Just a few months removed from making their 311 Amber Ale widely available for all to enjoy via Luekens Liquors, 311 recently announced that they will be releasing their follow-up effort in November in the form of an IPA. Once again teaming with Rock Brothers Brewing in Tampa, FL., the band has announced that the brand new, “Beautiful Disaster Imperial IPA” will soon be hitting the shelves!
311’s debut beer release 311 Amber Ale was a long-time coming, having been brainstormed upon for years dating back well before its release in 2015. Rock Brothers Brewing proved to be an important catalyst to bringing the idea to life, as they were able to come along “with an authentic model that made it possible for the band to make the beer they wanted.” The beer featured a golden-amber pour with caramel and malt accents, paired with a forest-like aroma and a clean finish.

Much to the delight of 311’s fans and beer enthusiasts alike, enter the fresh, new Beautiful Disaster Imperial IPA which will debut November 3! In describing the flavor that can be expected for the IPA, the band released an update to help their soon-to-be-drinkers get a feel for what’s to come:
“We started with a base malt that imparts a subtle nutty flavor and combined it with others that add a malty sweetness and clean finish. We used Mosaic hops for aroma and flavor, combined with the right amount of bittering hops to give it a little bite. Kumquats provide the unique citrus flavor, a touch of tartness and that beautiful orange color.”
Mosaic hops – how fitting! Those who indulge in this mighty fine beverage can expect high volume with ABV clocking in at 11.3%. This will be a limited edition beer, only available in bomber bottles of 750mL. Tentative dates for online orders are slated to begin in early January — check back at The Pier soon for a review of the new release, and follow the link for the official website for Beautiful Disaster Imperial IPA by clicking HERE!
