Albert II, In Memoriam: A Beer Release

June 29, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Space exploration was, at one time, only pioneered by the most bravest of brave — animals. One of those very brave animals, a monkey by the name Albert II, was the very first mammal to successfully be launched into the earth’s atmosphere, 83 miles up into the sky. Unfortunately, in re-entry, upon impact, he passed away! We made a beer, a West Coast Pale Ale, in his honor to celebrate the bravery of Albert II. A true American hero.
This crisp creature is slightly dry with complexities that include a biscuity, malty body and notes of strawberry candy, lemon-lime, and grapefruit pith. We believe that Albert II would be a bit bitter since you probably didn’t even know who he was until you read this blog. We made this beer in remembrance of him. He made it to space, made it back, but didn’t live to see his rightful glory. Rest in peace my furry little friend, rest in peace.
Help us celebrate the life of Albert II on Saturday, June 29th as we host a release of his beer. Albert II will only be available in the taproom and select tap lines throughout the metro area. Check out the full details at the link below.
