On Saturday the Staggeringly Good brewery launched their new 8% Double IPA at a special event at Play Dead Studio on Highland Road.
The Jurassix Pack beer’s malt base is predominantly pale with a healthy dose of oats and to round out the mouthfeel and provide a little extra sweetness to balance out the IBU’s. The six pack has been created in collaboration with six of our favourite local artists. Each artist has designed the packaging of one of the six cans in the pack. Those involved should be well known to regular Strong Island readers. They include My Dog Sighs, Midge, Samo, Other Things (a collaboration of Ooberla & Stu Linfield), M-One and Fark.
The event surpassed expectations of those involved! With long queues reaching around the block. I am told that a handful was kept back and are available from the Staggeringly Good brewery or Play Dead directly. There are available on a first come first serve basis and when they are gone, they are gone. Here are a few photos from the event by Russ Cox.
