Brewski x Cycle 50 States Of Freedom

Brewery: Brewski x Cycle Brewing
Country: Sweden
ABV: 4%
Style: German Berliner Weisse
Other Notes: Berliner Weisse with Lime. Only real fruit inside!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) When our dear beloved friends from Cycle – St. Pete, Murcia – stepped into our brewery for the first time, we knew that this relationship would turn into magical and wonderful beers in a heartbeat. Together we poured the Florida sun, the breath of Swedish nature and a shitload of lime into this bottle. The result is a very refreshing and smooth brew with hints of freedom, motorized scooters and bald eagles, all perfectly balanced for you to enjoy on a warm summer day.

Brewski Candy Queen

Brewery: Brewski
Country: Sweden
ABV: 4.7%
Style: German Berliner Weisse
Other Notes: Berliner Weisse Passionfruit. Only real fruit inside!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) They say behind every great man is a great woman. While that might be true in some cases, we firmly believe that women shouldn’t have to be behind anyone in order to achieve anything, as greatness is a result of passion(fruit), not chromosomes or genitalia. So feel free to drink like a girl, brew like a girl, or rule a queendom like a girl, because in the end, we are all equal.

Brewski Mystery Monster

Brewery: Brewski
Country: Sweden
ABV: 6%
Style: American IPL
Other Notes: India Style Lager. Keep it real, no additives inside!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) He has light in his eyes. Like someone in disguise. He isn’t tall but wide, definitely not easy to hide. He’s got dried out lips, and normal finger tips. He got black hair in his nose and he lacks a fire hose. He got veins on his thigh, not your normal beer belly type of guy. He is stylish and new, and clearly not overdue. A bit India, but not pale, and absolutely no ale. He got a familiar taste, this mystery monster is not a waste.
