Hi-Wire Tropical Fruit Golden Ale

Hi-Wire Tropical Fruit Golden Ale heads to full distribution this month.

This 11.3% alcohol by volume strong ale is brewed with Citra hops and a hefty amount of Guava, papaya, and mango during secondary fermentation.

This high octane beer is deceptively drinkable, allowing big fruit flavors to mask the heat of this dank & sticky beer that does not taste anywhere near 11.3%

Hi-Wire Tropical Fruit Golden Ale is available in 12-ounce bottles, and draft across the brewery’s entire distribution footprint.

Style: American Strong Ale (Guava. Papaya. Mango.
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: April 2018

11.3% ABV

Mango, guava and passionfruit highlight April’s SweetWater Tropical Lover

SweetWater Tropical Lover

SweetWater Tropical Lover rolls off the can in Atlanta as a new seasonal in April.

Nick Burgoyne, brewer at SweetWater has been developing this recipe for some time now. He created a low alcohol by volume Berliner Weisse; adding mango, guava, and passionfruit to the beer. The result was something quite tropical and very refreshing.

“When we put test batches on tap at the Woodlands and in our main taproom, people kept commenting on how drinkable and refreshing it was; they loved the tropical flavors. I imagine Tropical Lover will be a hit with folks hanging out on the water all summer, kicking back with a few daytime drinks.” – Nick B.

SweetWater Tropical Lover will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft starting April 7th. Look for a launch party at the brewery on April 19th.

Style: Berliner Weisse (w/ Mango. Passionfruit. Guava.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: April 2018

4.5% ABV

POG inspired Terrapin Luau Krunkles returns year-round

Terrapin Luau Krunkles

Terrapin Luau Krunkles, a tropically inspired India pale ale, will be offered year-round in 2018.

“Krunkles” is a fictitious character (perhaps real, depending on who you ask at the brewery) that travels the world looking for new India pale ales. The series has seen releases like Krunkles Down Under (all Aussie & New Zealand hops), Samurai Krunkles, and Dr. Krunkles.

Terrapin Luau Krunkles is inspired by a Hawaiian drink called POG. The beverage is brewed with passionfruit, orange, and guava. (Yes that same drink gave rise to the POG game of the 90’s.) In 2017 when the temperature started to rise, so did Luau Krunkles. The demand for POG is so high, the beer will be offered year-round this year.

Krunkles is back with another world renowned IPA inspired by this time spent on the Hawaiian Islands. Jam packed with tropical flavors of passionfruit, orange and guava, this “Hawaiian IPA” is brewed to accompany you to your next luau.

Terrapin Luau Krunkles is a 12 ounce can and draft release year-round, alongside Hopsecutioner (with new artwork), Hi-5, RecreationAle, Good to Gose, and Sound Czech Pilsner.

Style: IPA (w/ Passionfruit, Oranges, Guava)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: Fall, 2016.
Year Round: July, 2017

6.5% ABV

Ed Note: Luau Krunkles has already been available year-round in the brewery’s IPA Survival Kit

The Veil Brewing Human Adult debuts Tuesday, brewed with Trillium

The Veil Brewing Human Adult.

The Veil Brewing Human Adult debuts on September 26th.

This beer is the latest in a series of collaborations with Boston, Massachusetts based Trillium Brewing Company. A few months ago, the group brewed Adult Human at Trillium. That release was an imperial IPA brewed 100% with Citra hops and blood orange puree.

The Veil Brewing Human Adult has been created in the same vein – that is with the same malt and yeast profile, but with a few changes. Vic Secret hops were tagged in for Citra, and Guava puree instead of blood orange juice. As The Veil puts it – “The same, but different”.

The Veil Brewing Human Adult will be available at the brewery in Richmond, Virginia on Tuesday, September 26th.

Style: Imperial IPA (w/ Guava Puree)
Hops: Vic Secret
Availability: 16oz Cans

Debut: 9/26/17
