"Y'all. We've been around for FIVE YEARS! If we've learned anything in 5 years, it's how to throw a good party. So, join us on Saturday, September 21, for an all-day throw down Oktoberfest-themed good time.
The Oktoberfest party will be the premiere event on the final day of our Five Year Anniversary: A Five-Day Celebration!. Be sure to check that event out for all of the events throughout the week leading up to the Oktoberfest celebration.
We'll get a full schedule posted in the coming weeks. But, in the meantime, here are the things you need to know:
THREE NEW BEERS IN CANS!
We're releasing our next batch of 16oz cans. Draft and 4-packs of 16oz cans of the following will be available:
1. Southern Hemisphere Opacity:
The newest iteration in our hazy/juicy IPA series features all hops grown in Australia and New Zealand. Galaxy, Motueka, and Wakatu hops lend a pronounced citrus and white pepper character that is a refreshing twist on the New England-style IPA.
2. Bring Back Transparency:
This crisp, dry, and refreshing IPA has big tropical fruit notes from Mosaic and Ekuanot hops. It's moderately bitter and balanced by just enough malt complexity, while the hops remain the stars of the show.
3. Good Prime:
For our 5-year anniversary, we wanted to do a big, bold, Belgian-inspired one-off batch. This Belgian dark strong ale clocks in at 9% ABV and has all of the dark fruit, caramel, and toffee flavors you'd expect in a Belgian Quad. It is sweet and malty, but delicately balanced and the complex layers will develop as you let the beer warm.
