To celebrate the Miami Hurricanes’ success this football season, J. Wakefield Brewing will create a new India pale ale called Turnover. The name references the 10-karat-gold, Cuban link Turnover Chain that has been used this season to reward defensive players for forcing an interception or touchdown.
The beer will be a Northeast IPA, with citrus and floral notes.
Wakefield says he plans to brew the 30-barrel batch on Monday, Nov. 27. It should be ready the second week of December, and the Wynwood brewery is set to host a release party on Saturday, Dec. 9.
The IPA will be brewed in partnership with former Miami Hurricanes linebacker D.J. Williams, who was a member of the 2001-2002 national championship team.
The Turnover IPA will be available on draft and in cans. Wakefield says about 900 four-packs will be sold, with each costing $16. He says 90 kegs will be distributed across the tricounty area.
J. Wakefield Brewing is located at 120 NW 24th St., in Miami. Call 786-253-7779 or go to JWakefieldBrewing.com.
