San Diego’s legendary AleSmith Brewing enters 2022 with an addition to its lineup with a style that we’re happy to see gaining traction once again. Debuting this month is Party Tricks, a West Coast-style IPA that’s packaged in 6-pack, 16oz tallboy cans.
Party Tricks brings back some of the aromas and flavors that has made the West Coast IPA a longtime favorite. This one is brewed with massive amounts of Strata, El Dorado and Citra hops to bring forth a nice citrus aroma and flavor in a well filtered IPA that sits at 6.8% ABV. The dankness is kept at bay so Party Tricks will also satisfy fans of Hazy IPAs. It’s definitely a nice beer to welcome in the New Year.
“We’re thrilled to kick off AleSmith’s portfolio with an IPA that showcases the new format along with a fun and dynamic marketing campaign,” says Brandon Richards, President of AleSmith, in a statement. “Party Tricks is the first release of three beers that will be available in 16 oz. 6-packs. We love the format, and we are seeing that our beer customers across the state enjoy it as well. With the transition to a new format, Party Tricks will be a prominent addition to our lineup and a key priority for AleSmith throughout 2022.”
Party Tricks is now available in 16 oz. can 6-packs and draft at AleSmith’s Tasting Room and throughout their distribution network, including here in Oregon via its distribution partner, Point Blank Distributing.
