June, 2017, Tampa, FL – As a way to celebrate their independence, Coppertail Brewing Co. of Ybor City is offering an Industrial Beer Amnesty Program. Patrons can bring a can or bottle of industrial production beer to the brewery tasting room and trade it for a fresh bottle of Independent Pilsner anytime on Saturday, July 1st and Sunday, July 2nd. Coppertail will be offering a similar trade in offer at participating retailers.
“We are not just a craft brewer,” said Kent Bailey, Coppertail’s president and co-founder. “We are a fiercely independent craft brewery. We are free from outside control. We make the day to day decisions which allows us to brew our beer our way.”
Coppertail’s Independent Pilsner (5.1 ABV) is a traditional German Pilsner brewed with top quality Pilsen-style malted barley, German Fantasia and TNT hops, and it has lots of flavor. It features subtle bready notes, a crisp hop character and a clean finish. Most importantly, Independent Pilsner contains absolutely no rice, corn, syrups or other adjuncts. The brewing team, led by Brewmaster Casey Hughes, believes in time-honored, old-world production techniques. They utilize a natural carbonation process, use whole leaf hops and do not filter – because amazing things come to those who wait. Independent is available in the Coppertail taproom, at taprooms across the state and most retail outlets including Publix supermarkets.
Keep an eye on Coppertail’s Facebook page for an updated list of where to trade up for Independent pilsner in Florida. There are participating taprooms in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Miami, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton and other locations to be added weekly.
