Fruit Fun at Catawba: Mango & Apricot Releases

Two New Catawba Brews Released

Catawba Brewing releases two new Small Batch beers this week. First, a Mango IPA (6.5 percent ABV) will be tapped on Thursday, June 15, at all Catawba locations. This is the final test batch in a new series of fruited IPAs that will go into production next month under the name, “Friki Tiki.” Brewed with flaked wheat in the mash, a tropical hop profile (Simcoe and Citra) was selected to complement a huge addition of real Florida mango puree.

Friday, June 16, Catawba releases an Apricot Grisette (4.9 percent ABV), available exclusively in their tasting rooms. This Belgian-style session ale is a spinoff from a Peach Grisette, released earlier this spring, which was one of Catawba’s fastest-selling beers from their Small Batch Program. This thirst-quenching golden ale showcases the fruity esters of its French Saison yeast strain, amplified by an addition of fresh apricots during secondary fermentation.

All left me with with varying degrees of side-effects, which somehow combined to make me a good fit to be the editor/video producer of the828.com.
