Ranger Creek Creates Special Brew for San Antonio Beer Festival

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Beer lovers rejoice! One of San Antonio’s largest breweries has collaborated with the San Antonio Beer Festival to brew a special beer for the 2017 event. Ranger Creek’s Pina CoLager is a unique, German-style lager brewed with the addition of pineapple and coconut. Only one batch of this refreshing, delicious beer was made. It’s an extremely limited release that will be available at the 2017 San Antonio Beer Festival on Saturday, October 21st.

The ingredients for Pina CoLager were inspired by the classic pina colada cocktail. Holland Lawrence , Ranger Creek’s Head Brewer, came up with the idea for the beer and brewed it. The San Antonio Beer Festival team selected Pina CoLager as their top pick among several creative beer ideas created by Lawrence.

Ranger Creek held the first pre-festival tapping for SABF Pina CoLager at their brewery on Saturday, October 8. More special tappings will be held at craft-centric retailers across San Antonio leading up to San Antonio Beer Festival. San Antonio Beer Festival made a special souvenir glass for the beer that will be available in limited quantities at the tappings. Discounted tickets to San Antonio Beer Festival will also be available at several of the events.

About Ranger Creek

Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling is a combined brewery/distillery handcrafting beer and bourbon in San Antonio, TX one batch at a time. They are the first modern microbrewery in San Antonio, one of a few combined brewery/distilleries in the U.S., and the only combined operation making both beer and bourbon. They focus on interesting recipes and use local ingredients from the state of Texas as much as possible. The company uses much of the same equipment to make both beer and bourbon, which is possible because in order to make bourbon, beer must be made first. They encourage visitors to San Antonio to sign up for one of their regularly scheduled tours and come by for a visit.
