Welcome to Beer Dabbler’s Freshies, our weekly rundown on the newest beers hitting the store shelves and taproom coolers in Minnesota from your favorite local and national breweries. 


PA may be the top-selling and most trendy style of beer, but we have a rainbow of flavors in new beer this week. There are ample Belgian and German-influenced styles like wit and Kölsch, but also unique beers aged in gin barrels and two different craft malt liquors to imbibe on. And for those looking for something a little more India-style pale ale-like, lots and lots of juicy hazies, soft cold IPAs, and dank West Coasters too.

Each week, the Beer Dabbler team highlights the most tantalizing new beers available across the state that we’re most excited to try. Check out these Top Flights at Dabbler Depot—click on each image for stock levels.

Fat Orange Cat Dazed And Confused Teenage Kittens Hazy IPA 4pk 16oz – A slightly amped-up version of Baby Kittens, clocking in at 7.10% and aggressively hopped and dank. 7.1% ABV

Voodoo Brewing Good Vibes West Coast IPA 4pk 16oz – Good Vibes is hopped five times in the kettle & double dry hopped to produce bodacious dank fruit notes. Voodoo Brewing also used gnarly amounts of Galaxy, Amarillo, Mosaic & Apollo to make it the beloved West Coast-style IPA it is. 7.3% ABV

Wild State Cider Hazy Pink Pineapple 4pk 12oz – This tropical vacation of a cider is left unfiltered for a hazy look and juicy mouthfeel. Made with Costa Rican pineapples and fresh dragon fruit. 6% ABV 

Phase Three Overlaid DIPA 4pk 16oz  Featuring citra and sultana hops with pineapple, pine, and bright citrus notes. 7.8% ABV

Off Color Ghost Lemons Wit 4pk 8.5oz – First blush of summer peaches, preserved lemon, and marmalade leads to a verdant, round mouthfeel of kiwi, hay, and barnyard funk. A twinge of tartness dissipates to a bone-dry, slightly saline finish reminiscent of brackish water and the bucolic memories of lemons past. 5.1% ABV
