New York City's Best Spring Beers

by Kerry Jepsen on Mar 14, 2017 in Roundups

Spring is a beautiful time of year, especially for the beer lover in all of us. Spring can be a very particular season for drinking — we're all looking for something to take of the edge of the chill defrost of winter, yet something refreshing and looking forward to warmer days. Ranging in all styles for every kind of beer drinker, make sure to look out for these local brews coming to your bodega shelves soon!

Coney Island Brewing
NY Honey Stout
There’s no clowning around when it comes to the quality coming out of Coney Island Brewing. This year for Spring 2017, they’re unrolling their new season ale - a NY Honey Stout. Robust and full bodied, it’s a perfect way to warm up to a new season, the notes of sweet honey and molasses carry the citrus aroma and bite from the hops making it equally refreshing as it is big bodied. (ABV 8%)

Greenpoint Beer and Ale Co.
Constant Reassurance Juicy Oat Pale Ale
Playful and light, not too dry and packed with delicious notes of fresh tropical fruit this is the perfect way to say good by to winter with each gulp. This easy sipping session can carry its way to to the hot dog days of latter spring and early summer with is fruity forward and light body appeal. (ABV 4.8%)

Bronx Brewery
Spring Pale Ale with Tea
Lovely chamomile and Indonesian black teas come together in harmony over New Zealand hops and 2 row barley malts in Bronx Brewery’s new spring release. Floral yet earthy and properly balanced with citrus-y hops and robust barley, this new ale is perfect for tea time or any other time. (ABV 5.7%)
 
Singlecut Beersmiths
Softly Spoken Magic Spells IIPA
Earthy, wet wood after spring rain, pine, citrus, malty, a touch sweet - these are the words that come to mind when drinking Singlecut’s new magical ale. Capable of sending you to a fantastic place where it is perpetually spring, Softly Spoken Magic Spells is the IIPA you should be drinking this Spring. (ABV 8.6%)
 
Sixpoint Brewery
Hi Res
With the name stemming from an intense microscopic look at the hop cone, this brew is as intense as the experience of total hop-vision. Boasting an utterly brash IBU of 115, we can only hope you like IPA’s. This perception overload of a brew is a back again from Brooklyn’s favorite go-to local brewery and is a fun way to set your sights on a new season. (ABV 10.5%)
 
Brooklyn Brewing
Bel Air Sour
Edgy as it is easy going, this sour ale hits all the right notes for that refreshing spring ale with just enough sourness to melt our frozen hearts. For those sour ale fanatics out there definitely keep your eyes open for this addition to Brooklyn Brewing’s seasonal staples. (ABV 5.8%)
