DESTIHL Launches New
Year Round Offering:
  DESTIHL Brewery launches Synchopathic, a dry-hopped sour, this week. Synchopathic builds on DESTIHL's strong line up of 12oz. sours in cans.
Synchopathic is the combination of a refreshingly tart and acidic sour ale with robust-citrusy, fruity & floral dry-hops one would otherwise find in a pale ale, with aromas and flavors reminiscent of grapefruit, orange, lemon, tangerine, pineapple and hints of pine, giving way to a biscuity-crackery malt backbone, low bitterness and dry finish to bring it all in synch.
The growth of light-styled sours is tremendous and Synchopathic in a can adds a versatility DESTHIL's competition can't match

Available Year Round In:
Sixth Barrels
6/4 Pack 12 oz. Cans

Let Summit's Saga IPA Fill the Void
  It's not a secret that IPAs made with fruity and floral hops are what consumers are chasing every day. We all know, also, that some of those brands can be nearly impossible to come by and if you are left out of this round of sales that can mean consumers go elsewhere. Why worry at all? Summit Saga offers the bright tropical fruit aroma and flavor that consumers scramble around every week to find. This high quality technique along with an exceptionally reasonable price point mean you as a retailer can rest easy knowing you are well stocked and not having to play the guessing game every week.

How Clean Are Your Draft Lines?
  Without question the easiest way to improve the quality of beer that you serve your customers is consistently cleaning your draft lines. Zink is very proud to adhere to the standard of cleaning our lines every two weeks. We have been asked before about the necessity of this practice and now this standard gets a great article from none other than the Brewer's Association itself. For those who are unaware, the Brewer's Association is the governing body for every brewer, micro or macro, in the country. Take a look at the link below to see why cleaning every two weeks is so important to both the quality of your beer and the maintenance of your system.
