Take 5 – For the first time in four years, Harpoon Brewery has added a new brew to its annual lineup—Take 5 Session IPA. Harpoon claims this IPA is a relatively “hoppy” beer; while it’s not too bitter it does have a prominent malt taste. To kick off the new release, the brewery will be including Take 5 in its yearly “HarpoonFest,” so if you’re planning on attending, be sure to take at least five.
Orange Moonshine – Ole Smoky Moonshine is at it again with their new orange flavored offering. Until recently, the orange addition has only been available to buy directly at the distillery. Now, you can pick up a bottle at your local liquor store and enjoy its citrusy taste all by its lonesome or mixed with your favorite beer, shandy-style.
Bock Bock – Shmaltz Brewing Company introduced its “highly coveted,” barrel-aged brew this past week, naming the novel booze “Bock Bock.” Available for purchase in 22 ounce bottles and on tap at select bars through May 2015, the beer has a malt body that’s complimented by notes of nuts and caramel, giving it a traditional bock base.
Philly X Baltimore – Baltimore’s Heavy Sees Beer is collaborating with Philadelphia’s Yards Brewing Company to bring you “Philtimore,” an English-style pale ale. The brew will ultimately be made at the Baltimore brewery just in time for Washington DC’s SAVOR festival, an American craft beer and food experience beginning in early June.
Blade and Bow – When it comes to Bourbon, Kentucky knows best. That’s why, in order to pay homage to Louisville’s famous Stitzel-Weller Distillery, Blade and Bow Bourbon has released a Straight Bourbon Whiskey offering. The spirit has hints of dried fruit complete with a woodsy after taste, ideal for those who enjoy their bourb straight on the rocks.
