Restricted Area DIPA Joins New Realm’s Monsters & Myths Series

New Realm Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Restricted Area Double IPA in late April 2022.

The second release of 2022 in the brewery’s Monsters & Myths Series of Limited Release brews inspired by the “world’s most famous (and infamous) mythical legends,” Restricted Area – a reference to the secrets housed at Area 51 – is a West Coast-style Double India Pale Ale “brewed with a paranormal amount of Citra and Mosaic hops for a hop-forward beer that is ripe with citrus, berry, and stone fruit aromatics.” Coming in at 9% ABV and 50 IBUs, Restricted Area is sure to “transfer [you] to another dimension.”

“Restricted Area is a classic West Coast-style DIPA, exclusively brewed with two popular hop varieties, Citra and Mosaic. We had never brewed a beer that exclusively used these two hops, until a recent pilot brew. It was so well received in our taproom, that we knew we needed to use this blend in Restricted Area DIPA. Besides being dry-hopped at 3 lbs. per barrel, we also used a blend of American, English and German malts to this DIPA, to give Restricted Area even more complexity and depth.” Shared Mitch Steele, Co-Founder and Brewmaster of New Realm Brewing.

“Our Monsters & Myths DIPA series is a favorite among beer fans every year, and we can’t wait for Restricted Area to make its debut as our newest addition to the lineup,” said Bob Powers, Co-Founder and Chief Sales & Marketing Officer of New Realm Brewing. “We joke that Restricted Area is a ‘Martian-Style’ DIPA, but really, it’s just out of this world! We cannot wait to see what our hop-loving beer fans think of this new release.”

Restricted Area is rolling out now and will hang around only as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within New Realm’s distribution footprint in Georgia, Virginia, and Lowcountry South Carolina.

New Realm Brewing Company adds beLOW Hazy IPA to Year-Round Lineup

New Realm Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that beLOW Hazy IPA, the brewery’s first low-carb and Hazy IPA, will join its Year-Round lineup in March 2021.

Developed to capture the “lighter side of IPA” at New Realm Brewing Company, beLOW is a sessionable Hazy/Juicy India Pale Ale “anchored by one of the company’s favorite hop combinations and a meticulously engineered brewing process.” Coming in at just 4% ABV, 20 IBUs, 99 calories and 4.2g of carbs, the “light, crisp and refreshing” beLOW “is the perfect balance of bright citrusy notes, drinkability and low-carb profile.”

“This beer is something special”, said Bob Powers, Co-Founder and Chief Sales & Marketing Officer of New Realm Brewing. “It’s citrusy, refreshing, and has the hop character that IPA lovers crave, with less than half the calories. beLOW was brewed with high-quality, all-natural ingredients and doesn’t make a consumer compromise taste, quality, or their healthy, active lifestyle like some beers.”

“We created beLOW with some of my favorite hop varieties which lend a light, citrusy flavor profile that impresses the palate. The process of brewing a low-carb, low-calorie beer is very unique and challenging. In most beers there is a residual sweetness in the final product, and carbs come with that rich sweetness. With beLOW, we use exogenous enzymes to break down the complex sugars in the wort which leaves the beer with a drier finish and significantly less carbs than your standard IPA, without sacrificing any flavor,” said Brewmaster and Co-Founder Mitch Steele.

beLOW Hazy IPA will debut on March 2 with availability in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft. You can expect to find this new Year-Round offering at select craft beer-focused establishments located within New Realm’s distribution footprint in Georgia and Virginia. Prost!

New Realm Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Barbados Rum Barrel-Aged Oaxaca Choca Imperial Mexican Chocolate Stout on November 10, 2020.

The first of five releases in the brewery’s 2020-21 Wooded Reserve Series that “represents the true spirit of brewing exploration and harkens back to the original renaissance of beer spurred by the hardworking barrel makers,” Barbados Rum Barrel-Aged Oaxaca Choca takes the fan-favorite base beer – Oaxaca Choca, “an Imperial Stout reminiscent of Mexican-style hot chocolate, is loaded with cinnamon, vanilla, chili peppers and locally roasted cacao nibs” – and carefully ages it for six months in Barbados Rum barrels. Coming in at 10.8% ABV, Barbados Rum Barrel-Aged Oaxaca Choca “is creamy, full-bodied, with notes of cocoa, cinnamon, and raisin . . . [alongside] light burnt sugar notes provided by the rum barrels, while the oak is enhanced by the subtle vanilla in the beer.”

“Oaxaca Choca was developed by Mitch’s team in our inaugural year, a beautiful Imperial Mexican Chocolate Stout that is always one of our most sought-after annual releases,” said Bob Powers, Co-Founder and Chief Sales Marketing Officer for New Realm Brewing. “We decided to age it in rum barrels to up the ante even further – now the oak, coconut, vanilla, and molasses rum flavors from aging in the wood, complement the chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, and chili pepper notes of the original beer.”

New Realm Brewing Closes Out 2020 Monsters & Myths Series with El JuicyCabra DIPA

New Realm Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of El JuicyCabra, the fourth and final release of 2020 in the brewery’s Monsters and Myths Double IPA Series, on October 20.

Inspired by and named after “the insatiable folk legend” of El Chupacabra, El JuicyCabra is a “New England meets West Coast” Double India Pale Ale that has been “aggressively” dry-hopped with Amarillo, Mosaic and Calypso hops to create “intense tropical fruit, stone fruit, and citrus notes.” Clocking in at 9% ABV and 50 IBUs, El JuicyCabra comes together to be a “super juicy, yet clear, Double IPA.”

“What we tried to do with El JuicyCabra DIPA was combine the best of both worlds, the juiciness of a Hazy IPA, and the clarity of more traditional styles. The result is a tasty DIPA with tropical citrus and herbal hop character” said Mitch Steele, Co-Founder, and Brewmaster of New Realm Brewing.

“With our Monsters & Myths lineup, we created a series of Double IPAs that allowed us to include our award-winning Tyrannosaurus Flex DIPA from the year before. During concepting and brainstorming sessions, we agreed that the versatility to explore various folk legends and depict them in a silly and fun manner was the right direction. El JuicyCabra’s look was a challenge, but while exploring a YouTube rabbit hole on El Chupacabra, and some additional research, the light bulb went off,” said Erik Leach, Brand Marketing Coordinator of New Realm Brewing.

El JuicyCabra is scheduled to officially release at New Realm’s Atlanta and Virginia Beach locations on October 20 and distribution will begin at or around that date as well. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within New Realm’s distribution footprint in Georgia and Virginia.
