Back in January, we released a Tasting Room-only, New England IPA called Sea Chest.
“It became a quick fan-favorite as well as a staff favorite,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “We really wanted to take the opportunity to bring this back in the summer, especially considering the great reception it got from our Floral Fridays over the winter.”
And it was the perfect beer for those Floral Friday events — they were all about reminiscing about warmer days and summer fun –, and this beer fit right in. With a robust hop blend of Cashmere, Motueka, and Sultana — THFKAD (The Hop Formerly-Known as Denali) –, Sea Chest is definitely a summer IPA.
Fruity, juicy, and highly aromatic, the tropical notes in Sea Chest are perfect for the summer months.
“When I drink this I envision myself hanging out on the beach with friends,” said Lab Manager Lauren Appleman at the time. “This would have been the perfect beer to have outside in the Beer Garden last weekend when temperatures reached the mid-60s.”
It’ll be slightly warmer this weekend — temps in the low-80s with clear skies — a perfect weekend for joining us in our Beer Garden. Sea Chest re-releases on Friday, only in the Tasting Room!
