BRADENTON, FL — Earlier this month, Darwin Brewing Company released the two newest editions of its Big Deal small batch series. Exclusive to the eight Florida Lucky’s Market locations, Darwin Brewing’s Big Deal is a line of small-batch, big flavor specialty bombers and cans. Big Deal Double IPA and Big Deal Lager are respectively the second and third releases in the series, following the popular Big Deal Chocolate Cherry Imperial Stout released earlier this year.
Big Deal DIPA, is packed with hoppy complexity, brewed with copious amounts of El Dorado and Centennial hops, and balanced by deep malt undertones. Take in the summery aromas of pear, watermelon, and citrus before sitting back and sipping this big-time DIPA, available in 22oz bomber bottles. Big Deal Lager is a crisp, smooth German-style lager, perfectly refreshing for days in the Florida sun. Hop varietals from Australia and New Zealand pack subtle fruit notes while the beer achieves balance and medium body from the bready German malts. Big Deal Lager is available in 6 packs of 12oz cans.
Brewmaster Jorge Rosabal remarks, “Our team was excited to create special editions of two of our very favorite beers just for Lucky’s Markets. We look forward to developing the fall selection of Big Deal releases which will continue to celebrate the spirit of Lucky’s and local collaboration!”
As a company, DBC prioritizes working with other local businesses through unique collaboration brews, special events, and strategic partnerships emphasizing eating (and drinking) locally. Darwin sources local ingredients and is proud to be a staple of the Florida brewing scene. We encourage all chefs and brewers, professionally and at home, to integrate our culinary-inspired ales and lagers into their kitchens and menus.
