Summer beers are a tricky thing. You want something that has some flavor, but something that isn’t going to be so filling that it’s going to weigh you down. Everyone needs to be able to execute the perfect swan dive at the pool over the summer. Concrete Ship — while a great beer — isn’t exactly going to do that for you.
You also want something that you can day-drink on a lazy summer day, so you don’t want something with a huge ABV. Again, Concrete Ship — probably not your best choice. It’s 9.5% ABV. If you try to day-drink with that beast, you’ll end up passed out by noon. (NB: THIS IS NOT A CHALLENGE.)
When it comes to summer beers, you want something light and refreshing. You want something thirst-quenching and crushable. You want something that’s not going to weigh you down and you want something that’s not going to kill you on alcohol.
And, preferably, you want it in a bottle.
Enter: Summer Catch.
“Summer Catch was a huge hit last summer,” Ryan says. “People were loving it, and we couldn’t keep it in stock. But only having growler fills made it a little difficult for people to enjoy at their barbecues or by the pool.”
Never fear, y’all!
Everyone’s favorite summer beer will be available in bottles beginning Monday, June 26th.
Summer Catch is all about balance — that’s why we’ve got a surfer balancing on the bottle.
“Surfing is all about balance, balancing while ripping it down the face of a wave, as well as balancing your mind, body, and soul,” says our resident surfing fanatic and Director of Brewing Operations, Jimmy Valm.
“That’s why Summer Catch is the ideal surfing beer, the fruity esters and slightly spicy phenolics are in perfect harmony with the citrusy hops, with a crisp refreshing feel that is great after a few hours of bobbing around in the salty seawater.”
It is, quite simply, the perfect summer brew.
And now, there’s no more lugging growlers to your next barbecue. No more having to trek down to the brewery to pick it up. Now, you’ll be able to pick up Summer Catch at your favorite bottle shop.
Check out that bottle! It’s the first one with our new design, and we’re big fans. We’ve got the perfect glassware for it if you miss the straight-from-the-tap feel, and a pretty cool t-shirt, too!
Summer Catch will be available in bottles in the Tasting Room on Friday the 23rd, and will be out for distribution on Monday the 26th. Catch it in your favorite bottle shop!
