Official Release Party for newest collaboration between Arooga’s and Pizza Boy set for 5:30 on April 30 at Downtown Arooga’s Followed by Firkin Tapping at Hershey Arooga’s on May 1 at 5:30
With Harrisburg Beer Week in full stride, Arooga’s and Pizza Boy are set to debut their newest craft beer.
Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar, with nine locations in Central Pennsylvania- soon to be ten with its newest location in Lancaster opening summer 2015 – today announced it is releasing Pizza Boy Brewing Company’s Arooga’s Double Wingstinguisher IPA at an official release party set for 5:30 on April 30 at Arooga’s Downtown Harrisburg. Arooga’s will tap firkins of this limited release at the party on April 30th at its Downtown location, and at the Hershey Arooga’s on May 1 at 5:30.
Arooga’s Downtown location will feature eight other Pizza Boy beers on draft at the April 30th event, and will have its limited offer Wingstinguisher BBQ sauce, made with Arooga’s first collaboration beer with Pizza Boy. On May 1 in Hershey, Arooga’s will host the official bottle release for two new sour beers from Pizza Boy: a raspberry sour and a black sour, while featuring 5 additional Pizza Boy draft beers. Arooga’s will be giving away glassware while supplies last at both events.
“Collaborations like these are exactly what we had in mind when we began work on Harrisburg Beer week,” said Sara Bozich, Harrisburg Beer Week producer. “These two local rock stars, Arooga’s and Pizza Boy Brewing, amping up their IPA for Beer Week is a treat for anyone who loves wings, beer and eating and drinking locally.”
Harrisburg Beer Week celebrates the growing craft beer industry throughout the greater Harrisburg area. The nine day, multi-venue series showcases breweries, restaurants, pubs and more through craft beer-centric events, demonstrations and education.
“We love craft beer at Arooga’s, and we think it’s awesome that our home town has decided to launch this first ever event showcasing some of the best beers in the area,” said Gary Huether, Jr., president and co-founder of Arooga’s. “We are excited about our continuing collaboration with Pizza Boy and think you’ll love Arooga’s Double Wingstinguisher IPA. Anyone who has been to Arooga’s knows that with more than 30 beers on tap at our locations, some with more than 50, we always have something for everyone.”
“Brewing a more aggressive, kick-ass version of Wingstinguisher had to happen,” said Pizza Boy’s owner Al Kominski. “Harrisburg Beer Week is the perfect time to launch it.”
