Fremont Brewing Releases the ‘Sky Kraken’ Hazy Pale Ale

Like a vengeful Greek god, Fremont Brewing of Seattle will release the ‘Sky Kraken’ Hazy Pale Ale on Thursday, January 24th, at the Urban Beer Garden starting at 4:00 PM. Sky Kraken Hazy Pale Ale is a new year-round beer from Fremont that will be available in 12oz cans, kegs, and 22oz bottles across Fremont’s entire distribution footprint. Sky Kraken is Fremont’s newest year-round release since Lush in 2017, which started as a seasonal in 2016.

A naturally unfiltered beer, Sky Kraken is made with Strata, Mosaic, and a touch of Citra hops and 2-Row Pale malt, malted oats, white wheat, and flaked wheat. Sky Kraken swims through the sky with ripe melon, juicy citrus, pineapple, and pepper flavors.

“We released the Kraken because Krakens can only be kept a secret for so long,” explained Matt Lincecum, Fremont Brewing CEO. “Nicknamed ‘Sky’, this Kraken likes watercolors, chocolate cookies, tuna snacks and dislikes being alone. So, if you see the Kraken, please take it home and share it with friends.”

Down & Dirty: 2-Row Pale malt, White Wheat, Flaked Wheat, Malted Oats, and Rolled Oats with Citra®, Mosaic®, and Strata® hops.
ABV:  5.5%           

IBU: JTRA (just the right amount)
Color: Hazy pale-straw
Aroma: Guava, lemon, pineapple
Flavor: Melon, citrus peel, grass
