SAN FRANCISCO – Fort Point Beer Company announced today the release of Moon Phase, a Belgian-Style Quadrupel Ale, aged in bourbon barrels. A unique combination of smoky bourbon and dry, malted sweetness, Moon Phase is the first release in Fort Point’s new 22 ounce bottle packaging.
Building upon the brewery’s successful can launch in November 2015 and ongoing draft production, Fort Point has expanded its packaging to include larger-format bottles, to be released throughout this year.
“We are excited to grow the Fort Point brand” said co-founder, Justin Catalana. “The 22 ounce bottles allow us to expand our packaging for specialty beers, those that don’t synergize with our existing 12 ounce can styles.”
Moon Phase, the first of these small-batch and limited-release bottles, was created in collaboration with Healthy Spirits, one of the Bay Area’s preeminent bottle shops.
Moon Phase will be available at Healthy Spirits’ three locations, at Fort Point’s Ferry Building kiosk, and on draft in limited quantities across the Bay Area.
Fort Point worked with San Francisco design firm Manual to create the new packaging.
