Every so often, you want to buy a beer merely because of the amazing can art. This week, I have found the perfect brew that would make my socially distanced weekend just a little better. And it was gone in a flash as well – sales started at 10pm on the 19th and they were gone by the morning!
The beer in question? Shubrew’s Magic Mushroom: Pandemic Special ! This 12% Triple IPA (perfect for those of us who celebrate #TIPAthursday – if you know, you know) is the perfect brew to kick off the weekend. Featuring vic secret and enigma hops, this brew is the epitome of a dank IPA. Also, the can art. It’s adorable. I love anything with a massive ABV, so I need this brew. However, it sold out! Preorders started at 10pm last night and they were sold out by the morning! Congrats, Shubrew! Readers – can anyone hook me up with a can? Ya girl needs it.
However, don’t sleep on the other choices that ShuBrew is offering right now. They’ve got tons of goodies to stock up on prior to your Quarantined Thanksgiving. There’s the Smooshie Cran-Apple Pie – a 6% fruited sour perfect suited to this week’s holiday. Loaded with apples, cranberries, vanilla, pie crust and lactose, this is literally the alcoholic version of a Thanksgiving pie. The perfect post-meal dessert? I think so.
They make the coolest video game themed beers. Currently, they’ve got the Up Up Down Down Left Right Pixelated IPA. A hazeboi coming in at 6.8%, this medium bodied brew has some nice lemongrass notes, with pine resin and lime being present as well. Hopped with Dr. Rudi, Hallertau Blanc, Waimea, and Idaho 7 hops, this is perfect for my IPA lovers out there.
I’ve got one last tidbit of information for my readers for the week as well. Shout out to all of my Pastry fans out there – there’s a Shunami coming next week. The Pecan Pie edition of this stout series will be released in a limited edition next week! Stay tuned to Shubrew’s social media and weekly newsletter for more!
