertone” while a “blend of earthy dank hops and overtones of citrus, floral and pine hops” provide balance. Night Creep comes in at a sneaky 8.5% ABV and 70 IBUs.

“Many DIPA’s have a very perceivable high ABV, so the alcohol comes in quite hot. With Night Creep we set out to create a DIPA that is full bodied, drinkable, that pushes the boundaries of the style without crossing into Stout territory.”

– Tom Garcia, Iron Fist Brewmaster

Night Creep will officially debut on Friday, August 9 in Iron Fist Brewing Company’s Vista and Barrio Logan taprooms.  This Limited Release offering will be available in limited-edition 12 oz. cans and on draft.

Heavy Seas Beer Brings the Local Flavor with Taproom Release of Bmore Snoball Egg Custard Blonde Ale

BmoreSnoballSquareHeavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has officially announced that it will release Bmore Snoball, an Egg Custard Blonde Ale, as its newest Taproom Exclusive on Friday, July 26.

“Egg Custard” might seem like an interesting flavor choice for a Limited Release Blonde Ale, but Bmore Snoball has local history behind it as it is inspired by “the original snoball flavor of Baltimore that was introduced when ice was first made available for commercial use during the Industrial Revolution.” As ice blocks were transported across the East Coast during that time, many of those shipments passed through Baltimore. Children in the area would often request ice shavings to cool them off during the summer months, and their mothers eventually “decided to start making syrups to flavor the ice by using a recipe of vanilla, sugar, and eggs. Today, the flavor is just named Egg Custard and is simply a golden colored vanilla syrup (it does not taste like eggs).”

Now that we are all caught up on the history and inspiration behind Bmore Snoball (5.5% ABV), here’s what the brewery has to say about what you can expect from the beer itself:

“We used imported, nutty Maris Otter Pale malt as the base for this Blonde Ale inspired by the classic Baltimore summer treat,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. “A touch of Munich Malt provides a hint of bready character to go with a whisper of Strisselspalt hops. To replicate the Egg Custard Snoball flavor, we’ve added vanilla (LOTS of vanilla!) and just a touch of nutmeg and cinnamon. The result is a beer with a comforting aroma, a sweet dessert-like start and a surprisingly soft finish.”

Bmore Snoball will make its debut on July 26 in the Heavy Seas Tap Room. This Taproom Exclusive offering will be available for purchase in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft.  Bmore Snoball will not see distribution.  Prost!
