Press Release from Elysian Brewing –

Release of Savant IPA No Trivial Pursuit

You know this. You remember this beer. Its name, its taste–and its memory–right on the tip of your tongue. That fierce bitterness and that wonderful Passion Fruity hop flavor and aroma. Maybe you can’t quite place it. But it’ll come to you, around mid-January, in 22 oz. bottles and on draft in places that get it. Savant IPA is making its second appearance in the Elysian Manic IPA series, but under a smart new name. There’s no confusion. This is that beer.

Last year Savant was called something else, something–what was it?–Inane? Stupid? Foolish? Something maybe too clever to share with the wider world. There was certainly some silliness. But whatever its name, it’s the same great beer, bittered with Northwest Chinook and drenched with New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. Brewed with Maris-Otter pale,Munichand Cara-Red and Crisp 120° Starting gravity 17° Plato, 6.25%ABV, 66 IBUs.

Don’t give up. We know you’ll get it. Think. Drink. It’s wiser than the others. Savant IPA. It’s the same terrific beer, with the same monkey, and a different name.
