Hot on the heels of their Chanterelle Cream Ale and Double Bit IPA Big Axe Brewery started brewing a new seasonal, Maple Wheat Amber Ale with pure sap right from their property.

Sea Level brewing has released its next seasonal called The Southern Cross IPA. This I.P.A. is inspired by a funky New Zealand Hop and Crosby, Stills & Nash song called ‘Southern Cross'. It is layered with a resiny spiciness that gives way to a fresh squeezed citrus aroma with subtle pine notes. This beer will be available on the brewery’s shelves by next week and comes in at 6.5% ABV and 78.8 IBUs.

Stillwell Beer Bar's 2nd release of Bellwoods Brewery is happening this Sunday. They say that Brettal Head All Brett Pale Ale, Lost River Baltic Porter and Hellwoods Russian Imperial Stout will be pouring from noon.
