Deschutes Brewery and Humm Kombucha Collaborate on Humm Zinger

BEND, Ore. — Deschutes Brewery releases Humm Zinger, cultivated with fellow Bend, Oregon, craft innovator Humm Kombucha.

Challenging conventions with this cross-category collaboration, Humm Zinger combines Humm’s tangy grapefruit kombucha with the iconic Cascade hops and Pilsner malt for big citrus flavor with a profound dry hop character. This unique play on a Shandy has an ABV of 4.3% and 12 IBUs, making it a crisp and invigorating toast to summer. Is it summer, yet?

Humm Zinger releases in early May in 12-ounce, 6-pack cans with limited distribution focused in the Pacific Northwest and Virginia. Humm Zinger’s bold flavor will be joined by Deschutes Brewery’s sour series début in cans this summer.
