Punch Buggy, You Looked, White Tail Can Release @ True Respite Brewing Company
Jul 20 @ 12:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Punch Buggy features a yeast strain new to True Respite known for its active role in biotransformation of juice-forward hop varietals.

Whirlpooled w/ Centennial & Mosaic and dry hopped with a heaping portion of Mosaic & Galaxy, this juicy, hazy companion is a bold addition to the True Respite limited release lineup.

One thing is for sure: this beast will never hesitate to drill you square in the shoulder every single time an old VW Beetle rolls by… no matter how old you get.


You Looked is BACK! This gently fruited double hazy IPA captured the hearts and minds of the lucky few who snagged it when it was first released in December.

Azacca, Mosaic & Idaho 7 were pitched throughout the whirlpool and dry hop, plus we added a small dose of pineapple puree during fermentation, creating a juicy, hazy legend whose introduction set a bold precedent for the True Respite lineup to come.

We have no shortage of silly games to play where the end result is us tossing an unceremonious jab to your shoulder. We promise this won’t be the last.


White Tail is a classic German-style wheat ale featuring notes of banana and clove.


Punch Buggy and You Looked are $19.99 / 16 oz 4-pack

White Tail is $13.99 / 16 oz 4-pack

Cheater Hops #8: Nelson-Azacca-Simcoe Can Release @ Sapwood Cellars
Jul 21 @ 11:00 am – 8:00 pm

We opted for a higher amount in cans, and given a higher overall yield compared to a DIPA we’re hoping to have enough to last the day… we’ll see.
Cheater Hops #8: This time we started with a little rye in addition to the usual barley and oats. Dry-hopping duties fell to Nelson Sauvin, Azacca, and Simcoe! The combination is gooseberry, melon, and pine. Fermentation from our house strain resulted in 7.2% ABV and that typical kiss of vanilla.
