Just in time for Shark Week, Crooked Hammock Brewery has announced the return of Shark Party, a mixed berry sour that pours deep red and honors the ocean’s apex predator.
The brewery will hold release parties at both its Lewes and Middletown locations, complete with a first-taste toast and a shark-themed costume contest.
- First Taste Toast: The first pours of Shark Party will be free for all 21+ guests; the beer will be paired with a FREE Shark Bite raspberry grilled cheese. There will also be a Shark Attack Beertail, available for purchase, featuring gummy sharks and a taste of the “deep blue something.”
- Costume Contest: The Shark Wear Best Dressed Contest — in case anyone needs inspiration, click here and here and here — will reward the most creative shark wardrobe with a grand prize of a “wet and wild adventure” for 1 winner and 3 friends; contestants are encouraged to get creative. Winners in Lewes will receive a kayaking trip, courtesy of Quest Kayak. Winners in Middletown will get 4 tickets to Adventure Aquarium.
Shark Party is a favorite beer from Crooked Hammock’s limited-edition Seeker Series which the brewery says “tugs at the outer reaches of our taste buds.”
“Sharks are the ultimate apex predators, and the crazy cult following around them keeps growing,” says Crooked Hammock owner Rich Garrahan. “We plan to honor sharks, the oceans they live in, and the myths behind them — safe in our brewery on dry land, of course — while getting into the spirit of Shark Week.”
Shark Party clocks in at 6.5% ABV and contains lactose to keep the “ripe raspberry refresher” soft and sweet on the tongue.
The brew will be available in 16-ounce cans and on draft at both Delaware locations.
