DROP THE NEEDLE WITH THE SUMMIT BREWING HOUSE PARTY VARIETY BOX
Drop the needle. Keep the vinyl spinning all night long with the Summit Brewing House Party Variety Box Vol. 2.
It’s that time of year again. The weather begins to colder, night sets in a little earlier and we begin to trade our outside lounging for indoor gatherings. But, as with everything in 2020, our house parties may not look like what they used to. Instead of dancing cheek-to-cheek, we may be dancing on our own. However, Summit Brewing is here to ensure that while you may be dancing with yourself, at the very least you won’t be dancing empty-handed.
Summit House Party Variety Box Vol. 2 is returning for its second year with some great brews included.
Track 1. Don’t Stand So Close To Me
Of all our beers in the House Party Variety Box, our Summit Sága IPA just may be the only one aggressive enough to call out any party-goer not abiding by the 6-feet rule. With its combination of Rakau, Citra, Centennial, Amarillo and Bravo hops, our signature IPA is assertive and bold. While this epic hop mix creates bitter flavors, tropical aromas of kiwi, passion fruit and apricot add a balanced sweetness. So, while Sága IPA may not hesitate to tell you to back up, they’ll still do it nicely.
Description: Named after the Norse goddess Sága, drinking companion of the God Odin. Featuring a divine tropical fruit hop aroma and clean, assertive bitterness.
Hops: Centennial, Amarillo, Citra, Bravo
Malts: 2-Row Pale, Crystal
Track 2. Tubthumbing
Fans of the 90’s band Chumbawamba may recall this hit in which the singer shares stories of “taking a lager drink.” Well, we’ve got that covered. The lone lager in our House Party Variety Pack, Summit Keller Pils, is a lager you definitely want to drink. Highly awarded and favored among our brewing staff, Keller Pils is a traditional, unfiltered German Pils. Light flavors of citrus, honey and melon blend with a slight floral notes and bready aromas to create a clean, balanced finish. It’s so good, it may leave you singing songs that remind you of the good times!
Summit Keller Pils
Description: Brewed with traditional Tettnang hops and the modern German variety Huell Melon, Keller Pils offers spicy floral notes, balanced citrus bitterness, and malty-sweet and honey undertones from Weyermann Barke Pilsner Malt.
Hops: Tettnang, Huell Melon
Malts: Weyermann Barke Pilsner
Track 3. I Will Survive
After a brief summer hiatus, Summit Great Northern Porter has returned! The embodiment of this ballad, Great Northern Porter not only is coming back after a break but also is one of just two beers we continue to brew from our original 1986 line-up (Summit Extra Pale Ale being the other). This slightly sweet, slightly bitter brew maintains its roasted malt flavors with notes of caramel, coffee and chocolate. We are switching things up slightly, as this porter will now only be available in cans. Still the same great taste but with a sleek new look, Great Northern Porter is currently available exclusively in the House Party Variety Pack. In October, look for it in it’s own packaging!

Hops: Northern Brewer, Fuggle, Cascade
Malts: 2-Row Pale, Caramel, Chocolate, Crystal
Track 4. Someday, We’ll Be Together
As fans of our Summit Dark Infusion Coffee Milk Stout know, it’s important not to give up hope that one day things will return to normal. Originally brewed as part of our Unchained Series in 2016, Dark Infusion is the only Unchained beer to ever make a comeback. It was so popular in fact, it’s been brewed three times since. In its fourth reincarnation, we’ve changed up the recipe slightly. This year, the cold-brew coffee is provided by Minneapolis’ Big Watt Beverage. Available exclusively in the House Party Variety Pack, this brew is a reminder to us all that while we may have to wait – longer than we may want to – we will be together again.
Summit Dark Infusion Coffee Milk Stout
Description: A rich, full-bodied imperial milk stout with sweet, roasted notes from six specialty malts, Dark Infusion features kettle additions of lactose for additional sweetness and body.
Hops: UK Golding, Jester
Malts: Rahr Pale, Simpson’s Brown, Briess Light Chocolate, Briess Midnight Wheat, Crisp Torrified Wheat, Flaked Oats
