This week’s new beer packs a citrus and vanilla punch. The bottle release is a taproom favorite that’s been aging in rum barrels for 5 months and being released just in time for National Rum Day.
Combine either of the new releases with our Sunday brunch and you have a match made in heaven.
Orange Whip – Orange Vanilla Cream Ale
Based on the infamous cocktail from the classic movie “The Blues Brothers”, Orange Whip.
Orange Whip is a classic cream ale aged on 50 vanilla beans and 120 Navel Oranges zested and juiced.
You get a big citrus burst with vanilla goodness on the backend.
If you like those beers with some citrus tang, this is DEFINITELY the beer for you.
You can purchase limited four-packs, crowlers, and growlers to go in the taproom or order to-go at https://rockpitbrewing.com/store
Rum Barrel-Aged Nightmare Shift – Dunkelweizen Doppelbock aged in Rum Barrels
Named for the 22 hour brew day that it took to make it. This beer is a Dunkelweizen that has been brewed to Bock strength and then aged in Rum Barrel’s for 5 months and released specifically for National Rum Day, which is this Sunday, 8/16.
What you get is a classic German beer with rum oak flavor, tiny hints of banana and clove, warming alcohol that finishes smooth and balanced.
So to be sure you’re going to celebrate National Rum Day in style, be sure to grab a bottle of this.
We’ll send out another email to you when this is available to purchase which will be tomorrow 8/14 for subscribers (that’s you) ONLY IF YOU OPEN TODAY’S EMAIL. So go find the email I’ll send Thursday at 2 PM and open the email if you want to buy it first before we release it on Saturday to the general public.
Available in limited bottles and a small amount will be available on tap.
