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.

RELATED: The Veil Brewing brews with fried chicken

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.

The Veil Brewing whiteferrari is available in 16-ounce cans when the brewery opens on July 25th.

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

Hops & Citrus: Westbrook Citrus Redacted

Westbrook Citrus Redacted

Westbrook Citrus Redacted is on the horizon by the Mt Pleasant, South Carolina based brewery.

This new imperial IPA is described as being big on citrus hops, and citrus fruits. There are ninjas on the label, which makes us think of a Pipeworks beer – Citra Ninja. (Perhaps that’s the joke?) Thus…. “redacted”.

This beer combines three of our favorite things: juicy fresh-squeezed hops, zesty and bright citrus fruits, and a name that doesn’t make any sense unless you know the story behind it. Enjoy!

Westbrook Citrus Redacted will be available in 16-ounce bottles. The brewery has not officially announced this release.

Style: Imperial IPA (w/ Citrus)
Availability: 16oz Cans
Debut: TBA
