Drake’s Releasing Kick Back IPA

imageFrom Drake’s:

Tis the season for session beer! Memorial Day is over and we're opening the floodgates on 6pks and cases of Kick Back IPA starting Friday. You may have gotten a taste of this hoppy golden awesomeness on draft at Session Fest and soon you'll be able to kick back and chill with a sixer on your next outdoor adventure. Proceeds support trail cleanup of our beautiful East Bay Regional Parks.

SAN LEANDRO, CA  | (June 2, 2017) — After a huge kick off in 2016, Drake’s

Brewing Co. is again releasing Kick Back, a golden, hoppy Session IPA. A portion

of the proceeds will support East Bay Regional Parks through Drake’s community

fundraising program. Last year, Drake’s exceeded its goal and raised over $10,000

to support trail cleanup and restoration at the East Bay parks and the brewery has

its sights set on beating that goal in 2017.



Inspired by the brewers’ love for low-ABV, high flavor beers, Kick Back IPA has the

crispness of a lager, with the hoppiness of an IPA. At 4.3% ABV, it’s an easy-going

session beer with lush, tropical fruit aromatics coming from the Mosaic, Simcoe,

and El Dorado hops. Notes of tangerine, peach, and guava pair amazingly with

Gouda or Manchego cheese, a spicy pork banh mi or mixed greens topped with

seared ahi tuna and a tart vinaigrette.



Kick Back makes its debut at the brewery's monthly First Friday party on June 2

and will be available in six packs and on draft through September at Drake’s Barrel

House in San Leandro, Drake’s Dealership in Oakland, as well as distributed

throughout California.



Fans will be able to sample Kick Back at summer events around Northern California

including East Bay Regional Park District’s Concerts at the Cove on June 9, July 14

and Aug. 11 at the Crab Cove Visitor Center in Alameda. 



Once more, proceeds from the sale of every six-pack and pint of Kick Back IPA will

be donated to trail clean up and restoration at East Bay Regional Parks, a system

of 65 parks and more than 1,250 miles of trails, including 40 miles of shoreline, in

Alameda and Contra Costa counties.
