DALLAS (May 2023)– Lakewood Brewing Company has announced its lineup of “hot” varieties to cool off this summer, including a fruity seasonal, super-fresh draft only releases, new Temptress variants, and a new IPA Mix 12-Pack.
First is the return of our smashing summer seasonal Watermelon Queen, a refreshing and fruity American wheat beer that was made in collaboration with the Hill Country Alliance, whose mission is to ensure clean and abundant waters in Texas. It’s perfect for pool time!
Also new this season is Lakewood’s Brewer’s Stash Series, draft-only beers like Fresh Cut Haze IPA and Prickly in Pink Sour that will be available in limited release state-wide for the first time outside of Lakewood’s North Dallas Taproom.
The award-winning Temptress, the #1 selling craft stout in Texas, will continue as the foundation of the Seduction Series, a seasonal variant of Temptress. This spring, Lakewood introduced Double Stuffed Temptress for the first time in wide release, an Oreo-infused version that was originally only part of Lakewood’s annual Seduction Mix Six-pack. June will see the return of S’mores Temptress and the NEW Pumpkin Spice Latte Temptress, which will don “her” Ugg boots and infinity scarf for a late summer debut.
Lakewood’s Goddess Hazy IPA continues to gain ground at taps and shelves throughout Texas after a big launch in March. Proceeds (5%) from Goddess support local Texas chapters of the Pink Boots Society, which empowers and supports women in the brewing industry.
Finally, Lakewood is releasing its first variety 12-pack aptly named the Hop Snacks Variety Pack. This IPA focused sampler will see three of Lakewood’s current IPAs (Lakewood IPA, Big D Double IPA, Goddess Hazy IPA), along with a mix pack exclusive – Blood Orange IPA.
“We’ve been very busy brewing new and exciting beers at the Taproom, and I’m stoked to see these innovative beers reach our fans across Texas,” said Wim Bens, President and Founder of Lakewood Brewing. “We love sharing and exploring our passions!”
