Get political, even with your beer this fall

Just in time for the political conventions, Vermont-based craft beer brewer Magic Hat Brewing Company is set to release its quadrennial, democratically-inspired variety of libations, the Participation Variety Pak.

The Vermont brewer has again teamed up with voter registration organization HeadCount in a yearlong and energizing effort to encourage the message, get out and vote.

To prime the voting palates of the public, Magic Hat began 2012 by asking registered craft beer lovers to vote their favorite Magic Hat beer of yesteryear into the Participation Variety Pak.

And vote they did. Beloved brew Hocus Pocus beat out seven other beers to win a seat in this fall’s variety.

The nation’s next stop is the presidential election, and the Participation Variety is just the conversation starter America needs as they discuss their political views this fall.

Of course, every election of such significance needs a big shindig, and that’s why the 2012 political year will culminate with an epic bash – the Participation Party – in New York City on Nov. 5.

The Participation Party features a ballot full of heady bands and heady jams and will leave reveling voters with no doubt in their minds that their participation in the event was the right choice.

A diverse lineup to please all palates

Participation offers the voting and drinking public four finely-fermented beers. Be you of the Wheat Party, the Hop Party or the Not Quite Pale Party, the Participation Pak has your craft beer interests represented according the the brewer.

#9® seeks to lead the nation into a Not Quite Pale period of flavor enlightenment.

Hocus Pocus, elected into Participation by the people, brings the will to chill to a thirsty nation in the form of a refreshing wheat beer.

hI.P.A. is the fall performer of the I.P.A. On Tour series and an ideal candidate to embitter your palate with hops, hops and more hops.

Hex® Ourtoberfest® is the fall seasonal that casts not a ballot, but a delicious spell, with five different malts, magnificent tones of toffee and a slightly smoky finish.

So when the talk of politics gets you down this fall, and for us the primaries are next week, sit back and have a good beer to relax.

The Participation Variety Pak will be in office from Aug. 1 until Oct. 15, just in time to quench thirsts brought on by intense political debate.

The gift of beer 

I have said before that if you have a beer fan in your life getting them a membership to a monthly beer club is a great gift.

Well one of the biggest companies offering those packages, The Original Craft Beer Club, just added two new beers from the northeast to their rotation.

Once you signed up you get a fresh shipment of new beers to try every month. With each shipment comes 12 beers: three beers x four styles.

The two new northeastern beers are both from Saranac.

Saranac White IPA

Saranac White IPA is a tasty innovative twist on a traditional IPA.

They’ve taken a delicious American IPA bursting with Citra hops and given it a whole new direction by adding the refreshing fruitiness of orange peel and coriander and the softening characters of wheat malt and oats.

You’ll notice the complex hop flavor you’ve come to expect in an IPA, balanced with the extraordinary bright flavor of a wheat beer.

Saranac Blueberry Blonde Ale

Saranac Blueberry Blonde Ale is a traditional blonde ale with a kick of juicy blueberry. You’ll notice a light golden haze from wheat malt and oats and a low-hop bitterness, which really shows off the fruit.

“With a medium-light body and fresh blueberry flavor, we’re sure we’ve captured refreshment in a bottle,” according to Saranac reps.
