Schlafly Beer (St. Louis, Missouri) has officially announced that it will release Hoptic Visions, a hop-centric Mixed 12-pack of 12 oz. bottles, in mid-March 2020.
Carefully curated with the intention to show that a beer does not necessarily have to be an IPA to be “hoppy,” the Hoptic Visions Sampler Pack includes the following three “hop-forward favorites from Schlafly’s portfolio as well as a new experimental brew,” Hazy Pineapple IPA (descriptions sourced directly from the brewery’s press release):
- India Pale Ale – With a lower ABV than traditional IPAs, Schlafly’s year-round take on the style offers a sessional beer for both hopheads and newcomers alike. The Schlafly IPA features a hop blend to enhance tropical flavors and subtle notes of citrus. ABV – 5%
- Hoppy Wheat Ale – Wheat brings a touch of haze with a hint of sweetness and combines with Mosaic and Amarillo hops that lend to abundant citrus flavor and aroma. ABV – 5%
- India Pale Lager – Just because it’s a lager doesn’t mean it can’t feature strong hop flavors. Dry-hopped with Citra hops, India Pale Lager offers a crisp finish and a kick of tropical character. ABV – 5.5%
- Hazy Pineapple IPA – This IPA is a trifecta of haze, hope and fruit. Pounds of experimental hops and pineapple refract off one another to create a juicy and golden brew with a long-lasting finish. ABV – 4.5%
**The Hoptic Visions Sampler Pack includes 3 12 oz. bottles of each beer listed above**
“The sampler pack showcases the versatility of hop-forward beers,” explains Schlafly’s Founding Brewer Stephen Hale. “Many think just of IPAs when it comes to hoppy beers, but we wanted to showcase how hops can enhance different styles as well as add different flavor profiles. These beers highlight everything from fruity and juicy hops to our sessionable IPA.”
The Hoptic Visions Sampler Pack is rolling out now and will be available as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this special Mixed 12-Pack at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Missouri, Tennessee and throughout the rest of Schlafly’s distribution footprint. Prost!
