To make sure that they close out a tumultuous April on a high note, the folks at Escape Brewing Company are hooking up their fans by releasing cans of a classic go-to brew and a new offering that has a fantastic cause.  The descriptions for each beer are as follows (descriptions sourced directly from the brewery’s newsletter and social media accounts):

  • Five Flags Pilsner – This beloved classic is finally back in 4-packs and ready to go home with you! Enjoy this light and crisp pilsner on the porch or on the couch while binge watching Netflix. It’s perfect anytime, anywhere…in the house.  ABV – 5%
  • All Together Hazy IPA – A 6.5% Hazy/Juicy India Pale Ale hopped with Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and Cascade.
    All Together is a Worldwide, open-ended beer collaboration created by Other Half Brewing Company to raise support for the industry we all know and love. It’s an effort to raise awareness and provide relief, even in the smallest way, to those who are struggling.
    Escape Brewing Company has decided to use a portion of the proceeds to support the amazing peeps in our local community that have had their lives turned upside down by this unprecedented event. We will be purchasing food from two locally owned independent restaurants, Craft Street Kitchen Trinity and The Stadium. We will be delivering this food to our local first responders in the coming weeks.
    In addition to supporting our local first responders, we will be using a portion of the proceeds to purchase gift cards from another local owned independent restaurant The Little Lamb and will distribute to hospitality workers in our local community.

Five Flags Pilsner and All Together Hazy IPA will be available for pickup in the Taproom at Escape Brewing Company beginning at 3 p.m. on April 30.  Both of these Limited Release offerings will be available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans as long as supplies last.  Five Flags and All Together are both taproom exclusive releases and will not see distribution.  Prost!

TBBW 2020 Event: Triple Can Drop at Escape Brewing Company

EscapeLogo400sqBeginning on March 11, Escape Brewing Company (Trinity, Florida) will be celebrating Tampa Bay Beer Week 2020 by having three straight days of can drops featuring three new beers: Strawberry Lemonade Sour, Poolside Chill Sour and Got Your Stash Hazy DIPA.

Recognizing that Tampa Bay Beer Week is always a great time to introduce a new beer or three, Escape Brewing Company will be taking care of their fans and anyone else who makes the trip up to the northern burbs by releasing 16 oz. cans of the following three Limited Release brews (descriptions sourced directly from the brewery’s social media posts): 

  • Wednesday, March 11 at 4 p.m. | Strawberry Lemonade Sour – A mouth puckering, eye watering taste of Florida. Enjoy being wrapped up in a smooth strawberry front-end before getting a love bite from the sour lemonade. If sunshine had a taste this would be it! We think our favorite superhero, Florida Man, would consider this his go-to beer.
  • Thursday, March 12 at 4 p.m. | Poolside Chill Sour – A guava, lime & grapefruit Berliner Weisse with enough Florida attitude to make you say, “Hot dang!” Guava sweetly dances on your tongue but quickly switches to a feisty lime & grapefruit bite faster than the weather changes here! We recommend this sour for any day, rain or shine you’ll feel just like you’re by the pool while sipping this sour & sweet treat.
  • Friday, March 13 at Noon | Got Your Stash Hazy DIPA – A favorite in the taproom for a long time. We heard your cries for a revolution and rest assured we have delivered! This is our first canning of Stash and we are so happy to share this with everyone on the last day of TBBW. Talk about going out with a bang! This hazy DIPA will give you that great Nelson & Citra hop taste while mellowing out on the back end.

All three beers listed above will release in the Taproom at Escape Brewing Company (9945 Trinity Boulevard | Trinity, Florida) on their listed dates and times.  Each Limited Release offering will be available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans as long as supplies last.

If you are in town partaking in all the Tampa Bay Beer Week festivities, be sure to build some time into your schedule to make a trip (or three) out to Trinity so that you can grab a 4-pack and raise a glass with the always awesome crew at Escape Brewing Company.  Prost!

EscapePartyOn Saturday, September 23 at 7 p.m., Escape Brewing Company (Trinity, Florida) will officially celebrate its Third Anniversary by hosting a ticketed party and special bottle release featuring three versions of its Bourbon Barrel-aged Seeds of Doubt Russian Imperial Stout.

After John McGregor and Matt Thompson cut their teeth making homebrew in their garages, they decided to leave their jobs in corporate America three years ago to found Escape Brewing Company.  Armed with just the American dream, a 3 BBL brew system, a taproom and limited distribution; Matt, John and their team have since established themselves in the Tampa beer community and endeared themselves to their countless fans and regulars in Trinity.  All the folks at Escape Brewing Company realize that the past three years of success would not have been possible without those fans, so they are going to throw one hell of an Anniversary Party as a thank you.  There are a lot of details to cover when it comes to this shindig, so let’s get to it!

The Basics

What – Escape Brewing Company’s 3 Year Anniversary Party & Bottle Release
When – Saturday, September 23 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Where – 9945 Trinity Blvd Suite 108, Trinity, Florida

The Beer

The two versions above will have a total bottle limit of six (6) bottles per person.  This limit is aggregate, meaning you could do “4 Knob Creek and 2 Four Roses or 3 Knob Creek and 3 Four Roses or 1 Four Roses and 5 Knob Creek.” Basically, you can mix and match however you wish just as long as your total amounts to 6 or fewer bottles.

There will also be a third version of Bourbon Barrel-aged Seeds of Doubt available during this event, but this one is much more limited in quantity.  Thanks to their friends at Craft Street Kitchen, Escape Brewing got ahold of a hand-selected 13 Year Knob Creek barrel and you know they put some Seeds of Doubt in that bad boy.  Seeds of Doubt Russian Imperial Stout Barrel Aged in a 13 Year Knob Creek Barrel will be available for the cost of $25 each and will have a separate limit of one (1) bottle per person.
