These are no longer normal times…So why drink something normal especially in 2021?
Wookey Jack Is Back (Venice, CA) – One of Firestone Walker’s most legendary beers is back. This time as a small batch limited release produced by its Propagator pilot brewhouse in Venice, California, which won a Gold medal in the GABF’s American-Style Black Ale category in 2020 for returning a classic to prime time last year.
A unique twist on the Cascadian Dark Ale style, Firestone Walker’s Wookey Jack is award-winning 8.3% ABV Black Rye IPA that’s perfect for long winter nights and worthy of revisiting.
Starting on Tuesday, January 12, Wookey Jack will be available as an uber-small batch run of 16-ounce cans in a four-pack format. Availability of this legend will be limited to all Firestone Walker locations as well as online at FirestoneBeer.com.
Ave A New (San Diego, CA) – Coronado Brewing is kicking off 2021 with a unique twist on the company’s original Orange Ave Wit Ale. Brewed with 2-row malt, wheat, flaked oats for extra body and fresh locally sourced oranges, Coronado Orange Avenue is a 4.2% Shandy with a juicy mouthfeel and just a hint of sweetness to its finish.
“We wanted to brew a Shandy that featured the best aspects of our original coastal classic, Orange Ave Wit, while still creating a completely unique beer that was tremendously juicy and slightly tangy,” says Mark Theisen, Head Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. “We also use London III yeast to accentuate the fruity esters and add a slight haze typical of wheat beers.”
A Cream Ale That Rose To The Top (Indianapolis, IN) – Sun King Brewing, one of Indiana’s largest craft breweries, was awarded more medals at the 2020 GABF than any other brewery in the competition, including its unique Cream Ale. Awarded a Bronze in the competition’s Golden or Blonde Ale category, Sun King Sunlight Cream Ale is a 5.3% ABV refresher that celebrates American brewing traditions by balancing smooth malt complexity with a crisp, clean finish.
