Jolly Pumpkin Sobrehuman Palenaole

Jolly-Pumpkin Sobrehuman Palenaole Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales (Dexter, MI) and  Maui Brewing Co (Lahaina, Maui, HI) recently collaborated to create  Sobrehumano Palena ‘ole or “superhuman”. It is actually Maui’s first collaboration in a can, brewed with passionfruit and cherries.  The above is Jolly Pumpkin’s edition of the collab. What’s the beer? Each brewery will add its own unique spin — as Maui will ferment normally (arriving in cans), and Jolly Pumpkin will make it  a barrel aged sour (in bottles).

Yes, Michigan and Hawaii are connected.It should be obvious to you now as you hold this beer, and read this label. John and I designed this beer with two noble fruits from two noble states. Michigan & Hawaii.Cherries & liliko’i. Starting to see the connection. I feel it. So does John. 4391 miles msy separate our breweries, but not our thirst for the exquisit Hipa! -Ron Working with Ron is something I’ve wanted to do since I had my first Jolly Pumpkin beer. Years later, it’s a reality. Being involved on this project was an honor and a privilege. Mahalo to my MBC crew and to you, fans of craft beer! -John

Where? Maui will produce 4,000 cases & 80 barrels, distributed in all 11 states in which the brewery currently ships.   Ed. Note: Jolly Pumpkin most likely will not know yield until barrel blending time.
