Old Mission Beer Co., the in-house beer brand offered exclusively at Jolly Pumpkin - Old Mission Peninsula, announces its inaugural collaboration brew: Jubilance Holiday Ale—a special seasonal brew crafted with locally-produced Press On Juice.
A release party will start at 5:30pm on Wednesday, November 26 at Jolly Pumpkin on Old Mission Peninsula—the noted “biggest bar night of the year.” Brewer Mike Wooster and Press On Juice Founder Kris Rockwood will both be on hand from 5:30-7:30pm hosting a Q&A about the beer and its creation.

Brewed with local Crystal and Zeus hops, Jubilance comes in at 7% ABV and 40 IBUs.

“The specialty grains lend a candied sugar presence, while giving the beer a burgundy color that are sharpened by the color of the cranberry, orange, apple and ginger juices,” says assistant brewer Mike Wooster. “The blend of barley, wheat and rye are complimented with ginger juice, while the fermented fructose from cranberry give it a tart, boozy finish.”

Press On Juice was founded in 2013 by Traverse City native Kris Rockwood, as a lifestyle change following a diagnosis of immobilizing rheumatoid arthritis. Each of her 30 or so juice recipes are created using a multi-step production process. She starts with grinding at least two pounds of raw, organic fruits and vegetables into a fine pulp that is then placed in a linen bag and slowly squeezed on a hydraulic press to maximize extraction of the juice and its nutritional enzymes. Each cold-press bottle of delicious Press On Juice is all natural, loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and living enzymes which provide health-conscious customers beverages that aid in weight loss, nutrition and disease prevention.

“I am so excited to be collaborating with Old Mission Beer to create this superior brew with our two companies. We are looking forward to Wednesday night getting to see people’s reaction to this fun combination! It’s going to be a great drink for the holiday season,” says Kris.
