Kush Taps Gravity and Cigar Collaboration "Gin and Juice" Thursday

If you ever find yourself rolling down NW Second Avenue on the edge of Wynwood, stop by Kush to sip a little Gin and Juice, the collaboration beer brewed by Cigar City Brewing and Miami's Gravity Brewlab.

Gin and Juice, an American strong ale, will be on tap at Kush this Thursday beginning at 7 p.m. The keg will probably not last until 6 in the morning, however, because it will be tapped by then and Kush will be closed.

Gin and Juice is an American strong ale brewed by Gravity's Roberto Tejon and Cigar City's Tim Ogden last July. Topping out at 8.5 percent ABV, the beer is aged in Ransom Old Tom gin barrels for several months.

They used Australian galaxy hops (because obviously) to produce a fruity/citrusy aroma, two-row malt, then aged with passionfruit and mango for 45 days. After the first aging process, they aged again in the gin barrels for about another three months. Now it's being served (not with a cherry on top) at the Cigar City Brewpub in Tampa.

Four kegs are heading to South Florida: one each for Kush, MC Kitchen, Laser Wolf in Fort Lauderdale, and Mendez Fuel. Each keg is approximately five gallons.
