Summer starts early with the arrival of local brewery Alley Kat‘s seasonal summer beer! As the weather warms up and the sun starts to peek through, nothing seems more appealing then relaxing and enjoying a cold drink on an outdoor patio; Alley Kat helps to invoke those days of summer with their new Summer Squeeze Grapefruit Ale.
Celebrate the release of this refreshing, citrusy brew with a FREE launch party at the brewery (9929-60 Ave) on Thursday, April 4. Drop-in any time between 5 pm – 8 pm. Their new Full Moon Belgian Pale Ale — an updated version of their standard Full Moon Ale — will also debut at this event. Samples of the brew and appetizers will be served, and there will also be complimentary brewery tours for those interested in having a behind-the-scnes look at the brewing process.
Can’t make it to the launch party — or want to enjoy more of this summer-in-a-bottle beverage?

Growler refills and bottles can also be purchased directly at the brewery. Head to Underground (10004 Jasper Ave.) on April 18, 6 pm, or Cha Island Cafe on June 1 for a special cask of the Grapefruit Ale that will be made with extra hops!
Beer geeks will also want to head to The Next Act Pub (8224-104 St.) on Tuesday, April 9, 6 pm for their monthly cask night which will feature the new Full Moon Belgian Pale Ale; brewed with Belgian yeast, it will be more full-bodied and spicier than their standard Full Moon Ale.
