Two new IPAs will be up for grabs in South Florida this weekend.
First is Bench Buddies 2, the second installment in a collaboration effort between Jupiter, Fla.’s Civil Society Brewing and the Tampa, Fla. outfit Angry Chair Brewing. This double IPA is “angrily hopped with Nugget, Mosaic Lupulin Pellets, Mandarina Bavaria, Idaho 7 and Simcoe Lupulin Pellets” according to a Facebook post.
Bench Buddies 2 is available in 16-ounce cans and clocks in at 8.7 percent ABV.
Next up is Fresh Galaxies. This beer is also canned at 16-ounces, with a 6.2 percent ABV. The beer is a riff on Civil Society’s flagship IPA, Fresh. Galaxies substitutes Galaxy for Columbus, in addition to the Citra hops. The result is “slightly less dank and even more fruit forward.”
Both cans will go on sale Aug. 19 along with co-branded Bench Buddies glassware. Civil Society normally opens for business at 12 p.m. on Saturdays according to the company website.
An email sent to Civil Society seeking additional details was not immediately returned.
