Friday night at Green Bench will see the release of “Creative Clay Chocolate IPA”. From Khris at Green Bench:

“This was a small batch collaboration we brewed with Brandon Evans from CB/BC (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cest-Bon-Brewing-Charity/1396241730635112). All money made from this beer is going to be donated to Creative Clay across the street from the brewery. It’s an adjunct based American IPA brewed with Flaked Corn and Florida Cane Sugar and aged on Cacao Nibs.”

Sounds delicious!


ACBW14 Green Bench tap takeover at Swamphead Brewery

From the Swamphead brewery website: http://swamphead.com/events/american-craft-beer-week-thursday-may-15th-green-bench-hangout-wetlands/

Come hang out with our friends from Green Bench Brewing Co. on Thursday of American Craft Beer Week. These guys are brewing amazing beer and are true craft beer artists.

Green Bench does not typically distribute beer in Gainesville but has accepted our invite to come pour beer, check out our tasting room and meet all of you folks.

Here’s recent video of Green Bench and their brewer, Khris on craftbeer.com: http://www.craftbeer.com/videos/green-bench-brewing-co-journey-of-beer

Here’s the taplist:

  • GBIPA is 6.8% ABV, 115 IBU, Dry hopped with Chinook, Simcoe, and Columbus: This our “bench-mark” beer. A medium bodied ale with aromas of soft citrus and earthy pine combined with very subtle notes of tropical fruit. This highly hopped American style IPA leaves your pallet with a lingering dry and bitter finish.
  • Stay Dry Stout is 5.2% ABV, 20 IBU, traditional Irish Dry Stout.
  • Skyway Wheat is 4.7% ABV, 45 IBU, hoppy wheat: Considered the “flagship bridge” of Florida, the Sunshine Skyway stretches 431 feet at its peak, and is over four miles long, connecting St. Petersburg to Terra Ceia through Hillsborough County waters. The impressive structure was recognized on The Travel Channel as #3 in their “Top 10 Bridges” in the World special. Equally as beautiful to behold is our hop forward American Wheat Ale, packed with four different varieties of US grown hops for a citrusy and pine-like flavor.
  • Saison de Banc Vert is 6.5% ABV, 25 IBU, 100% Oak Fermented with a farmhouse yeast in a foeder: Saisons, or Farmhouse Ales, were originally brewed as a summer seasonal in the French-speaking region of Belgium. Dry and crisp, our “Green Bench Saison” is packed with fruity esters similar to citrus fruits and spicy, peppercorn-like phenols from our farmhouse yeast strain.
  • Whitted White IPA is 4.7% ABV, 60 IBU, 100% Oak Fermented with a farmhouse yeast in a foeder, brewed with white peppercorn and grapefruit peel: An airboat took off on the first scheduled air flight in history from the downtown St. Petersburg waterfront on January 1, 1914. Honoring St. Petersburg native Lieutenant James Albert Whitted of the US Navy’s Naval Aviators, which Albert Whitted Airport is also named after, our White IPA is sessionable and refreshing, pairing the delicate spiciness of Belgian yeast and light colored peppercorns with citrus peels and a floral hop backbone.
  • Spring Bloom IIPA is 9% ABV, 100 IBU, Dry Hopped with Citra and Sorachi Ace. It is our spring seasonal ale.
