Sidekick is back and ready for action this summer… this time in bottles!
You may have tried this beer from us last season in 6-pack cans. The cans were an experiment for us – a chance to package a smooth summer beer in an accessible, portable and durable container. We really enjoyed the opportunity to try a different method of packaging and the beer proved very popular for us. But, since Peace Tree does not own a canning line, brewmaster Joe brewed and canned the beer off-site at his former employer, Cold Spring Brewing in Minnesota.
This year, we’ve decided to bring the beer back home – brewing and packaging several smaller batches here in Knoxville through the summer.
As such, you should expect to see Sidekick Kölsch-style on store shelves in our signature 6-pack “stubby” bottles starting in late May 2014!
Haven’t tried the Sidekick before? Here’s the official description:
“Some beers fight for attention and then there are some unsung heroes. Wearing the mask of a lager, this cold-fermented ale is crisp and refreshing yet packs a wallop of flavor. Lightly hopped and brewed in the tradition of Cologne, Germany, this Kölsch-style ale is the perfect companion for your backpack, tackle box, or picnic basket. Ka-Pow!”
Sidekick Kölsch-style is 5% alcohol by volume, making it an easy-drinking beer for those hot summer outings. Enjoy!
