    Jolly Pumpkin Takes to the Hawaiian Islands for Latest Collaborative Beer: Sobrehumano Palena 'Ole

    (DEXTER, Mich) – Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales has released its latest collaboration beer – Sobrehumano Palena 'Olo – a red ale brewed with liliko'i and Michigan cherries – brewed with Maui Brewing Company. Brewers Ron Jeffries (Jolly Pumpkin) and John Walsh (Maui Brewing) spent time in each other’s breweries earlier this year to craft this ale. Both versions of Sobrehumano Palena 'Ole were introduced at SAVOR, an annual craft beer and food exposition, held in Washington DC each June.

    Maui Brewing Company used standard fermentation to produce approximately 4000 cases of cans and 80 barrels in draft for its version. This is the brewery’s first collaboration beer.

    The Jolly Pumpkin version is an open-fermented, barrel aged and bottle conditioned sour ale, using naturally occurring wild yeasts. Approximately 850 cases of 750ml bottles and 20 draft barrels have been produced by Jolly Pumpkin. This brew is available in draft and bottles, with special glassware, at the Jolly Pumpkin Pub and Cafe in Downtown Ann Arbor. It has also just launched nationally and will be shipped to Michigan wholesalers in immediate future. It will also be available for sampling at the 15th Annual Michigan Summer Beer Festival, July 27-28, in Ypsilanti.

    Maui Brewing Company has built a reputation for creating handcrafted beers brewed using their finest natural ingredients. Founded in 2005, Maui Brewing is one of Hawaii’s fastest growing companies and the island’s only microbrewery. All beers from Maui Brewing are packaged in cans, which can be recycled and aid in sustainining the state’s vibrant tourism industry.

    I managed to score a 6-pack of the Maui version. Super-interesting, but not really my cup of tea, so I've got 4 of them if anyone's dying to try it. (Yeah, I gave it a second chance). Not trying to turn this into a trading thread, but shoot me a BM if you're dying to try it and we can figure something out.

    I hope this is as good as everybody says, dropping $20 for one bottle was tough.

They have a habit of keeping the good stuff in the back (which is nice for regulars like me, but otherwise not so much). Prices are a bit high, they got 5 or 6 taps always going. I like it a lot.
