Sideswipe Brewing Co. in Columbus will release its first seasonal brew this week. Pixelated Sun is a hoppy wheat made with a large dose of Citra hops, the brewery reports.
The official description is: "Worshiped as a god in ancient times, its warm glow still warrants celebration in modern days. This light, straw-colored wheat beer is infused with Citra hops, giving it an invigorating, citrusy and hoppy finish. It’s perfect for saluting the solar deity above from the comfort of your lawn chair. Praise the sun."
The beer, which is 6 percent alcohol by volume, will be available in 22-ounce bottles and on draft at select locations around Columbus.
"We already have plans for a fall seasonal beer and we are developing additional beers for future seasonal releases," brewer and owner Craig O'Herron said in an email. "Our three flagship beers — Elegant Hoodlum smoked stout, Fisticuffs IPA and Coop Looter saison — will continue to be available year-round."
