Busted Sandal Headlights IPA Benefits Susan G. Komen

Screen Shot 2014-01-14 at 10.05.53 AMSan Antonio based Busted Sandal Brewing Company is brewing up a beer for a cure with their latest release, Headlights IPA.

The brew comes as a result of a collaboration with Vera Deckard, founder and brewer of upcoming San Antonio Brewing Company, and 25 percent of proceeds from the aptly named beer will be donated to Susan G. Komen San Antonio.

“It was great brewing and collaborating with Busted Sandal Brewing Company,” Deckard said, in a recent press release. “It was so much fun and gave me a wonderful perspective on what it’s like to brew in a [brewery] the size of theirs…It was an amazing opportunity to help support Susan G. Komen San Antonio.”

Donation boxes will also be provided at locations selling the beer to allow their customers to donate extra funds toward the cause.

“It was a very special collaboration and means a lot to us,” Michael DiCicco, founder of Busted Sandal Brewing said.

According to the press release, “The Headlights IPA hop profile is very unique using New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops which impart a white wine characteristic give it a Sauvignon Blanc “crushed grape” flavor and a nice citrus aroma is provided by whole-leaf Citra hops. From the base malt sourced from France to the Munich and organic caramel malt, a delicate malt profile is formed. Combine that with oat flakes to provide a silky smooth mouth feel, and a blend of yeasts to impart a tart but clean finish, Headlights IPA is designed to be welcoming and approachable to everyone.”

Headlights IPA clocks in at 6.6 percent ABV and 51 IBUs. It is now available in San Antonio and the surrounding area.
