Reveals, New Launches and Gear

Carton Brewing x Barrier Brewing SS C.R.E.A.M.

Carton Brewing knows a thing or two about cream ales, and Barrier Brewing has hoppy beers down to a science. So when they decided to get together to brew a collaboration beer, it only seemed natural to marry the two. The resulting ale is called SS C.R.E.A.M., and it is a Hoppy Imperial Cream Ale. The name and can design were inspired by the one and only Wu-Tang Clan, with touches like a banner in the background that reads “Bring Da Ruckus.” It will be available later this year in 16-ounce cans.
