Shorts Brewing Raisin Apollo, Juicy Tree, Batch 1000 ControversiALE (aka Hangin’ Frank)

30 January 2012

All sorts of exciting news coming from Shorts Brewing Co’s Facebook Page:

You asked for it and you got it! Last year's experimental IPA, Raisin Apollo, is being released in bottles! This is an extremely limited release that should make it to some stores within a couple weeks. Raisin Apollo - a double IPA fermented with golden raisins. A creation of Short's Brewer Curt Guntzviller, his likeness -- modestly covered by a hop leaf -- graces the label.

Another brand new beer is going on tap at our Pub today. Juicy Tree~ An experimental IPA made with blue spruce tips, juniper berries, and cranberries. Piney evergreen and sweet berries tingle the senses. After some slightly tart and tangy flavors up front, a harmonious balance between pleasant fruit sweetness and bitter pine is reached. A sizable malt bill, ample hop additions, and the floral fruity qualities of American Ale yeast all contribute to symmetry of this beer. The finish is laced with a resiny stickiness that flows naturally into a lasting bitterness. 7.5% ABV

We're not sure what the groundhog will say about the onset of spring, but we brewed our spring seasonal, ControversiALE, for the first time today. ControversiALE, formerly Hangin' Frank, will hit stores at the end of March.

The main part of batch 1000 of Huma Lupa Licious, a/k/a "AwwJeah" is going to be one of the most awesome Short's Brews ever. It's mutant cousin, "Mmkay" (also part of batch 1000), is also turning out amazingly. Lots of fun stuff to look forward to! We're anticipating that we'll release these sometime this spring. Cheers to your 1000th batch, Huma!

Update…here’s the 12oz ControversiALE label!
