NEWPORT, OR — Award-winning craft brewery Rogue Ales & Spirits, and celebrated Austin-based design house known for custom motorcycle builds; Revival Cycles has partnered to release a new limited IPA; Knuckle Buster Cold IPA. The collaboration, rooted in design, incorporates both brands’ passions for craftmanship and hard work. The name “Knuckle Buster” was chosen to also pay homage to gearheads and craftspeople from all walks of life and industries.
“At Rogue, we are always working on new ideas that break from the norm; this collaboration is no different,” says Dharma Tamm, Rogue President. “Our friends at Revival Cycles in Austin, Texas also like to push the envelope with their hand-built motorcycles, so teaming up on a new style of IPA that uses a cold fermentation technique just made sense.”
One Texas-based element to the beer release are secret gold coins. With the January release throughout stores in Austin and the surrounding cities, select Knuckle Buster six packs will come with a gold coin placed between the lid of the can and plastic six pack ring. Over a dozen lucky individuals who find the gold coins, will be able to redeem them at the 2022 Handbuilt Motorcycle Show produced by Revival Cycles in April 2022 for a Supporter Ticket ($200 package), which includes VIP Lounge Access, Discounted Drinks, Access to the VIP areas of the Pre-Party, Discounts on Merch and skip the line access at the show.
“At Revival Cycles, we understand that collaborating with like-minded design focused people is how we all grow, learn, stay fresh, and innovate. This fun project with Rogue allows us to expand our footprint and drink more of their delicious IPAs,” adds Alan Stulberg, Founder, Revival Cycles.
Knuckle Buster Cold IPA is best described as a cross between a pilsner and an IPA. It opens with a delightful floral hop aroma that is followed by more hops, cracker, bread, and a soft sweetness across a very light body. The finish is crisp and refreshing with a nice bitter bite.
