Portland, Maine – Award-winning Allagash Brewing Company is excited to share their take on an IPA with more fans than ever before–the beer releases to their entire national distribution footprint. Hops grow swiftly at the start of spring, and Allagash captures the lush,citrusy, and resinous flavors alongside a generous grain bill in this amber-colored IPA called Swiftly.
“We couldn’t be more excited to share Swiftly with beer fans around the country this spring,” Jason Perkins, Brewmaster at Allagash. “It’s fun for us to brew a hoppier beer. Inside the brewery we have plenty of IPA lovers, and this beer, because of its amber color, is a bit different from other IPAs.”
Swiftly stemmed from Allagash’s pilot system, a program that allows any employee at Allagash to submit a concept for a beer. Since its inception in 2007, the pilot system has led to the release of countless well-loved Allagash beers. There was buzz about Swiftly from employees as soon as it went on tap, and the excitement was reciprocated by wholesale partners as well.
“We were thrilled by the positive response from our distribution network for Swiftly,” said Naomi Neville, sales director, Allagash Brewing Company. “With the demand for IPAs continuing to grow, this was one of our most successful pre-orders of a specialty release.”
At 6.5% ABV, this specialty launch will be available in 4-packs of 16-ounce cans throughout the 19 states and Washington, D.C. where Allagash is distributed.
