The newest Tired Hands Brewing Co. beers released in cans include a new collaboration and an IPA that was formally released on-draft.
The new beer to be canned by the Ardmore, Pa.-based brewery is Dystopian Forest, but it’s Okay, a “foraged IPA” brewed with wheat, oats, Pennsylvania spruce tips, lilac, spicebush and Texas false pennyroyal as well as Amarillo, Citra and Mosaic hops. The IPA was brewed at Tired Hands’ Fermentaria in Ardmore, Pa. on May 2, in collaboration with Austin-based Jester King Brewery.
The second beer to be sold is Calamansi Milkshake IPA, a 7.2 percent ABV IPA brewed with oats, lactose sugar and wheat flour, hopped “intensely” with Citra and Mosaic hops and then conditioned on Madagascar vanilla beans and a “copious amount” of calamansi purée. Calamansi, otherwise known as “golden lime,” is a lime-like fruit that is cultivated in Asia as well as Florida and other states in the U.S.
There have been multiple releases in Tired Hands’ Milkshake Series of IPAs, all of which have been brewed in collaboration with or had input from the Swedish brewery, Omnipollo.
According to a post on Tired Hands’ Instagram page, both beers will go on sale at the Fermentaria starting at 5 p.m.
