A Refreshing and Well-Balanced West Coast IPA Bursting with Fruity and Floral Notes and Dry-Hopped with Tropical Hops
“21st Amendment was among the earliest craft breweries to use cans and one of the first to can its IPA… Brew Free or Die is…indicative of the beer that ingratiated itself to San Francisco in the first place.” –Marketplace
“A well-brewed take on an IPA that’s both fun and uncommon. The interplay of malt and hops is well crafted, and this is a great example of an IPA that uses the malt to its advantage with supporting earthy hops bitterness and floral fun.” –Craft Beer and Brewing
“Brew Free! Or Die is one of the purest examples of the West Coast IPA and all its nationalistic glory.” –Paste
“a great classic West Coast IPA” –The Manuel
San Francisco, Calif.— Thursday, May 13, 2021 — The 21st Amendment Brewery takes an island vacation with their latest year-round release Tropical Brew Free! or Die IPA (6.8% ABV). This “summery” companion of their iconic west coast Brew Free! or Die IPA and Blood Orange Brew Free! or Die IPA hits shelves nationwide in 6-packs and 12-packs in July 2021. The Brew Free! or Die IPA lineup expands to include this refreshing tropical IPA with mega-juicy kettle hops and a harmonious blend of Idaho 7, El Dorado, Azacca, Mosaic, Amarillo, and Calypso dry hops.
“Our original Brew Free! or Die IPA has always been a bellwether of our craft beer selections since before it was even named that and just known at our San Francisco pub as ’21A IPA,'” says Shaun O’Sullivan, Co-Founder and Brewmaster of 21st Amendment Brewery. “We’ve had a lot of fun with Brew Free! creating a blood orange IPA and celebrating with a unique packaging design. Tropical Brew Free! or Die IPA was built from the ground up with a lighter malt bill and a touch lower in alcohol giving this beer a refreshing tropical aroma and flavor. It’s a first-rate IPA and perfect for summer.”
“The package depicts Abe Lincoln with sunglasses on and in full vacation mode. His stuffy bowtie is replaced with a flower lei and the other Mount Rushmore Presidents are cheering him on against an aquamarine background that sets the scene. Every sip is like an island vacation!” says Nico Freccia, Co-Founder and COO of 21st Amendment Brewery.
Tropical Brew Free! or Die IPA rolls out this month in 21st Amendment’s IPA Variety HopPack and will be available in all 33 states (6-packs & 12-packs) where 21st Amendment distributes in July 2021. For more information and to find some using their beer finder, please visit www.21st-Amendment.com.
