Inspired by Montauk’s Best-Selling Beer, Major Wave Chaser Will Quench Growing Thirst for Full Flavors and High Alcohol
NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Montauk Brewing Company (“Montauk Brewing” or “Montauk”), the leading and fastest-selling craft brewer in Metro New York1, known for its exceptional craft beers and a subsidiary of Tilray Brands, Inc. (“Tilray” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: TLRY and TSX: TLRY), announced today the launch of Major Wave Chaser Double India Pale Ale (IPA), a high-octane version of Montauk’s best-selling Wave Chaser IPA brewed to satisfy the strong demand for full-flavor, high-alcohol beers.
An approachable beer with endless tropical and pine flavors, Major Wave Chaser [9.2% alcohol by volume (ABV)] maintains the popular characteristics of Wave Chaser, with a bigger punch. It is available in single 19.2-ounce cans and 15-packs of 19.2-ounce cans.
“Craft beer drinkers continue to seek out high-alcohol and single-serve beers, and we’re excited to break into these white-hot categories with a hopped-up version of our most popular beer. Major Wave Chaser captures the flavors and aromas that made Wave Chaser such a hit, and it’s the perfect ‘step-up’ for when the occasion calls for bigger flavors and higher ABV,” said Ty Gilmore, President of U.S. Beers for Tilray Brands.
The release of Montauk’s new flagship beer comes as the New York based brewery begins a highly anticipated expansion beyond the Northeast. Montauk Brewing arrived in Georgia this month and will announce new distribution deals in other major markets later this fall.
