Woodcock to release improved take on IPA
Woodcock Brothers Brewery (638 Lake St., Wilson) will launch its new year-round IPA (India pale ale) in cans at noon Sept. 16. The beer is a tweaked version of its XPA v.10, which was released in March, and features a citrusy, fruity and herbal nose with a pleasant bitterness and light mouthfeel.
Cans will be available at the brewery only initially, with distribution to follow at area beer stores. Four-packs of the 16-ounce cans will be $10.99 (no limits). The brewery will feature live music from noon to 3 p.m. for the Sept. 16 release party. Call 333-4000.
Thin Man gets hot and heavy
The beer was brewed with Lemondrop, Citra, and Cascade hops, and named after a public display of affection witnessed by the brewery during the debut of its beers at the 2016 Ballpark Brew Bash. Call 923-4100.
