Peanut Butter Jelly Time (5.7 percent ABV) makes its eagerly anticipated return on Friday, March 3. A light brown ale with a touch of wheat in its malt bill provides the bready base for the star ingredients. This one-of-a-kind beer was then aged on real whole roasted local WNC peanuts and Oregon raspberries, resulting in the wildly popular “sandwich in a glass.” PB&J will be available on draft and in new 4-pack tallboy cans in all Catawba tasting rooms and in distribution.

Catawba Brewing Releases Small Batch Belgian Tripel

Catawba’s Belgian Tripel was inspired by the strong golden ales brewed by the Trappist monks of Flanders and Wallonia. The style is the newest addition to the abbey ale trinity (Dubbel, Tripel, Quadruple), having first appeared at Westmalle Abbey in the 1930s. It was said to be Belgium’s response to the growing popularity of pale colored beers in Europe. However, unlike the prevailing light lagers of the time, the Belgian Tripel utilizes a unique yeast strain, and roughly three times the malt of a standard “Single” – hence the name. The result is a style that helped elevate Belgian beer to a pinnacle once reserved only for the best wines of France or Italy.

Catawba Brewing Releases Small Batch Blood Orange IPA

Blood Orange IPA (6.5% ABV) is the latest in Catawba’s new series of fruited hoppy beers, which began with last month’s popular Pineapple IPA. Ripe citrus and tropical fruit flavors marry perfectly with the aroma and flavor notes of fresh West Coast hops. Brewed with flaked wheat in the mash, this India Pale Ale features the soft mouthfeel and juicy character associated with New England IPAs. Citrus-forward hops were selected for both the whirlpool and dry-hopping, with a final addition of over 150 lbs of real blood orange puree. The result is a citrus bomb of an IPA light in body and incredibly drinkable at only 55 IBUs.
