    Two replies in and nobody is calling this a #gimmick. I'm impressed.

    John, Sam, make a Pop Tart beer! No one will bash you for it!

    Lord have mercy....these releases need to stop. My wallet will thank them yet again. I eat pop tarts with beer kind of often this is crazy.

    This sounds like something Rogue would do.

    Has anybody heard if this brewery only release? I'm just wondering if I will see distribution in Ohio. It sounds really interesting.

    Should probably work on improving their standard line instead of this stupidity. Most overrated brewery in CA.

    People seem to be assuming that pop-tarts are actually in this beer. Nowhere, anywhere at all, does anything, anywhere, say that there are pop-tarts in this beer. The brewery is releasing it as "homage" to pop-tarts. The facility 21st Amendement is currently using was once used by Kellog's.

    This beer has been approved for sale by Whole Foods. If there were pop-tarts in the beer, Whole Foods would not sell it.

    I really don't give a fuck about 21st Amendment, and if there were pop-tarts in this beer, I again, would not give a fuck (but I would be more intrigued than by what I am predicting to be an utterly forgettable red IPA). But what does make me angry is all the news articles that pop up when you search for this beer, obviously written by people who know next to nothing about beer, fluffing together an article with no substance, talking about how you can now drink your pop-tarts and offering cliched lines such as "I'll have a pop-tart flavored beer, said no one ever" (it's not pop-tart flavored).

    I've been wrong about more important things before, and if it comes out that carboard pastries are actually in this beer (which I am all but certain they are not) I'll eat my crow flavored pop-tart. But can we at least wait until the beer comes out before we jump the snark?

    Love good hoppy red ales/IPAs, and big cans are great for backcountry outings, so...fingers crossed this is tasty.

    The beer's COLA (#15156001000412) has it listed with the TTB as a "Class 902" which is simply "Ale" - not under the typical "906 MALT BEVERAGES SPECIALITIES - FLAVORED" class that is used for beers flavored with non-traditional or unusual ingredients, spices, fruit, flavors, etc. Here's the description of the beer from the can label (adjusted for legibility):

    Only if it were Rogue, everyone would be talking about how stupid it is.

    so this ISNT pop tart inspired or gimmicky, just a name cause of the building they are brewing out of now.

    topic title is misleading.

    A beer that tastes like a pop tart? I'll pass.

    I'd give this a try. Per the description, it doesn't sound like it's going to be a mess of sweetness as the name might lead one to believe

    Not entirely sure I understand the backlash here. I mean, a peanut butter and jelly porter is cool...an IPA brewed with habanero peppers is rad...a beer mimicking the flavors of key lime pie is interesting...but we're drawing the line at a beer inspired by the flavors of a pop-tart? Seems odd to me.

    Now, would I seek this beer out? Probably not, just because I'm not a huge fan of 21st Amendment (Brew Free or Die aside), but I'd happily give it a shot if spotted at my local beer shop.

    did you even read the description? it sure sounds like they are trying to mimic the taste profile of a strawberry Pop Tart, minus getting sewed by Kellog's.
