….and the re-release of Roastmaster Blonde!

Beatnik, a loyal crowd favorite, is delivering a beautiful blend of different barrel aged stouts aged together to give an unique twist to traditional barrel and stout flavors.

This is a family friendly event, so bring the kiddos along. Galveston Island has a huge playground on site, with tables close by and is minutes from the beach if you want to get the full Galveston experience.

To top off the summer fun, Galveston Island is doing a special Willy Wonka style giveaway associated with this beer. Does that mean I will own the brewery if I win? Nice try, but no. If you find a gold lid in your purchased six pack, bring the can with you to the brewery taproom in Galveston and you will be entered to win a private party in the new production facility and a $500 gift card to spend at Galveston Island Brewing. That’s a lot of beer and goodies!

Golden lids can be found on purchased 6 packs of Hefen-A Coconut. Looks for the QR code for more information!

Coconut Hefen-A pours beautifully with golden caramel almost copper tone and the tropical aroma hits your nose as you pour. The banana presence on flavor comes from the clove notes from this classic style and the coconut scent is very vibrant throughout. Quite frankly, Hefen-A smells like a lush tropical paradise in a glass. The banana and sweetness of the initial sip are fully loud and proud while the coconut makes a delightful compliment on this crisp beer. Galveston Island Brewing achieves a delicate harmony of all the tropical notes of a Hefeweizen with a pop of coconut to complete the tropical feel. Because this beer is so crushable, I was able to enjoy multiples way too easily and it makes for a perfect beach, fishing, poolside, or boating beer. You can find Hefen-A at all the places you will find amazing craft beer like H‑E‑B, Kroger, Specs, Total wine, and local beer cellar stores.

Until then, best of luck finding a golden lid and winning a private party with one of the coolest craft breweries on the Island.

Happy Anniversary Galveston Island Brewing! Cheers to good island times!
