Dragoon/Pueblo Vida Collaboration Release. Caps & Corks is home to the first great beer collab of the year! In December, Dragoon and Pueblo Vida brewing put the finishing touches on their collaborative “Chirality IPA” and are releasing it this week. Chirality is a kind of scientific asymmetry, often found in chemistry. Does this hint at what Dragoon and Pueblo Vida are up to with this collaboration? Well we don’t have to guess, because Pueblo Vida recently released the info on this anticipated collab: This craft beer was brewed with Great Western 2-Row, C-15 and C-60 malts, and Unmalted Sonoran White Wheat from BKW Farms in Marana. It was also dry-hopped with a nugget and experimental hop blend. This release event also features Dragoon’s and Pueblo Vida’s own IPAs, so you can taste every part of the Venn diagram. 5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10. 3830 W. River Road.
