POG Juice: Milkshake Sour IPA 7% ABV SOUR 🍋...HAZY ☁️.... JUICY 💦...TROPICAL🏝...BOMB 💣 We can’t think of any “BUZZ WORD” that we could of possibly missed when we designed our newest beer for the Low Country Luau party. We used 200 gallons of Passion Fruit, Orange, & Guava juice to make the P.O.G. Juice, which is popular on the Hawaiian Islands. The beer has a citrus sour flavor and nose of hoppy aromas from the double dry hop of Idaho 7 and Citra hops. Lactose and vanilla bean also have a trendy home in the new age IPA world and the sweetness adds a pleasant sweet note to the taste experience. #pogipa #milkshakeipa #idaho7 #citra #ltbsourseries #itslowtidesomewhere #drinkfreshdrinklocal #puckerup #chsaletrail #chsbeer #chscraftbeer

The 3 year anniversary party is also our kick off to our 2019 sour draft beers. To start rolling these out we brought back one of last year’s favorites, “Drink to Get Leid”. This flavor packed sour has notes of Mango, Pineapple, & Guava and is pleasantly sour, we’d say it is a great way to get the party started. Stop by and try it out for yourself. We have @chickenfats here to feed your faces until 8pm. #drinktogetleid #lowcountryluau #drinkfreshdrinklocal #weekendvibes✌️ #itslowtidesomewhere #sourbeer #chsbeer #chsaletrail #chscraftbeer

Did you know the boil kettle is where hops are initially added when making beer? You can add them at different times during the boil to get bitterness, flavor, and aroma. Feel free to stop in and check out our equipment that makes all the magic happen. @rootnotefood is back with us today to serve you good eats until 8pm. #funfact #didyouknow #boilkettle #hops #thirstythursday #itslowtidesomewhere #drinkfreshdrinklocal #johnsisland #chsaletrail #chscraftbeer

HOPPPY Birthday Triple IPA finds a middle ground between hazy soft New England IPA and traditional West Coast IPA flavors. We used three #hop varieties, Chinook, Cascade and Cashmere for a pleasant mix of resinous, dank and tropical hop flavors. We achieved a higher ABV by utilizing one of our favorite local ingredients- honey. This hoppy treat is the perfect way to kick off any anniversary party especially our 3yr #lowcountryluau March 30th! We have #trivia tonight at 7pm and @krystynaspolishfood here with slamming food! #hopppybirthday #tripleipa #drinkresponsibly #itslowtidesomewhere #drinkfreshdrinklocal #johnsisland #chsaletrail #chscraftbeer
