Green Flash Brewing Company (San Diego, California) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Celtic Sun IPA, a special collaboration project with Jameson Irish Whiskey (Dublin, Ireland), on July 1.
Developed as “the first Jameson collaboration with a U.S. craft brewer to create a non-barrel aged beer to be sipped alongside Jameson Caskmates IPA whiskey“, Celtic Sun is a “bright and hoppy” American India Pale Ale crafted with a “recipe . . . designed by the Green Flash brewing team to complement the floral citrus nose, and green apple light citrus tasting notes found in Jameson Caskmates IPA.” Coming in at a smooth-sippin’ 6.2% ABV and 50 IBUs, Celtic Sun IPA is sure to be the “Perfect Irish Complement.”
“Innovation at Green Flash continues to be the cornerstone of our connection with consumers,” stated Green Flash Brewmaster Erik Jensen. “Consumers today enjoy a wide variety of beverage choices, even in a single setting. Our new beer was brewed to offer a unique drinking ritual with whiskey that we’re referring to as the ‘Perfect Irish Complement.’ We’re encouraging everyone to alternate sips of Celtic Sun IPA with Caskmates IPA whiskey to taste how these products truly complement one another. No boilermakers here! We couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with our friends at Jameson to launch Celtic Sun IPA this summer for that perfect Irish Complement.”
Celtic Sun IPA will roll out on July 1 with plans to stick around through August 31. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in California and throughout the rest of Green Flash’s distribution footprint. Prost!
