SweetWater Brewing and Telluride Brewing Collaborate on Torikumi Wasabi Blonde Ale

unnamed (24)SweetWater Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has announced a release date of June 8 for Torikumi Wasabi Infused Blonde Ale, the brewery’s latest Dank Tank release and collaboration with Telluride Brewing Co. (Telluride, Colorado).

Chris Fish, Brewmaster at Telluride Brewing Co., recently ventured to Atlanta to meet up with SweetWater’s Nick Nock so the two could share the ol’ Dank Tank for a little collaboration action.  After the two explored Atlanta’s Buford Highway, a culinary playground of international cuisine, they returned to the brewery with the inspiration to brew something with wasabi.  That something became Torikumi Wasabi Infused Blonde Ale (7.5% ABV and 27 IBUs).  The addition of wasabi provides some “serious heat” to the Blonde Ale base, making the beer a perfect candidate to enjoy as a pairing for a wide variety of dishes.

SweetWater Brewing Company will officially release Torikumi Wasabi Infused Blonde Ale at a brewery launch party on Thursday, June 8 (click here for more details on the party).  Starting the week of June 12, this limited offering will have availability in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer bars, restaurants and retailers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and throughout the rest of SweetWater Brewing’s distribution area.  Prost!
