So, what’s in a name anyway?

Those of you familiar with Neshaminy Creek, and some might say lucky, know that a few years back we made some t-shirts with some ridiculous artwork of our friend Zeke riding a motorcycle and being, well, a badass. The caricature was intended, as was the sentiment.

If you’ve been around the Philly craft beer and home brewing scene for a while it would be hard to miss Zeke. Always the most charming and warm-hearted person in the room, Zeke is just one of those people that always has a smile on his face and make everything in life that much better. A few years ago we were fortunate enough to be able to bring Zeke on board as a Sales Rep, and he’s faithfully and diligently represented Neshaminy Creek in the Bucks/Montco/NE Philly area spreading the Neshaminy Creek gospel since.

Beer names are always fun topics of conversation around the brewery, and Zeke and Destroy more or less rolled off the tongue of our most Non-Heinous of dudes, Colin Shawcross, during one of these regular conversations, and thus this beer was born. Colin originally suggested a Mexican Lager, but since Zeke is the furthest thing from a watered down Lager that is usually accompanied by a slice of lime, we decided to go in a more appropriate direction instead. Once again, our incredibly talented Graphic Designer and Illustrator JP Flexner captured the spirit of Zeke in this beer’s label artwork.

Zeke & Destroy is an Imperial American Amber Ale brewed with 2-Row Barley, biscuit-like Victory malt, and a touch of Chocolate and Carared for body and color. With hints of honey and bread crumbs, hopped with Citra, Calypso, and Denali lending notes of orange zest, mango, and key lime pie, this 7.6% ABV brew is perfect for the chilly Fall weather that’s at our doorstep.

Limited draft will be hitting select accounts (see below) in the coming days, and will also be available starting today at the brewery Tap Room and Borough Brewhouse in Jenkintown.  Cans will be available next Thursday, October 26th at 5PM in Croydon and Jenkintown. Only 50 cases were canned, so we’re going to go with a two six-pack limit, $22/each. This limited brew won’t last long.
