Submitted by the Event Organizer
21st Amendment Brewery and lauded family-owned hop farm CLS Farms join forces to create a limited-edition Double IPA brewed with innovative hops grown in the premier hop region of Yakima Valley in Washington State.
Introducing Close Encounters of a Hop Kind! This 8.5% ABV Double IPA transports beer drinkers far beyond typical Double IPAs with CLS Farms’ extraterrestrial proprietary hop varieties: El Dorado®, Zappa®, and the brand new, never before used CLS X-14. Handcrafted out of a love for experimental hops, Close Encounters of a Hop Kind is a deceptively easy-drinking DIPA.
Join 21st Amendment Brewery, CLS Farms and some extraterrestrials on Thursday, June 23 from 5pm – 8pm to enjoy a special evening of:
Beer Tasting with 21st Amendment Brewmaster, Shaun O’Sullivan, to learn more about Close Encounters of a Hop Kind, with its light haze and deep straw color that has flavor and aroma bursts of tropical, stone fruit, lime, melon, and purple (that’s right, purple.)
Hop Domination with CLS Farms, where you’ll get the chance to smell some hops, learn about the various hop varieties, and what makes this new experimental hop, CLS X-14, so special (don’t worry, there will not be a quiz after.)
Food Get your taste buds ready! The 21st Amendment kitchen is cooking up something special for you with a limited time only menu, exclusively for Close Encounters of a Hop Kind – along with some guest dessert vendors! Mmmm…
Exclusive Merch Don’t miss out on the chance to get the limited time only 21st Amendment and CLS Farms t-shirt, featuring splashes of color and a beer drinking extra terrestrial. This shirt will only be available for purchase at the party.
Costumes Encouraged Have an amazing alien costume lying around that you’ve always wanted to wear outside of Halloween? Break that thing out, this is your time to shine!
Photo Booth You’ll experience a Close Encounter during the evening, but don’t worry, you’ll be able to capture it all on camera with our alien ready backdrop.
Alien Sightings Did you really think we could forget the alien movies? No way. There will be vintage campy alien movies showing throughout the taproom during the whole event, making for a real Close Encounter.
Are you excited yet? We are!
This event will be held on earth at 21st Amendment Brewery taproom in San Leandro, Calif., from 5pm to 8pm.
