If you didn’t get the hell off the beach this past Labor Day weekend to buy your stash of Chris Christie-themed Private Beach American Blonde Ale, you missed it.
Icarus Brewing Company of Lakewood brewed and designed a beer themed for one of the Jersey Shore’s most recent pop culture icons, former Governor Chris Christie.
Who can forget the day the big guy shut down all of the state parks and beaches then spent the weekend on his own private beach at the Governor’s Mansion at Island Beach State Park. It’s the meme that keeps on giving and now it’s the beer that has completely sold out.
“We’re heading into our Labor Day Weekend can release and we know sometimes beach access is hard to come by. To ensure you’re not completely shut out, we canned up a Brand New American Blonde Ale: Private Beach,” the company said ahead of the sale. “Private Beach is 4.1% American Blonde Ale brewed with American 2 Row Barley, lightly hopped with Citra then delicately Dry Hopped with New Zealand Motueka. Bringing all the easy drinking vibes you want from a Blonde with just a hint of citrus and lime notes, no one can prohibit your tastebuds from enjoying a Private Beach this holiday weekend!”
Private Beach dropped last Wednesday but the line was completely sold out by Sunday. It’s not sure if Icarus will make a second batch or not at this time.
