NOW LANDING: 21st Amendment Brewery — Down To Earth

NOW LANDING: DOWN TO EARTH, A NEW BEER
WITH A FAMILIAR CHIMP

SAN FRANCISCO (March 19, 2015) – In 2011, 21st Amend­ment Brew­ery launched HAM, the space chimp, into orbit with the release of one of the first and orig­i­nal ses­sion ales, Bit­ter Amer­i­can. Plucked from the jun­gle floor, HAM was tasked with the impor­tant mis­sion of bring­ing a beer with all the hop aroma and fla­vor of an IPA, and only 4.4% alco­hol, to the peo­ple of Amer­ica. The mis­sion was accom­plished and now 21A co-founders Nico Frec­cia and Shaun O’Sullivan are bring­ing HAM back to Earth for the national debut of Down to Earth, Ses­sion IPA, replac­ing Bit­ter Amer­i­can in 21st Amendment’s year round line-up.
