CatawbaDrumCircleCatawba Brewing Co. (Asheville, North Carolina) has officially announced that Drum Circle Haze Double IPA will enter limited distribution in the Asheville market beginning on Saturday, July 21.

Releasing as the latest offering from Catawba Brewing’s Cloud Cover Series and its first Hazy IPA to see distribution, Drum Circle Haze DIPA is a liquid celebration of a long-standing Asheville tradition that sees “hundreds gather beneath Pritchard Park’s painted skies to partake in the spectacle that is the Drum Circle.” Brewed with a hop bill comprised of Amarillo, Centennial, Citra, El Dorado, Falconer’s Flight and Huell Melon hops, Drum Circle Haze DIPA (8.4% ABV) is an “unfiltered juice bomb” that pays “tribute to the players, the dancers, the hula-hoopers, the spectators, who collectively summon a hazy state of rhythmic transcendence.”

Drum Circle Haze DIPA will officially release in the Asheville market on July 21 and will hang around as long as supplies last.  For this Limited Release, Catawba is sending just 100 cases of 4-packs of 16 oz. cans to Asheville-area stores. This means that Catawba Brewing Co. is “holding back only 20 cases for [its] Asheville tasting rooms.”  This one is guaranteed to disappear with a quickness once it hits shelves, so mark those calendars now and plan accordingly if you wish to partake in the Drum Circle Haze.  Prost!
