Brickyard Brewing and West Shore Brewing, the same breweries that brought you White Bronco New England IPA and Green Flyer NEIPA, have teamed up on Das Blep Double Dry Hopped NEIPA, a hazy creation not short on cat puns.

Cans will be released at both locations on September 22 during Oktoberfest celebrations at each brewery. Brickyard will be selling Das Blep cans on the street during the Hops & Harvest Festival at 10am an cans will be available at West Shore at 5pm.
