It’s been a hell of a Tuesday, and we’ve got lots of updates for ya!

Top 25:

The Brewer’s Association just released the 2012 numbers and it looks like we’ve been bumped on up from #27 to #24 making the Top 25 craft breweries in the U.S. Now, that’s certainly somethin’ to raise a pint (or 10) to. Check out the rest of the stats and the full lineup here: http://www.brewersassociation.org/pages/media/press-releases/show?title=brewers-association-releases-top-50-breweries-in-2011

We’ve also got some mouth-waterin’ libations in the pipeline for this summer (tell us that doesn’t sound dirty) and we’re excited to share some of the details with y’all:

LowRYEder Art Debut:

Brand spankin’ new to our annual lineup of lip-smackin’ brews is our LowRYEder Rye IPA. This one will be making that booty hop. It’ll make its debut this summer in the Tacklebox, hit draft taps in June and be on shelves in six-packs at your local bodega in July. Take a look at the never-before-seen artwork from Totem.

Waterkeeper Hefeweizen:

It’s also about that time again to “Give of your Liver to Save the River!”  We’re excited to bring back our Waterkeeper Hefeweizen which will slip into the Catch and Release lineup just in time for summer. The brews will be featured across the Southeast in conjunction with our Save the Waterways campaigns with local Waterkeepers®. You can get your hands on ‘em this May on draft and in 22-oz bottles.
