We’re not pullin’ a fast one on ya this Friday the 13th, but the bottling line has been killin’ it this week, pumping out our new Crank Tank brew – check out pics here. This lip smakin’ Helles lager (yeah we said lager) is a brew that’ll keep your chains running smooth at 5.8% ABV.
To give y’all some back story, Freddy made a visit to Camp Twin Lakes a few years ago, and learned about the great work they were doing for children facing serious illnesses, disabilities and other life challenges. What better way to show support than doing what we do best — brewing a beer for the cause!
We cranked down the fermentation temperatures to a chilly 11-degrees Celsius and lingered in the lagering process on this sucker for an extra crisp and refreshing finish. Typical of traditional Munich style lagers, Crank Tank is bright and balanced, quaffable after any long ride.
Folks, mark your calendar ‘cause six-packs are hitting shelves and kegs are rollin’ out on draft throughout the state of Georgia on Monday, Sept. 16, or peddle your way over to the brewery to sip on a freshie at our tours beginning Wednesday, Sept. 18. Drink ’em for the kiddos!
Speakin’ of peddling for a reason, we’re inviting bike and beer fans alike to join us on Team SweetWater at Spin For Kids bike ride and fundraiser benefiting Camp Twin Lakes this Oct. 19-20. Each year we pump a big fat check full of proceeds from Team SweetWater (and Crank Tank) straight back to Camp Twin Lakes. Join our team here.
