This is one taproom release you can't miss...AND YOU KNOW THIS MAN!


Charlotte’s The Unknown Brewing Company gives a wink and nod to a 90s movie catchphrase with the release their newest open fermented Brett IPA, Rye Felicia.

Inspired by the coined phrase “Bye, Felicia” from the 1995 comedy film “Friday,” Rye Felicia puts a sassy twist on the American India Pale Ale — and not just because of the name.

Brewed with hazy juice drops, the brewery says Rye Felicia IPA is fermented with a blend of ale yeast and Brett Drie, then dried with an aromatic variety of hops.

“Friday is such a hilarious movie from back in the day,” said Brad Shell, founder and owner of The Unknown Brewing Company, which was originally founded in 2013. “Over the past couple years, Ice Cube’s line ‘Bye, Felicia’ has become such a catchphrase that we thought it was the perfect name for a beer that’s in your face like Felicia.”

Rye Felicia adds one more IPA to The Unknown Brewing Company’s 2017 beer release calendar. In addition to Over The Edge, their flagship American IPA, The Unknown is releasing three other IPAs this year, Scratch ‘N Sniff (out now), Let’s Get Tropical and Sneaky Penguin.

Rye Felicia will (appropriately) be released Friday, April 28, at The Unknown Brewing Company at 1327 South Mint Street in Charlotte, just a few blocks from Bank of America Stadium. The brewery will be screening the movie “Friday” at the release party from 4 p.m-10 p.m. An ice cream truck will also be available at the release party, serving as another nod to the film. You can find more details on the taproom release at The Unknown’s event page on Facebook.

In addition to The Unknown’s taproom, you can grab Rye Felicia in 12-oz. cans throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
