Pipeworks Danger Fruit is back with more prickly pear

Pipeworks Danger Fruit

Pipeworks Danger Fruit is back in action as July winds down. This round, the brewery added more prickly pear fruit.

The base beer is a pale ale, jam-packed with prickly pear fruit, aka Opuntia, aka the “paddle cactus”.

We’ve added even more prickly pear juice to this super summer-smooched sipper. The juice brings an almost briny, watermelon-y flavor to the very light and refreshing pale ale. The color on this is also amazing.

Pipeworks Danger Fruit is available again starting Friday, July 26th in 16-ounce cans and draft. Distribution next week.

Style: Pale Ale (w/ Prickly Pear.)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal Release.
Latest Return: 7/26/19

6% ABV

Pipeworks Brewing adds Connecticut distribution

Pipeworks Brewing Logo

Chicago based Pipeworks Brewing Co. will be distributing to the state of Connecticut. The brewery has signed a distribution deal with Sarene Craft Beer Distribution.

A exact date when beer will be flowing was not specified by Pipeworks. They did, however, provide a little insight as to why they are skipping over a few local states and pouring in Connecticut.

Well, we’re a self-distributing brewery. That means we load our beer into vans in Chicago and drive it ourselves to retailers, restaurants, and bars to ensure that it arrives in your glass or fridge in the freshest condition possible. There’s a cap on how much beer we can self-distribute in our home state and we’ve hit that ceiling.

Pipeworks Brewing was started by Gerrit Lewis and Beejay Oslon in 2012. Besides Chicago, the brewery can be found in Colorado through Tivoli Distribution.

Pipeworks Renames Batata

Pipeworks Brewing Company’s (Chicago, IL) are the buzz of social media these days. Of course they are, when you have beers like Raspberry Truffle Abduction, Coffee Break Abduction, and Smore Money, Smore Problems.

Pipeworks Batata Obscura looks like a rename of Nisperos Batata. This edition is higher in alcohol, and the brewery mentions it is worthy of cellaring.

It is inspired by the Puerto Rican dessert by the same name. Batata is brewed with sweet potatoes, clove, cinnamon, vanilla and toasted coconut, and is a perfect tribute to the brewery’s Puerto Rican neighbors.

Style: Imperial Porter (w/ Sweet Potatoes, Vanilla, Clove, Cinnamon, Coconut)
Availability: 22oz Bombers
