Weyerbacher Brewing Co. is using one of its beers to give animals another chance.
According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the Easton, Pa.-based brewery will be bottling Last Chance IPA with Apricots, a 5.9 percent ABV IPA brewed with Cascade, centennial, Columbus and Simcoe hops as well as 15 pounds of fresh apricots per barrel. The new beer is based on Weyerbacher’s Last Chance IPA (5.9 percent ABV) and was first released as a draft-only option last year.
As the name suggests, Weyerbacher donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of both Last Chance IPA and Last Chance IPA with Apricots to small, local animal rescue organizations around the country.
Last Chance IPA with Apricots will be packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles.
An email sent to the brewery for release and distribution information was not immediately returned.
