TBBW 2020 Event: J&B 20/20 IPA Can Release, a Jug & Bottle Dept. & Hidden Springs Ale Works Collaboration

JugBottleHSAWJug & Bottle Dept. (Tampa, Florida) has officially announced that it will be breaking out the good stuff for Tampa Bay Beer Week 2020 when it hosts a Limited Can Release for J&B 20/20, a supremely classy malt beverage brewed in collaboration with Hidden Springs Ale Works (Tampa, Florida), at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 10.

The result of Hidden Springs Ale Works and Jug & Bottle Dept.’s mutual aspiration to create “a malt beverage worthy of its own chain,” J&B 20/20 is a double dry-hopped India Pale Ale featuring “Sabro and Vic Secret hops as well as a healthy dose of blue spirulina.”  Although the spirulina does not contribute any flavor, this pivotal ingredient “does impart a shade of blue similar to everyone’s favorite neon blue gas station wine.”  That’s right . . . J&B 20/20 is a DDH IPA that is both hazy AND blue.

Cans of J&B 20/20 will officially release at Jug & Bottle Dept. (6203 N Florida Ave. | Tampa, Florida) at 5 p.m. on March 10 and will also be available at Hidden Springs Ale Works shortly after this event.  Quantities of J&B 20/20 are incredibly limited, and this special collaboration release will only be available at Jug & Bottle Dept. and Hidden Springs Ale Works as long as supplies last. Prost!
