Caraluzzi’s Launches Sunsational Summer Ale with Reverie Brewing

NEWTOWN - Caraluzzi’s announces the arrival of their new, limited release, local summer ale, Caraluzzi’s Sunsational Summer Ale, crafted in collaboration with Reverie Brewing Co. in Newtown CT. The brewing process took approximately 3 weeks and resulted in a deliciously crisp wheat beer that’s hitting the shelves just in time for the warm weather.

Caraluzzi’s Sunsational Summer Ale is delicately infused with oranges to bring a pleasant citrus flavor to a slightly sweet malt body with just a hint of hop bitterness for balance. This local brew pairs fabulously with grilled steaks and burgers, steamed littleneck clams, lobster rolls, grilled chicken and so much more!

Collaborating with Caraluzzi's was fun and inspiring. It's great to ideate about beer recipes with a team that sells a lot of beer but also works with a ton of local businesses and great quality products. It allows you to find something that has a mass appeal but still can be fun to craft. Looking forward to seeing the response on the beer!”

Frank Lockwood, Head Brewer and Co-Founder, Reverie Brewing

You can find Caraluzzi’s Sunsational Summer Ale sold in 4 packs in all 4 Caraluzzi’s Wine and Spirits locations in Bethel, Danbury, Wilton and Ridgefield, as well as Caraluzzi’s Newtown Market and Caraluzzi’s Bethel Market. If you are looking for a great night out, Reverie Brewing has it available on tap for a limited time.   

“Frank and the team at Reverie Brewing were an absolute pleasure to work with on the project.  His passion and attention to detail shines thru in his efforts and no surprise their craft brewery is expanding. We’re thrilled with the final product and excited about the opportunity to do more with them.”
