Firestone Walker Cashmere XPA joins mixed pack for summer

Firestone Walker Cashmere XPA

Firestone Walker Cashmere XPA is exclusively a part of the brewery’s ‘Beer Before Glory” Mixed Pack this summer.

Cashmere XPA is a pale ale, brewed with the Cashmere hops. Like so many popular hop varieties, Cashmere has a very unique tropical citrus flavor.

“I think it’s cool that this is a cultivar from the public breeding program, meaning that any hop farmer can grow it,” Brynildson said. “But more importantly, it’s a true new age hop with these beautiful soft fruit qualities that are really distinct.” – Matt Brynildson, Brewmaster

Cashmere XPA is joined by newly formulated Easy Jack, Union Jack, and Firestone Lager in this seasonal 12-pack. Available throughout summer 2019.

Style: IPA
Hops: Cashmere

Availability: 12oz Cans. Mixed Pack Exclusive
Debut: June 2019.

Firestone Walker grew custom hops for Luponic Distortion 13

Firestone Luponic Distortion 13

Instead of simply selecting certain hops for the next Luponic Distortion releases, Firestone Walker went another way. Custom grown hops.

Three years ago, Firestone Walker’s brewmaster Matt Brynildson secured a deal with Hop Breeding Company’s breeders Jason Perrault and Michael Ferguson. Three acres of a special new hop cultivar was planted. According to Brynildson, it was all worth the wait.

 “The tropical aspect of this hop is really crazy. It adds a distinctive dimension to the aroma profile of the beer.”

This new hop is supported by five additional hops, creating a beer that boasts “unique profile of piña colada, key lime, and nectarine.”

Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion 13 starts shipping to all of the brewery’s markets this week.

Style: IPA
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Rotating release.
Debut: Mid-June 2019

Creature Comforts Tropicalia is coming to 16-oz cans soon

Creature Comforts Tropicalia 16oz Cans

Creature Comforts Tropicalia, the Athens, Georgia based brewery’s top-selling beer, and one of the Southeast’s most popular India pale ales, is coming to 16-ounce cans this summer.

Creature Comfort’s massive success has a lot to do with Tropicalia. This balanced, juicy IPA has a very loyal following, so much so, that for a while stores would limit sales of this year-round beer to just one 6-pack per person.

For the loyal Tropicalia acolytes, expect a new format coming your way this summer – Tropicalia 16-ounce cans. The pint-size cans are a hot packaging format in the beer industry, and for Creature Comforts. 16-ounce “Trop” cans are a no-brainer. The brewery has been releasing 16-ounce cans for a while now, but only for their taproom/small batch releases.

David Stein, Creature Comforts co-founder and head brewer tells Beer Street Journal that fans can expect this larger can format sometime in June 2019. He also noted that the 12-ounce cans will remain in the brewery’s lineup as well.

Style: IPA

Availability: 12oz Cans, 16oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round
Debut (16oz): June 2019 (Estimated)
