New Beer Friday - June 17th Edition

What's the old saying - you can't step in the same river twice? Seems true enough. Just as true would be to say that you can't shop the same Siciliano's Market twice, not with all the new stuff that comes in every week, new craft beer in particular.

Here's the list of this week's new arrivals, some hitting the shelves for the very first time, some for the first time this year. Whichever the case, we hope you enjoy!

This week's new beer

    • Great Lakes Lake Erie Monster, $3.29/12oz - Bittered with Simcoe, flavored with Fuggle, at 9.1% ABV this is, according to the GLBC webstite, "an unfiltered imperial India pale ale with hug hop flavor." (Editor's note: At the time of this writing, we also have a limited supply of sixtels available, $92.00 per 1/6 barrel. Get yours while supplies last!)
    • Steenbrugge Abbey beer, 4 varieties, $8.29/750ml - "In 1084, Arnold of Tiegem founded St. Peter’s Abbey in thriving West Flanders. Legend tells that Arnold, during working hours, would brew beer with which he then used to heal ailing builders. Therefore, not only was his beer much sought after; he himself was declared Patron Saint of Belgian brewers. Luckily, the secret of Steenbrugge Abbey beer’s full-bodied flavor was kept and has since been handed down through generations of brewing masters" (source). Varieties available:
        • Blond
        • Dubbel bruin
        • Tripel
        • Wit
    • Brewery Ommegang Mixed 8-pack, $21.49 - Don't have time to peruse Siciliano's vast beer selection? With this pre-mixed 8-pack, Ommegang does the choosing for you. Package includes two 12oz bottles of each of the following beers:
        • Belgian Pale Ale
        • Abbey Ale Dubbel
        • Hennepin Farmhouse Saison
        • Three Philosphers
    • Southern Tier Mocha Stout, $9.29/22oz - an imperial stout brewed with chocolate and coffee (11.2% ABV).
    • Magic Hat Wacko Pale Ale, $1.59/12oz - According to the Magic Hat website, this beer is "the liquid song of summer", not to be confused with "the semi-porous vibrato of mid to late June", which is something altogether different.
