del Lago Summer IPA to launch this week

del Lago Resort & Casino is about to add one more unique feature to its repertoire.

As it continues its promise to partner with local businesses, the resort is thrilled to announce it has joined forces with local brewery CB Craft Brewers to launch a custom India Pale Ale.

On June 22nd, the resort and casino will introduce del Lago Summer IPA — just in time to celebrate the official kickoff of summer.

The new beer is a light golden IPA, light-bodied with a slight smoothness that is met by notes of citrus and tropical fruits from the Galena and Citra hops. Sweet orange peel is added to the whirlpool to emphasize the pleasant citrus flavor and aroma. Del Lago Summer IPA is available on tap at the casino’s entertainment venue and bar, The Vine.

The del Lago Summer IPA will officially launch at a release party open to the public at The Vine from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 22nd.

Guests will be the first to try the new IPA and participate in gift giveaways, try drink specials and listen to live music. The event will also celebrate the kickoff of del Lago’s Craft Beer Thursday Flight Night. From 6 to 11 p.m. every Thursday, The Vine will offer discounts on flights and drafts, as well as tastings by local breweries and exciting giveaways.

“The vision for del Lago Resort & Casino has always been to embrace and promote all that the region has to offer, including local breweries, wineries, businesses and tourist destinations,” Executive Vice President and General Manager Jeff Babinski said. “A partnership with CB Craft Brewers was a natural fit as they are a well-respected and local craft brewer that truly understands our brand and desire to offer a unique and flavorful experience for our guests.”

“I am thrilled to have partnered with del Lago Resort & Casino to bring resort guests a unique India Pale Ale designed especially for them,” CB Craft Brewers Founder and President Mike Alcorn said. “In the 20 years we have been brewing, del Lago is the first resort we have partnered with to create a custom private-label beer. It truly was an honor to help the management team develop this incredible IPA we are all proud of.”

Exactly five months to the day after del Lago Resort & Casino opened its doors to the public, its highly anticipated hotel and Spa del Lago are set to open. The hotel is now accepting reservations and the spa is accepting appointments for its opening day — July 1 and beyond. The hotel and spa are opening two weeks ahead of schedule.
