Joining the likes of Flying Bison, Resurgence Brewing, Hamburg Brewing, Ellicottville Brewing and Southern Tier Brewing, Community Beer Works are venturing into the 12 pack game with the Community Pack, a brand new mixed variety pack full of tried and true beloved CBW staples, as well as a special rotating selection chosen specifically by the brewers themselves.

The new Community Park features three cans each of Good Neighbor IPA, Let’s Go Pils, That IPA and a Brewer’s Choice selection, which is The Whale to begin with. So, to recap, in one 12 pack you get a hazy IPA, a session IPA, a pilsner and a special surprise. Well, it’s not exactly special because the packaging will tell you what the Brewer’s Choice is, but you catch my drift. And what better beer to launch this with than The Whale, a legitimate award-winning beer, and one of the best brown ales you’ll find around. I should also mention that That IPA is also an award winner.

“We’re so excited to roll out our brand new variety 12 packs,” Mike West, Community Beer Works social media & taproom events manager, says. “This is something we’ve wanted to do for a while and it’s very rewarding to see our Community Packs in action!”

The brand new Community Pack will be available at the brewery’s taproom and wherever great beer is sold, such as Wegmans, Tops and Consumer’s Beverages to name a few, as early as this weekend.

“Whether you’re just looking for a little variety or you’re sampling our award-winning beer for the first time, the Community Pack is fresh, affordable and easy to find—and they’re perfect for sharing! They’re available now at our Brewery & Taproom and will be hitting stores any day,” West adds.
