New Beer Friday - August 5 Edition

Alright people, brace yourselves. New arrivals this week include two seasonal beers traditionally associated with the cooler autumn months--Buffalo Bills Pumpkin Ale and Hofbrau Octoberfest. Are these arrivals premature? Maybe. We would ask you, though, to think of them not as a sign that summer's almost over, but rather as a sneak preview of the great harvest beers to come. It's only early August after all--there's plenty of time to sip the summer seasonals still stacked on Siciliano's shelves. (Try saying that five times fast.)

New & Returning Beers

    • New Holland Beerhive Tripel, $8.19/22oz - "Little John’s local bees create a spring wildflower-honey that lends a sweet, earthy complexity to a traditional style of beer with a balancing snap of ginger in the finish" (source).
    • New Holland el Mole Ocho, $8.19/22oz - NHBC calls this an "exploration into the flavors of mole, the legendary sauce of central Mexico. Malty aroma and rich, cocoa-laden body laced with an invigorating tinge of dried chilies and coffee" (source).
    • Buffalo Bills Pumpkin Ale, $1.49/12oz - "A true original microbrew that uses baked and roasted pumpkins. Cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg are added to create what has been described as pumpkin pie in a bottle" (source).
    • Hofbrau Octoberfest, $1.79/12oz - According to Hofbrau, this is "a rich, full-bodied beer which goes down ideally with traditional Bavarian cuisine." Weisswurst anyone?
    • O'Fallons Wheach in cans, $1.59/12oz - Though this beer has been available in bottles for several weeks, the cans are a new arrival, and 20 cents cheaper too!
    • Tommyknocker Hop Strike Black Rye-PA, $1.79/12oz - Despite what the name implies, this beer is brewed in Colorado, nowhere near the township of Rye, PA.
