2024 is ON and American craft brewers are addressing February with an intriguing roster of beers you’re gonna want to have around.
Guinness Celebrates the “Year of the Dragon” (Baltimore, MD) – Guinness is celebrating the Chinese Lunar New Year with a very special limited release that was crafted in collaboration with Diageo’s PAN Asian Network.
Infused with dragon fruit powder and orange puree, Guinness Luck of The Dragon is a 5% ABV Dry Stout that celebrates togetherness, unity, and community ahead of Lunar New Year festivities.
With special can art made by Asian-American artist Cher (@cyl.cher), this exclusive brew will be available on tap and in to-go cans at the Guinness Open Gate Breweries in Baltimore and Chicago throughout February.
Happy Chinese New Year (White Palins , NY) – February 10 is the Chinese New Year and Tsingtao, the #1 Chinese imported beer in the US, has set the tone for a much more sober “Year of the Dragon” with the debut of a tasty non-alcoholic option. Crafted using the finest ingredients and only 63 calories per bottle, Tsingtao 0.0 is citrusy buzz-free refresher with subtle malt notes at the backend.
“The demand for Tsingtao Premium Lager has experienced tremendous growth over the past two years and that trend is projected to continue beyond the New Year,” says Steve Hauser, CEO and president of Paulaner USA, the US importer of Tsingtao. “With the launch of Tsingtao 0.0, we are tapping into consumers who are reaching for non-alcoholic drinks in their bid to lower their caloric intake. Tsingtao 0.0 provides a great tasting experience, and we’re confident that consumers will enjoy it.”
Established in 1903, the Tsingtao Brewery has grown to become the sixth largest brewer globally and China’s leading exported beer.
A Juicy Oasis (Littleton, CO) – Breckenridge Brewery is upping its “juicy” game with a fruit-forward addition to its growing family of IPAs. Kicking things up aggressively in both temperament and octane, Breckenridge Juicy Oasis is a 9.6% ABV Fruited Hazy IPA that brewed with agave nectar.
“We’ve had several very successful Hazy IPAs over the years, but we’re excited to combine hints of agave nectar – an ingredient derived from our popular Agave Wheat – alongside tropical fruits, making an IPA that is really sensational,” explained Carl Heinz, brewmaster of Breckenridge Brewery. “With the growing demand for high ABV IPAs across the country, we felt like we had a winning liquid on our hands that needed its own name – hence Juicy Oasis.”
