POG: New Realm Tropic Dream launches year-round

New Realm Tropic Dream, a fruited wheat ale, joins the brewery’s lineup year-round in March 2022. 

Tropic Dream is a “POG” beer – aka Passionfruit Orange Guava. If POG brings up flashbacks of the milk cap game from the 90’s there’s a reason. The POG drink dates back to creator and product consultant Mary Soon, who worked for Haleakala Dairy in Hawaii in 1971. The caps to the milk bottles spawned the 1990’s milk cap game. Interestingly, the original POG drink was never sold with cardboard caps, but the dairy gave the caps with the POG logo as promotional items in the 70’s. A teacher in the 1990’s was using the milk caps as a counting aid in the classroom, brought up this milk cap game she used to play, and well- it all really caught on. The 90’s kid fights over collectible POGs began. 

As for this “POG,” New Realm’s Mitch Steele and brewing team brewed up something tropical, using fresh blood orange, passionfruit and guava juices. The final recipe was decided after eight different fruited wheat batches. POG goes together for a reason, apparently. 

Tropic Dream has a prominent tropical fruit character, with a slight tartness and smooth finish. It’s light, refreshing, and a beer that we are really proud of.” – Mitch Steele

New Year-Round Release: Saint Arnold Orange Show

Saint Arnold Orange Show

Saint Arnold Orange Show has been added to the Houston, Texas-based brewery’s year-round lineup this month.

The base beer is a blonde ale, brewed with fresh blood oranges. 2,200 pounds of puree to be exact. That’s around a half a pound of puree per gallon.

A strong citrus aroma comes from the purée added during fermentation and the Centennial and Citra hops. The combination of sweet and slightly tart flavors make it a balanced, light bodied beer.

Saint Arnold Orange Show is named for a folk art monument in Houston’s East End Neighborhood. The 3,000 square foot structure was designed by the late Jefferson Davis McKissack, a Houston postal worker.

Orange Show is available in 12-ounce cans and draft in Texas and Louisana, year-round starting in March 2018.

Style: Blonde Ale (w/ Blood Oranges.)
Hops: Centennial, Citra

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
