Today is the day. The "Freedom Of '78," Pure Guava Wheat India Pale is alive and kicking. We went out on a limb with this beer. Working with a boat load of Guava from Ecuador was "different," but 40 days & one Ween show later we landed on a beer we're psyched about; a 7% double dry hopped screamer with some wheat tones and a nose that rings of island life.
Our thanks to Joe Short and the fine folks of Short's Brewing in Bellaire, MI for hooking up here to brew beer, checking out the Ween show and their Jedi fruit tactics.
Also to Jonathan Cutler from Piece for spending some quality brew time.
This beer will be released today, August 6, 2010 at 4:00pm, no earlier.
Growler fills are $13+tax and 22oz bombers are $9.01+tax (buy two for $19.78(after tax))
This beer will only be available at our brewery (4257 N. Lincoln Ave, Chicago) & we'll bring it to the Great Taste of the Midwest. It's a one and done beer so it's here till it's gone.
