Can releases are the definition of blink and you miss it! One moment, I’m salivating over the brews that are dropping for the week, and the next I’ve either secured the brew or am cursing the gods that I wasn’t fast enough! However, with breweries opening back up for pints again, there’s a greater chance to taste these brews, even if I can’t take any home with me.
I was too slow on the draw to grab anything can-wise from the amazing Cellar Works Brewing this week. However, all of the brews that I need are still available on tap to try! Located north of the city in Sarver, PA, this brewery is churning out several amazing beer series and gaining serious traction in the Pittsburgh craft beer scene. Make the drive, I promise you won’t regret it!
So, on to the releases! Cellar Works is creating some of the most epic smoothie sours in the beer game! They’ve got the fruit whip series, and these are always loaded with flavor. Right now, you can snag a pint of the Tropicale Fruit Whip. This 6% beer is made with lactose, vanilla, and all of the mango, passionfruit, pink guava and pineapple goodness. It’s summer in a cup! And then, there’s the big one. The Puff’d series has been taking the fruited sours world by storm and this one is no different! Orange Tangerine Puff’d (6%) is a smoothie style brew that blends orange, tangerine and marshmallow for a seriously epic dessert sour.
But that’s not all that will satisfy your sweet tooth at Cellar Works! The Dreamscape series is an all time favorite of mine and will satisfy all of your pastry stout needs. Mexican Hot Chocolate Dreamscape is an 11% stout that will warm you right up on a cold night! With strong cinnamon and sweet chocolate notes, these beer is conditioned on a huge amount of cacao nibs, vanilla and Vietnamese cinnamon. With no peppers in the beer, it’s got the right kind of spice!
Not into something sweet? You can check out Nuclear Lizard, a 7.8% IPA conditioned with Vic Secret and CTZ. Expect pineapple, pine and all things dank in this brew! Perfect for all of you hop nerds on there!
Cellar Works is constantly turning out amazing brews. Stay tuned to their social media accounts for next week’s releases! They are open from Wednesday-Saturday each week so be sure to drop by and try these brews ASAP!
