Quick Bites: 7.12.23

a super partnership | Fans of the animated series Voltron, Defender of the Universe won’t want to miss 4 Hands Brewing Company’s new series of beers. “When we were presented with the opportunity to work with the Voltron team, 10-year-old Kevin got very excited!” says 4 Hands founder Kevin Lemp. “In order to maximize the reach of this project, we’ll spend two years working with brewery friends from across the country in the hopes that these beers and the story will allow our fans to reminisce on simpler times, being young and not having a care in the world.” The first to be released is Volume One, a hazy IPA brewed with Narrow Gauge Brewing Company in Florissant.
