Fans of Green Flash beer, listen up: This morning, Mike Hinkley, co-founder and CEO of Green Flash Brewing Co., announced the national and year-round debut of three Green Flash beers in 12oz cans as an extension of their existing packaged beer assortment.
Six-packs of canned Green Flash beers will hit store shelves in June. The new can offerings will include: Jibe Session IPA, Passion Fruit Kicker (a fruited American Wheat Ale), and Sea to Sea Zwickel Lager.
Jibe Session IPA is a 4% ABV session ale that’s “well-balanced with notes of floral, citrus, and vibrant hop character.”
Passion Fruit Kicker is a “smooth brew with sweet, tart, fruity flavor.” It’s layered with passion fruit tea and passion fruit juice with wheat malt and 2-row malted barley, and clocks in at 5.5% ABV.
Sea to Sea is an unfiltered Zwickel lager layered with German Pilsner malts, Hallertau Mittelfreüh and Czech Saaz hops, 2-row barley, and traditional Pilsner yeast. It’s a sessionable beer at 4% ABV with a “light body, subtle sweet malt, and fruity hop flavors, notable lager yeast, and a crisp, clean finish.”
Green Flash first introduced cans with Jibe Session IPA in September 2015, to an extremely limited distribution but overwhelmingly positive reception. The brewery plans to produce 18,000 cases in 2016, up from 2,000 cases in 2015.
