Today Sheetz, a major Mid-Atlantic restaurant and convenience chain, built even more excitement for the upcoming unofficial start of summer by announcing the release of its largest scale limited-edition craft beer to date: Project I Scream, Brew Scream. Perfect on a hot day or poured over vanilla ice cream, this handcrafted beer is a strawberry and banana milkshake IPA brewed in partnership with Goose Island Beer Company.
Available at 489 Sheetz stores across Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia, Project I Scream, Brew Scream will go on sale at 4 p.m. EST on Friday, May 28, 2021. Each store will carry approximately 30 4-packs and will be available while supplies last. It will not be restocked once sold out.
Brewed with Sheetz Bros. strawberry and banana puree, this new milkshake IPA is a light and fruity beer with a kiss of hop to balance the strawberry sweetness. Pairing best with sunscreen, flip flops and a pair of shades, four packs of sixteen ounce cans of Project I Scream, Brew Scream will retail for only $7.99.
