Today we get to see a new bottle coming from Mikkeller San Diego and The Descendents --Feel This Coffee IPA and the beer uses Dark Matter coffee (named after the Descendents "Hypercaffium Spazzinate" album). This beer will hit 7.3%-AbV and you’re looking at the 22oz bottle. Stay tuned for release details.
This beer will be released in Nov 2016. This from Mikkeller:
We’re proud to announce that we have partnered up with the Descendents to create a new beer called Feel This – a 7.3 % coffee IPA brewed with Dark Matter Hypercaffium Spazzinate coffee beans.
“Having grown up in the punk rock and skate punk scene, it was an honor to be given the opportunity to create a beer for the Descendents to celebrate their recently released album,” said Bill Batten, Mikkeller SD Brew Master). “While doing this collaboration we got an opportunity to meet the Dark Matter boys and learn about their coffee process. Using their roasting profiles, in combination with our passion for hop-forward IPA’s, we were able to create a special beer as unique as the band.”
The beer ships out this week to distribution outlets in 25 states across the United States. It will be available to retailer and consumers while supplies last. A portion will be sold through Mikkeller’s webshop in Europe.
The beer is named after the legendary punk band’s song “Feel This” from the Descendents most-recent album Hypercaffium Spazzinate, which is out now on Epitaph.
