Beer Coasters Spring Is In The Ale Issue

Beer Coasters

Spring is in the air - or should we say, Spring is in the Ale!  It's feeling like it's officially Springtime and we are drinking special Spring release craft beers.  The time of year when the ice melts, the hops are in bloom and the lighter side of beer begins to flow.

We start off with the return of Beer Coaster Chris!  He's back and sassy as ever!  His Spring release beer is the Colette from Great Divide Brewing Co.  Beer Coaster Mike tends to his flower garden with a glass of Berkshire's Maibock Lager.  Out Westward, Beer Coaster Toby bows to Ninkasi with their Spring Reign.

Since Chris has been gone for so long, we decided to pile on the Hop Topics this week, which include some very sad stories in the Craft Beer world.  A lot of great Backwash this week - as well as some very disturbing Backwash - and some silly banter to make Chris' return that much more tolerable.  Thanks for stopping by, Cheers!
