Catawba Brewing Releases Small Batch Wild Berry Saison and Friki Tiki Grapefruit IPA

Morganton, NC — Catawba Brewing taps a Small Batch Wild Berry Saison (6.6 percent ABV) on Thursday, August 31, at all locations. The beer is part of the Find Your Pint series, a fundraising initiative of 31 WNC breweries to protect the Blue Ridge Parkway. This refreshing Belgian-style ale showcases the fruity esters of its French Saison yeast strain, amplified by an addition of local blackberries and raspberries during secondary fermentation. Catawba will donate $1 from every pint sold to the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation.

On Friday, September 1, Catawba hosts a “Friki Friday” Release Party for their new Friki Tiki Grapefruit IPA (6.5 percent ABV). This is the third in a new monthly series of fruited IPAs. Brewed in 30-barrel batches at their Morganton production brewery, these specialty IPAs will see a draft-only roll-out throughout Catawba’s 5-state distribution area.
