Impeachment was a draft-only imperial wheat ale brewed by Spartanburg’s RJ Rockers. But sadly, Impeachment is dead. However, Peachy King will arise in its place beginning in March and – for the first time – in bottles.
Brewery reps told me last fall the name “Impeachment” was met with mixed signals among drinkers. The name came from an online contest the brewery ran and it was never meant to be a jab, but with it joining their expanded four-pack limited-release lineup, RJR chose to rebrand the beer something less political. And so, Peachy King took the throne.
On Tuesday, the new label artwork was reveled along with release details. The 9% imperial ale brewed with spices and peaches – a big brother to now-year-round Son of a Peach – will be available in four packs for the first time and on store shelves in early March.
