“Raw power got a magic touch, Raw power is much too much; Happiness is guaranteed; It was made for you and me…”
-from “Raw Power” by The Stooges
PRESS RELEASE / November 14, 2019 (Salem, MA) – Raw Power SMALL IPA, Notch’s first new year-round twelve-pack beer in nearly three years will be available in liquor stores, bars, and restaurants starting N ovember 11, 2020. The new release has been tested in Notch’s Salem Tap Room over the past three years while fine-tuning the New England-style hazy & hoppy profile. Raw Power is citrus-forward with a strong tangerine character and a subtle yet substantive malt presence contributed by Golden Promise, a legendary British malt.
“We haven’t brought a new 12 ounce beer to market since Infinite Jest 3 years ago,” says Chris Lohring, Notch Founder “At Notch, we strive to make flavorful, yet accessible beer for everyday social drinking; the kind of beer you buy in a 12 pack and keep in your fridge, you take to parties or camping. Raw Power hits that mark with its ease of availability and a suggested price point of
$15.99 per twelve pack.” Raw Power serves as a hazy, juicy foil to the balanced, bright Left of the Dial IPA, offering a new school compliment to a more classic version of the world’s second most popular beer style.
Raw Power rollouts will begin N ovember 11th and Notch’s sales team will be hosting back to back launch parties on Monday, November 18:
Miracle of Science, 321 Mass Ave, Cambridge, 5p-7p Beacon Hill Pub, 149 Charles Street, Boston, 7:30p-10:00p
