Pewaukee, Wis. – To mark the 400th anniversary of Plymouth, MA, Guest Brewer has partnered with Mayflower Brewing to bring 400, a limited-edition Double IPA to 22 new states. Released this January, 400 will be brewed throughout 2020 for this anniversary year. A limited amount of beer is available now through April for pre-sale in select Guest Brewer markets. Before joining Guest Brewer, this limited release beer was only available in the six markets where Mayflower currently distributes.
“By offering Mayflower 400 to new states outside of our limited distribution in New England, we’re helping to broadcast one of the most iconic stories in American history to the rest of the country through our beer,” says Drew Brosseau, founder and president of Mayflower Brewing. “ The 400t h anniversary will be a major event in Plymouth this year, celebrating the Pilgrim’s daring journey to the New World, commemorating the founding of the town, and paying tribute to the Native Americans who were here before them.”
Hazy and opaque, 400 features a blend of Columbus, Amarillo, and Mosaic hops including a generous double dry hop, creating aromas of citrus rind, ripe mango and grapefruit zest. At 8% ABV there is minimal bitterness and a slight sweetness on the finish.
Mayflower has been counting up with beers 398 and 399 the past several years, and now the 400th anniversary of America’s hometown is here. Highly rated, Mayflower Brewing Co. has won a number of awards including Silver at Great British Beer Fest and is highly rated with a score over 4 on UnTappd.
