Spell Czech Can Release @ Black Flag Brewing Company
May 24 @ 4:00 pm – 11:45 pm

Time to ease into summer with a few crispy tallboys of dry hopped Czech pilsner!

Possibly the most crushable and refreshing hoppy beer we have ever made. Brewed with a simple recipe of European Pilsner, Chit Malt, and flaked oats. Hopped and dry hopped with old school Czech Saaz and new school Huell Melon hops for a beautiful floral and melon character!

Celebrew Can Release @ Black Flag Brewing Company

We teamed up with Gilly’s Craft Beer & Fine Wine to brew a collaboration can release for their annual Celebrew party!

We lined up a hazy IPA brewed with Idaho 7, Mosaic, and Citra Hops! We have loved this batch of Idaho 7 and are really looking forward to this one. Make sure to swing by the taproom or hit Gilly’s Celebrew event to snag yours – this was a single 20bbl batch so quantities are super limited!

Big Cush Can Release @ Cushwa Brewing Company

Saturday, June 1st we will have cans of Big Cush ➡️our DIPA available.

This beer is a bigger, bolder version of Cush with a bouquet of pineapple and papaya in the aroma, followed by stone fruit and pine in the flavor profile.
Time? 11:30 AM–line starts when the first person gets there.
Where? Back loading dock door.
What can I buy? (1) case limit.
Cost? $18 per 4-pack.
Will Big Cush be on tap? Yes, however crowlers won’t be available until cans are sold out.

Snip Snap Can Release @ Sapwood Cellars
Jun 1 @ 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm

We dry hopped Batch # 3 of Snip Snap with 66 lbs of Citra for melon and citrus aromatics… then again with 66 lbs of Australian Galaxy for passionfruit and tropical aromatics. Our goal was to make it rich, but with enough bitterness to balance the juicy flavors.

There has been some debate over Batch #1 vs Batch #2, our goal was to get the best of both into #3. A bit bigger and more balanced like Batch #2, but with a creamier body and cleaner fruitiness like Batch #1! We’re working closely with Elder Pine to ensure carbonation is a bit higher on this batch than Cloud Palace too.

The total yield should be ~900 4-packs of 16 oz cans. We’re expecting it to sell out within a few hours.

$20 / 4-pack
