Just a few short months after joining the Green Flash family, Alpine Beer Company is set to make their first appearance outside of California. Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Virginia markets will all be receiving beer from the San Diego brewery this week.
In celebration of Alpine coming to new taps up and down the coast, several launch parties have been scheduled. Be sure to check out an event near you:
At this time, these markets will only be receiving draught. Unfortunately, quantities are very limited. Once this initial batch is gone, it’s gone. Rumor has it that more kegs will returning to the east coast come September. So, in other words, get it while the getting is good!
Here is the full lineup of Alpine Beer Company that will be available:
Alpine Ale – “Our namesake ale represents everything a good, well balanced pale ale should be: malty but not too sweet, refreshing but not too bitter, full-bodied but not too heavy, lively but not over carbonated. A clean, everyday beer that leaves your palate begging for more. 1.054 OG 32 IBU 5.5%ABV”
Mcilhenney’s Irish Red – “Our most versatile beer. Good to drink as well as cook with. Light enough to quench a thirst and complex enough to accompany fine dining. Carmel malty sweet fades to a chocolate roasty finish and dry from a touch of rye. 1.057 OG 13 IBU 6%wABV”
Pure Hoppiness – “A mega-hopped it will take you to hop heaven. We’ve used hops in the boil, more hops in the giant hopback, and added to that, an incredible amount of dry-hopping for that cutting-edge “hop bite.” Once you’ve tasted this unique beer, all others pale in comparison. 1.072 OG 8%ABV”
Duet – “Our original single IPA made with Simcoe and Amarillo hops “in harmony.” 1.065 OG 7%ABV”
Nelson – “An outstanding hop from New Zealand, Nelson Sauvin, is generously used throughout the brewing and dry-hopping of this unique beer. European rye is added for a smooth, malty addition to flavor. 1.065 OG 7%ABV”
Hoppy Birthday – “Truth is, everyone has a birthday, and when you want to celebrate this session able hop forward pale ale is a gift to the senses Dry-Hopped like an IPA and light enough to enjoy again and again. Now make a wish and blow out the candle. But don’t tell anyone the wish or it won’t come true.”
Captain Stout – “The Captain is leader of a fire crew. This beer takes charge of your taste buds with its rich flavor. Roasty malt character that has hints of chocolate and coffee which balances the smooth, velvety finish. The thick, creamy head lasts and lasts, leaving lace in your glass as your beer disappears. This beer pairs well with food. Great with dinner or as breakfast or even with a rich vanilla-bean ice cream. 1.060 OG 31 IBU 6%ABV”
