JAWN of the Dead IPA Creeps Back to Neshaminy Creek

Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company (Neshaminy Creek) is proud to team up with the George A. Romero Foundation again to present its popular collaboration beer JAWN of the Dead Red Rye IPA. Resurrecting this forgotten style, JAWN of the Dead is 6.5% ABV and made with 20% rye malt, a variation on the year-round JAWN American Pale Ale teeming with Apollo, Ekuanot, Mosaic, and Nuggets hops. JAWN of the Dead’s icy, undead body is bready and toasty with a spicy bite that accentuates a pronounced bitterness. There is no escape from the pine, berries, and grilled tangerine notes.

JAWN of the Dead will be available on tap and in cans at all three Neshaminy Creek Taprooms on September 16, with distribution throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland. 10% of the proceeds from this beer will be donated to The George A. Romero Foundation to support their efforts.

GARF is dedicated to honoring the life, work, and cultural influence of George A. Romero, aka the “Godfather of Horror” and the pioneering filmmaker behind the “Night of the Living Dead” series. The foundation’s mission is to support the next generation of filmmakers and artists inspired by Romero’s legacy through scholarships and fellowships while also restoring and preserving the filmmaker’s work.

To locally celebrate the release of JAWN of the Dead, Neshaminy Creek will host a screening of the 1982 cult classic “Creepshow” at its Croydon taproom and brewery on September 16 with festivities kicking off at 5 PM. The event also features a Zombie Costume Contest, free zombie caricatures, and a raffle, including gift cards and merchandise. Daddy’s Kitchen food truck will be on-site serving up tacos, burgers, cheesesteaks, fries, and their signature pineapple bowls all night long, plus local vendors will be in attendance selling terrifying wares and collectibles, including comics, movies, and more.

“As we step into the second year of this unique collaboration, our team couldn’t be prouder,” said Kevin Day, resident horror aficionado and Logistics Manager at Neshaminy Creek. “Crafting fantastic beers is only part of what we do; what truly fuels us is connecting with diverse communities. From supporting remarkable musicians to teaming up with a drive-in movie theater and now joining forces with a true legend in the film industry through GARF, it’s all about pushing boundaries and following our passions. The decision to embark on this journey was a ‘no-brainer,’ a way to honor a pioneer in the horror genre while giving back to a community that thrives on creativity, innovation, and the DIY spirit.”
