Casey Brewing & Blending is releasing a brand new creation just in time for the Great American Beer Festival next month.
That beer is Funky Blender Preserves – Raspberries and Sweet Cherries with Madagascar Vanilla, a 5.5 percent ABV saison conditioned on raspberries, sweet cherries and Madagascar vanilla beans. The new ale is debuting on Oct. 2, which is a day before the official start of this year’s Great American Beer Festival taking place in Denver.
This is the third time that Casey has bottled a fruited saison brewed with vanilla beans, following Funky Blender Preserves – Apricot & Vanilla and East Bank Cherry & Vanilla.
As with all of Casey’s beer releases, interested parties must purchase a ticket for a tour at the brewery in order to purchase bottles.
According to a post on Casey’s Instagram page, Funky Blender Preserves – Raspberries & Sweet Cherries with Madagascar Vanilla Beans is packaged in 750ml bottles and will be available to attendees of the brewery’s tours from Oct. 2 through Oct. 6 with a two bottle per person purchase limit.
