Michigan-based North Peak Brewing Company introduces its latest craft beer—a summer seasonal called Mighty.  According to brew master Ron Jeffries, this sessionable melon ale (4.8% ABV | 22 IBUs) boasts aromas of watermelon, berry and guava. This exceptionally drinkable beer is the perfect balance of malts, melons and gently-hopped Vanguard, crystal and Michigan chinook hops.
Like all of the North Peak beverages, Mighty is born out of Northern lore.

“The Mighty Melonheads of Michigan have been described as mischievous and playful, yet many takes of kindness have been passed down for years,” recounts Tony Grant, COO of Northern United Brewing Company. “They were even said to forage in the melon patches, stealing the sweetest and ripest of the fruits.”

Mighty will be available in April 15 through August 31 on draft and in six-pack 12-ounce stubby bottles throughout Michigan, California, Florida, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Missouri and Texas--wherever your favorite North Peak beers are sold.

North Peak is part of Northern United Brewing Co., which also encompasses the Grizzly Peak and Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales craft beer brands, as well as the Civilized line of spirits and Bonafide Wines. NUBC’s philosophy focuses on a dedication to conservation, inspiration and locally-sustainable practices.
