Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales (Dexter, Michigan) has proudly announced that Sobrehumano Palena`ole will officially return as a limited release beginning on Monday, February 6.
Originally released in the summer of 2012 as a collaboration beer with Maui Brewing Co. (Kihei, Hawaii), Sobrehumano Palena`ole quickly became an instant classic within the craft beer community and has since been one of Jolly Pumpkin’s “most asked about beers.” The reason behind this beer’s success can be found in its recipe and inspiration:
“Sobrehumano Palena`ole bridges the divide between Dexter and Maui, 4391 miles to be exact, combining fruit from each region, cherries and passion fruit, in a 6% ABV red ale before aging in oak for ten months.”
Although Sobrehumano Palena`ole retains the soul of its original release, this batch was aged in a slightly different manner. Due to the limitations of their previous facility, Jolly Pumpkin was forced to create the 2012 release in “10 barrel batches followed by rigorous blending.” This time around, their brewers were able to employ the use of “foeder aging of larger batches, allowing the return of this long gone favorite.”
Sobrehumano Palena`ole is available now at all Jolly Pumpkin locations. 750ml bottles of this limited release will then enter distribution beginning on February 6. You can expect to find this special offering available at select craft beer establishments in Alabama, Florida, and “throughout the entire Jolly Pumpkin network, from Michigan to Maui.” If you are interested in securing a bottle of Sobrehumano Palena`ole, be sure to keep a watchful eye on your area bottle shops at the beginning of February because this beer will most certainly move with a quickness once released. Prost!
