The 4.5%-abv entry is set to launch in canned six-packs later this month, available across Avery’s 35-state footprint. El Gose marks the eighth offering in the brewer’s year-round lineup, joining White Rascal, India Pale Ale, Joe’s Pils, Ellie’s Brown Ale, Out Of Bounds Stout, Liliko’i Kepolo and Raja Double IPA.
San Diego, California’s Coronado Brewing Company is introducing its Stingray IPA in canned format.

It’s hitting the market in six-packs of 12-ounce cans—as well as its previously launched 12-ounce bottles and draft—across Coronado’s 18-state distribution footprint.

Pale Joe marks the fourth brew in Founders’ ArtPrize series, created to benefit the ArtPrize international art competition in Grand Rapids.
Specialty beer importer Merchant du Vin is preparing to release Samuel Smith’s Yorkshire Stingo 2016, a barrel-aged, bottle-conditioned strong ale. Debuting in limited quantities on August 1, Yorkshire Stingo is at 8% abv and was aged in oak barrels that previously held cask-conditioned ale. Stingo is a traditional strong ale style that originated in the north of England.
