Confluence Brewing Announces Next Extinction Event NE IPA Release Date

Confluence Brewing will have cans of the latest version of Extinction Event NE Style IPA available Friday, August 31st. The new brew will be available on tap and in tallboys to-go starting at noon. This is the fourth edition of Extinction and this batch includes Nelson Sauvin and El Dorado hops.

Confluence dipped their toes into the hazy beer game in March of this year with the first batch of Extinction Event. That beer used Citra and Huell Melon hops. The malts stay the same but the hop combination changes and batch two included Columbus, Galaxy and Mosaic. Finally, batch three (the most popular batch to date via Untappd) included Bravo, Citra and Simcoe hops.

Confluence describes theses beers as,

This series is our ever-evolving answer to the shifting landscape of IPAs. Each batch is created with a similar malt backbone, but with enough variance from its own sequence of lush, tropical-forward hops to be a unique species. Our passion for maximum flavor drives our unstoppable quest for incredible hop combinations. In this fun-filled exploration of the depths of the lupulin landscape, we are proud to share a fleeting glimpse of our short-lived creation. It's designed with a softer body, sweeter profile, and low bitterness, to showcase many of today's designer hops. Every batch in this hazy series will have its own unique hops line-up. You might be tempted to shelter this creation from extinction by squirreling it away, but to truly enjoy.

These beers are limited and sometimes hit a small distribution outside of the taproom. Those fly off the shelves if you're unable to make it to the Des Moines' Southside. As always, check the brewery's social media for additional details.
