Elysian Brewing has introduced Dank Dust IPA to the brewery’s nationwide sales footprint, a new take on the brand’s flagship Space Dust IPA.
This 8.2% ABV pine-forward India Pale Ale has aromas of grapefruit, mango and orange, the brewery reports. It is brewed with proprietary terpenes, providing the beer with a pungent, dank, citrusy, earthy aroma.
“We took putting the ‘Dank’ into Dust seriously,” says Joe Bisacca, Elysian Brewing’s co-founder. “Nailing the earthy, citrusy, piney, dank aroma took trial and error and we love how Dank Dust turned out. To really make sure our drinkers had the dankest occasion, we hired Action Bronson as our Director of Dank to create snack recipes worthy of pairing with the beer.”
In celebration of this new launch, Elysian has tapped Chef Action Bronson as its first-ever “Director of Dank.” “Dank is a lifestyle,” says Bronson. “I even have a dank dossier, which is why I am Elysian Brewing’s Director of Dank. I worked with the brewery to create two recipes to pair with Dank Dust. The flavors, aromas and creativity that you’ll see in the recipes are inspired by the dankness of the IPA.”
Designed to be recreated at home, the recipes include Sticky Short Ribs and Funkified Funnel Cake, each featuring ingredients readily available at local grocery stores or bodegas.
