Are you ready for a new version of Juggling Act? This will be available tomorrow in the Idiom Brewing Co. taproom. We made this one perfect for the warmer weather. Watermelon dominates the flavor profile with more subdued notes from the kiwi, dragonfruit, and prickly pear.

Originally in our 2nd anniversary pack as a smoothie seltzer, she's come back as her dragon fruit/kiwi/granola form, but this time as a heavily fruited ice cream sour." 🍌'Bananakin Skywalker' "Not to be outdone by Karen, Bananakin comes back, too, in all of his banana puddingy goodness, just without the stout backdrop." 🥛 'Bantha Milk' All of the beautiful blue juice you'd expect from a Bantha, but in refreshingly pleasing blue raspberry/coconut cream form. 🧃 'Jabba Juice: Ecto Cooler (Tangerine/Orange)' Reimagined in ice cream sour form. No Klatooine paddy frogs were harmed or used in production. 🍻 Also new: 'Again!!!' Lager w/ Lime & Lager Life: Maibock! 📸 Chris Sands of The UnCapped Podcast
