Door County Brewing Co. Releases Pallet Jack Cruiser IPA
Monday, December 26, 2016
    Baileys Harbor, WI – Door County Brewing Co. releases Pallet Jack Cruiser, its first full-time American IPA.

    “The name Pallet Jack Cruiser spurred from the reckless entertainment anyone
    who has ever worked around a pallet jack might be familiar with,” said Alicia Daubner, Director of Marketing for Door County Brewing Co. “You can’t help but get on one and ride it, no matter how illogical it may be.”

    The brewers at Door County Brewing Co. drew inspiration from such momentary breaks during their workdays and developed a beer worthy of such a break.

    “For Pallet Jack, we used Citra and Azacca hops to create a hop forward beer that was a little lighter on the bitterness,” said Danny McMahon, Head Brewer of Door County Brewing Co. “By showcasing flavor and aroma and keeping the ABV on the lower end, I see this being a go-to beer for a lot of people.”

    Pallet Jack Cruiser will be available in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, and Indiana January 15, 2017.
