Monday Night Brewing Revives Serrano Eye Patch Ale

Serrano-Eye-Patch-Clip-On-500pxMonday Night Brewing (Atlanta, Georgia) recently announced that Serrano Eye Patch Ale will be returning for an encore release in April.

Originally released in 2015, Serrano Eye Patch Ale quickly became one of the most popular offerings to come out of Monday Night Brewing’s Clip-On series, a Seasonal lineup that is comprised of creative variants of the brewery’s six core beers.  After a couple years of requests from many dedicated fans, the brewery has finally decided that is time to brew up another batch of this one.  As the name implies, Serrano Eye Patch Ale spices things up a bit by adding fresh cut Serrano peppers to the brewery’s “award-winning English-style IPA, Eye Patch Ale.” The added peppers lend this crisp India Pale Ale a touch of pepper bite that is tempered nicely by the beer’s “caramelly front.”

Serrano Eye Patch Ale will officially release in April and should hang around for three or four months.  This offering will be available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer establishments located in Monday Night’s distribution area of Alabama and Georgia.  Shake things up, wake up those taste buds, and pick up a sixer of Serrano Eye Patch Ale before it disappears once again.  Prost!

Monday Night Brewing takes their Clip-On Series to the Friend Zone

friendzone6pack-800x533_editedMonday Night Brewing (Atlanta, Georgia) has announced that they would like to establish some boundaries and introduce us all to the Friend Zone SMaSH Pale Ale.

Cleverly named to embody the single lifestyle, Friend Zone is an American Pale Ale of the SMaSH variety, (S)ingle (M)alt (a)nd (S)ingle (H)op.  This beer’s minimalist recipe features just “one lonely Mandarina Bavaria hop” and “one lonely Pilsner malt.”  Although these two may be flying solo, they come together to produce a 6.2% ABV Pale Ale filled with notes of sweet grain and citrus.  For a little more information on this brew, here is the full label description for Friend Zone:

“‘Boyfriend’ and ‘Boy friend.’ See that little Space? That’s the friend zone.”  -Unknown


“Once she tells you that she “loves you like a brother,” you know you’ve been relegated to the Friend Zone.  If that ever happens, and we hope it doesn’t, this is your beer.


A single light malt gives hints of honey to sweeten your day.  Mandarina Bavaria hops lend an aroma of sweet orange peel to remind you that one day someone will find you a-peel-ing.”

Friend Zone SMaSH Pale Ale is the latest release in Monday Night’s Clip-On Series, a lineup that typically consists of “variations on year-round beers, available for 3-4 months at a time in 6-packs and on draft.”  This offering was officially launched on January 8 and it can be found now at craft beer establishments in Alabama and throughout the rest of the Monday Night Brewing distribution footprint.  SMaSH beers are a fantastic way to get to know your beer ingredients, so get your education on by picking up a 6-pack of Friend Zone during your next beer run.  Prost!
