September is Social Media Month

DOCKAugust has been a blur here at the brewery; with Davis Beer Week stealing the show and a few new brews in the works, planning Social Media Month has been, shall we say, difficult. But, fear not fans and friends of Sud, we have rolled the theme over the September! Starting this September, we will begin a social media contest every week for the rest of the month. The winner of each week will be announced on the Thursday of that week. Winners will received a Sudwerk T-shirt, a social media shout out, and a display at the Thursday reveal party.

Bike Party Pilsner Release

Inspired by the Bike Capital of the USA (Davis, CA) and the local Davis community, Bike Party Pils was created to combat those hot summer days with its refreshingly clean and crisp taste. bike-party

The limited-release Bike Party Pils is a lighter, dry-hopped variation of Sudwerk’s top-selling beer, Northern Pilsner, which just won a silver medal at the California State Fair. Bike Party Pils is lower in alcohol (4.5 vs. 5.3% ABV). The Mandarina Bavaria, Huell Melon and Citra hops are added at the end of the brewing process, picking up their fruity aroma but maintaining the lager’s crisp, smooth finish.

While most of the mass-market American beers are pilsners, they are underrepresented in the California craft beer market, Sudwerk co-owner Trent Yackzan said. “High quality, California-made craft pilsners are hard to find. As a brewery solely focused on brewing craft lagers, pilsner is our favorite style and we’re working to draw as much attention as we can back to this amazing style.”

The new summer seasonal was launched in draft at the end of June and bottled in the beginning of July. The bottles reads “inspired by Northern California’s avid bike culture and dedicated to our hometown of Davis, Bike Party Pils celebrates a healthy, active lifestyle and giving back to your local community”. In the spirit of these words and the new release, Sudwerk Brewing partnered up with Bike Party Davis, a monthly fun and casual ride that allows cyclists to get to learn more about the City of Davis in a lively, interactive way. The two groups participated in the monthly ride that finished up at the Dock for an exciting post-ride party with plenty of Bike Party flowing from the Dock Store taps.

Find Bike Party Pils at Nugget Markets, Davis Food Co-op, Whole Foods, Raley’s, and other select merchants around California. Fans will find it on tap – in limited release – at the Dock, and at select accounts, throughout the summer.
