No comments

Riverdale Park, MD – Denizens Brewing Co. is excited to announce that its popular Animal Hazy IPA will be released in cans beginning on March 7th. The taproom favorite will see its own release party and will hit distribution channels throughout Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia shortly after. Animal Hazy IPA will be available year round, joining the Maryland brewery’s flagship lineup.

Animal Hazy IPA – Wildly Hoppy

We are thrilled to release this Animal into the wild. This hazy IPA was an immediate fan favorite in our taprooms and we’ve been carefully planning its release–both in perfecting the recipe as well as the branding elements. The beer is absolutely delicious and the can art is incredible. We cannot wait for folks to enjoy Animal as one of their top go-to beers on the shelf. – Julie Verratti (Co-Founder of Denizens Brewing Co.).

This DDH IPA is light and hazy in appearance, highly aromatic, and packed full of juicy hop flavor. It strikes a balance between the notes of tropical flesh fruit, citrus rind, and pine sap showcased in American grown hops. Coming in at 6.0% Alc./Vol., this beer finds the sweet spot of flavor and ability to have more than one.

First available on draught in the Riverdale Park and Silver Spring taprooms of Denizens, Animal skyrocketed to become a favorite amongst a wide-range of beer drinkers—from regulars to newcomers.

Denizens continued to perfect the recipe in order to get Animal ready for the spotlight and the can demand. This is incredibly important as a hazy ipa has a relatively short shelf life compared to a traditional lager. Always taking quality seriously, Denizens uses a number of techniques to ensure their beers are fresh, meet high standards, and can be relied upon when found on shelves.

A great tasting beer deserves equally amazing visual representation. Denizens worked with artist/designer Bri Hermanson to develop the Animal character, the color scheme, and the additional visual elements for the can. The end result is an absolutely beautiful looking can—featuring the Animal character caught in the act devouring hops, and complemented by subtle design touches of claw marks and animal print. 

Available in cans for the first time starting on March 7th. Animal Hazy IPA will be distributed throughout Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia. Availability will be year-round and the beer joins Born Bohemian Pilsner, Lowest Lord ESB, Third Party Tripel, and Southside IPA in the brewery’s flagship lineup.

This Animal is sure to drive you wild.

About Denizens Brewing Co.

Denizens is a proudly independent and family owned craft brewery with locations in Riverdale Park and Silver Spring, Maryland. Their beers can also be found fresh on shelves and on tap throughout Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia. 

Co-founders Emily, Jeff, & Julie opened the doors to Denizens Brewing Co. in 2014 as the first production brewery in Montgomery County, MD. A place to enjoy great, locally made craft beer in a warm and welcoming space. They were critical in fighting for and succeeding in removing prohibition era laws that paved the way for Denizens and other local beer, wine, and spirit makers to exist and thrive. A successful first 5 years saw the company brew over 150 different beers, firmly establish an in-demand flagship lineup, build a loyal and engaged following, host unforgettable events as a space for the community, and in May 2019 they opened a second location in Riverdale Park to serve as a Production House & Taproom. This expansion has allowed them to meet the demand for an increased distribution arm throughout the DMV.
