Summer beer release from GoodLife Brewing are on the way with 12oz, six-pack cans of Beach Life Pineapple Pale Ale and Bavarian Lager.
“These two beers are great summer drinkers, one is a classic refreshing German Style Helles Lager that is light and crisp and the other is a super fun tropical pineapple beer that has a great pineapple nose and taste but still has the hoppy elements of a pale ale,” says Ty Barnett GoodLife’s Co-Owner, in a statement. “It’s going to be hard for me to choose which one when it gets over 90 degrees.”
Here are descriptions on each of the two beers as provided by the brewery.
A true German Helles style lager recipe combined with European and US hop varietals make this beer crisp and refreshing. Clean American bittering hops along with a few late additions of German Czech Saaz hops provide pleasant hop aroma and put a NW spin on this traditional style. It is a light and drinkable beer with a clear golden straw color. Now available year-round in draft and 12 oz six packs. 5% ABV 22 IBU
Beach Life Pineapple Pale Ale:
Is a tropical twist on a classic Pale Ale. Brewed with Amarillo and Mandarina Bavaria hops, these fruit-forward aroma hops, and a moderate dose of Pineapple, lend to this very drinkable fruit- forward Pineapple Pale Ale! The first sip will have you living your beach life and take you to the islands with your toes in the sand. Only available for a limited time in draft and 12 oz six packs. 6.2% ABV 35 IBU
Both new six packs will be available at specialty craft beer stores throughout Oregon beginning next week.
