New Realm Brewing Embraces Summer with Release of Lemon Pucker

lemon-puckerNew Realm Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Lemon Pucker Berliner Weisse in June.

Arriving as the second release in New Realm’s newly-established Sour Series, Lemon Pucker is a Berliner Weisse that has been dry-hopped with Lemondrop hops and then hit with an addition of lemon peel.  Originally brewed as “a pilot batch in April of 2018”, Lemon Pucker (3.8% ABV) has returned for the summer to act as the perfect pairing for “porch swings, sunny skies, giant pool floats and staycations.”

“I like to call this grown up lemonade without the sugar,” said Mitch Steele Co-Founder and Brewmaster of New Realm Brewing. “At our brewing team’s suggestion, we dry hopped with Lemondrop hops and added lemon peels post-fermentation. The result is a tart, refreshing and extremely lemony beer that became a crowd favorite at both of our taprooms.”

Lemon Pucker will debut in June and is scheduled to stick around through July 2019.  You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-friendly retailers, bars and restaurants located within New Realm’s distribution footprint in Georgia and the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.  Prost!

New Realm Brewing Expands Distribution to Virginia

hoptropolis-ipaNew Realm Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has announced that it has partnered with Hoffman Beverage so that it can soon begin distributing its lineup of craft beers in the state of Virginia.

When news broke that New Realm Brewing Company had secured a second location in the former Green Flash facility in Virginia Beach, everyone knew it was just a matter of time before the brewery’s tasty beers would start flowing in establishments local to that area.  Well, that facility may not be open to the public yet, but beer is being brewed and it is now ready for distribution in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.

“The Hampton Roads area of Virginia has many quality beer distribution options,” says Bob Powers, co-founder and Chief Customer Officer at New Realm. “We have chosen to work with Hoffman Beverage due to their incredible passion for craft beer, our aligned strategy of brand building, and their experience with many other small, independent craft breweries.”

New Realm will officially launch distribution in Virginia with the following core beers (descriptions sourced from the brewery’s website):

  • Hoplandia IPA – A New Realm-style IPA. Dense with sought-after hops and lush with a heavenly hit of citrus.  ABV – 7.3%
  • Hoptropolis IPA – Set your clocks to island time. This beauty is drenched in tropical flavors of peach, pear and pineapple.  ABV – 6.5%
  • Euphonia Pilsner – A true brewer’s beer. Hop bursted with prolific hop aromatics and heightened levels of refreshment.  ABV – 5%
  • Kikimora Imperial IPA – A dank IPA. Pronounced with peachy, floral, light citrus complexities and a strong, dry finish to the palate.  ABV – 8.5%

In addition to core offerings, New Realm Brewing will also treat consumers in Virginia to “select brews from [its] limited release, small-batch specialty beers, starting with Lemon Pucker Berliner Weisse and Belga Rose Belgian Hibiscus Ale (available soon), followed by additional releases in late 2018.”

With the help of Hoffman Beverage, the New Realm beers listed above “will be available on draft at craft-focused bars, restaurants and retailers” located in the Southside area of Virginia’s Hampton Roads.  The brewery plans to introduce packaged offerings in Virginia at the start of 2019.  New Realm Brewing Company offerings can also be found distributed in the state of Georgia.  Prost!
