If you Google “Imperial Smoothie Ale”, you’re not likely to find much. Yet, when we decided to head to Extreme Beer Fest at the beginning of February, we knew we needed an ace in the hole to make people sit up and take notice.

And they did.

“This is the best thing to come out of New Jersey since Bon Jovi!” enthused one attendee.

Well… it’s her life and we thank her for loving us, but, let’s face it, she’s livin’ on a prayer if she thinks Tiny Drink Umbrella: Imperial Smoothie Ale is better than Bon Jovi. It’s better than a bed of roses and we’ll never say goodbye to her, but it’s not much more than a damn good beer. Nonetheless, we thank her for keeping the faith.

Either way, we pulled a few kegs before we left and made sure we had enough left over to bring it to you, our faithful fans, in a limited release of 49 cases this Saturday.
