Two Breweries Are Brewing Up Something Special for SA300

Two San Antonio breweries have joined forces to release three special beers in celebration of San Antonio’s 300th anniversary.  Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling and Freetail Brewing Company, two breweries that have been leaders in San Antonio’s craft beer movement, will each release a beer this year leading up to the 2018 Tricentennial celebration.  They will then come together to brew a special collaboration beer to be released during the Tricentennial.

The first beer in the series will be released on Feb. 22.  Ranger Creek’s new San Antonio Lager is an easy drinking, approachable beer made in the style of a traditional German lager.  The artwork on the can is inspired by the Spanish architecture of San Antonio’s missions, and the colors are a reference to the throwback Spurs jersey.  Cans will be available at H-E-B and other San Antonio retailers on release day.  Draft will also be available in Ranger Creek’s tasting room and select bars and restaurants in San Antonio. 

The second beer in the series will be released in draft form only to select bars and restaurants in March 2017, with 12-ounce cans beginning distribution to retail outlets in August 2017.  Freetail’s San Antonio Pale Ale is a dry-hopped American pale ale featuring generous late additions of El Dorado, Calypso and Huell Melon hops lending rich aromas of tropical fruits and citrus.  Freetail’s can artwork is a tip-of-the-hat to San Antonio’s famed annual Fiesta celebration.    

The final beer in the series will be released in March 2018.  It will be a special release made for SA300 and only available for a limited time.  The two breweries are keeping the details under lock and key until further notice.  A release announcement will be made at a future date.
