Lakewood Brewing Announces Its Summer Releases

imageFrom Lakewood:

Dallas, TX: Lakewood Brewing Company is releasing 2 summer seasonal beers: Dry-hopped Zomer Pils in 6 pack cans and Artsy Tartsy on draft.

Zomer Pils, a Bavarian-style pilsner, is now dry-hopped with Lemondrop and noble variety hops to add a touch of citrusy, grassy aroma and flavor. It’s still the crisp, bright, refreshing, and thirst-quenching craft brew that everyone loves.

“We’re excited to re-release Zomer with this little hoppy twist,” stated Wim Bens, Founder & President of Lakewood Brewing Company. “As huge fans of lagers and pilsners in particular, we love nothing more than to kick back with an ice cold pilsner on a hot afternoon.”

With the surge in popularity that pilsners are starting to see once again, Zomer is a prime example of why the style is highly underrated. Wim adds, “We honestly didn’t think this beer could get any more refreshing, but proved ourselves wrong with this brew.”

Artsy Tartsy, a Berliner-style Weisse beer, introduces a summer touch of peaches. You will find it super refreshing, light and tart, and just the thing to battle those hot Texas days. Once a Taproom and special event-only beer, this is the first release of Artsy Tartsy to the community at large.

“Artsy Tartsy is just as refreshing, with a slightly fruitier spin on it,” stated Wim. “Nothing screams summer in Texas quite like fresh peaches. Any road trip through the hill country will be greeted with stands full of peaches. We chose a Berliner Weisse since the style pairs so well with fruit. The added tartness and low ABV and bitterness make it highly drinkable.”
Both summer releases will be available throughout DFW starting all this week and throughout the summer months, with more markets in the coming weeks.


Victory - Winter Cheers 2017

imageWhile you’re prepping the grill for Memorial Day, Victory is preparing their Winter Cheers.  This “celebratory wheat ale” will slide in at 6.7%-AbV and this is the new 12oz bottle.


Lakefront Brewery's Riverwest Stein now in Cans

imageFrom Lakefront:

MILWAUKEE, WI  (May 27, 2017) – For 30 years, Lakefront Brewery has been crafting a crowd favorite in its Riverwest Stein beer. But it’s now available in cans for the very first time. “Putting a craft beer in cans was unthinkable when we started,” said Russ Klisch, co-founder and owner of Lakefront Brewery. “Now, it’s becoming the norm. We’re actually a bit late to the game, but that’s okay.”

Along with six-pack and twelve-pack bottles of Riverwest, twelve-pack cans are hitting the shelves just in time for Memorial Day weekend. 12-ounce cans are the first for the 30-year-old brewery and 16-ounce cans are being planned for the first week of July.

“We put our number one selling brand in a can,” said Chris Johnson, Director of Business Development, “And the great thing about cans is summertime. The ballpark, picnics, the beach or anywhere else you want easy, portable craft, here you go.”

Riverwest Cans should be available anywhere you usually buy Lakefront products. The big question is what’s next in cans for the brewery. IPA? Eastside Dark Lager? Or possibly the new Lakefront Pils due out later this summer. “For now, we’re canning Riverwest,” said Klisch. We have a thorough process of quality control and we travel at our own speed. The next Lakefront can will be out sooner than you may think. Possibly.”

Burial Beer Releasing First Bottles Sour Beers From Their Mixed Culture program

imageFrom Burial Beer:

The first offerings from Burial Beer’s Mixed Culture Program are set to release this Sunday, May

28th at 12pm from their South Slope taproom with no distribution of these limited bottles slated.

Fall of the Damned is a 500ml Bourbon Barrel Aged Sour Red Ale that began in a Brunello

foudre where it rested for 3 months before moving to bourbon barrels for 9 months and then was

blended and racked onto 2lbs of blackberries and marionberries per gallon for additional aging.

The Separation of Light and Darkness (750ml) is the first beer the brewery aged in their 30 barrel

oak foedre. A clean saison fermentation was aged on carefully-selected cultures of brettanomyces

and lactobacillus for 12 months before dry-hopping with a mild dose of hops.

These two packaged sour offerings are the first beers to arise from their 10 barrel system at their

original location and marks the full transition of that brewery into a Mixed Culture and sour


"We have a pretty specific plan for fermentation, which includes at least three separate

fermentations for each beer, if not more,” explains Co-Founder, Doug Reiser. “We institute clean

fermentations in steel, then brett ferments in our foudres before dropping the pH considerably in

small format oak barrels with pronounced bacterial culture. It has been a lot of fun dreaming up

the complex steps of each of these beers, some of which are planned years in advance."

Burial’s Mixed Culture program is centered around the Solera Method which borrows from wine

practices of fractionally blending beers of various ages.

“Solera allows us to maintain a fairly stable environment in our oak foudres, not opening and exposing

them to the elements, and maintaining their on-going and continual fermentation activity,” says Reiser.

“We get to stay consistent with this platform, though each vessel offers a different culture.”

The brewery hopes to offer a robust Mixed Culture program that honors both traditional methods

while staying true to the explorative roots that have helped to place them on the map in the
