Wild Leap Brew Co. Closes Out 2018 with Three Limited Releases

WildLeapAmericanBlackberryWild Leap Brew Co. (LaGrange, Georgia) has officially announced that will introduce three new Limited Releases this holiday season: American Blackberry Ale, Alpha Abstraction Double IPA – Volume 4, and Solid Ground Cold Brew Coffee Stout.

Released in late November to kick off Wild Leap’s end-of-the-year barrage, American Blackberry is a Fruit Beer/Blackberry Ale “designed to taste like a piece of homemade blackberry pie.”  The brewery pulled this off by fermenting the beer with “1,400 pounds of blackberries” to create “a distinct freshness paired with rich cinnamon.” (ABV – 6.5%, IBUs – 20)

“The crisp weather and holiday spirit that surrounds this season influenced us to brew a beer that has a familiar and cozy feel,” explains Rob Goldstein, co-founder of Wild Leap. “It reminds you of the flavors of home, while helping you survive it.”

Next up, we have the latest release in Wild Leap’s wildly-popular Alpha Abstraction Series of juicy, double dry-hopped India Pale Ales.  Alpha Abstraction- Vol. 4 is the first of the series to feature Denali hops and comes in at 8% ABV and 35 IBUs.

“For the Alpha series, we search for hop varieties that are fruity and juicy,” explains Head Brewer, Chris Elliott. “Denali has citrus, pineapple, and pine characteristics that work well with this beer, and the hop is high in essential oils so you can expect a bigger and bolder aroma compared to other hop varieties.”

The final Wild Leap release of 2018 will be Solid Ground, a Cold Brew Coffee Stout “fermented with fresh Colombian coffee brewed right in the Wild Leap brewhouse, and roasted malts.”  Weighing in at a big and toasty 8.8% ABV, Solid Ground is “smooth and balanced and is an ideal refreshment beside a big roaring fire on a cold winter day.”

American Blackberry is available now and Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 4 and Solid Ground will both debut on December 7 at a Double Release Party hosted by Wild Leap Brew Co.  All three offerings will be available as long as supplies last in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in and around the Atlanta, LaGrange, Newnan, Peachtree City, Columbus, Athens, Gainesville and Augusta areas of Georgia. Prost!

Wild Leap Brew Co. Set to Release American Cherry Pie Ale

WL_IndividPage_AmericanCherryWild Leap Brew Co. (LaGrange, Georgia) has officially announced that it will soon begin the “extremely limited release” of American Cherry, a cherry pie-inspired ale.

Meant to mimic the comforting flavors found in a slice of homemade cherry pie, American Cherry is brewed with “fermented sweet and tart cherries and cinnamon” to result in a Fruit Beer that “is slightly tart, has a well-balanced malt profile and a mild bitterness.” Coming in at 6.5% ABV, American Cherry promises to be “the perfect choice for the cool fall nights” ahead.

“We wanted a fuller-bodied fruited ale suited for the weather change,” said Head Brewer, Chris Elliott. “Since we recently debuted a stout and an IPA, this was a great way to enhance our current lineup.”

 

“Homemade cherry pie is an American classic, so we decided to give it some prominence in the craft beer world,” shared Elliott. “The complex malt bill mimics pie crust flavors and the combination of Tart Cherries and Sweet Dark Cherries tastes great with cinnamon. These flavors really work together.”

American Cherry will officially roll out “before the end of the month” and hang around only as long as supplies last.  You can expect to find this Limited Release at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in and around the Atlanta, LaGrange, Newnan, Peachtree City, Columbus, Athens, Gainesville, and Augusta areas of Georgia. Prost!

Wild Leap Brew Co. Hits October with Two Limited Release Beers

WildLeapLogo.pngWild Leap Brew Co. (LaGrange, Georgia) has officially announced that Rollin’ Deep Cinnamon Roll Stout and the third volume in its incredibly popular Alpha Abstraction Double IPA series will both debut during the second week of October 2018.

Arriving as Wild Leap’s first canned stout, Rollin’ Deep is a cinnamon roll-inspired treat “brewed with rich caramel and chocolate malts and cinnamon.” Clocking in at a warming 8.5% ABV, Rollin’ Deep boasts a “straight-from-the-food-court, sticky bun flavor” that will pair beautifully with the “cooler autumn days” ahead.

“With fall approaching, we wanted a beer that was perfect for football games and bonfires,” said co-founder and CEO Anthony Rodriguez. “We’ve always served a variety of stouts in our tap room, but this one was way too good to keep to ourselves.”

If sweet Pastry Stouts are not your thing, fear not because Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 3 will be released alongside Rollin’ Deep to satisfy all the hop fiends out there.  This Double India Pale Ale employs the use of Mosaic hops – the first of the Alpha Abstraction Series to do so – to “provide a nice mix or fresh mango, citrus, and very complex tropical aromas.” Although Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 3 “has a different flavor profile from anything [Wild Leap has] brewed before”, this “big, juicy, balanced Double IPA” (8% ABV) will most assuredly still appeal to “connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike.”

Rollin’ Deep and Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 3 will launch at a Double Release Party at Wild Leap Brew Co. on October 12 and will also enter distribution at or around that date.  You can expect to find these two Limited Release offerings available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in and around the Atlanta, LaGrange, Newnan, Peachtree City, Columbus, Athens, Gainesville, and Augusta areas of Georgia.  Prost!

Alpha Abstraction – Vol. 2 will officially debut at a Release Party at Wild Leap Brew Co. on Friday, August 3 and will enter distribution at or around that date.  You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within Wild Leap’s distribution area in Georgia.  Prost!
