Release notes: Slow Ride Session IPA rolls into town

Time seems to pass way too quickly these days. I mean, it’s already 2015. We’re just as close to 2030 as we are to 2000. Weird, right?

Here at the brewery, we don’t really stop to smell the roses, because that involves stopping, and stopping means we’re not making beer. Instead, we like to slow things down…real slow. In that spirit, let me introduce you to our new year-round beer, Slow Ride Session IPA.


If you’ve been to one of our Tour de Fat events, you probably get the story behind the beer’s name. The slow ride competition, a regular feature at the festival, challenges fans to ride as slow as possible to the finish line—savor each moment of cosmic balance, so to speak. With the release of this new hoppy beer, we’re expanding on that: We’re hoping you’ll slow down the day by cracking open a few session IPAs with friends. If you have a couch bike to lounge on, even better. That’s right, we built a couch bike, because good ideas happen when you’re taking things slow.


So what exactly is Slow Ride Session IPA? For starters, it’s an easy-drinking session beer clocking in at just 4.5% ABV, which means you won’t reach your limit after just one, so take your time and enjoy a few. It’s also packed with the likes of Mosaic and Nelson Sauvin (similar to Rampant), so you can bet on a sensory overload of brilliant tropical fruit. We actually designed a new dry-hopping technique just for this beer, which pulls out a ton of hop character without adding too much bitterness. In other words, expect big aroma, big flavor, but not a huge bitter bite.


So go have a session with Slow Ride and let us know what you think.


Ready, set, go slow — Chris
