Milwaukee, Wisconsin — Just in time for Memorial Day, Gathering Place Brewing is adding four new beers in cans, increasing its canned offerings to 14 beers. The new beers, available in 4-packs of 16 oz cans, will be released on Saturday, May 23 from 2-6 p.m. in the taproom along with a fresh batch of Arrivederci Roma Italian Pils.
The four new beers in cans include #shoehaze Oat Pale Ale, an established crowd favorite, and three beers made for the first time: a Helles Lager, a Milk Porter, and a Coffee Pale Ale.
Asked why Gathering Place opted to release these specific beers, Joe Yeado, Gathering Place’s founder explains, “COVID-19 has presented challenges, but we have to continue innovating and creating new beers and flavors to keep our customers satisfied. These new beers are unique and flavorful in their own right and will be perfect as we transition to warmer weather.”
The demand for unique and flavorful beers like these is strong. “We first brewed #shoehaze last spring and it sold out in a few weeks,” recalls Yeado. “We made another batch last summer and it was also gone in weeks. It’s a fantastically flavorful, easy-drinking beer and we wanted to bring it back in cans for the summertime.”
More about the beers:
#shoehaze (4.6% ABV/ 30 IBU), an Oat Pale Ale with an overwhelming volume of El Dorado & Cascade hops, a mild bitterness obscured by the addition of flaked oats, and a lush distortion of dryness creates an ethereal mixture of hops, malt, yeast, and water.
Slightly Askew (4.6% ABV/ 18 IBU), an Unfiltered Helles Lager with flavors of toasted bread and hints of citrus and red berries from the Saphir hops resulting in a pleasing malty finish.
Coffee Pale Ale (5.4% ABV/ 48 IBU), a Pale Ale with Coffee that’s generously dry-hopped with El Dorado hops giving tropical and stone fruits aromas. Complemented by gingerbread sweetness and strawberry notes from Muungano coffee from our friends at Kickapoo Coffee.
180 Gram Vinyl (4.9% ABV/ 20 IBU), a Porter brewed with lactose has the soft intricacies of a Milk Stout with the chocolate, roasty, and subtle fruit flavors of an American Porter.
Arrivederci Roma (5.2% ABV/ 32 IBU), an Italian Pilsner with a soft, pillowy feel that has pleasing aromas of spice and lemon zest complemented by a moderate bitterness and maltiness.
While #shoehaze and Arrivederci Roma will be available at the brewery and through its distribution network, Slightly Askew, Coffee Pale Ale, and 180 Gram Vinyl will only be available in limited quantities from the brewery.
