Jolly Pumpkin, maker of self-proclaimed Artisan Ales, has a year-round offering I’ve just began to notice. Their Calabaza Blanca, a Belgian Biere Blanche according to them, is aged in oak casks and bottle fermented. I picked up a 750 ml bottle of batch 590/591 with a bottling date of 7-21-10. This mild Witbier-take sits at 4.8% ABV and is spiced with orange peel and coriander.

Magic Hat is a brewery that many individuals start with for the true introduction to craft beer. I know many of my friends that have tried Magic Hat #9 and have never looked back. This year, they brought us the return of the Blind Faith IPA at 6.2% ABV, a bit lower than the IPA-norm.
