Wibby Brewing will be holding an early can release party at Wyatt’s Wet Goods in the new Village at the Peaks mall on Friday, March 25, from 4-6:45 p.m. The brewery will be offering tasting samples and food from the Village’s new Parry’s Pizza for their beers. Both the Wibby IPL and Lightshine Helles cans will be available for purchase.
Using traditional German brewing methods, Wibby Brewing’s craft lagers are brewed with malted German barley and American hops. These brews are then cold fermented with genuine lager yeast. The tasteful result of this combination is a collection of unique American lagers that few breweries in the craft beer community have chosen to explore.
The popular Colorado microbrewery is launching its canned take-home enterprise with two of their flagship favorites—Wibby IPL and Lightshine Helles.
Wibby IPL is a hoppy red lager with a fragrant, citrusy hop aroma and a smooth malt finish. It makes an ideal session drinking beer and is considered a smoother version of most craft India Pale Ales. It is 7.5% alcohol by volume with a hop rating of 76 IBUs. (The IBUs in beer refers to the International Bitterness Unit scale which is the standard for measuring the amount of hops in beer.)
Wibby Lightshine Helles is a light, sweetly finishing, Bavarian influenced lager that fits well with the warm days ahead. It has a clear, golden yellow appearance, accompanied by a lightly laced white head. It has a bit more malt than the average pilsner, with a slightly toasted tone and refreshing sweetness. Lightshine is 5.5% ABV, with a milder hop profile of 22 IBUs.
Wibby’s offerings will be openly available at other liquor stores throughout Longmont and Boulder County on Saturday, March 26.
