Hopheads, we’ve got some great news for you! From now until the end of October, there will be a $5 rebate on cases of select IPAs and DIPAs purchased at your local Delaware, Bucks, Montgomery and Berks County Beer Distributors. Simply fill out and mail in this rebate form with the UPC from the case and a dated receipt, and you’ll receive $5 back on up to 2 cases per household. If you’re having trouble deciding which of these fantastically hoppy beers to get, take a look at the descriptions below to get a better feel for them.

Evolution Lot No 3 IPA – Fruity citrus and sharp pine notes sit heavily on a quiet but firm malt backbone in this vigorously hopped brew. 6.8% ABV

Uinta Hop Nosh IPA – Grapefruit is the flavor at the forefront of this IPA, with earthy hops and fruit inflections over a smooth, malty base. 7.3% ABV

Ithaca Flower Power IPA – The flavor starts with rich malts, which flow smoothly into herbal hops in this five-times-hopped ale. 7.5% ABV

Prism Felony IPA – At 100 IBUs with ten different hop varieties, this DIPA isn’t messing around. Hoppy fruit and pine notes dominate, balanced by maltiness. 10% ABV

Victory DirtWolf Double IPA –  Robustly hopped, this ale holds floral nectar, herbal and pine flavors amongst the pleasant bitterness, with slight citrus traits intermixed. 8.7% ABV

Troegs Perpetual IPA – Peppery, piney and grassy. This bold IPA (that’s Imperial Pale Ale) serves up a healthy serving of hops with every sip. 7.5% ABV

Prism Red Zone

Friday, September 5, 2014 | Featured Beer, Prism

redzone

This brew, based on a Irish Red Ale, sets itself apart by the addition of autumnal spices, like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice, as well as local Pennsylvania maple syrup, making for a beer that’s got all the right fall flavors. It’s deep, copper color and strong maple and roasted malt flavors add up to a brew that’s perfect for warming yourself in the coming cooler months. 6.6% ABV

Prism Summer of ’69

Friday, June 27, 2014 | Prism

This highly experimental brew out of Prism doesn’t quite have a single style. It uses pilsner malts, their own house ale yeast and an experimental hop, then on top of all that, they throw in fresh-squeezed pineapple. This all combines for a highly fruity and refreshing summer beverage with a certain kick to it that you are sure not to find anywhere else. 5% ABV

Superbowl Food and Beer Pairings

So the Eagles didn’t make it to the Superbowl this year, but don’t go canceling your party yet. We’ve got some ideas for some Denver and Seattle inspired meals, as well as the perfect beers to go with them. So root for you favorite team–even if it’s not really your favorite–and try one of these delicious combos.

Seattle Seahawks

Washington is known for its huge, delicious sockeye salmon, and there are so many recipes to choose from. Although salmon is always tasty, here’s three serving suggestions.

Smoked Salmon – Victory Golden Monkey’s sweet and spicy flavor pairs well with the brown sugar and light but rich texture of sweet salmon.

Glazed Salmon – Susquehanna’s HopFive IPA has enough hops to counter balance the sticky-sweetness of the glaze, and is light enough for seafood.

Smoked Salmon Dip – Troeg’s Dreamweaver pairs well with all sorts of seafood, and it’s light enough to serve with snacks/appetizers.

Denver Broncos

Where Washington is famous for salmon, Colorado’s claim to fame is its buffalo, which can be cooked in a number of different, delicious ways. These three options really bring out the sweet, rich flavor of the meat.

Buffalo Burgers – The smokiness of these burgers matches that of Prism Brewing’s Insana Stout, brewed with chocolate and bacon. Mmm!

Buffalo Brisket – East Coast Beer Co. Winter Rental’s sweet dark fruit notes will play up the sweetness of the meat in this brisket.

Buffalo Chili – Evolution Lot #3 IPA goes great with this spicy chili, as the bitterness will complement the hot peppers, and the light body

And of course, if you aren’t particular to either team but are still hosting a party, you can always play up the joke that each team is from a state where marijuana use is now legal, and serve everyone their own Uinta Dubhe (pronounced doo-bee).

Everyone have a safe and pleasant game time!

Bitto Honey is Prism Brewing’s flagship beer.

Now, the beer is being distributed throughout the region in bottles for the first time.

Bitto Honey is a well-balanced IPA offering a touch of sweetness from clove honey to offset the bitterness from the Amarillo and Cascade hops. It’s not overwhelming, making it a nice selection for those beginning to appreciate hoppy styles.
