The beer, with its tropical fruit and citrus hop notes designed to mix nicely with Crystal malts, is meant for lounging by the water on a hot day. Boat Show, at 7 percent ABV, comes after repeated experiments under the name of “EXPIPA”.

“Boat Show is the result of a lot of testing, in-house and in the public eye,” brewery owner Nate Cornett said. “We asked our customers to let us know which batch of this beer they liked best and they clearly chose this version. Boat Show is the perfect outcome of many months of batch comparisons and analysis. It’s now ready for sharing with our friends.”
