Prepare to Pucker
Introducing “City Island Sour” IPA – a year-round beer that captures the essence of a Bronx summertime escape. Inspired by the vibrant destination known for its sunshine and delectable seafood, this brew became a permanent fixture in our lineup in August of 2019.
Immerse yourself in a truly unique flavor experience crafted from a harmonious blend of hops and Sourvisiae yeast. The result? A tantalizing peachy profile adorned with zippy hints of lemon and lime that dance across your palate.
Prepare for a puckery adventure as you indulge in this tongue-tingling and tart brew. With its floral aroma, every sip transports you to memories of sunny days and sweet treats. Picture yourself biting into those irresistible sour peach rings, where each mouthful leaves you craving more.
As City Island Sour evolved through the years, we felt it was time for its uniform to receive a vibrant update. That’s when we enlisted the creative genius of our friend and master graffiti artist, Enoe. His artistic prowess brings a fresh burst of energy to the visual identity of City Island Sour, mirroring the boldness and excitement of the beer itself.
“I feel like sour beers are an acquired taste and I felt the art should be just as unique,” he said.
Using an older painting as a reference, Enoe converted his design to digital for this can piece, using the liquid as his inspiration to visualize the flavors as colors.
“The shapes and colors in the art represent a person relaxing with sunglasses and staring at a radiant star in the sky,” he said. “Let’s just say we want whoever is drinking this to believe they’re drinking liquid gold.”
