Marin Brewing is releasing its popular, but previously tap-only, IPA known as 3 Flowers in 22 oz bottles. The rye IPA weighs in at 6.5 percent alcohol by volume and is hopped with the three flowers that give it the name: Citra, Cascade and Chinook hops. The brewery developed the beer in 2011 and it took gold that same year at the Great American Beer Festival and a silver medal at the 2012 World Beer Cup. The brewery says this is the first time the beer has ever been sold outside of the brew pub.
“Our 3 Flowers IPA has been a hit with our customers ever since our brewmaster, Arne Johnson, came up with it,” brewpub founder Brendan Moylan said in a release announcing the release. “We are excited to be able to share this beer with the world and allow our fans to take it home with them by the bottle. This beer is just too good to keep to ourselves and we know the greater craft beer community is going to love it as much as we do.”
