It's hot. But fear not! We've got everything you need to enjoy the summer heat before it disappears... because we all know we'll miss it when the snowstorms roll in. Let's not think about that.
First up, the exciting release of the perfect summer beer: ION. This light, refreshing, low--alcohol beer is a cerveza with lime. The guys in the brewery said they were sitting around, brainstorming, and came up with the idea. Andrew says they thought it would be a great summery flavour (especially in this heat) that would also complement the existing line of beers. And with it being the same low price of Radio Tube, it'll be easy to down a few. If it sells as well as we believe it will, Ion could be an annual summertime beer. Chef Brian suggests pairing the lime cerveza with the seared pickerel dinner or curry.
Cerveza with lime
Our most refreshing beer yet, Ion lime cerveza is designed with the patio in mind. Light, crisp and refreshing, it also packs a delightful lime punch on the nose and palette combined with a gentle malt backbone for a super drinkable summer lager.

Next up, we've got a special, beer that's only being sold in bottles: cherry Gamma Ray Imperial Stout. You probably remember our regular Gamma Ray, which was a coffee stout that just recently sold out (don't worry, we'll be bringing it back come winter season). You may also know of our Cherry Volt, which was a huge hit this past spring. Well, there was some leftover cherry purée following the Volt, so the brewery guys decided to get creative and use it to make a cherry version of Gamma Ray. Due to the limited amount of cherry puree, there was only enough to fill about 500 bottles. So if you want to try it, you better get it before it's gone! Chef Brian recommends pairing this one with the brisket sandwich and/or the caprese salad.
A slight twist on our Gamma Ray Imperial Coffee Stout, this version brings all the intensity of the original with a smooth cherry finish, combining with the dark malt body to bring out strong yet pleasant notes of Black Forest cake, cherry cordial and dark cocoa.
