Bootlegger’s Brewery to release highly sought after hoppy craft brew

Pliny the Younger is not the only beer with all the hype. Fullerton, CA based Bootlegger’s Brewery is releasing their specialty – the Knuckle Sandwich DIPA (Double India Pale Ale; same beer-style as the Younger) starting tomorrow. The release weekend will kick off Thursday, February 23 until Sunday, February 26. Owner Aaron Barkenhagen released a newsletter this afternoon stating the limited availability of the brew. The Knuckle Sandwich DIPA will not be distributed to retailers, only bars on kegs as “this time around we had to make a little less than December due to other production constraints.” There is a three bottle/one growler purchase limit per person. Additionally, Aaron and the team will be celebrating their fourth birthday on Friday, April 13. 401 South Richman Ave., Fullerton, CA 92832. 714-871-2337.
