Whether you’re winding down a week with the kids at home or just starting your week of spring break, the adults in the room need a beer or two. Here are our picks of new releases to find at some of our favorite local craft breweries this weekend. Cheers and drink responsibly!

Damas De Oro Pale Ale at Goldwater Brewing

This is Goldwater’s second annual release to celebrate International Women’s Day (earlier in the week). The name translates to Gold Ladies, fittingly titled for the hue of the beer and the women who helped create it. Pairs well with a spicy taco and celebrating female achievement.

Puffy and Cobra Blood from Arizona Wilderness Brewing

Double your pleasure as Arizona Wilderness brings back fan favorite collaboration Cobra Blood, a blood orange hazy double IPA. The beer is available at the Gilbert and Phoenix locations along with Cobra Arcade Bar in Downtown Phoenix. Pairs well with a video game marathon.

The other new release is something special and different for the beermakers at Wilderness: Puffy is the first milkshake smoothie sour the brewery has ever made. Expect a lot of orange and vanilla creaminess in this one. Pairs well with a beanie and a good camera to take hiking pictures.

Five New Releases at Tombstone Brewing Co.

Perhaps the most famous mustachioed baby in all of Arizona craft beer, Little Baby Wyatt session IPA makes its return in cans and on draft. Pairs well with throwing open saloon doors.

The other four releases are variants of Tombstone’s annual barrel-aged stout, formerly named Russian Imperial Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels. Citing current world conflict, the brewery pivoted to change the name and the label to Ukrainian Anti-Imperialist Stout. The various stouts were aged in Elijah Craig 10-year bourbon barrels, Evan Williams 1783 barrels, Pikesville Rye barrels and Heaven Hill barrels. These are set to be released on Saturday, March 12 with part of the proceeds donated to UNICEF.
