Faction Bottles are Here!!

Your eyes do not deceive you. That image up there is a label for a bottled Faction beer. This is a day we've dreamed about since we first partnered up with Rodger, Claudia and the rest of the Faction crew. For the first time, you can pop a Faction beer into your fridge and not have to squeeze your eggs and milk in with several cubic feet of stainless steel.

It's an exciting time, made more exciting by the fact that Faction has bottled up four or their tastiest beers and done so in versatile 500ml bottles that work well as a single serving or as a share-able. We're beyond happy to be bringing you bottles of Alameda's finest for the first time. Check 'em out:

Now available:

Flagship Pale
The introduction of Faction's Pale Ale quickly established them as masters of the pale, hoppy ale. It's a stellar example of the modern American version of the style--lean and drinkable, loaded with explosive aromatics from Simcoe, Mosaic, and CTZ hops. It's punchy and pungent and perfect.

Now available in 500ml bottles (and kegs!)

Imperial Stout
A smooth, complex imperial stout that doesn't go completely over-the-top at 8.5% ABV. Expect layered flavors of dates, plums, and very dark chocolate with a licoricey finishing bite.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Penske File
Penske File is another pale ale, this time featuring the bright, juicy tones of Mosaic and Equinox hops in harmony. Perfectly balanced and crazy crushable.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Spring IPA
Faction's Spring seasonal IPA has just been released, also featuring the delicious one-two punch of Mosaic and Equinox. This beer is a bit bigger, weighing in at 6.8% ABV, with a little more heft behind the wall of hoppy goodness. A delight!
Now available in 500ml bottles.
