For the past few years, Holy City has brewed a different take on Slam in advance of the annual tennis tournament. The beer is brewed specifically for the tournament (and will be available on draft at the event) with a small amount making it to outside accounts.
The 2012 version was an American pale ale, followed by a hoppier version brewed with wheat in 2013. This year, Holy City will take its Old Man Helles and added lime, creating a light, citrusy lager for the tournament. You’ll find it at the brewery this Thursday – details on the launch event here – and the tournament March 29 – April 6.
