Santa Monica Brew Works 50 Year Storm Juicy Double IPA Returns

Santa Monica Brew Works in Los Angeles, California has announced the return of 50 Year Storm Juicy Double IPA. More details are below.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Wise Man Brewing is excited to announce plans to widen the availability of their award winning, self-distributed craft beers in the Charlotte Market starting in 2020 with the addition of a Charlotte Account Manager.

“We have known the Charlotte market, with its incredible craft beer culture, would be our next area for expansion” says Scott McWhorter, Director of Sales & Distribution with Wise Man Brewing.  Since the fall of 2018, Wise Man has been in limited distribution in the area, working to make connections and understand the market in preparation for an upcoming 75% capacity increase in their brewery.  “What we’ve found is a market that is hungry for new styles but still holds reverence for historical, classic styles, and that fits nicely with our philosophy as a brewery.”  Wise Man has seen first-hand the benefit of adding dedicated market representatives through the addition of a Triangle Account Representative back in May.  “Our goal is to have our representatives to be part of the craft beer community where they live, and the addition of a dedicated market representative in Charlotte will allow us to accomplish that in an awesome market.”

Wise Man will be accepting applications for the Charlotte Account Manager through November 30th.

LOS ANGELES – Santa Monica Brew Works (SMBW), the first and only independent craft production brewery in Santa Monica announces the latest edition in their series of great-tasting, well-hopped IPAs.  Back by popular demand, 50 YEAR STORM JUICY DOUBLE IPA, is brewed exclusively with New Zealand hops, including the highly coveted Nelson Sauvin varietal.

“Our team has really found their sweet spot brewing award-winning hazy IPAs,” says Scott Francis, SMBW’s Co-Founder, President & CEO. “This one, in particular, goes even further to bring out the tropical flavor profile that makes the style so popular.”

This 8.9 percent Imperial Hazy IPA is brewed with Kiwi hops selected for their intense tropical juiciness. The combination of Nelson Sauvin, Motueka, and Waimea creates “swells of bodacious flavors.” Hopheads can expect notes of citrus, mango, and melon.  “I’m stoked we were able to get our hands on these highly sought-after hops from New Zealand,” says Drew Pomatti, SMBW’s Head Brewer. “We wanted this juicy IPA to showcase the bold flavors of Nelson Sauvin.”

Best enjoyed ultra-fresh, SMBW will feature 50 YEAR STORM on draft beginning Wednesday, November 27 (the evening before Thanksgiving). Limited-release 19.2 oz cans will go on sale the first week of December and will only available at the brewery’s Tasting Room (1920 Colorado Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90404). The name, “50 YEAR STORM,” is inspired by the folklore of giant storms that come only twice a century. These storms bring legendary surf to the beaches of Australia and New Zealand and create a pilgrimage-worthy challenge for big wave surfers. Santa Monica Brew Works hopes this special release IPA will inspire thrill-seeking beer lovers to make a journey of their own to their Tasting Room.

“This is a destination worthy beer,” adds Francis with a smile, “even if you have to travel west of the 405.”
