Resurgence CitMo IPA is Back in Cans

Remember Resurgence Brewing’s CitMo IPA (6.5% ABV)? Its back again in can form. Now you can take home CitMo IPA, or give it as a gift, in limited handy dandy 16oz. 4-pack cans on December 2 at 1pm. The New England-style IPA is brewed with, you guessed it, Citra and Mosaic hops to give it fresh, white grapefruit and spicy tropical fruit flavors with pine resin and zesty bitterness. “This brew will slap you in the face with its huge aromatics of pineapple and citrus,” the brewery says of CitMo. “It’s a little “heady,” if you know what we mean.” More info here.

Pressure Drop Brewing Opens in Barrel Factory

Pressure Drop Brewing, helmed by former Knee Deep Brewing hopsmeister and Buffalo native Karl Kolbe, is now open in the Barrel Factory in the Old First Ward. The new brewery, which will focus on hoppy West Coast style beers, has a pair of beers on tap in the Lakeward Spirits tasting room, Strummer, a Belgian Blonde Ale and Sticky Trees, a 6% single hop IPA with Mosaic hops. Kolbe says that a Simcoe/Mosaic Double IPA, Brown Ale, Coffee Cream Porter, possibly an ESB, Triple IPA and a Belgian Imperial Stout are coming soon.
