Booze News: Icarus Brewing Company Introducing "Remote Release" and "Choose Wisely"

Lakewood, NJ's Icarus Brewing Company has firmly established itself in the local discourse since it opened in 2017.  With widely successful beer releases, and a top notch distribution model, Icarus has become a favorite for many beer enthusiasts throughout the state.  Now, a new beer series looks to take that excitement one step further.

Yesterday, Icarus announced the release of a new series, "Remote Release". According to Icarus Owner and Head Brewer Jason Goldstein, Icarus will "be rotating this series at locations around the state, working with the Liquor Stores/Bars in a collaborative way to create new beers based on our existing IPAs but with brand new hops or blends of their choosing."

The first version is Remote Release Volume 1 - a 10.5% ABV Triple NEIPA brewed with European Pilsen, Vienna, and Lactose. Its dry hopped with Lupulin Mosaic and Simcoe, Motueka, Columbus, and loads of Vic Secret.  This version was a collaboration with The Milton Inn, and is tied in with a 22 tap takeover Icarus had there last night, and will only be available in their store as well as in our taproom.

In addition, Icarus is releasing a 7% ABV IPA called "Choose Wisely". According to Goldstein, Choose Wisely is a "Sabro heavy North East India Pale Ale which we tested out with Blonde Roasted Oats." He continued by detailing that Blonde Roasted Oats "is a new malt for us, and should help smooth out the body of an IPA with a very distinct Oat flavor and sweetness without the thickness of Flaked Oats as well as messing around with Sabro which gives a unique Citrus more reminiscent of Grapefruit with a herbal mint characteristic. This leaves the Single IPA with a fluffy body bursting with notes of tangerine, coconut, tropical fruit, mint and cedar."

Both cans are available in the taproom today.
