New and Now Availables is a semi-regular 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 perusing menus from breweries and brewpubs and posting some of their latest offerings. 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? Are you a brewery with a beer you’d like to see here? Use the comments below. Cheers and thanks for reading!

Adroit Theory…kolsch? Wonders never cease.

SHAWBECKER SCHWARZBIER | Black Lager | 4.6% abv | 16oz PintNutty, Cocoa, Roast. This dark German lager balances roasted yet smooth malf flavor and offers a moderate bitterness. Brewed with Munich and an assortment of roasted malts and then modestly hopped with Hallertauer Mittelfruh. Finishes clean and dry with a complimentary but subtle roast, hints of chocolate and a nuanced nuttiness.
