Turlock, CA — This week Dust Bowl Brewing Co. completed the rollout of its Vintage Series with the release of Naked Twister Double Red IPA (8.9% ABV/80 IBU). The latest addition to the growing brewery’s portfolio, Naked Twister features a multitude of hops and a healthy dose of British and German specialty malts, which create a big, red, hoppy Imperial Red IPA. Juicy hop aromas and flavors of citrus and tropical fruit are balanced by a medium dry sweetness just enough to round out the assertive bitter finish.
The Vintage Series is comprised of four limited production brews packaged in 22oz. bottles. The branding on the series showcases water color iterations of clever names that (mostly) play into the Company’s Great Depression era roots. Others in the series include Canal Surfer Grapefruit IPA, 10 Lizzy Scotch Ale and Public Enemy Baltic Porter.
“We’re excited to release Naked Twister. It’s a great Double Red IPA that enhances our offering to both distributors and the discerning craft beer drinker,” shares Brett Tate, founder/owner, Dust Bowl Brewing Co. “It completes the launch of our limited release Vintage Series, which we started rolling out about a year ago. As we continue to grow and take a more strategic approach to our production and branding, it’s satisfying to see this come to fruition. The name and branding are really catchy, which has become essential in the competitive craft beer industry.”
To celebrate the launch, local fans are being treated to a release event at Dust Bowl Brewing Co.’s new Brewery Taproom on March 11 from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. Guests will have the rare opportunity to hang with the brew crew and be the first to purchase Naked Twister at a discounted price of $6/bottle through March 12.
