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

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.
