Welcome to a new weekly(?) feature here at DCBeer.com. In an effort to keep readers informed about the newest beers (local and otherwise) appearing in the market and on beer menus, we'll be sharing the beer submissions we get from breweries and brewpubs. These may be brand new beers or they may be beers returning to rotations (e.g., seasonals, limited releases), or they may be one-offs. Notably, this list isn't comprehensive, but really how could it be? It relies on submissions from breweries. Are you a brewery with a beer you'd like to see here? Use our form. Cheers and thanks for reading!

Brewery Name: Heavy Seas Beer
Beer Name: The Alpha Effect (Hazy IPA-7)
Beer Description: With a lightning strike of exotic hops, the Alpha Effect is a hazy and dank IPA thundering with juicy hop aroma and flavor. With a hefty 7%, the Alpha Effect has enough malt to balance the ridiculous amount of hops we used to create this category 5 monster. Hazy, but never muddy, this is an expertly brewed IPA. Take cover, the Alpha Effect is in effect!
Release Date: 3/1/2017
Format: Draft, 12oz Bottles, Growler Fills at Brewery/Brewpub
Availability: Broad On- and Off-Premise Release

Brewery Name: Denizens Brewing Co.
Beer Name: Sex Panther (India Black Lager-6.2)
Beer Description: This lager is black in color with little to no levels of roast characteristics, similar to a European schwarzbier; however, we slightly boosted the ABV and hopped the lager at the rate of an American IPA. The clean fermentation characteristic allows for the hops and malts to be showcased over a blank canvas. Notes of guava, pine, and citrus dominate the flavor profile, with some malt character to balance the hops.
