This time of year, we’re all dreaming of the tropics. And lucky for us, our brewing partners have offered us a load of pineapple- and citrus-infused brews to slake our thirst for a sunny vacation while we enjoy the powdery slopes in Vermont!

MASS BAY BREWING CO. (Boston, MA & Windsor, VT) – UFO PINEAPPLE – Introducing UFO’s first new year-round product in eight years, UFO Pineapple is a golden, juicy and tropical hefeweizen that helps you get your luau on… no matter the season.

STONY CREEK (Branford, CT) – RIPE & CRANKY IPA SERIES – Being ripe means being ready…and thoroughly juicy! This is the freshest, ripest beer you can imagine.

STONE (Escondido, CA & Richmond, VA) TANGERINE EXPRESS – Imagine the tropical haze of a lazy afternoon- into-evening. Your official duties for the day have been to maybe take a hike to a secluded waterfall, perhaps grill something, definitely chill with plenty of sand between your toes…and crack a phenomenal beer to complete the experience. Check, check, check again and…pfffft…check. Welcome to our vacation transportation express! This ain’t no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. We use bountiful whole tangerine purée, which brings pithy, crisp bitterness to the citrus flavor. In addition to the complexities of the tangerine — the likes of which you can only get by using the whole fruit — we judiciously employ just a hint of whole pineapple for a backnote (you’d likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didn’t tell you it was there). We’re not looking for a sweet concoction to appease the “I want my beer to taste like fruit juice” crowd. This is Stone. We like our IPAs to taste like IPAs. Big, bold and not for kids. 6.7% ABV, 75 IBUs. Available now

…and speaking of tropical…

SIERRA NEVADA (Chico, CA & Mills River, NC) – TROPICAL TORPEDO IPA – Although there’s no fruit added, I think you’ll agree that this IPA conjures up the flavors of the tropics through a unique hopping regimen of Amarillo, Mosaic, Citra, El Dorado and Comet hops.. A tropical take on the American IPA. Inspired by the island life, we created an IPA completely disconnected from the mainland. We used our one-of-a-kind Hop Torpedo to deliver an intense rush of hop flavor and the lush aromas of mango, papaya, and passionfruit with every sip. Enjoy our tropical twist on the American IPA. 6.7% ABV, 55 IBUs. Available now
