Spring Brings Flowers... and Beer!

Signs of Spring lurking around the edges of the hedges... took a couple photos yesterday of some early-arrivers in the garden:

Daffodils on the march thru the flower beds.

A magnolia tree, sometimes called a tulip magnolia.

And another sign of Spring: Beer releases!

The good folks at New Belgium Brewing just announced their latest seasonal release, Dig Pale Ale.

From their news release:

"For New Belgium Brewing, the unearthing of Dig Pale Ale signifies that warmer weather is just around the corner. New Belgium’s spring seasonal, Dig, offers a hearty list of hops, measured crispness and unpretentious appeal.
Dig begins with Sorachi Ace hops, which provides a zingy lemon aroma, followed by Nelson Sauvin hops with bursts of passion fruit, mango and peach. Also present in this pale ale are Cascade and Centennial hops. Dig is available in most New Belgium markets through April and ABV is 5.6 percent."

Looking forward to sampling some while getting the mulch ready for spreading... hard work requires lots of beer, you know.
