So, for those who've seen the most recent "New Beer (this month)" thread, Real Ale is currently revamping it's whole lineup with new packaging and in some cases, new recipes. In the past week I've started seeing the new cans and bottles on the shelf, and my first thoughts are all good ones, not least because it means fresh product. I've bought two sixers of 4^2 this week already, 'cause it's right at a week old! For less than $8 a sixer at HEB, that's a steal, and I've been in dry-hopped heaven for a week now. Their Rye ale, Full Moon, has seen a recipe change, with Citra being added and the final gravity being dropped to IPA levels (according to their website). I'll be looking for that one next. Between that, and 4^2 , and Han's Pils, I'm a happy man as far as well-priced local hoppy beers go. Any thoughts on the new packaging? Real Ale has often been a "underrated" local brewery (or by underrated, I mean "lacks excessive national acclaim")-- so I wonder, does this signal the explosion of our hill-country brewery? Or will their packing of some of the MV series do that anyway?
