Cahaba Brewing Co. (Birmingham, Alabama) recently announced that they will release Oka Uba IPA and Oktoberfest Ale in cans beginning on Monday, September 5.
The folks at Cahaba Brewing first entered the market of canned craft beers back in 2015 with the release of American Blonde Ale. Although this offering has seen great success since, a brewery relocation/expansion and a bit of a shortage among suppliers of aluminum cans delayed Cahaba from growing their line of packaged offerings. These issues have all been worked out and now Oka Uba IPA and Oktoberfest Ale are nearly ready for shelves. If you are unfamiliar with these offerings, here are their full descriptions from the brewery:
Oka Uba IPA – “Oka Uba IPA was designed how we believe an IPA should taste. Experience our passion for craft beer with this hoppy IPA highlighted by citrus and floral notes as well as a crisp hop finish without being overly bitter. Generous late hops additions and a subtle malt character make Oka Uba IPA one of the most drinkable IPAs you’ll find.” ABV: 7.5%
Oktoberfest Ale – “Our Fall seasonal is our take on an Oktoberfest style beer. Brewed with continental malts, a generous amount of noble hops, and a unique twist on the fermenting yeast, Oktoberfest is one of our favorite beers. It’s malty, full body, and well balanced hop character make it a perfect fall beer to enjoy with your friends.” ABV: 7.5%
Both of these offerings will become officially available in cans on September 5. Although Oka Uba IPA will be available year-round in cans, Oktoberfest is a Seasonal release that will only be available in cans and on draft for the next two months. Look for these brews wherever you normally find Cahaba Brewing offerings. Prost!
