This Week in Beer: June 12, 2019

Cigar City Brewing is here!   This is a long overdue addition to the market.  The brewery was founded in 2007 and operates out of Tampa, Florida.   4 packages are included in the launch: Jai Alai, Guayabera, Maduro, and a mixed 12 pack.   We also have kegs of a couple of the beers.  Be on the lookout for growler fills! Last but not least, it should be noted this batch of Jai Alai was canned on JUNE 6TH!  Save for taking a pour straight from the tank, it really doesn’t get much fresher than that! Freshhhhh hops, bruh!

    Don’t forget about our month long sale on growler fills!  For the entire month of June all growler fills are 20% off!  We’ve got a great variety across the 3 stores’ taps, including an especially heavy focus on local brands.   Our friends at Double Shift (Crossroads) may as well call it a tap takeover, they currently have 3-4 beers on tap per Mike’s location!  From sours, to hops, to a refreshing kolsch - you’re sure to find something tasty. Another recent growler favorite of mine is Defiance Brewing’s Big Money.  This hazy IPA tastes like an orange cream soda, and while that maybe sounds crazy... it’s absurdly good!  Check out the tap lists on our website and on the Untappd app.

    Be sure to stop by and peruse all of the new arrivals from this week and the past week.   Tons of new items are in from breweries such as: Libertine, ToØl, Bellwoods, Hoof Hearted, Maplewood, and Prairie, among many others!   Speaking of Maplewood, we’re just about out of Juice Pants, so if you were holding out on picking some up, now is the time!  Worry not though, their new session IPA Crushinator drops tomorrow.   

Last but certainly not least, our friends at City Barrel Brewing (Crossroads) will be delivering a new batch of Rad AF before the week is up!  This double dry hopped hazy IPA comes in 4pks of 12oz cans, and will be available at all 3 locations just in time for the weekend.   Drink local!

Have a great rest of your week!
