Portland, Maine’s Allagash Brewing Company has launched North Sky, a new stout, and is bringing back fan-favorite Haunted House, a dark hoppy ale. North Sky is at 7.5% and brewed with a Belgian yeast to impart fruit character to the beer’s roasty core, according to the company. Haunted House is a 6.66% abv ale brewed with roasted barley and Blackprinz malt, plus Crystal, Nugget, Cascade, and Northern Brewer hops. Both brews will roll out this month in 4-packs of 16-ounce cans across the brewery’s distribution footprint. North Sky will also be available on draft at a later date.
Middlebury, Vermont’s Aqua ViTea has launched two new flavors in its AfterGlow line of hard kombucha. The releases—Cherry Sour and Apricot Dream—come in at 5% abv and expand the AfterGlow line up to four, including the previously released Ginger Blue and Citrus Rush. AfterGlow Hard Kombucha is available in 4-packs for $10 and 6-packs for $12 in select markets.
Abita Springs, Louisiana’s Abita Brewing Company has added Jockamo Juicy IPA to its year-round lineup. The 6% abv ale is brewed with Citra and Apollo hops, plus a blend of experimental hop varieties to create a hazy IPA with tropical fruit flavors. Jockamo Juicy IPA is now rolling out in 6-packs of 12-ounce cans and on draft throughout Abita’s distribution footprint. Abita is the 24th-largest craft brewer in the U.S., according to the Brewers Association.
