New and Now Availables is a weekly(?) feature here at 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: Calvert Brewing Company
Beer Name: Mortal DIPA (Double IPA-9%)
Beer Description: An extra hazy behemoth of an IPA (9% ABV and 88 IBUs) that uses the freshest citra and mandarin bavarian hops possible. Above all, Mortal is juicy and citrusy, with a barage of sweet orange, balanced by intense hop flavor and ample bitterness. Mortal IPA puts a spotlight on the talents and passions of our brewing team, led by Matt Ducey, while reminding our community that we are local and craft. For our local fans, we have the means of using the freshest ingredients possible to make an excellent beer that can be consumed just hours after it is finished. We still experiment every day, and the Mortal IPA is the result of more than two years of design, experimentation and endless tweaking to perfection.
