From high above Mongoose Junction, looking off to St. Thomas across Pillsbury Sound, the boys at St. John Brewers have added more flavor to their offerings. The latest spice comes online, via a new island Webcam. This was the picture Wednesday morning.
But wait, there's more.

Meanwhile while the Brewers rock on, they've whipped up a new seasonal selection: The Island Hoppin’ IPA (India Pale Ale). A fall/winter seasonal brew, it is already available in Massachusetts and Rhode Island in a limited pre-release. (Think of it as a 'beta beer.' beta release, test … get it?) Bottles will follow in the VI sometime in December, and a full scale release in the Brewers' distribution states (RI, NJ, MA, FL, NE, CA) is expected in mid-winter.
