On Saturday, August 31st, we’ll celebrate two of our loves: football and beer. Join us in the tasting room for our bottle release, photos and autographs by NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp himself!
A Florida native and fan of our brewery, Warren is a friend of ours and a welcomed collaborator. Together, we strategized on the identity and variety of ale that would best represent his distinguished career. We landed on #99, a hoppy Belgian-style blonde ale with a zesty nose and balanced flavor profile.
To create a beer as epic as the star it’s named after, we fermented it with our Belgian yeast strain for delicate fruity notes, and added a generous amount of citrusy hops to the whirlpool to create a fragrant aroma. Finally, we heavily dry hopped it for just the right amount of bite and bitterness.
From 1-3pm, the Super Bowl champion and Barrel of Monks will be selling #99 as a limited release in a champagne-style 750ml bottle, with the label showcasing Sapp’s Pro Football Hall of Fame bust. $17 gets you a special release bottle and includes a signature on the label. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Warren Sapp Foundation.
