Hopslam | Double IPA

Bell’s Brewery | Kalamazoo, MI

ABV: 10%  |  IBU: N/A
$17.99  |  6-Pack Cans

Hopslam season has returned! This legendary double IPA brewed with honey has been wowing fans since 2006 and it hasn’t lost any of its luster! Expect a rich, viscous texture and a heady aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, and a touch of candied orange.

Stardust to Stardust | Imperial IPA

North High Brewing Co. | Columbus, OH

ABV: 8.8%  |  IBU: N/A
$13.99  |  6-Pack Cans

I love this time of year, when so many delicious, once-a-year hoppy beers get released. Stardust to Stardust was originally brewed to honor the late, great David Bowie and has been brewed annually ever since because of its popularity. This beer rules!

Pacer | IPA

Avery Brewing Company | Boulder, CO

ABV: 4.5%  |  IBU: N/A
$9.99  |  6-Pack Cans

This low-calorie session IPA is only 100 calories per can. It’s also a danky little beer! Mosaic and Amarillo hops lead the way with a strong hop profile and only enough malt to make this an actual beer. A little hazy, full of hop flavor, and available year-round!

Kitka | Chocolate Coconut Milk Stout

Brew Kettle Brewing Company | Strongsville, OH

ABV: 5.8%  |  IBU: N/A
$10.99  |  6-Pack Cans

This milk stout is a Mounds bar in a can and, by the way, I actually like this better now that it is packaged in cans. This is a milk stout with lactose, Belgian chocolate, cocoa powder, and dry-spiced with coconut. Sweet, easy drinking, and delightful.
