From Black Shirt:
It’s the original Man in Black’s birthday! To celebrate Johnny Cash’s extraordinary life, we are pleased to announce our New Release March – ‘Baritone’ Black IPA – a black IPA that is dark and brooding like the man himself. This beer is brewed with oats, wheat, and a malt bill that drives an abundance of milk chocolate & fresh roasted coffee and our generous hopping with Warrior, Chinook, and Simcoe brings resinous pine and bitter citrus to the palate. It is dark and smooth while still having an aggressive edge. Like JR this beer is truly extraordinary!
“Johnny Cash is famous for describing his preference for black clothing as his symbol of rebellion. We can definitely relate. We based our brewery around a punk rock aesthetic of black t-shirts and red ales! It’s unassuming, timeless, and classic. Our interpretation of red ales, however, is anything but!” says co-founder Branden Miller.
We are hosting an all day celebration and release on Sun, Feb 26th, 11am-10pm. We will be playing music from Johnny Cash and screening “Walk The Line” at 7pm. The crew from Rolling Smoke BBQ will be bringing you their scratch made, slow smoked goodies starting at 12pm! The beer will be available on draft and to go in 32oz Crowlers for the month of March. SBS members will be treated to a complimentary 5 oz. pour of the beer on Sun, Feb 26th – bring your card or wear your swag.
With every New Release of the month, we also have a selected Charity of the Month initiative to give back to the community. The month of March brings back Youth On Record. This local charity is dedicated to assisting at-risk youth to graduate from high school and prepare them for the work force through the medium of music. For every draft of Baritone Black IPA sold, we will donate $1 to Youth On Record. That’s beer drinking you can feel good about.
