It’s the first New Releases of 2020. New year, new beer. Let’s go!

3 Stars is bringing the dankness, literally, with terpenes.

Speaking of 3 Stars, they’re also dropping a collaboration IPA with Silver Spring’s Astro Lab. Look for it at both breweries.


Speaking of Astro Lab, the freshest Fresh As is hitting distribution. Why not buy it at Fenwick, for 20% off?

Taproom only for now, but we’ve got one more brewery experimenting with hard seltzer. Please welcome Atlas’s lemon raspberry.

Port City’s rotating lager series has produced a lot of gems. In my humble opinion, their best is Schwartzbier, and given a Great American Beer Festival gold medal for their German-style Pilsner, that’s no small feat. Well, Schwartzbier is back!

Because it’s cold as I write this, here’s a massive beast from Elder Pine. It’s in limited distribution and has smoked malt, so I’m in.

Speaking of winter beers Coffee Wallops Island from Rocket Frog is in distribution, too.

But back to hops: be on the lookout for both Troeg’s Nugget Nectar and Bell’s Hopslam soon, too!

Keeping it hoppy, and intermittently new to market, is upstate New York’s Sloop Brewing. I’ve had some of their haze and it’s goooood.

Aslin and Stillwater have a pilsner collab out there, and speaking of Top Three Lagers, here’s a brewery-only release:

Lastly, a special welcome to 2020 #whalezbro alert: Fremont barrel-aged goodness at the Craft Beer Cellar on Saturday.
