A Note on This Beer
If you’ve been paying any attention to Florida’s booming craft scene, you know Civil Society has been tearing it up since 2015. Their hoppy brews are so beloved by locals, thirsty craft fans wait in lines stretching around the block — just to snag a taste.
In the Florida humidity, people! That’s commitment! So, those of you who are still sleeping on these Sunshine State legends, consider today’s juice-drenched Fresh NEIPA your one-way ticket aboard the excitement express.
Fresh is Civil Society’s flagship beer, and according to head brewer Karl Volstand, “the brew we’ve dialed in most. It outsells everything 3 to 1.” Which says a lot, considering every single one of their NEIPA’s scores an impressive 4+ on Untappd.
Once you’ve sipped its creamy foam and indulged in its smooth, tropical nectar, we think you’ll understand why Fresh garners such high praise.
The brewers loaded it with a carefully selected combination of Citra and Columbus Hops to create what Karl describes as “that dank and earthy piney character, but you also pull a lot of citrus character out of the Columbus, and Citra is just a tropical fruit smoothie.”
In honor of the occasion, we recommend calling up a few craft buddies for a sun soaked tasting in the backyard! Get those glasses chilled STAT, and snag those lawn chairs from the garage. Your blissful, hazy afternoon is just around the corner.
When Hop Culture asked Karl which beer he enjoys brewing the most, he said “Fresh, because it’s my baby.”
