The warm weather is around the corner and the ideas are flowing for new beers at Olde Salem! Two of those have already been brewed: one, a dryhopped Pilsner featuring Loral and debittered Citra hops, should satisfy both hopheads and lighter beer drinkers looking to expand their horizons; also, a Belgian Quad that may be our strongest beer yet with dark fruit, caramel and raisin notes. This one may need a little age, so be patient! We also have our sights set on a new sour, modeled after one of our favorite cocktails. We'll just leave it at that for now...
In addition to these, we'll have an old favorite returning towards the end of the month - Phat Rabbit, a unique Saison brewed with honey and pink guava. Another old favorite returns today - Plush with Mangoes and Pineapples! This Belgian Blonde packs a lot of flavor and an elevated alcohol content (7%) but finishes dry with a light body. Also being released today is a brand new hazy New England IPA with an old name - Renegade IPA brings an array of tropical, citrus, and herbal hops flavors and aromas that will keep your attention, featuring El Dorado, Amarillo and Ekuanot hops.
Keep an eye out for our new Main Street Mashup series, a chance for us to play around with new ingredients and variations of your favorite beers! Given the success we've had with it through our first two iterations, we anticipate keeping them rolling weekly. This Saturday, March 2, features a full-blown cherry cheesecake beer, with our Suit & Tie given an addition of graham cracker pie crust. Get there early as these have been selling out in hours!
