Atlanta brewery Second Self Beer Company will release Triforce IPA (6.1% ABV, 45 IBU), a slightly hazy IPA inspired by an iconic video game series tomorrow, Saturday, January 13th. Brewed to embody the sacred relic’s three pieces: power, courage and wisdom, Triforce IPA is made with the triforce of malts (oats, wheat and barley) and hops (Mosaic, Amarillo and Cascade). These combine to create a unique IPA that has the aroma and flavor of papaya, mango and other tropical fruits, with a soft, flavorful mouthfeel to balance this truly inspired beer.
Suggested pairings for the beer include tacos, barbecue, fresh vegetables, ceviche, fromageblanc and magical potions. The graphic label plays on the classic video game and was designed by artist Keith P. Rein, who also created the popular artwork for Second Self’s limited-edition beer: Manic Pixie Dream Beer #1.
To celebrate Triforce’s debut, Second Self is hosting a release party tomorrow, January 13th, from noon to 9pm at the brewery’s taproom in Atlanta’s Westside neighborhood. Visitors can play video games, be the first to taste Triforce IPA and enjoy Triforce tacos from the Real Mexican Vittles. Triforce IPA 6-packs and cases will be available for to-go purchase. Guests are encouraged to show up in costume, and the costume contest winner will receive a Triforce IPA prize pack. The party will also kick off an epic Triforce IPA QUEST around Atlanta bars, restaurants and stores. Maps and compasses needed to embark on the quest will be available at the launch party.

Triforce IPA will be available on draft and in cans at Second Self’s taproom in Atlanta (1317 Logan Circle NW) and at stores, bars and restaurants throughout Georgia and Alabama beginning January 13th.
