We did it fam! We made it through this hotter than hell week and it appears (hope I’m not jinxing it) the monsoon is here and will make it a much more palatable summer here in the desert. Fresh new craft beers to crack open also make the summers more enjoyable and we’re here to try it all. Here’s this weekend’s roundup of new releases from local breweries to sip on under the sun or while watching a storm. Drink local and drink responsibly. 

Now That’s What I Call Hops from Tombstone Brewing Co. (Tombstone and Phoenix) 

As a child of the 90s, I can appreciate the can design and totally awesome name of this new series of hazy IPAs from Tombstone. Three varieties (IPA, Double IPA and Triple IPA) are available as appropriately named “Volumes” and are available at the brewery locations or in finer craft beer stores around the Valley. 

Lil Guav from Goldwater Brewing (Scottsdale and Mesa) 

Pink guava earns its street cred in this crushable hazy IPA, returning to the Goldwater lineup on Friday, June 25. Available in cans to-go or on draft.  

Experimental Attack Monkey at Simple Machine Brewing (Phoenix) 

I’ve always thought of brewers as crafty scientists because of the amount of math and chemistry knowledge along with the precision it takes to create a good beer. The Simple Machine scientists have emerged from the lab with an experimental beer that celebrates scientific discovery, called For Science! Volume 1 Experimental Attack Monkey. Using a new malt, they came up with six cases of this creamy hazy IPA. Limited availability in cans and on draft.  

Older Dog from Wren House Brewing (Phoenix) 

No need to spend five to six hours in the car to get a classic West Coaststyle IPA made famous in the San Diego area. Wren House saves you the trip with Older Dog, a danky and hoppy beer available starting Thursday, June 24. Pick up a four-pack for $16. 

Out of Towners 

(for those lucky enough to escape the summer heat)

Four new releases from Dark Sky Brewing (Flagstaff) 

There’s a big new lineup of fresh releases for folks getting out of town and headed up north to the high country. Dark Sky’s busy week includes something for just about everyone, starting with the Get Shacked kettle sour. Add in Empty Temples Maibock, Still Smokin’ Polish smoked beer and Weight of Sound pilsner – and you have a tasty flight of some very distinct styles.
