A Note on This Beer
This bundle will ship IMMEDIATELY and FREE, separate from all beers in your current open crate. It’s our hope that shutdowns across the nation won't affect deliveries.
Tavour always had a clear mission: support independent craft breweries and build a community of like-minded beer lovers. And we’ve never wavered from that.
Now, in this unpredictable and difficult time, that mission is more important than ever. That’s why, today, we put together this box of beers to showcase just a few of the talented breweries we partner with.
The goal? To stand together and support these indie businesses in a time of crises, when even tomorrow is unknown. And with today’s curated selection, we can all come together while enjoying a whole lineup of freshly brewed, 4+ rated hopbombs from some of our favorite breweries across the country.
*All purchases will benefit the breweries featured in this box. In addition, we’re donating a portion of the proceeds to the Tennessee Brewers Guild to help their fight for legislation that makes it easier for independent breweries to serve their customers, without the burdens of unfair rules that hinder their growth.
Here’s what you get:
Illuminated Brew Works - Chicago, IL - Fruit Slave Imperial IPA - 7.5% ABV - Canned on 3/17/20 - 2x16oz cans
Illuminated Brew Works is one of the Brewers Association’s Fastest Growing Breweries in the Nation.
Their limited batches and Nabisco factory-turned-brew-space have earned them a massive cult following. Plus, Illuminated takes all your favorite childhood flavors and whips them into even more delicious, sippable beer form — like in Fruit Slave!
Just like that striped, colorful gum you chomped as a kid, it’s tropically delicious and proudly contains no actual fruit. Instead, the brewers dry-hopped it with Motueka, Citra, and Mandarina Bavaria Hops for mouthfuls of candied citrus, juicy melon, and ripe mango, with a final gush of pineapple.
And this succulently smooth confection comes spiked with a grown-ups only 7.5% ABV!

Holy Mountain Brewing - Seattle, WA - Vessel of Brass Imperial IPA - 8.3% ABV - Canned on 3/19/20 - 2x16oz cans
Everyone from the Seattle Times to Seattle Magazine calls this brew crew one of the best in Washington. Even Thrillist named them one of the city’s best! And, you’re pretty much not allowed to call yourself a beer geek in Seattle unless you’ve tasted at least one Holy Mountain brew.
But, we almost never get to share them with all of you — their small batches and huge demand mean that even here, they can be tricky to get ahold of!
That’s why we’re so excited about Vessel of Brass Imperial IPA! If you’ve never had the opportunity to try a Holy Mountain Brew, now’s your chance.
Loaded with piles of Citra, Idaho 7, and Simcoe Hops, plus touch of Sabro Hops, this brew sits somewhere between a New England-style juicebomb and an old-school West Coast IPA. It’s fruity without being sweet, resinous without being bitter, and loads of flaked wheat and malted spelt in the mashbill keep the mouthfeel smooth and soft. Look for lots of melon and citrus, but with a clear body and a hoppy bite on the finish.

Resident Culture Brewing - Charlotte, NC - Causal Continuum New England-style IPA - 7.0% ABV - Canned on 3/18/20 - 2x16oz cans
Why are folks so excited about this little North Carolina brewery? Check it out:
- Forbes says they’ve “quickly become one of the nation’s elite breweries!”
- Craft Beer and Brewing named them a Breakout Brewery when they were less than 2 years old!
- Headbrewer Chris Tropeano honed his skills at California’s famed Russian River!
And today’s Causal Continuum will introduce your tastebuds to Resident Culture’s hoppy virtuosity with a blast of improbably fruity hop flavors.
The brewers stuffed it with a harvest’s worth of Nelson Sauvin, Citra, and Mosaic Hops; every sip is drenched in layers of white grape, fresh squeezed OJ, and tropical fruit juice. Dank kush flavors dance amid splashes of drippy stone fruit, finishing with just the slightest hint of resin.

Bearded Iris Brewing - Nashville, TN - Homestyle New England-style IPA - 6% ABV - canned on 3/12/20 - 2x16oz cans
Nashville is the only city on earth where you can tour the Johnny Cash Museum in the morning, have some hot chicken and biscuits for lunch, and end the day with a show at the iconic Grand Ole Opry.
AND still squeeze in a stop at one of the Top 5 Best New Breweries in America: Bearded Iris!
The folks at USA Today aren’t the only ones singing their praises. Even Paste Magazine called this hop-focused operation one of the Best Breweries of 2018 for their mind-blowing IPAs!
Homestyle IPA is a single-hop juicebomb that features a delectable arrangement of citrus and berries in a fluffy haze, thanks to a healthy dose of Mosaic Hops. It screams flavors of orange juice, boasting a full body that inspired one fan to exclaim: “Slap me in the damn face with that smoothness! Unreal.”

4 Noses Brewing - Broomfield, CO - Revised Copy New England-style IPA - 7.2% ABV - Canned on 3/20/20 - 2x 16oz cans
Coloradans are spoiled for choice when it comes to incredible breweries with showstopping Hazies — New Belgium, WeldWerks, and Odd13, to name just a few.
But right now, local hopheads are pushing all the others off to the side. Instead, they’re scouring store shelves for the latest micro-batch release of Revised Copy from 4 Noses.
Food & Wine Magazine, Denver Eater, and Denver craft fans themselves all hold up 4 Noses as a Top Essential Colorado Brewery. And today is your chance to taste an essential beer from this essential brewery.
“...[Revised Copy is] pretty much the perfect NE style IPA! Hazy and tropical, with a nice Mouthfeel,” @Jake E. on Untappd.

Reuben’s Brews - Seattle, WA - Mosaic Crush Hazy IPA - 6.0% ABV - Canned on 3/19/20 - 2x16oz cans
Not only was this husband-wife duo named one of Thrillist’s 10 Best Breweries in Washington, but their arsenal of world-class brews has earned Reuben’s over 200 local and international medals!
That’s more than any other brewery in the state!
So, it’s no surprise that when they release a beer that showcases Mosaic Hops in all their tropical, citrusy, dank, stonefruity glory, every hophead and haze fiend in Seattle scrambles for a chance at it.
Juicy guava and ripe mango rise from the opaque, OJ-like pour. On the first sip, it’s all orange and citrus with dashes of white grape and papaya. A slight hop bitterness dances across the tongue before finishing crisp and clean.
