Coronado Brewing Co. and Devils Backbone Brewing Co. have released a collaboration beer named Devils Tale.
The 7.5 percent ABV IPA incorporates northern brewer hops for bittering before being dry-hopped with centennial, mosaic and more northern brewer hops. Approximately 34,000 22-ounce bottles of the new IPA were brewed and bottled at the Coronado, Calif. brewery and is the first of two collaborations the two breweries will produce together this year.
“Picture it, Washington D.C., May 2014: Brewers hailing from both sides of the country find each other in a tightly packed room,” says the sales material.
“The share beers, stories, and laughs, forming a friendship that will stretch far beyond SAVOR, the two-day beer-and-food fete that’s brought them together. Skip ahead to fall of the same year and it’s plain to see, 2014 has been a good year for both factions, with Coronado Brewing Company being named Champion Mid-Sized Brewing Co. and Brewmaster at the World Beer Cup and Devils Backbone Brewing Company capturing Mid-Sized Brewery of the Year at the Great American Beer Festival. Such feats are made to be celebrated and, in the brewing industry, beer is how that’s done.”
Devils Tale IPA was released at all three Coronado Brewing locations on Thursday and will be sent to distributors in 20 states on Jan. 15 on draft and in 22-ounce bottles ($8.)
