SweetWater Brewing Co. and Telluride Brewing Co. are joining forces to release an ale with a very hot ingredient.
The beer is Torikumi, a 7.5 percent ABV blonde ale brewed with wasabi as well as 2-row, carapils, oat flakes and rye malts that is part of SweetWater’s Dank Tank series, which is made of up beers that are released at random times. The two breweries have collaborated multiple times before, most notably on Cannonball, a cherrywood smoked porter that was released in 2015.
According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Torikumi will be packaged in 16-ounce cans. Emails sent to both breweries for additional information were not immediately returned.
