Space Race Returns

The people have spoken, and our May BC Small Batch launch will be (drum roll sound) exactly the same as April’s BC Small Batch launch.

Space Race, a double dry-hopped hazy double IPA, rocketed off store shelves this month, moving as fast as any previous BCSB release. We know hazy IPAs are an in-demand style, but the velocity with which Space Race achieved liftoff surprised even us. Sending another round of Space Race into orbit made perfect sense.

If you missed it the first time around or just need a refresher: Space Race was one of the most popular hazy IPAs we piloted in our Beer Hall last year. For the 2019 version, we doubled down on it.

  • 9.5% ABV
  • Hops: a DDH dose of Citra, Simcoe, El Dorado
  • Low Bitterness
  • Flavor/aromatic notes: Pineapple, guava, papaya, sweet orange

If you want to count down the days at your own personal mission control, the next launch is scheduled for the week of Monday, May 6th. Space Race is available to all U.S. Surly markets. We do not and will not apologize for the aerospace wordplay. Astronauts are cool.
