Green Man's The Rainmaker Returns in a New Format

The North Carolina brewery's hottest Double IPA debuts in 4-packs of 12-ounce bottles.

Green Man Brewery unveiled a new packaging format for one of its more popular beers today. The Rainmaker Double IPA, previously available only in 750-mL large bottles, will now be available in 4-packs of 12-ounce bottles.

The Rainmaker features an impressive array of hop varietals, and a rich malt flavor backs up the hoppy bitterness. It was featured as #36 on our list of the Top 41 IPAs we've reviewed.

The beer will return to shelves starting in April. 

Here is the release from Green Man:

Asheville, NC - March 28, 2016 - Hopheads rejoice!  Green Man’s The Rainmaker Double IPA returns in April.  Beer aficionados prize this highly sought-after, dank beer that’s revered for its complex blend of hop flavors and dangerously smooth drinkability. Clocking in at 9.3% ABV, this behemoth is heavily dry-hopped and bursting with Columbus, Simcoe, Citra, and Chinook hops.

The Rainmaker has received multiple accolades from several beer publications. It scored a 94 rating in Beer Connoisseur Magazine. The editors noted, “..this wonderfully smooth and easy-drinking Double IPA manages to stand out from the pack.”  One of craft beer’s most notable personalities, Charlie Papazian, praised The Rainmaker in All About Beer Magazine as having, “well-balanced bitterness doesn’t attack, but rather blends in with malt complexity and hop flavors and aroma.”  Beer marketing pioneer Charles Finkel described it as “...a masterful balance of cereal and spice, with a lasting ‘come back for more’ finish.” An incredible overall score of 98 makes it one of the highest reviewed beers on ratebeer.com

Due to popular demand, it will be available this year in a more functional 4-pack of 12 oz bottles. Look out for it at select retailers that carry great beer throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
