Newsletter: We’re so excited…..

…..and we just can’t hide it!

Apologies we didn’t get the newsletter out last week. You see, we were kind of busy… getting two new styles in cans!  That of course, brings us to a very obvious question…

Ask the Brewer

So, what are your two new beer styles available in liquor stores?

We’re so happy you asked!  As pictured above, you can see that both our “Parched” Lime Shandy and our “Raj-Agni” IPA are now available in cans.  Our distributor just picked them up last Friday, so they should be starting to make the rounds into liquor stores and other retail establishments across Minnesota.

With “Parched”, the citrus notes of our all American hops combined with the lime of our shandy will have you salsa dancing in no time. Our fans state that this shandy tastes like summer.  Not too sweet; a nice tartness balancing with the hops as if they were meant to be together.

“Raj-Agni” is an adapted version of the historical English style, offering a balanced bitterness with a slight hint of blackstrap molasses. Using exclusively Cluster hops allows us to bring forth both spicy and floral aromas to compliment the mix between earthy flavors and sweet fruits.

As you can imagine, we are pretty damn excited to have a range of styles to offer.  If your local store stocks Pyro and/or Roasted, you can ask them to stock Parched and Raj-Agni as well.  Help us to spread the word!  Cheers!
