Night Shift Brewing Updates: New Beers, Sour Futures Program
Night Shift Brewing is always busy it seems. Or almost always. They’re currently putting the finishing touches on their new space that they should be moving to very shortly but for the time being, they’ve decided to yet again release another beer. Actually a couple if you count last week’s smoked IPA known as ‘Smokeshow‘. The hops in the beer were actually smoked at Blue Ribbon BBQ’s Arlington location which makes for a neat collaboration. The smoked hops give Smokeshow aromas of ham and flavors of smokey citrus. That one is available on draft and for 32oz growler fills at the brewery.
In related news, tomorrow, starting at 3PM, they will also be releasing their newest addition to their Art Series, ‘El Lechedor’. This Mexican-style milk stout is brewed with poblano peppers and then later on aged with cinnamon sticks, vanilla beans and nutmeg in oak barrels. According to the brewery, this beer “sips like a fresh, creamy cinnamon roll“. There will be a 4 bottle per person limit on this beer and it will also be available on draft for both small and big pours. This is the twentieth beer that they’ve brewed as a part of their highly experimental art series and is sure to be a hit. It is also slighyly reminiscent of a previous beer they had done, known as ‘Holy Mole!‘, which was a blend of their Taza Stout and their Viva Habanera.
Last but not least, the brewery wants to remind everyone that this it the last week where they’ll be taking pre-orders via their Sour Futures program. Available via the program are Ever Weisse, Somer Weisse, Mainer Weisse, Cape Codder Weisse and a mystery Weisse one which has yet to be defined.
