Semi-sweet cider made with orange, pineapple, and coconut
Blake's Hard Cider Co., Armada, MI | ABV: 6.9

All Day Haze

We often have our head in the clouds – and once again we came back down with an exciting idea: let’s take the low ABV of All Day IPA and bring it to a hazy! That’s just what we did with All Day Haze Hazy IPA. A substantial amount of oats and wheat lend a whimsical fogginess, while Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo hops create an explosion of aroma. A sessionable, cloudy treat that can be enjoyed in any weather, hazy or otherwise.
Founders Brewing Co., Grand Rapids, MI | ABV: 4.9

Late kettle and several dry hop additions increase the hop flavor and aroma while keeping the bitterness low.
Good People Brewing Company, Birmingham, AL | ABV: 6.9

Guinness Draught

Swirling clouds tumble as the storm begins to calm. Settle. Breathe in the moment, then break through the smooth, light head to the bittersweet reward.
