LUNAR NEW YEAR BEER RELEASES:

Beer: Water Rabbit Yuzu Pilsner (5.5% ABV) collaboration with Highland Brewing

Availability: Saturday, January 21st Release on Draft and 4-pack Cans ($18)

Description: Gong Xi Fa Cai and Happy Year of the Water Rabbit from Lucky Envelope and Highland Brewing! This refreshing west coast pilsner featuring real yuzu citrus fruit marks our fourth annual zodiac beer collaboration. Cheers to the new year with this traditional all-malt American Pilsner brewed with noble hops and fry hopped with Citra and Mosaic.

Beer: White Rabbit Milk Stout (6.3% ABV) collaboration with Ladd & Lass Brewing

Availability: Saturday, January 21st Release on Draft and 4-pack Cans ($18)

Description: We had so much fun with our first collaborations (Bob’s a Lucky Ladd for Latona Pub’s 35th anniversary), we decided to do it again! With the Year of the Water Rabbit upon us, we decided to brew with actual White Rabbit vanilla candies, an internationally-beloved candy that conjures up all sorts of warm and nostalgic fuzzies for those that grew up in the Chinese community (us, included!).

The milk candies and lactose lend a creamy smoothness while the dark malts create a delicious chocolatey profile. Like a warm hug from a loved one, this stout is percent for the cold winter months. Here’s to long-lasting friendships and a very Happy New Year!

Beer: 2023 Chai Spice Double Happiness Imperial Stout (12% ABV)

Availability: Saturday, January 21st Release on Draft and Single Cans ($12)

Description: Our 2023 Double Happiness marries two vintages of Westland Whiskey barrel-aged Imperial Stouts with a chai spice blend of cardamom, cinnamon, peppercorn, ginger, orange peel and cloves. The resulting limited release beer has a warm spiciness that complements our Imperial Stout’s deep notes of caramel, cocoa powder, and boozy toasted oak.

Beer: Metal Ox Juicy IPA (6.5% ABV)

Availability: Saturday, January 28th Release on Draft and 4-pack Cans ($18)

Description: The Metal Ox Juicy IPA returns! This celebratory Chinese Zodiac IPA is brewed with Seattle’s own MarketSpice Lychee Rose Black Tea and double dry-hopped with Citra, Simcoe Cryo, and Loral hops. This 2021 Chinese New Year release marked our second cross-country collaboration with Asheville, NC’s Highland Brewing.

Beer: Lucky Orange IPA (6.3% ABV)

Availability: Saturday, January 28th Release on Draft

Description: This West Coast IPA features Strata and Idaho 7 hops  and brewed with zest of oranges. Oranges are traditionally honored in Chinese Lunar New Year festivities as a symbol prosperity and wealth—often appearing in Lunar New Year decorations and presented as gifts.

Beer: Mijiaya Historic Chinese Beer (5.6% ABV)

Availability: Saturday, January 28th Release on Draft

Description: Named after the 5,000 year-old Mijiaya archaeological site in Shaanxi, Northern China. We brewed this special Chinese New Year release based on the starch and grains found in various brewing vessels excavated from the dig site. Brewed with barley, Job’s tears, millet, Chinese squash, lily flowers, and yam, the resulting beer is flowery, light, and clean.
