Craft Brewing and Distilling News for April 4, 2017April 4, 2017
•Connecticut-based Two Roads Brewing Co. is releasing the first beer in its Tanker Truck Sour Series, a Passion Fruit Gose. The 5.2%-abv brew has a tropical fruit-driven flavor profile and the characteristic salinity of the gose style. The Tanker Truck series gets its name from the fact that Two Roads sours the beers in a milk truck owned by the brewery. The second beer in the series, a Persian Lime Gose, will debut in June. Both beers will be available on draft and in four-packs of 16-ounce cans throughout Two Roads’ 10-state distribution area.
•This month, Colorado’s Avery Brewing Co. will introduce its much-anticipated Coconut Porter. The 10.4%-abv beer is infused with locally-roasted coconut flakes and aged in Bourbon barrels. Avery initially planned to release the beer in early 2016 but delayed the release to improve the coconut infusion process. Now, the company is confident that it can consistently brew Coconut Porter year round. The Coconut Porter is the fifth beer in Avery Brewing’s “Botanicals & Barrels” series and will available on draft and in 22-ounce bottles nationwide.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
