7 IPAs To Keep You Winter Fresh

Winter might not be the first season most people think of when they hear the term IPA. But, for hopheads, IPAs are a year ‘round indulgence. To a dedicated hop aficionado, an après ski at the bottom of the slopes is just as fitting of a place to sip a juicebomb as plopped on a cozy couch watching football. Fireside: grab an IPA. Hot tubbing: bring an IPA along for the soak. For fans of the style, there are more reasons to drink an IPA in the winter than hot cocoa. Winter-ready IPAs can be elusive, so to make your hunt easier, here are 7 Hoppy Winter Seasonals you can have sent straight to your door via Tavour’s independent craft beer delivery app:

5 IPAs That (Literally) Rock!

Whether it’s a hazy New England IPA, or a crisp West Coast IPA, brewery-band collabs offer fans of both realms something unique. An opportunity to engage and interact with their idols in totally new (and deliciously hoppy) ways! There’s nothing quite like putting on your favorite band’s album and cracking into an IPA they helped make.

Five Fabulously Fruity IPAs!

Back in early 2000s, during the height of the bitter beer craze, a typical IPA slammed into the tastebuds with all the subtlety of semi-truck full of hops. People called these beers ‘palate wreckers,’ and they meant it as a compliment. But hey, it was a weird time. People across the country walked around with frosted tip hairstyles like members of a boy band. And high definition TV was just beginning to show us how big celebrity’s pores actually are. Thankfully, Hollywood makeup artists have adapted to high def, and tastebud terrorizing hop bombs are almost as rare as bleached hair.

The Summer Beer Drought is Coming! Here's How to Avoid It

Travel back in time a couple decades, and you’d likely find your parents sipping the same beer every time they had a drink. Until the recent craft boom, beer fans were very brand loyal. Now, we’re in an age of brewing creativity — it’s common for beer aficionados to pick out a new brew every time they shop. Finding new summer beers this year has been a lot more difficult thanks to COVID-19. Data shows, due to social-distancing restrictions, breweries are registering nearly 50% less new beers in 2020 than last year. In a nutshell, this means fewer beer options, and many breweries are sticking to tried-and-true flagships and old favorites. Adaptation has been the key for breweries to stay afloat during the pandemic — and those that are prospering noticed the ways people shop for beer has changed, so they quickly moved with the times. App-based craft beer delivery sites like Tavour have helped keep breweries’ doors open and allowed them to continue to churn out a variety of new beers. So, even though it might feel like we’re in a serious new summer-beer drought, there's a wide selection of new summer-beer releases coming to Tavour. Here are a few to look forward to!

10 Milkshake IPA Breweries that Beat Your Local Ice Cream Parlor

The Milkshake IPA combines two of humanity’s finest achievements — milkshakes and beer! And while the style is new, it’s based on a decades-old dream. Just check out this quote from 1945: “If a man ordered a beer milkshake, he thought, he’d better do it in a town where he wasn’t known. But then, a man with a beard, ordering a beer milkshake in a town where he wasn’t known — they might call the police.”That’s from Cannery Row by John Steinbeck, and is perhaps the first-ever reference to a beer milkshake. Fortunately, things have changed since the 40’s — beards are no longer considered a sign of moral decay, and breweries all over the country are making beer milkshakes in the form of Milkshake IPAs!What exactly is a Milkshake IPA?

10 Berliner Weisse Craft Beers to Quench Your Summer Thirst!

Berliner Weisse is back in a big way! It seems like every brewery on the block is cranking out some version of this refreshingly tart brew. Pretty wild for a beer style that almost died out over a century ago! Berliner Weisse first appeared in Northern Germany, way back in the 1600s. By the late 1800s, folks all over Berlin couldn’t get enough, and more than 70 breweries produced a version. But just 100 years later, Pilsners and Lagers reigned supreme, and only two breweries in the city continued to make Berliner Weisse. Luckily, a new wave of American craft breweries swooped in to save the day! Now the style is common in craft beer bars and bottleshops across the U.S. With so many to choose from, it can be hard to know where to begin. So, here are 10 can’t-lose Berliner Weisse beers to keep you refreshed this summer!
