You won’t need a weapon to enjoy a new canned offering coming from Burial Beer Co.
The beer in question is Gang of Blades, an 8.3 percent ABV double IPA brewed with American malt, barley, wheat and south pacific hops. In addition, the IPA is fermented with “a funky house yeast strain that produces robust tropical esters and helps sharpen the edge.”
The Asheville, N.C.-based brewery released a beer with the same name as a draft-only option earlier this year, but it came in at a slightly lower 8.2 percent ABV as well as a higher 100 IBUs compared to the newer version, which features 100 IBUs.
According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Gang of Blades will be packaged in 16-ounce cans. An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
