Melvin Heyzeus! Mexican Lager

JACKSON, WY (August 2, 2017) — Fiesta, forever! Come on and session along with Melvin’s Mexican style lager, Hey Zeus!  Halfway between awesome and fantastico, Heyzeus delivers canned lightning with all-day drinkability and the great quality that beer geeks expect from the great Cerveceria de Melvin.  

Previously only available on tap, this lightning in a can couldn’t be contained! Thanks to nanotech and a nod from the beer gods, Melvin canned this moist miracle.  Using its expanding distribution network, Melvin brings Heyzeus to the masses of mortals thirsting for madness. Launching this month, Heyzeus is now available in convenient 12-ounce can six-packs.

“Step aside “Rosé All Day,” there’s a new day drinking compadre in town and his name is Heyzeus!” said Jeremy Tofte, Co-Founder, Melvin Brewing. “Crisp, refreshing and clocking in at a ridiculously sessionable ABV of 4.0%, I drink the living hell out of this beer.” 

Melvin Brewing, a past title holder of the Great American Beer Festival’s Small Brewpub Brewer of the Year, now gives fans of their Heyzeus Mexican-style lager a reason to throw the toga fiesta they’ve always dreamed of.  With bright floral aromatics, a dry, and balanced finish, this light-bodied, slightly tart lager was designed for easy drinking with your closest amigos. As Jeremy puts it, “Check your baggage at the door, because Heyzeus ain’t got time for Debbie Downers.” 

Now available for distribution in Washington, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, Southern California, and Wyoming, Heyzeus joins the growing Melvin Brewing portfolio craft beers available for retail sale in cans, including 2x4 DIPA, Melvin IPA, Hubert MPA and Killer Bees.
