Baltic Porter released
Flying Bison Brewing Company (840 Seneca St.) will hold its annual “Roll Out the Barrel” party from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. July 20. The party coincides with the release of the winning Erie County Fair homebrew competition beer, which this year is a Baltic Porter recipe by Sean Wall. Due to the beer’s high alcohol by volume, Flying Bison also brewed a batch of the original Erie County Fair beer recipe from 2015, an American Pale Ale. Both beers will be available at the fair, as well as at other select prior to the fair. Call 873-1557.

Resurgence Brewing Company (1250 Niagara St.) will release a fresh batch of its CitMo IPA (India pale ale) at noon July 22. Four packs of the 16-ounce cans will be available for $10, and there is no limit. The brewery also has released two new beers in its taproom: Gnome Buddy Saison (4.9 percent ABV), a light dry refreshing summer quencher with hints of citrus and bubblegum, and Strawberry IPA (6.7 percent ABV), a slightly sweet IPA made with real strawberry extract. Call 381-9868.
