There is another collaboration in the works, this time combining the talents of Cigar City Brewing and Knee Deep Brewing Co. of Auburn, Calif.
The resulting beer is named Continental Drift, a 7.5 percent ABV “west coast-style” IPA that incorporates hops processed in four different ways in order to “create more hop complexity”: extract, lupulin powder, pellets and whole leaf. The beer is being brewed and bottled at Cigar City in Tampa, Fla.
According to a label filed the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Continental Drift will be packaged in 750ml bottles. An email sent to both breweries for additional information was not immediately returned.
