Carolina Brewery was founded in 1995 and is based out of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Over the past 20 years, Carolina Brewery has been awarded 79 national and international medals for quality and trueness to style for their craft beers.
The VENYU Triple-S Invitational was founded in 2006 and is hosted every year in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. Over the past 9 years, the VENYU Triple-S Invitational has grown to become the #1 event in professional kiteboarding with 40 riders from 15 different countries and $40,000 in prize money.
This year’s VENYU Triple-S Invitational is scheduled for May 31st – June 6th, 2014.
With North Carolina being such a hotbed for both craft beer and kiteboarding, it was only a matter of time before the two met for a collaboration to highlight their combined talents and international reputations.
Carolina Brewery is proud to announce the limited run release of their newest craft beer, Triple-S Lager. This new craft beer will be available May 7th through June 15th 2014, wherever you enjoy Carolina Brewery on draft.
“Triple-S lager is smooth, satisfying and delicious. This thirst quenching beer is full flavored yet light and easy on the palette. By using the finest German malt and hops we have crafted a sparkling amber brew with a pleasing malty aroma. This Vienna style lager clocks in at just 4.5% ABV with 20 IBU’s. The cool fermented brewing style has European roots but became the popular beer of choice in Mexico when it was introduced there by Austrian brewers. It’s the perfect beer to cool down with after an active day on the water. For best results serve Triple-S Lager ice-cold with a lime and a friend!” Jon Connolly – Carolina Brewery – Director of Brewery Operations
“Having surfed for so many years in Cape Hatteras, I can’t tell you how excited we are to be part of the kiteboarding scene there and to make a beer that will be enjoyed by so many people from all over the world at this year’s VENYU Triple-S Invitational. Having brewed so many different beers over the past 20 years, this was a really fun project for me personally, because we got to sit down and ask ourselves, “What’s going to taste the best after a long day at the beach and in the water?” Whether it’s kiting, surfing or even fishing, Triple-S Lager is the perfect ‘post session’ beer.” – Robert Poitras – Carolina Brewery – Owner and Founder
“We’re excited to have Carolina Brewery be such an integral part of the VENYU Triple-S Invitational. The social scene at the Triple-S is just as big as the action on the water, featuring 9 different live bands throughout the week. These Triple-S parties are open to the public and hosted at an incredible waterfront venue. I can’t imagine a better place to enjoy the new Triple-S Lager brewed by Carolina Brewery.” – Trip Forman – VENYU Triple-S Invitational – Co-Founder and Co-Director
