On Thursday, May 16th, Point Pleasant Beach's Last Wave Brewing Company conducted an AMA (Ask Me Anything) with the Reddit community at r/NJBeer. The AMA was conducted by Bert Roling, Owner and Brewer, alongside Nick Joirle, "Owner and Janitor". Some of the most groundbreaking news to come out of the session was the announcement of Last Wave's first bottle releases.
In response to a user asking "what can we expect for your Anniversary in terms of releases and special tappings?", the duo stated:
We'll have our Guava Gose in cans and draft, our new Kveik yeast NEIPA, called Endless Daze getting tapped, and a few variants on some of our staple beers:
S'mores Right Coast Coconut Porter
Coconut Mojito State of Stoke Kolsch
Serrano pepper+Mango Kombucha-infused Green Room IPA
Also, this is first announcement of this, 22 oz bottles of our Late Takeoff Brown ale, one version that was aged in Maple Bourbon Barrels, and the other aged in Red Wine Barrels.
Late Takeoff is a 6% ABV Brown Ale that first debuted on draft at the Last Wave taproom in September 2017. A variant with cinnamon debuted the next month. This will be the first bottle release for Last Wave.
