SweetWater LowRYEder IPA back from retirement for the winter

SweetWater LowRYEder is out of retirement. At least for now.

This beer got its start as a hoppy rye offering known as Crank Tank, a charitable beer brewed to benefit Camp Twin Lakes. That release was so well received, the brewery upgraded it to LowRYEder IPA.

Not long after, LowRYEder won a gold medal at The Great American Beer Festival. In true SweetWater fashion, the beer was retired shortly after. That’s what happens when a recipe wins a medal SweetWater. Retired. Don’t try to understand it.

The fans voted this summer, and the clear winner is the spicy rye beer you came to know and love a few years ago. Available only in the Winter Variety Pack in 12 ounce bottles and on tap at the brewery.

Style: IPA (/ Rye)
Availability: 12oz bottles, Draft. Seasonal release, Winter 2016. 

6.2% ABV, 45 IBUs
