From the Minhas Craft Brewery comes the Simpler Times Pilsner which carries an ABV of 5.5 %. Minhas is the second oldest brewery in America, so they must be doing a few things right. Let's check out this offering.
Minhas Brewery Description:
There are times when an
ice-cold beer fits the bill. This is an easy-drinking brew that’s
reliably tasty without being fussy. It’s a straightforward beer with
good hop flavor without it being over the top. This speaks of a simpler
time when you could order a beer, and they wouldn’t bring you a full
menu. They’d just bring a good beer at a good price. Life can be
complicated, but your beer does not have to be. Enjoy the taste of
From Horny Goat Brewing: This beer is brewed to be clean and crisp with
the hops slightly edging out the malt on the taste. A generous addition
of German hops will leave the finish quite dry which is accentuated by
the softness on the palate given by the white wheat. Horny Blonde took
Silver in the Premium Lager category at the 2012 Great International
Bell's Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with
Bell's signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with
mildly fruity aromas. The addition of wheat malt lends a smooth
mouthfeel, making it a classic summer beer.
From Samuel Adams: This crisp pale ale is named after Crystal hops grown
in Oregon, which give the beer its distinctive American hop character.
That classic aroma and citrusy, floral flavor that the Crystal hops
provide is accented by the subtle earthiness of UK hops and balanced by a
deep yet subtle malt sweetness with notes of toffee.
Winter Solstice® is our take on the classic style of “winter warmer.”
Boasting a deep amber hue and rich mouthfeel, its creamy finish will
lift your spirits. Hints of toffee, spice, and caramel tease the senses
making this the perfect ale to share with friends and family during the
cold days and long nights of winter.

A look at Newcastle Brown Ale, which is a brand of beer produced by
Heineken International. The beer was introduced in 1927 in Newcastle
upon Tyne, England, by Newcastle Breweries, which became Scottish &
Newcastle in 1960. In 2005, brewing was moved out of Newcastle for the
first time to the other side of the River Tyne, to Dunston in Gateshead.
In 2009, it was announced that production would move to Tadcaster North
Company Description: Soft Parade is a gourmet specialty pour that is brewed with toasted rye
flakes and two-row malted barley. Loaded with pureed strawberries,
blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, we refer to this fermented
potion as a fruit infused rye ale. The result is a refreshing fruit
delicacy that is easy to drink, visually appealing, and finishes dry.
Soft Parade was originally developed because Joe Short wanted to create a
beer that incorporated a medley of berries, had a great color, and
appealed to wine drinkers.

Huma Lupa Licious’ name derives from the hop plant, Humulus lupulus. It
is Short’s best-selling India Pale Ale. Huma Lupa Licious is brewed with
five different hop varieties, providing a punch to the palate. Between
the beer’s abundance of hops, and the type of hops used in its creation,
it has a delicious bitter taste and enticing citrus aroma. The hearty
malt bill melds well with the hops for a perfect balance. Huma is the
product of Joe Short wanting to create the ultimate IPA experience.
Originally, Huma Lupa Licious was named Humulus Lupulus Maximus, and
went through several recipe changes before settling on the recipe we
know and love today.
