A collaboration between Oskar Blues Brewery and the Colorado band The String Cheese Incident will now be available in cans for the first time.
SCIPA is a 6.5 percent ABV “brut-inspired” IPA brewed with Citra, Enigma Mosaic, Simcoe and Strata hops as well as Root Shoot Pale Genie Malt, German Pilsner Malt, Vienna and toasted flaked rice. The ale was originally released in July as a draft-only option that was poured a select band performance dates and Oskar Blues taprooms in both Boulder and Longmont.
“I wanted something in a progressive style that was crisp and not too sweet – something for pouring and enjoying at amphitheaters, music festivals and camping,” said band keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth in a press release. “We wanted to support a Colorado brewer. Keeping it local is important to us.”
According to Oskar Blues, the newest incarnation of SCIPA will be sold on draft and in four-packs of 16-ounce cans at Oskar Blues taprooms and at select The String Cheese Incident’s upcoming tour dates, which can be found here.
