LONGMONT, Colo. – Take a vacation in a can! Left Hand Brewing Company, industry pioneers in Nitro beer styles and technology, is debuting a new Nitro seasonal, Gettin’ Tiki With It. This Piña Colada Wheat Ale is a Nitro passport to paradise, bursting with pineapple and coconut. Inspired by the quintessential vacation cocktail, Gettin’ Tiki With It sails in at 7.5% ABV. Expect to see this new beer on shelves starting in May.
“Our brewing team continues to push the boundaries of Nitro beer with cocktail-inspired recipes,” said Jill Preston, Left Hand’s Director of Marketing. “After the success of White Russian Nitro last fall, our brewers got together and experimented further. The goal was to create a fruit-forward and refreshing spring and summer seasonal that captured the flavors of an island getaway.”
Gettin’ Tiki With It is packed with pineapple and coconut. Sabro hops perfectly complement those tropical fruit flavors and the addition of lactose accentuates the super smooth Nitro mouthfeel. “It’s the perfect tropical treat,” said Preston.
To celebrate the debut of their newest beer while also prioritizing health & safety, Left Hand is taking the release party on-line. “Join our virtual vacation!” said Natalie Gula, Left Hand’s Tasting Room General Manager. “Our Tiki Party will be livestreamed from the Left Hand Brewing Facebook page, featuring guest appearances by Co-Founder & President Eric Wallace as well as the brewers behind this luxurious Nitro ale.”
The virtual release party will be held on Friday, May 8 at 4:30pm MST. “We’re celebrating together once Gettin’ Tiki With It begins to hit shelves across the country,” said Gula. “We want our fans to have the time to safely procure a can and then come and escape with us!” Click here for more information and event updates.
