Jolly Pumpkin Announces Release of 2 Collabs with North Peak

Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales announces the release of two collaboration brews with North Peak Brewing Company, Habitante Espíritu and El Monstruo del Norte.

Habitante Espíritu (Sour White Ale) is Jolly Pumpkin’s second oak-aged collaboration with North Peak Brewing Company. For this beer, they blended a batch of North Peak’s Diabolical (India Pale Ale) with a specially brewed batch of North Peak’s Dweller (Double White IPA) and then inoculated the oak with a small amount of mature Oro de Calabaza.

El Monstruo del Norte (Wild Ale with Chestnuts) is their third oak-aged collaboration with North Peak Brewing Company. They took North Peak’s Gnarl (Chestnut Amber Ale) and combined it with around 40% of La Roja (Sour Amber Ale) and then aged it for 4 months in oak before securing this beast in bottles.

Habitante Espíritu has an ABV of 7.9% with 49 IBU. El Monstruo del Norte has an ABV of 6.7% with 19 IBU. They are available now in 750ML bottles and draft.

Habitante Espíritu and El Monstruo del Norte will be available for purchase at craft beer retailers, restaurants and bars throughout Michigan, including North Peak Brewing Company in Traverse City and Jolly Pumpkin in Traverse City, Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor, Detroit, Royal Oak, Dexter, and Hyde Park in Chicago, Illinois. Habitante Espíritu is featured as the October Beer of the Month at all Jolly Pumpkin locations.
