Gunwhale Ales Double Can Release! - Costa Mesa
Why release one new brew when you can do two (See what we did there?)! Our friends at Gunwhale went and did a Hazy DIPA collaboration with the Noble Ale Works crew known as No Shower Happy Hour (8.3% ABV). A blend of six different hops, it's being described as juicy and smooth. In addition, Hawaiian Sling is their funky and tropical Wild IPA (6.1% ABV) named after a spearfishing device. Sling is a blend of both Mosaic and Motueka hops. Both will be available for purchase beginning Saturday at 9:30 a.m. in $22 and $20 4-packs, respectively. Brekkie options and merch from Noble and Beer Savage reps will be on hand, so make a morning of it. 2960 Randolph Ave, Unit A, (949) 239-9074; www.gunwhaleales.com.
