Gathering Place Brewing Releasing 5 Draft Beers in Cans


By - Apr 10th, 2020 09:56 am

Gathering Place Brewing is adding five new beers in cans, doubling its canned offerings to 10 beers. The new beers, available in 4-packs of 16 oz cans, will be released on Saturday, April 18 from 2-6 p.m. in the taproom along with fresh batches of flagship beers Friendly Debate IPA and Treffpunkt Kolsch.

“These seasonal and one-off beers are some of our best sellers and we’ve considered canning them for a while,” said Joe Yeado, founder of Gathering Place Brewing. “Our mobile canner recently told us they could package directly from kegs, meaning we can get these beers to our thirsty customers in a safe and responsible manner.”

The five newly canned beers are:

  • Ryed of the Valkyries (4.7% ABV/ 27 IBU), an Amber Rye Lager with a spicy pumpernickel flavor complemented by a floral hop aroma. It has a clean taste but assertive bitterness.
  • Conversation Starter (6.3% ABV/65 IBU), an Italian Style Pale Ale that sparks conversation with questions like What makes it an Italian Pale? Why does it taste so soft? What’s that aroma?
  • Kings Alley (5% ABV/49 IBU), an Altbier with a crisp, nutty flavor and an assertive but palate-pleasing bitterness. Floral and herbal with a black tea-like hop character.
  • Storm & Stress (5.3% ABV/ 27 IBU), a German Black Lager with flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, plum, and citrus zest. Tastes clean with a hint of roasted malt sweetness.
  • White Rooster (4.7% ABV/ 36 IBU), a White Tea Pale Ale that pairs floral and honey aromas from Rishi’s White Peony tea with bright citrus and spiciness from Saphir hops.

Customers can purchase these beers online starting Friday, April 17 at 9 a.m. with pick up Saturday, April 18 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Visit Gathering Place Brewing’s online shop to order for pickup or visit the taproom to order beer-to-go.

About Gathering Place Brewing Company

We distinguish ourselves from other craft breweries in three main ways: our products, our commitment to the community, and our status as a local place for people to gather. The brewery’s name derives from the native Potawatomi word minwaking, meaning “gathering place by the waters.” At GPBC we are committed to community engagement and donate 1% of sales each quarter to a local charity while also hosting $1 for Milwaukee events in which GPBC contributes a portion of sales to non-profit groups making a difference in the community.
