Good news, everyone! You don't have to drive an hour and a half to get some Beast Brewing beer anymore. That's because the brewery to the southwest of the Old Pueblo is now selling their first bottled brew.
Starting Thursday, May 21, all of the Whole Foods Market locations in Arizona will be carrying 12-ounce bottles of Beast Brewing's first packaged beer: the Sexy Beast Coffee Stout. The beer is brewed with Old Bisbee Roasters' organic Nicaraguan coffee, making it a good pick-me-up kind of drink. According to the brewery, the Sexy Beast name comes from the drink's unique body.
It has a smooth, sexy texture, is medium bodied and perfect for the Arizona climate. It has a chocolate malt & coffee backbone with hints of nuttiness.
The Baja Arizona brewery, which opened a little over a year ago, will also be releasing their flagship strong pale ale in bottles within the next few weeks.
In a statement, Beast Brewing owner Amanda Gibson said that while the bottles will help keep up with demand, she also hopes it will increase the brewery's steadily growing fan base.
“Bringing bottles to Beast Brewing means we can reach that many more fans," Gibson said. "Bottles allow us to break into more accounts and give our fans the chance to bring our beer home to enjoy and share with friends, making us more of a household name. “
You can find bottles of Beast Brewing's Sexy Beast coffee stout beginning Thursday at the three Tucson Whole Foods Market locations: 3360 E. Speedway Blvd., 5555 E. River Road and 7133 N. Oracle Road.
