Maine Beer Co. wants to say thanks to its fans by releasing a 2016 anniversary beer with an appropriate name.
Thank You is the Freeport, Maine-based brewery’s “take on the American wheat ale” and is brewed with locally sourced malted wheat from Blue Ox Malthouse in Lisbon Falls, Maine. This is the second time that Maine Brewing has used the Thank You moniker, after Thank You Allan (6.5 percent ABV) was released in 2012.
According to a post on Maine Beer’s Instagram page, Thank You will be packaged in 500ml bottles that were released at the brewery on June 22. Another post indicates that the beer is shipping to retailers now and should be on retailer’s shelves in the brewery’s distribution network starting this weekend.
Update (July 2, 2016) — This post was updated to include details on the shipping date. It was originally published on June 13, 2016.
