We've been doing a lot of work "researching" new beers lately (terribly tough life we lead here) and we've got a ton of exciting new stuff coming into Beer Hawk HQ at the end of this month. I'm super pumped about the new lines we're getting as well as further expansions into important styles. As such, March's Beer Club is going to profile some fabulous key beers alongside some other great ones that haven't made it into a Beer Club yet--our Unsung Heroes.

 

For those that prefer the Beer Club Strong you'll be pleased to see the silky and complex--and a whopping 10.5% ABV--Founders Brewing Co. Imperial Stout. With Spring coming up on us fast (hear that, Spring? Fast.) the Imperial Stout is a good way to enjoy these last days of cold weather. If you think that hops will bring on the sunshine, however, the Strong case also features the citrus-loaded Flying Dog Double Dog Double IPA. This beer is HUGE--11.5%--and beautiful.

Subscribers to both the Beer Club Normal and Strong will be happy to see two more cans from the great Beavertown Brewery. The Beavertown Black Betty is one of my favorites of theirs. Described as a Black IPA, don't let the irony confuse you--it's awesome. Huge tropical aromas and a hint of roast, this can is fantastic inside and out.

So is their Smog Rocket--another inclusion in both cases. This smoked porter has great smoky notes thanks to the addition of some smoked malts from Bamberg, Germany. Big flavours of molasses, dried fruits and caramel help to showcase the resinous Chinook hop. It's not a huge chewy beer rather, just a really great drink.

My favorite unsung hero to make its way into both the Normal and the Strong cases this month is the always-refreshing Nogne Pale Ale. This Pale Ale is big on hops; tropical, citrus and resin notes are prominent. Its dry, lingering bitter finish makes this Norwegian import crazy drinkable. Perfect for--cough, cough--Spring.

Alongside some solid choices from Brewdog, Tiny Rebel and La Trappe, the Beer Club Normal case also includes one of my favorite Thornbridge beers: Kipling. Made exclusively with the delicious Nelson Sauvin hop this subtly sweet pale ale finishes long hoppy and bitter.

Suffice it to say that this month's Beer Club is a great one and we're happy to be able to include some of our favorites to make sure they get their time in the sun (Yes, I'm talking to you Sun.) We hope you enjoy yours when you get it.

Thanks for subscribing!
