Some mixed news just came out from Night Shift Brewing who have just announced that their newest batch of Whirlpool, which was slated to be canned and released this upcoming Thursday has instead been poured down the drain. It failed to meet their quality standards and they will instead shoot to can and release a new batch on August 19th.
However they’ve also announced some great news including three new beer releases which are to take place over the next three days, Wednesday through Friday. Two of the new releases are new beers in their popular and experiment Art Series and without further due here are the details:
This American IPA was brewed is an “insanely juicy sipper is loaded with various experimental & NZ hops, and then fermented with pineapples & clementines” that will be available for draft and growler fills. It was a collaboration between Night Shift and Beer’d Brewing from Stonington CT and Aaren Simoncini, Beer’d Brewing’s head brewer and owner will be in attendance.
They will be releasing bottles of Wild King, a 2012 collaboration beer brewed with Backlash Brewing. Expect some local raspberries in there as well as some brettanomyces. This will be somewhat of an upgrade for what could and should have been the canning and release of a new batch of Whirlpool. The Backlash crew will be present for this as well although no time has been specified.
A new beer from the Art series will be released, Art #29 which is a Sour Mosaic pale ale aged in oak barrels for 4 months with some wild yeast before being dry-hopped with some Mosaic hops. But that’s not all, they’ll also be releasing Art #30, ‘Honey from Down Under’ which is a hoppy, Ameriacn double brown ale brewed with honey and Southern hemisphere hops.
