Traditionally the January midpoint is something of a slow burner – consisting of waning resolutions, Blue Monday and an unwanted mini Bounty lying in a tub of empty wrappers. But this week, we have the antidote! We are kick-starting January with the launch of a brand new beer; our first BrewDog Seasonal for 2016. Stack up the quarters and join the Arcade Nation.

Our new Black IPA is the quintessential two-player co-op; a pistol black hop bomb pirouetting at the toes of the End of Level Guardian. Player 1; an American IPA, leading with a blend of West Coast hops, whilst Player 2 tags in with four different malts and a roasty, chocolate and coffee-laced baseline. Together, they dual-wield as Arcade Nation – a hero gone over to the dark side.

Running the knife-edge between an India Pale Ale and a Stout, this particular style is one we truly love. Black IPA’s are a great showcase for the skill of our brew team, balancing so many complex and twisting flavours in the same moment. The citrus, mango and pine from the hops – three of our all-time favourites – play off against the roasty dryness from the malt bill at each and every turn.

The end result may be the same, but as with the most classic of videogames how you get to that point is entirely up to you. Go for the all-out, full on incendiary blast of hops, or be more circumspect and hide in the recesses of the dark. Either way, Arcade Nation is the perfect beer with which to shrug off the January lethargy and embrace the BrewDog 2016 Seasonals.

Speaking of which, stand by soon for a detailed run-down on the blog of our differing ranges for this year, and how your craft beer calendar is going to play out in 2016. In the meantime, Arcade Nation is live in the online shop and will be in our UK bars from 6pm this Friday, 15th January.

Elvis Juice V2.0

But that isn't all this week! Continuing the gaming theme, we also have a chance for you to indulge in a second playthrough of one of our most talked-about beers of 2015. Elvis Juice has returned for a little more conversation as version 2.0 - and for this batch we have dialled in our massively juicy citrus IPA, as you can discover for yourselves in our online shop!

With masses of refreshing fruit flavour, the tartness has been lifted and the beer invigorated by a huge dose of grapefruit peel, playing off the Simcoe, Citra and Amarillo hops. This is the penultimate incarnation of Elvis Juice - the final Prototype version before we add the beer to our regular range (as requested by so many of you). Like Arcade Nation, Elvis Juice 2.0 will launch in our UK bars at 6pm this coming Friday, the 15th.

Let us know in the comments what you think of them!

I'm a little shocked that there isn't a Brewdog Bar in NYC. You seem to be opening these things left and right but never in the capital of the world.
