For Immediate Release

JACKSONVILLE, FL ― The brewers at Veterans United Craft Brewery are launching the newest addition to the current lineup with the introduction of a very special beer this week. Naughty Rye Pale Ale will be available exclusively in the taproom beginning at 5:00pm, Thursday, February 19th.

Beautiful to behold and thirst-quenchingly-delicious, the sassy and sensational Naughty will wryly entice you to savor each sip. The light golden ale will greet you with a delightful aroma of grapefruit and hints of melon, and the full flavor imparted by the bountiful use of rye malt and Citra hops will smoothly transcend to a spicy and crisp finish. It comes in at a refreshing 5.1% ABV.
In addition to being served by the pint in the taproom, Naughty will be available in take-home growlers. The limited release, 20-bbl batch will also be available on draft across the brewery’s distribution footprint beginning in March.
