Enough with the novelties for a while. Here's a West Coast classic, brewed since 1984, when people had scarcely heard of India Pale Ale. It pours lager gold with a medium head and slightly coarse carbonation, and it's definitely an IPA, dry-hopped with Cascade for that brisk piney nose we've grown to love. It does not, however, belong to the later West Coast school of hop extremism. It has a nice round feel on the palate, with a long, long bittersweet finish fading out cleanly on the bitter side.

After years of priding themselves on their ales, craft brewers have started showing what they can do with lager. This is a very attractive Pilsner style, with a richer flavor than the usual commercial beer but not tiring to the palate and very easy to drink. It pours light gold with a medium head. The nose is malty with a bready, grassy note, the palate moderately malty, its sweetness balanced with a little crisp hop bitterness (the hops are actually toward the low end for a Pilsner)

For beer drinkers who get sleepy after a brew or two, a new beer with a kick is on the way. Starbucks Coffee Co. and Redhook Ale Brewery have joined forces to brew Double Black Stout, a dark roasted malt beer brewed by Redhook with the added flavor of Starbucks coffee. The brew will have 30 milligrams of caffeine per 22-ounce bottle, a quarter the strength of a cup of regular drip coffee. Beer ordinarily has no caffeine.

Add Samuel Adams to the growing list of beers available in cans. The Boston Beer Co. said it will start selling its popular Samuel Adams Boston Lager in cans for the first time this summer, the Associated Press reports. The move will allow beer fans to take the popular lager places where glass bottles may not be allowed, such as pools, parks, beaches and sporting events. Once considered to impair the taste of fine beers, cans are now used by more than 180 craft breweries, according to the website ontaponline.com.

Anthony Grasst, the executive in charge of finding new locations for the expanding, Seattle-based Redhook Ale Brewery, has some advice for states trying to lure businesses: Call them back. New Hampshire officials, including Gov. Stephen Merrill, did just that and the courting paid off. Come spring, the 13-year-old Redhook microbrewing firm, which has sales growing at an annual rate of 40% a year, will break ground on a new 24-acre brewery at a former Air Force base in Portsmouth.
