We are proud to bring back Craft Beer News Roundup, by popular demand. This feature dishes out small but juicy news bits on your favorite beverage: craft beer. In this edition, we talk about Knee Deep Brewing, Firestone Walker, Cigar City Brewing and Great Divide Brewing. Cheers!
Knee Deep Brewing – “Knee Deep will be releasing another 3x IPA in June. No name for it yet (MEPS), but its an Amarillo hop focused Triple IPA. We love big beers”
Firestone Walker – “The official Firestone Walker Brewery Store is opening its doors soon and will soon become a big part of our Paso Robles campus. We’ll be selling all of our Firestone gear, as well as high-end brewing equipment and speciality clothes you won’t find anywhere else! Be sure to check it out.
Cigar City Brewing – Cigar City will soon be contract brewing Impaled Ale for the 4th annual GWAR B-Q music festival being held in Richmond, Virginia on August 17.
For those not familiar, GWAR is a satirical heavy metal band well-known for their elaborate science fiction/horror inspired costumes, obscene lyrics, and graphic stage performances, often featuring political or pop culture mock executions. And blood… lots and lots of blood, among other bodily fluids. But anyone who’s ever been to a GWAR show knows it’s all in good fun.
This metal/craft beer collaboration started three years ago when GWAR fans and homebrewers, Rob and Deidra Chalmers, brewed the first batch of Death Piggy Ale as an homage to the band. Read the entire story over at AmericanCraftBeer.com
