Tiny Drink Umbrella got its start as a limited Tasting Room-only brew back in the summer of 2018.
It featured blueberry and raspberry flavors, and like many of our special releases, it was one that needed to be kept cold and was perfect for enjoying in the moment.
Things have changed a lot since then, to say the least, but we’ve been going strong with our Tiny Drink Umbrella series ever since!
Our latest in the lineup is a new take on this sweet treat series.
As a callback to that very first smoothie ale, we’ve since released Tiny Drink Umbrella: P.O.G. (passionfruit, orange, and guava), Tiny Drink Umbrella: Imperial (which was packed with pomegranates, black currants, and dark cherries), Tiny Drink Umbrella: Cherry Limeade (featuring, you guessed it—cherries and limeade!), and our most recent past release in 2020: Tiny Drink Umbrella: Piña Colada (which was AH-mazing).
Tiny Drink Umbrella: Piña Colada featured notes of pineapple, coconut, and just a hint of lime.
Smoothie ales add copious amounts of fruit puree to get the flavors just right, and most of the other beer elements take a backseat to the fruit character.
Fortunately, for our hard seltzer bases, they’re uniquely primed to highlight the fruit character of whatever we throw at it.
(I mean, have you tried our seltzers? Talk about liquid fruit juice!)
Our sixth Tiny Drink release is Tiny Drink Umbrella: Strawberries and Cream, a fruit smoothie hard seltzer! It’s a special release because it not only joins the Tiny Drink family, but also our Hard Seltzer fam.
Smooth, sweet, and lightly carbonated, Tiny Drink Umbrella: Strawberries and Cream combines the best of fruit smoothies and hard seltzers. Made with an all-natural cane sugar base blended with oodles of strawberry puree, lactose, and vanilla to create a unique drinking experience to enjoy!
We’re kicking off the release of this brew with the return of our Floral Fridays, all day today. Our Tasting Room will be decked out in floral, island, and fruit decor, and we welcome folks to dress to theme or enjoy one of the leis we’re offering to everyone who comes out to join us!
Stick around for Nick Rotindo, who will perform a live steel drum set from 4pm to 7pm.
Tiny Drink Umbrella: Strawberries and Cream is 7% ABV and available today, Friday January 28th, on draft and in 4-pack 16-ounce cans for a limited time while supplies last!
