Branding Update: Monday Night Blood Orange Blind Pirate

Monday NIght Blind Pirate can

Monday Night Blood Orange Blind Pirate is getting a little branding update. The brewery

This rendition of Blind Pirate got its start in the  Clip-On Series – a side project for Monday Night. The brewery takes a year round offering and throws it a curve ball. (Note: The series now includes none year-round beers too.)

The first release was Serrano Eye Patch Ale, a peppery spin on the year round English-style IPA. Not long after, Blind Pirate, their double IPA received a little blood orange treatment. As October winds down, you can get Blood Orange Blind Pirate in 12-ounce cans.

Pirates love citrus fruits almost as much as they love blood. If the phrase “you are what you eat” is true, then pirates are blood oranges. If the phrase “you are what you drink” is true, you’re about to be an incredibly delicious, juicy hop bomb of an IPA. We add bits of real blood orange to every beer, so you know it’s good.

Monday Night Blood Orange Blind Pirate is a draft, and 12-ounce can release.

Style: Imperial IPA (w/ Blood Orange)
Hops: Columbus, Cascade, Magnum
Malts: 2 Row, Wheat, Caramel

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round.
Release (Cans): October, 2016

“Most elegant IPA” The Veil Brewing whiteferrari returns Tuesday

The Veil Brewing whiteferrari

“Our most elegant DIPA.” That’s how The Veil Brewing whiteferrari is described. The can design is easily one of the sexiest in the Richmond, Virginia based brewery’s lineup.

whiteferrari features the freshest crop of Citra and Galaxy hops The Veil possesses. The brewers went heavier on the Galaxy additions.

We used the freshest crop available of each hop to give this DIPA the most expressive hop character possible.

Sierra Nevada Tropical Torpedo debuts in cans

Sierra Nevada Tropical Torpedo bottle

Sierra Nevada Tropical Torpedo hit shelves as we started 2017. The trop-spin on their tried and true IPA has been very successful, prompting the brewery to add on cans to the lineup.

According to Sierra Nevada founder Ken Grossman, “Innovation is part of our DNA.” There is a lot of truth in that statement. Sierra Nevada is one of a handful of American breweries responsible for putting hoppy beer on the map, thanks to Torpedo IPA. The style has dominated sales in the craft beer segment for years now.

RELATED: Sierra Nevada Sidecar Orange Pale Ale

Recognizing the shift in tastes among American drinkers, the brewery has released a new take on their classic – Sierra Nevada Tropical Torpedo.

Implementing the brewery’s proprietary Hop Torpedo (for which the beer was named), the brewery has made some juicy changes to the dry-hopped aspects of this IPA. The result is a juicy, tropical twist on a classic. Unlike Sidecar Orange Pale Ale that uses fruit, Tropical Torpedo relies entirely on the dry hop for the fruity flavor.

What you get. All the tropical hoppy flavor that is so en vogue right now. That hop torpedo spits out some magic. Torpedo is already an American icon, and one thing’s for sure, this drop of trop isn’t far behind. Expect passion fruit and mango aromas and flavor, with a great bitter finish. Buy more than a 6 pack. You’ll want it.

“The rush of hop flavor and lush aromas of mango, papaya, and passionfruit awaken your senses with our most adventurous IPA yet.” – Brian Grossman, Second Generation Sierra Nevada brewer

Sierra Nevada Tropical Torpedo is available in 12-ounce bottles, cans, and draft.

Style: IPA
Hops: Amarillo, Mosaic, Citra, El Dorado, Comet
Malts: 2 Row Pale, Munich, Honey

Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: January 2017
Debut (Cans): Late-July 2017

This summer Orpheus is also adding Over and Over, a new pineapple sour to their year-round lineup.

A debut date hasn’t been set, but you can expect Orpheus Ascending IPA to be available in 12-ounce cans and draft.

Brewing with fried chicken is now a very real thing

The Veil Brewing Fried Fried Chicken Chicken

The Veil Brewing Fried Fried Chicken Chicken debuts on July 25th. This new India pale ale is brewed with fried chicken. Yes… fried chicken.

Weeks ago, the brewing team from Richmond, Virginia’s The Veil Brewing collaborated with Evil Twin Brewing’s Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø. After overeating fried chicken at a nearby restaurant, the team decided to throw some fried chicken into the mash of this imperial IPA. NO, they weren’t the leftovers.

In the end, fried chicken only made it into one of the two brewing mashes for this release, making up less than .4% of the total weight. According to The Veil, the beer doesn’t taste anything like fried chicken. Dropping some chicken into the beer just seemed like a fun thing to do. (They already brew with cookies and candy.) Check out Jeppe throwing the chicken into the mash below.

Besides chicken, The Veil Brewing Fried Fried Chicken Chicken features Citra, Simcoe, and Enigma hops. Subtitled a “Double Dry Hopped Old Country Double IPA.”  You remember the “old country” right? Back when chickens were chickens, and hops were hops. A much simpler time.

Those wanting to drink some fried chicken will have to be at The Veil Brewing early on July 25th. 16-ounce cans will be available when the brewery opens at 4 pm.

Style: Imperial IPA (w/ Fried Chicken)
Hops: Enigma, Citra, Simcoe
Availability: 16oz Cans
Debut: 7/25/17
