The Lone Pint Brewery – Magnolia, Texas
It’s always exciting to try out beers from a craft brewery for the first time. Hundreds of breweries produce IPAs and Wheat Beers, and to really stand out in the market, a beer has to express itself with special aromas and flavors. Three beers from a small brewery in Magnolia, Texas captured our attention recently, by standing out from the crowd.
Lily & Seamus Wheat Beer is a year-round offering in the style of an American Wheat Beer, a tough style to really stand out in. Lone Pint however produces a special version each year, brewed with kumquats. The kumquats add notes of orange and a hint of extra bitterness to the beer, making it more complex and refreshing.
667 Neighbor of the Beast is an American IPA with an intoxicating sweet hoppy flavor that pulls you in for sip after sip. Bitterness is very smooth without any harsh resinous hop flavors.
Yellow Rose IPA is a single-hop IPA brewed with Mosaic hops, producing wonderful notes of grapefruit, pineapple, and blueberry. Dry hopping increases the aroma and flavors in the beer. A very unique, flavorful, and interesting beer.
Lone Pint beers are available in the Central and South Texas area on draft. Crafted Pours had these beers at a great bar in Austin which only serves Texas craft beer, called Craft Pride.
