Green Flash Brewing Company, in partnership with Jameson Irish Whiskey, has announced the summer release of Celtic Sun IPA, a beer made to pair with Jameson Caskmates IPA edition.
Celtic Sun IPA is the first Jameson collaboration with a U.S. craft brewer to create a non-barrel aged beer to be sipped alongside Jameson Caskmates IPA whiskey. Its recipe was designed by the Green Flash brewing team to complement the floral citrus nose, and green apple light citrus tasting notes, found in Jameson Caskmates IPA.
Additionally, the Celtic Sun IPA packaging incorporates design elements from both the Caskmates IPA label and the new Green Flash illustrative design.
“Consumers today enjoy a wide variety of beverage choices, even in a single setting,” says Green Flash Brewmaster Erik Jensen. “Our new beer was brewed to offer a unique drinking ritual with whiskey that we’re referring to as the ‘Perfect Irish Complement.’ We’re encouraging everyone to alternate sips of Celtic Sun IPA with Caskmates IPA whiskey to taste how these products truly complement one another. No boilermakers here!”
Celtic Sun IPA will be available in six-pack 12-oz. bottles at limited retailers starting July 1 through August 31. It also can be found using the Green Flash Beer Finder at www.greenflashbrew.com/find-beer.
