Hops: 2018 Ales for ALS Blend
For this special release, we wanted Quiet Hero to be unique and eye-catching. So, we experiented with a new type of label design. Taking cues from our previous charity release Favorite Sister and our Descendant Series, Quiet Hero boasts a metallic red red background that gleams and shines – you'll be able to notice it right away. (Red is the calling color of ALS awareness, too!) The focal point is a cool script typeface with a baseball player swinging for the fences in a slick matte coating. To the right, you'll find the ABV and IBU, with the SRB logo and the "Limited Series" denotation. Last but not least, the Ales for ALS logo is presented right above the SRB logo, as well as on the back of the logo below the beer's description.
Quiet Hero is available on draft and in limited 16oz 4-pack cans now in the SRB taproom. Pints are $7, and 4-packs are $13. Quiet Hero has already shipped out to select accounts in cases and kegs. So, keep an eye out in your favorite local stores! Quiet Hero is a limited, one time release.
