New Release Beer Reviews
Stevens Point Brewery
St. Benedict's Winter Ale
Nearly opaque dark dark brown color. Mild, sweaty aromas of chocolate and vanilla swirled ice cream, toasted nuts, coffee ice cream, and Twinkies with a glycerous, bright, finely carbonated, off-dry medium body and a tingling, complex, medium-length chocolate cream pie, puffed rice cereal, and dried fruit finish. A dark and rich winter lager.

Reuben’s Brews
Triumvirate IPA
Brilliant gold color. Bold, sweet, fruity herbal hoppy aromas and flavors of sticky pineapples, unripe mango, cannabis/sage/lavender, and multigrain bread dough with a silky, lively, bubbly, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, intriguing, crisp bitter greens, pine/spruce, and toasted sliced bread finish. A tropical and dank IPA.
