Citra! Citra! Read All About It!
CITRA, CITRA, CITRA is the response we received from Jekyll Brewing Founder Michael Lundmark when asked about the hop profile for Southern Juice, which is one of their year-round core beers. Southern Juice is a lighter IPA that was inspired by the New England IPA style. Lundmark described it as a “Really juicy beer and very New England like without the Haze factor” Lundmark also noted that “while Southern Juice was inspired by the New England style, it’s not a NEIPA, it’s Southern Juice!”
For any of you veteran craft beer drinkers out there, what comes to mind when you hear the phrase “beer fest” mentioned in conversation? Memories of overindulgence fueled by Biolyte and the FOMO of the out-of-state breweries who are pouring their beer? Maybe it’s racing around the room to all the hype tables before your palate is overwhelmingly wrecked. There’s also a good chance that you’ve been in line slamming an IPA taster before hitting the next tap in the row…We’ve all been there.
On Saturday, June 5, Good Word Brewing & Public House hosted a festival in collaboration with the City of Duluth that was one of the first beer-centric events to happen in Georgia since COVID-19 effectively shut down large gatherings a year ago. This was not a typical beer fest, though.
It’s been a long path for Sean Guerrero to reach the grand opening of Jade Mountain Brewery & Teahouse in Aurora, CO. The brewery, which blends American and Asian culture in its beers, celebrates its opening weekend starting on June 11, 2021.

For over a year, breweries have had to walk a most tenuous tightrope in order to keep their businesses afloat. From weathering recurring shutdowns, to navigating government red tape in order to secure small business loans, massive business plan overhauls, to heartbreaking decisions on staffing, breweries have dealt with it all.
Now as nearly 140 million people in the US have received at least their first round of vaccinations and businesses begin reopening, we thought we’d check in with breweries owners of all sizes to see how COVID has impacted their operations for the long run, and what steps they’ve begun taking to reopen.
Zebulon Artisan Ales in Weaverville, North Carolina, is the brainchild of brewer, Mike Karnowski. Ever wonder what a traditional English Barleywine or an IPA from the 1800s might taste like? Mike has researched it. Each beer he makes is a study of history and process. Zebulon Blueberry Sour is a study in fruit — delving into the flavors of the landscape surrounding the brewery.
Last weekend marked the unofficial start to patio beer(s) season. We posed the question on our Instagram account this week, asking if people still drink stouts and strong barrel aged beers during the warmer months. It seems like opinions on the matter vary greatly, and our staff is no exception. Let us know if you still consider summer to be stout season or if you tend to reach for lighter, more refreshing options. This is what we’re drinking to kick off patio season.
Charlotte’s newest brewery Vaulted Oak Brewing is set to open Tuesday, June 8. Housed in an old BB&T bank, Vaulted Oak will be the first brewery in the Oakhurst/Echo Hills neighborhood of Charlotte.
Sparge Brewing Co. has swiftly become one of the hottest spots to visit just north of Fort Collins, in Wellington, CO. They flourish their taps with six staple beers and consistent yet constant rotating seasonals and pilot brews. They have more than adequately displayed their ability to make and create beers of all varieties and styles, and they really seem to be popular all their own.
Welcome to the Colorado Beer Beat, a bi-weekly roundup of all of the new can releases around the state. From Denver to Grand Junction and everywhere in between, we have you covered. Be sure to check back on Thursdays to find out what’s new in the Colorado beer scene.
Well would you look at that, we’ve made it to June already. It seemed like only yesterday the whole country was shutting down, and look where we are now! As summer quickly approaches, more and more releases are popping up, and we’re even seeing a brewery anniversary or two. Now you might be saying, “I drank a bit too much over the long weekend, I think I’m going to take it easy this weekend,” but between the two of us, we both know that isn’t happening. So take a look below and pick out some new (or old) favorites, and enjoy this weekend like it’s a holiday too.
Mile Wide Beer Company is celebrating Pride Month with the release of Dorothy’s Riot, a Belgian-Style Witbier brewed with raspberries. The Lousiville, KY brewery has partnered with Queer Kentucky to release its first-ever Pride beer. Queer Kentucky is a platform for Queer people from all around our great bluegrass state to share their lives with others.
Who doesn’t love a good puzzle? Not the boxed variety, with multiple pieces that we are all too familiar with recently. Instead, one involving riddles, obscure references and ever-evolving hints. Typically, new breweries want to be discovered, pairing opening weekends with long lines, endless tags on Instagram and sold out items. For Hidden Hand Brewing, however, the allure is driven by the secrecy, coded messages and small batch offerings. It’s more than a new beer offering. It’s a masterly crafted limited release highlighting the top hop variants in the industry. The beer is as hard to get your hands on as it is to decipher the riddles—unless you’re paying attention.

Chicago’s Hopewell Brewing Co. is probably best known for their modern take on beer. Their goal as a brewery is to make beer that is bright and clean. Hopewell was a nearly decade-long creation, with the owners always knowing that their dreams would come to fruition as they proceeded through the years. With their intensive approach, they’ve created some amazing and unique showstoppers. Their seasonal spring/summer sour ale, Clover Club, proclaims the entirety of Hopewell’s mission in every sip.
Year over year, non-alcoholic (NA) beers continue to carve out a bigger chunk of the craft beer market, in no small part due to the NA beer produced by powerhouse Athletic Brewing Company. The NA brewer continues to brew up a bevy of different NA beers from Golden Ales to Hazy IPAs but it’s their mission to welcome a larger part of the adult population into the craft beer community through NA offerings that continue to resonate with consumers. This focus on welcoming continues to manifest in different ways for the brewer, including through their latest collaboration with prominent LGBTQI+ activist and advocate Alex Johnson, a competitive climber with two World Cup Gold medals and five US National titles, on the limited release of Rainbow Wall Blood-Orange IPA. It will debut in June during Pride Month.
