Spring may not officially start until later this month, but at Total Wine & More we’re already well into spring beer season. Today, we’re sharing just a few of our favorites so you can get a head start on the season.
Available from January to April, Red Chair NWPA from Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery is a robust IPA that offers a citrus punch. A variety of European and domestic malts give this beer, which boasts a 92-point score from Beer Advocate, lovely caramel flavors that complement its citrus and floral notes.
While seasonal beers are typically offered by craft brewers, even some bigger breweries are getting in on spring. Blue Moon Brewing Co.’s First Peach Ale is an intriguing combination of classic Belgian sour brown Ale with American Peach Wheat Ale. True to its name, it offers flavors of peach, caramel and malt-driven sweetness.
In New England, home of Harpoon Brewery, the arrival of spring is real cause for celebration. Harpoon’s The Long Thaw White IPA offers an abundance of flavors from orange to coriander and a spicy, clean finish. It’s the perfect way to warm up while evenings are still cool.
We couldn’t talk spring beers without paying respect to a beer that celebrates the arrival of the season along with another milestone. The Shiner Birthday Beer from beloved Spoetzl Brewery is a hoppy, German-style Pilsner that celebrates the brewery’s establishment in 1909.
