Flying Bison’s Juice Caboose IPA Makes Its Triumphant Return

Juice Caboose, Flying Bison Brewing’s beloved IPA, is making its comeback on April 24 (4pm). Juice Caboose is hazy, juicy and packed with a train-car full of hops (Centennial, Citra, Galaxy, Rakau, Cascade, Denali) to create a soft bitterness as well as a creamy mouthfeel courtesy of the addition of wheat and oats. For the release, Flying Bison are teaming with Pizza Amore, so when you stop down for some beer, grab a wood-fired pizza to pair with it. The brewery’s favorite pizza styles are Chicken Wing, Pepperoni, and Veggie. Grab 2 six packs, because they are BOGO 50% OFF.
