Here is some information on a couple of emails I received over the past two days from Alpine Brewing and Karl Strauss. Alpine is releasing its barrel-aged imperial porter, Token, on Friday, September 2, restrictions apply. Alpine also served notice that the current batch of Duet will be released in a few weeks, and it will be the last for some time, possibly until the end of the year, as Alpine has ran out of this year's Simcoe hops. Stock up and hoard accordingly.
Karl Strauss is brewing a quadrupel, Two Tortugas, for the second installment in its play on the Twelve Days of Christmas, (not to be confused with The Bruery's same-themed annual Holiday release), in mid-November, 2011. Karl Strauss is also releasing its Big Barrel Double IPA on September 1.
