In the wake of recent news about craft breweries getting gobbled-up by Big Beer, No-Li Brewhouse wanted to make a beer to celebrate independent craft brewing. This Friday, October 9th, 6-packs of Slacker hit the shelves. The beer is described as being very fussy: “Creamy, slightly sweet, vanilla taste that melds seamlessly with the orange peel.”
Here’s the press release about Slacker, “a chimp off the old block.”
SLACKER IS ONE INDEPENDENT MONKEY
No-Li 6-pack Celebrates Independent Craft Brewing, And That’s No Bull… It’s A Monkey
Spokane, WA… Recently, there have been quite a few changes happening within the craft beer industry that raise some concern about local breweries’ independence. No-Li Brewhouse decided to send their message loud and clear with their newest 6-pack, Slacker: A Chimp Off The Ol’ Block!
“This beer is so good and so complex that we almost asked for help from a larger brewery,” says Brewery Operations Manager, Damon Scott, with a smirk. “But we wanted to show our team and our supporters that we’re capable of going big… and we can do so independently.”
With a solid 6.1% ABV and 20 IBUs, Slacker brings a unique brew to independent and free-loving craft beer enthusiasts.
Scott says, “This recipe highlights Madagascar Vanilla Beans post fermentation, giving the beer a creamy, slightly sweet, vanilla taste that melds seamlessly with the orange peel.”
Slacker delivers a smooth foundation from wheat, acidulated and caramel malts, and the sweet orange peel tossed in during boil lets the juicy orange flavor and aroma shine. The strong citrus character, reinforced by Comet and Cascade hops, only confirms that the delicious orange does not fall too far from the Brass Monkey tree!
Keep a close eye on your local stores, folks, because Slacker 6-packs will swing into the market on Friday, October 9th!
