LAKEWOOD — Southern Tier Brewing Company introduces a new 16-ounce double India Pale Ale can collection.

The brand new “Science is the Art” collection showcases their brewers’ scientific exactitude through distinctive commissioned artistry. Featuring vibrant and energetic graphic novel-like labels, the collection will feature six expertly crafted, flavorful episodes that depict a short story throughout 2018. The first episode titled “All is Well at the Station,” is set to be released in early January.

The six releases feature new flavor profiles, and each label is an episode in a six-part story, as interpreted by sci-fi artist, Christopher Balaskas. These unconventionally named beers each serve as a snapshot of an unfolding science fiction tale. “All is Well at the Station” is an 8.5 percent alcohol by volume, double IPA featuring Amarillo, Chinook, CTZ and Simcoe hops, giving this brew a big citrusy and earthy character with a dank edge. It is a remarkably drinkable double IPA as the malt bill leaves just enough residual sweetness to perfectly balance its hoppiness. As for the artwork, we see an astronaut flying above a tranquil moon outpost. Surely all is well … or is it?

From the brew house to the laboratory and beyond, STBC has made quality with scientific backing a pillar to its success. This series is where artistry and science merge and the two are indistinguishable, where “science is the art.”

The Science is the Art Collection is sold in 16-ounce, four-pack cans.
