If You Can It, They Will Come to the Distillery of Dreams on Friday, March 24 for Release of First-Ever Canned Beer – Love Handles Double IPA
South Kingstown Distillery Celebrates First Canned Beer with Beer, More Beer, Craft Cocktails, Whiskey Flights, Live Music from Mickey Lamantia and Food from Open Season
If you can it, they will come. Not to some cornfield in Iowa, but to South Kingstown on Friday, March 24 to celebrate the release of Sons of Liberty’s very-first canned beer – Love Handles Double IPA (DIPA).
Forget Shoeless Joe and Moonlight Graham – the people will come for this voluptuous DIPA that’s got curves for days. Brewed at 7.8% ABV and sold in 16-oz. cans, Love Handles Double IPA is a New England Style IPA (NEIPA) with distinct mango on the nose and a body deserving of its name. Double dry hopped with 8 lbs/BBL of Equinox and Eldorado Hops, Sons of Liberty used floor malted Maris Otter to support the busty hop additions and 18% oats to create a juicy, creamy mouthfeel.
Throw back a few of these cold beauties, or any of the great beers Sons of Liberty now has on tap, to the sound of Rhode Island’s favorite country outlaw, Mickey Lamantia, as he will be playing live in the distillery’s tasting room. And since proper love handles require a team effort of beer and food, Warwick’s Open Season will be making the quick trip down the road to provide mouthwatering eats, including pretzels with Uprising Stout Beer Cheese, Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese and Wild Boar Bratwurst with Bacon and Beer-Braised Onions.
The distillery will open its doors at 5 pm, but the line will probably start sooner. No money needed at the door [1425 Kingstown Road, South Kingstown], only for drinks and food! Call 401.284.4006 for even more details.
