Perrin Brewing Company (Comstock Park, Michigan) has officially announced that Kveik’n It Real Nordic IPA will drop on May 23 as the brewery’s latest Side Hustle Series release.
Arriving as the third release in Perrin Brewing’s Side Hustle Series of innovative brews that “creatively explore new ingredients and techniques”, Kveik’n It Real is a Norwegian-style India Pale Ale “brewed with Norwegian farmhouse yeast, Honindal Kveik, which produces tropical fruit aromas.” To further enhance the fruity character of the yeast, the beer was then “double dry-hopped with fruit-forward Styrian Wolf and Styrian Dragon hops to impart even more citrus and pineapple hop flavor.” Thanks to “a delicate malt backbone of oats and wheat”, Kveik’n It Real (7% ABV) has a hazy appearance and is rounded off with a bit of balance and a soft mouthfeel.
Kveik’n It Real Nordic IPA will officially hit the Perrin Pub on May 23 and distribution is scheduled to follow shortly after the on-site release. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located within Perrin’s distribution footprint in Michigan only. Prost!
