Sonoma Springs Brewing Company Releases HazyCali and Conan’s Haze in 16 oz. Cans

SONOMA, CA – Sonoma Springs Brewing Company is proud to announce the release of its newest HazyCali and Conan’s Haze Northeast inspired IPA in 16oz cans for wholesale and retail customers. The HazyCali, first brewed in early 2017, is one of 11 new beers released this year alone, and sold out in just minutes to distribution locations. This second run of the beer was just as popular. Friday was Sonoma Springs’ first release of Conan’s Haze, and has been very well received by craft beer lovers around the Bay Area.

“This is something we’ve been working towards for years,” said Derek Drennan, Managing Partner. “We’ve been wanting to can these unique beers for quite some time, and it was a no-brainer to do a second run of the HaziCali. We want to make our beers available to more and more craft beer drinkers, so this is a special time for us.”

A Northeast inspired IPA, the HazyCaliFrajilisticHoppyaladocious is brewed with over 4 lbs. of Crystal, Amarillo, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops per barrel resulting in 50 IBU. With a heavy oat and wheat base, this beer tastes like ruby red grapefruit juice and has a super smooth mouth feel at 7.5% ABV. No grapefruits were harmed in the making of this beer!

Also a Northeast inspired IPA, Conan’s Haze was named after the Vermont Ale yeast strain used int he beer. Conan’s Haze combines two of our favorite hops, Mosaic and Simocoe, with healthy doses of Pilsen malt, flaked oats and barley. This NE style I PA carries Barbarian bold tangerine, grapefruit, passion fruit and lychee flavors along with an approachable hop finish.

Aside from these speciality release beers, Sonoma Springs always has the Kolsch, which also serves as the base for some of their barrel aged sour beers, as well as the Subliminal Gold IPA, in the 16oz cans.

“We take pride in our ingredients that are locally-sourced, our innovative and creative use of different hops, and the freshness of our beers” said Tim Goeppinger, founder and brew master. “A lot of people are used to seeing good beer in cans. After a fresh keg, it’s the second best package for your beer. This now allows customers to come into the taproom and take a 4 pack home with them, or find in a store in the area to enjoy.”

The 16oz cans are available for purchase in the taproom, and at locations around the Bay Area and Northern California. See the interactive map of beer locations here:
