Nothing is quite so anticipated as a new beer. Sure, we all have our favorites. But there is something special about discovering a brand new beer for the first time and examining its color, nose, taste, finish, etc. This is why a membership to the Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club is so special. Each month, it brings you 4 new beers to sample, many of which are unavailable in one’s local area.
The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club is about to turn 20 and to commemorate the club and all the pleasure it has brought to its members, New York’s Shmaltz Brewing has created a new beer. Many know Shmaltz Brewing for its tongue-in-cheek He’Brew beer lineup and for its manywell- received, well- respected products. The new product created for the occasion is called Mazel Hops. Here are some facts about this new brew:
Name: Mazel Hops
Style: Double IPA
Malts: Specialty 2- Row, CaraMunich60, Munich, Vienna, and Wheat
Hop Varieties: Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Citra, Crystal, and Warrior
Alcohol Level: 8.9 percent by volume
Mazel Hops is a big beer and its boldness is appropriate for such a big event. Shmaltz Brewing plans to package the new beer in 12 oz. bottles and release just in time for the Beer of the Month Club’s 20th anniversary. The new beer also coincides with Shmaltz Brewing’s rebirth in Clifton Park, New York.
