There’s something to be said for hyped beer releases that draw crowds of ravenous (and curious) craft beer enthusiasts. If you follow the industry and stock beer by the fridge or simply happen to drive past your local brewery, you’ve probably seen this phenomenon at work. And it’s no better encapsulated on a summer day than with the release of the Three Taverns Phenom IPA, a fitting Summer IPA sure to enliven your tastebuds, impress your guests and keep your palette coming back for more.
Although it’s just beer, the best craft beer really isn’t a trivial matter — witness excited craft beer fans clamoring for a new release. The folks at Three Taverns know this, and have brewed up a beer befitting of your next BBQ. Made with plenty of citrus fruit flavor plus a generous helping of Simcoe, Cascade and of course, Citra hops, we can’t recommend this beer enough — the 5.5 percent ABV is sippable but a cut above a session IPA. All of this taken at once means you need this beer in your cooler ASAP.
