SweetWater Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has released yet another label for an upcoming release from their Dank Tank Series, and you can plan to get Some Strange shortly after 2013 rolls in.
Some Strange II Black India Pale Ale is the second beer in SweetWater’s queue of upcoming offerings from their Dank Tank lineup, a series of occasional one-off beers. This installment will be an imperial version of a Black IPA (also commonly referred to as American Black Ales or Cascadian Dark Ales) that will weigh in at 10% ABV. Some Strange will also be a bit of celebratory beer for the brewery as it will be the first offering brewed on SweetWater’s new brewhouse. There is not a lot of information about Some Strange available at this time, but we do have access the always entertaining (and often just a bit crude) label story from the brewery which references two of Atlanta’s more notorious nightlife spots. It goes as follows:
Living large with his 7 year squeeze, Capt. Danky was suddenly blindsided as he discovered General Betrayus under the sheets with his ho. Unstable, delirious, and in desperate need of relief, he headed to the Cheetah to drown his sorrows with a few motorboats. After his wallet was drained by a lovely dental hygienist student, she whispered in his ear the 411 on a swinging late night dance club called Johnny’s Hideaway where he might get lucky. Wearing his big boy pants, he jumped in the first cab and beelined it to the hopeful honey hole. A Stupefied Capt. Danky slipped in and was immediately pounced on by the house mama who set her meat hooks into him to do a little dirty dancing. Capt. Danky was swept off his feet by this big ol’ beauty and lured her back to her cougar den for some Danky Spanky.
Capt. Danky awoke with an ear to ear hicky and massive claw marks on his chest, back and saco-a-jo-wia. He slowly rolled over and uncrusted his eyes, hoping to figure out what was saddled up next to him under the leopard skin sheets. As his vision cleared, he gagged, learning that he had “seasoned” a big fat black double IPA. Horrified, he grabbed his ring off the nightstand and jumped out the window before it was awake and ready for round two. Here’s to hoping his buddies never discover his bag-age.
GET SOME STRANGE!
Since SweetWater just announced that The Gimp will be their next Dank Tank brew to be released toward the end of the year, you can expect to find Some Strange on shelves shortly after the New Year. Like all Dank Tank offerings, this beer will be sold on draft and in 22 oz. bottles in Alabama and throughout the Southeast wherever you normally find SweetWater offerings. I will of course update you here and on Facebook and Twitter whenever more details surface. Until then, make sure to keep your eyes peeled because you never want to miss an opportunity to pick up Some Strange. Prost!
