“We are honored to work with Steve and his team on this historic hazy double IPA. This beer was particularly special to us, so we are using some distinguished hops, pulling out all the stops!” said Christian Spears, founder and president of Tennessee Brew Works. “It has been an absolute pleasure working on this project with Turner Häus Brewery. The tagline, “Celebrating Community Through Craft Beer,” truly encapsulates this collaboration, which will be the first of many. Our Jazz + Brews event will be an important conversation for our industry, as well as our customers.”

“I am always proud to see Nashville entrepreneur’s come together to support one of our own. Turner has all the right ingredients for success in his newest venture Turner Haus Brewery…great product, passion to innovate and a plan to grow. The successful launch of the Gazelle Hazy IPA is just a start. I feel it is important, as a fellow black business owner, to pay it forward in all that you do as well as honor those that came before you. Turner does just that with this series,” said Eric Holt, event moderator and managing partner at Lovenoise.

Fieldwork Brewing Company Expands Napa Valley Location

An ambassador for craft beer in Berkeley, California, Fieldwork Brewing Company expands its Napa Valley location with a new outdoor beer garden and increased indoor taproom capacity at the Oxbow Public Market Annex (1046 McKinstry Street, Napa) in spring 2021. Fieldwork Brewing opened its taproom at Oxbow Public Market in 2016, which will remain open until the Grand Opening of their new locale. At the adjacent Annex, Fieldwork builds out its indoor footprint to 1,450 square feet with an additional 900 square feet outside for the European-style beer garden. The new Fieldwork Taproom and Beer Garden at Oxbow Public Market Annex overlooks the Napa River and Oxbow Commons green space, and is located next to The Fatted Calf and Model Bakery.

“We are excited to have this expanded indoor / outdoor space to present a Fieldwork environment that is more akin to our other larger Bay Area locations,” said Barry Braden, CEO and Co-Founder of Fieldwork Brewing Company. “Our goal is always to provide the best hospitality, a casual environment, and seasonal beers — as fresh as possible and directly from the source.”

Steve Carlin, Founder and Managing Partner of Oxbow Public Market stated, “Barry and Alex always produce a terrific product and fun atmosphere. We expect their new space to be lively, comfortable, and a major part of Oxbow Public Market for years to come.”

Brewing well over 500 unique beers since opening its West Berkeley brewery in February 2015, Fieldwork brews with as much a sense of purpose as a sense of place as they honor Northern California’s magnificent outdoor landscapes with an array of idiosyncratic beers. The esteemed brewing team led by Head Brewer and Co-Founder Alex Tweet focuses on innovation for its ever-evolving roster of highly aromatic and well-balanced beers. Based on seasonality and consistent quality, Fieldwork forges its own path brewing beers they simply love to drink.

Walking into Fieldwork Brewing locations is never the same experience twice with their ambitious brewing program featuring signature IPAs, Double IPAs, lagers, pale ales, sours, stouts, etc. Bay Area regulars and out of town visitors can always rely on enjoying an onslaught of beer varieties with the tasting menu in constant rotation. Some beers reappear and others never repeat.

The Fieldwork Taproom and Beer Garden at Oxbow Public Market Annex will feature upwards of 18 beers on the menu, and will present live music and other A&E programming.

Moonbathe with Hendrick’s for 1st Full Moon of the Year

Hendrick’s Gin is proud to unveil Hendrick’s Lunar, the second limited edition release from Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie’s Cabinet of Curiosities. Instilled with botanicals that flourish below the light of the moon, Hendrick’s Lunar Gin will be released in the States on January 28, when the first full moon of the new year occurs. To honor the momentous occasion, Hendrick’s is inviting cocktail connoisseurs and star gazers alike to enjoy what is “quite likely the world’s first Lunar gin” as part of a moonbathing ritual to embrace the New Year and leave behind the old.

According to Vance Henderson, Hendrick’s Ambassador to the United States, “Hendrick’s Lunar offers a delicate balance of gentle spice and subtle floral notes with a soft citrus finish.” Henderson recommends it as “the perfect gin to savor casually at home or during starry nights with friends.”

“An activity practiced by esteemed members of Hendrick’s Gin Palace in Girvan, Scotland, moonbathing is the polar, or rather the lunar, opposite of sunbathing,” explains Henderson. “Yet instead of baking under the harsh light of the sun with barely any clothes on, one can dress stylishly below the moonlight, which supports celestial contemplation and many claim provides the ideal ambiance for rejuvenation and a renewal of the mind and body.”

For newbies to moonbathing (and let’s face it, who isn’t?), Hendrick’s is providing a how-to video, along with a full moon video stream as part of its Streaming Service for those who prefer to moonbathe inside the comfort of their home. Additionally, the gin maker is offering a full moonbathing kit, which includes moon goggles, a lunar blanket and moonscreen lotion (rated MPF 28). The kit is available for purchase on Hendrick’s Tiny Shop to enjoy moonbathing on any night of the year.

“The first full moon of the year brings new beginnings,” Henderson continued. ““and by using typical twilight hours using them for restorative moonbaths accompanied by a Lunar cocktail, we can potentially soothe the demeanor of the world, or at least a tiny proportion identified as the ‘nocturnal curious.’”

Not surprisingly, another advocate for the powers of moonlight is Hendrick’s Master Distiller, Ms. Lesley Gracie, who firmly believes that the botanicals she cultivates in her two distillery hothouses take on entirely different sensory characteristics under the influence of moonlight. It was one particular evening, tending to her hothouses in the still of night, when she was inspired to bottle the cosmic sensation of being at peace with nature under the moon and stars – thus creating this unconventional gin.

Launching in January 2021 throughout the U.S., the new Lunar bottle retains the distinctive Hendrick’s shape, evocative of Victorian apothecary jars. The label coloring is a sophisticated, deep blue reflective of the night sky and includes curious celestial imagery that conjures a feeling of imbibing under a moonlit sky.

Hendrick’s Lunar was first released in the UK in January 2019 and will now be offered in most high-end spirits retailers within the U.S. for a limited time only. It is also available online through select e-commerce partners for delivery on-demand to states where legal. Lunar is bottled at 43.4% ABV with a $39.99 SRP.

For further information and a list of Lunar inspired cocktails fit for imbibing under the stars go to hendricksgin.com/US and follow on social media at @hendricksginus #hendrickslunar

NOBIS X SERGE IBAKA

Premium Canadian outerwear brand Nobis launched its first capsule collection designed in collaboration with Toronto Raptors centre and NBA champion Serge Ibaka. Known for his #BigScarfEnergy, Ibaka teamed up with Nobis to help create a genderless collection that features nine limited-edition pieces, including a parka, anorak, bomber jacket, vests, hats and, of course, scarves.

The collection ranges in price from $50 to $850 and each piece is home launderable. Nobis fans can expect the same premium quality, style elements and technical components: The genderless hooded anorak features a modern high-low cut and front pouch, while both the anorak and bomber jacket have a water-repellent nylon shell and breathable Primaloft insulation for fast-drying warmth.

The collection’s parka is crafted from Nobis’ patented membrane lamination, seam-sealed construction and insulated with Canadian origin white duck down. The lightweight tactical vest, with multiple exterior pockets, is windproof and breathable – ideal for transitional weather and mild winter days. Reflective trims and iridescent logos on most pieces provide an accent to the neutral palette, in addition to visibility after dark. Accessories have been given the same attention to detail, with options such as a solid nylon ripstop bucket hat that’s reversible to Nobis’ signature printed polyester crosshatch, featuring a tonal “S” logo on the front and an iridescent limited-edition collection label on the back. It reverses to reveal a camouflage print and Serge’s signature “Mafuzzy” catchphrase on the rim.
