21st Amendment Watermelon Funk debuts nationally

21st Amendment Watermelon Funk

Summer is almost here, and with it – 21st Amendment Watermelon Funk. A brand new release by the San Leandro, California based brewery.

The brewery’s Hell or High Watermelon Wheat has been a warm weather favorite by many for years. In small batches, the brewery has been “funking with greatness” by kettle souring what would be Hell or High with Lactobacillus Planterum.

…bright, tart, citrus notes, this beer finishes with a spicy farmhouse character from its French Saison yeast strain.

21st Amendment Watermelon Funk is brewed with 100% pure watermelon puree. Look for it nationally in 12 ounce cans and draft this month for a limited time.

Style: American Sour/Wild Ale (w/ Watermelon)
Hops: Magnum
Malts: 2 Row, White Wheat

Southbound Transilience, now in cans

Southbound Transilience cans

Southbound Transilience has found a new home in cans this week. The brewery’s popular berliner weisse just made your pool lineup.

While the India Pale Ale is still the most brewed style across America’s breweries, the berliner weisse style is on fire. The wheat beer is kettle soured with Lactobacillus bacteria, and finishes tart and refreshing. Savannah, Georgia’s Southbound Brewing does theirs with a twist. They add fresh mango and pomegranate.

We brewed up this German-style sour wheat to help us transition in the Atlanta market. Lactobacillus and saccharomyces create this light, acidic, and tart summer heat quencher.

We’ve been fan of this beer since trying it last summer. The fruit flavors are beautiful compliment to the finish of this beer. Our criticism was the bottle size for a beer you want to chug. Well… they’ve fixed that now haven’t they? See you at the pool.

Southbound Transilience starts shipping this week in 12 ounce cans for the first time.

Style: Berliner Weisse (w/ Mango, Pomegranate.)
Hops: Magnum

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal.
Latest Return: June, 2017

Rum & key lime-y Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top returns

Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top can

Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top drops in about two weeks, slamming two styles together in one canned package.

It seems like key limes have found almost overnight success in beer. Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top has them in the base gose, plus 15 year old Nicaraguan rum barrels. Brewery founder Brad Schell told Beer Street Journal last year of his excitement to find such great rum barrels.

“They smell like being drunk on a beach or being a pirate.”- Brad Schell, brewery founder

The base beer is a gose brewed with sea salt and key limes, then aged in the rum barrels for over three months.

The result? A bold beer. There are a few key lime flavored beers running around out there these days. While some just taste a little citrusy, Bright Ass Tank Top doesn’t let you forget what it is. A rum filled gose that is full of key lime juice. You can’t miss a bright as shit tank top walking by you. You won’t forget this beer either.

Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top is available once again in 16 ounce cans and draft.

Style: Gose (w/ Sea Salt, Key Limes. Barrel Aged. Rum.)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.

Distribution: NC, SC, GA
Latest Return: June, 2017

Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA is on deck in cans

Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA

One of California’s most well known breweries may truly be embracing hazy India pale ales. At the end of the day, IPA is really what put them on the map. Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA lingers in the near future.

An unfiltered IPA already intermittently exists in the brewery’s lineup, part of the Enjoy By IPA series. In the near future, Stone is releasing Nor’East Nod Double IPA, a hat tip to hazy, juicy “New England-style IPA”,

Now another unfiltered, juice-forward IPA looms in Stone’s lineup – Vengeful Spirit IPA.  This hazy IPA will be bringing the juice, in the form of pineapple and Mandarin oranges.

We’ve often been inspired to brew beers on a theme. In 2007 it was black IPAs. 2008 saw Belgian influenced IPAs, and more than once it’s been Triple IPAs. It’s been fun to dive deep, and you’ve ridden those waves right along with us. But like you, we’ve also crave new breaks to surf. Right now, it’s tropically-inspired IPA’s as represented both by this flavored ale, Stone Tangerine Express IPA and others we’ve got waiting in the wings…. With Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA we employ a bit of tropical mythology to pay homage to our ever present gargoyle. Since 1996 he’s had our back, and yours, by representing an aggressive intolerance for commoditized beer. He constantly inspires us to forge ahead with resolve-even with the omnipresent forces of forceful evil. Vengeful spirits can be awesome when they are on your side.

Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA will be available in 12 ounce cans and draft. The brewery has not yet announced this beer, and details are subject to change.

Style: IPA (w/ Pineapples, Oranges)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: TBA
