Petoskey Brewing Co. Expands its Canned Lineup

Petoskey, MI — Petoskey Brewing Company will add two additional brews to their can line-up this summer. Hopsessed Double I.P.A. and Sparkle American Lager will be available in June to existing markets in the 16oz./ 4-pack format.

These two new brews will compliment the brewery’s current can offering of Mind’s Eye PA (IPA), North 45 Amber Ale and Horny Monk Belgian Style Ale. Hopsessed is a mouth-exploding double I.P.A. that starts with the unique aroma provided by Simcoe hops.

Its bitterness is slightly mellowed with caramel flavors imparted by the copious quantities of malted barley utilized for this brew. Hopsessed will be a limited-production seasonal offering. Sparkle American Lager is our homage to the original Sparkle brewed by the Petoskey Brewing Company from 1898 until 1915. Wheat and four special malts combine with three different types of hops. Like the original, Sparkle is made from pure artesian spring water to create a super-clean easy drinking beer. Sparkle will be available year-around.
