Downingtown, PA, August 10, 2016 – Victory Brewing Company announces the return of Sour Monkey, a sharp twist on their Belgian-style Tripel, Golden Monkey and Moonglow Weizenbock, a spicy and fruity dark amber wheat. Sour Monkey made its debut in 2015 while Moonglow has been a Victory staple for 15 years. Hitting shelves in August, both beers pack a punch at 9.5% and 8.7% ABV respectively and are perfect bookends to the summer season. Sour Monkey is a refreshingly tart brew to bid adieu to summer while Moonglow is the perfect welcome ‘bock’ to autumn.

Returning for its second season, Sour Monkey incorporates multiple fermentations – the first of which incorporates Westmalle yeast that lends itself to the traditional ‘monkey’ character for which it’s named. The sour, Brettanomyces-infused Tripel is a transformation of Victory’s beloved, Golden Monkey. Sour Monkey combines whole flower hops with Pilsner malt and coriander before adding the fun and funk of non-standard yeast varieties. These yeasts are known for their volatility and are often left out of the brewing process due to their hard to control nature. However, the brewers at Victory have harnessed the power of the yeast with a unique recipe, fermentation control, and final blending within the brewing process, to create exciting, savory nuances. Sour Monkey is available across the 37 states where Victory is sold in 750 ml bottles retailing at approximately $9.

Moonglow Weizenbock originates from German brewing tradition utilizing whole flower German hops and German malts. A rich, dark beer it is brewed with over 50% malted wheat, making it a traditional unfiltered Bavarian weizenbock. Fruity, spicy and nutty aromas create deep warmth and flavors of clove, vanilla and honey make it an ideal sipper. Moonglow is available in 12 oz. bottles across Victory’s footprint for approximately $9.99/four pack.

“We’re happy to bring back these 2 popular beers. As each brand has a different base of loyal fans awaiting the return of these seasonals,” said Founder and Brewmaster Bill Covaleski. “Whether it’s bringing back classics like Moonglow or creating new riffs on fan favorites by experimenting with Golden Monkey until we landed on Sour Monkey, our brewers build on traditional German brewing to create new and exiting flavors and that’s what tasting Victory has always been about.”
