“Canning has been a real learning experience, but it is very humbling to see the excitement in the taproom and in the marketplace for the Double Shift brand. It makes it worth the effort.” said Jon Conway, head brewer and graphic designer at Double Shift, 412 E. 18th St. in Kansas City.

Tessellation (6.7% ABV), a single-hopped mosaic IPA, and Ordiata (6.5% ABV), the brewery’s horchata-inspired milk stout, now may be found in liquor stores like Gomer’s, Mike’s Wine and Spirits, and Brookside Wine and Spirits.

More Double Shift brews are slated for release in cans this year.

Beer Releases

Alma Mader Brewing — 2635 Southwest Blvd., Kansas City, Missouri — had a flurry of beer releases recently, many of which are now sold out. Klinker (5% ABV), a German-style pilsner, is the exception. This brew was cold-conditioned for a very long time, and carries floral, delicate notes with a punch of Hallertau hops.

Casual Animal Brewing Co. — 1725 McGee St., Kansas City, Missouri — dropped two beers recently. Memory Fade Hazy IPA (6% ABV), a hazy IPA with tropical notes, and Blueberry Vanilla Stout (5.2% ABV), a chocolatey smooth stout, are both available in Casual Animal’s taproom.

Torn Label Brewing Co. — 1708 Campbell St., Kansas City, Missouri — recently released a barleywine called Borrowing Trouble, which clocks in at a whopping 11% ABV. The brewery boasts that this is “among the biggest beers ever brewed at Torn Label.” This malt-forward, toffee-, amaretto- and rum raisin-flavored behemoth is available in draft.

It’s the end of the world, and 3Halves Brewing Co. — 110 E. Kansas St., Liberty, Missouri — knows it! The brewery just dropped Farmageddon, a delicious farmhouse ale/saison clocking in at 7.5% ABV.

Crane Brewing Co. 6515 Railroad St., Raytown, Missouri — just dropped Janautis, a 5.5% ABV pale ale fermented with Lithuanian farmhouse yeast. This beer was made with elderflower, juniper, and lemongrass, just like the classic gin cocktail we’ve all grown to love and cherish.

Not Lost Brewing — 229 S. Main St., Ottawa, Kansas — released Lost in the Sunshine (5.4% ABV, 13 IBU), an American wheat ale packed with tangerine and wheat flavor.

We’re dreaming in purple at Servaes Brewing Co. 10921 Johnson Drive, Shawnee, Kansas. Dreams in Color – Purple Pineapple (4.5% ABV), is a Berliner weisse made with copious amounts of pineapple, and also lemongrass, vanilla, blue hibiscus tea and blueberries.

Prime Numbers (6.7% ABV) is the newest creation at Pathlight Brewing —11200 W. 75th St., Shawnee, Kansas. After doing the math, we’ve concluded that this hazy IPA is bursting with fruity, citrusy and hoppy flavors. Don’t think too hard, though. Grab a pint ASAP!

Limitless Brewing — 9765 Widmer Road, Lenexa, Kansas — dropped a strawberry lemon cream ale called Fearless (5.6% ABV), and it’s available in cans on their website. While you’re at it, snag a koozie!
