Hops & Grain’s A Pale Mosaic now in year-round cans

Joining the rainbow of canned beers in Hops & Grain’s year-round lineup is another hoppy, easy-drinking delight. A Pale Mosaic, which released on draft earlier this year, is now available in six-packs at local bars and liquor stores.

A Pale Mosaic, an American IPA, is Hops & Grain's newest year-round canned beer, and it's just hit the market.

The beer is an American-style IPA whose name pays homage to a fairly new hop variety called Mosaic, according to the brewery. But that’s not all you’ll find in it. A Pale Mosaic also has a base of German Pale Ale and Vienna malts and a bittering charge of Nugget hops, and it’s dry-hopped with primarily Mosaic hops, as well as more Nugget and some Cascade “to deliver a beer that is clean and complex with notes of pine resin, grapefruit pith and blueberries.”

With this addition to the year-round lineup, Hops & Grain has moved Pale Dog and Alt-eration into seasonal status, as founder Josh Hare explained a few months ago in this blog post. Alt-eration will be on shelves each October through January, whereas Pale Dog will return every February through May. The East Austin brewery is also planning to have a not-yet-announced summer seasonal join them, according to a press release.

In the meantime, get your hands on one of those blue mosaic-tiled six-packs of A Pale Mosaic cans. The Hops & Grain crew will be at a couple of launch events around town this week where you can talk to them and try their beer. Tomorrow, meet the brewers from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Sunrise Mini Mart, 1809 W. Anderson Ln.; on Friday, drink with them at Craft Pride, 61 Rainey St., starting at 6 p.m.
