Green Flash Road Warrior IPA at Carnitas' Snack ShackCarnitas’ Snack Shack North Park is proud to introduce Green Flash Brewery’s new ROAD WARRIOR™ Imperial Rye India Pale Ale. San Diego, be the first to try this local craft beer!

“It’s a really cool thing that we’ll be the first to have Road Warrior. I’m honored – and excited,” said SnackShack owner and Executive Chef Hanis Cavin. “It’s brewed with rye, so we’re using it in a new sausage, mustards and glazes just for the event!”

The SnackShack’s Chef Max Bonacci will be collaborating with Chef Carlos Anthony of Salt & Cleaver on two Green Flash inspired dishes:

Road Warrior “Rye PA” smoked bratwurst – made with Road Warrior IPA-infused pork jus, roasted garlic Oaxacan dark chocolate and arbol chilis. We’ll serve up these sausage sandwiches with a Road Warrior mustard while they last from The Pig Pen, the SnackShack’s outdoor patio bar. Chefs Carlos and Max will be live tweeting the sausage making at Salt & Cleaver on Tuesday April 29, starting at 6pm.

Smokehouse Kings “Rye PA” glazed brisket – tender smoked brisket glazed in Road Warrior IPA, served open face on white bread.

Come hungry and stay for awhile!

ROAD WARRIOR is a new Imperial Rye India Pale Ale from Green Flash, brewed with Columbus hops, rich crystal and rye malts, then dry-hopped with Mosaic. Strength (ABV): 9.0% ABV. Bitterness (IBU): 80 IB.

“This is quite possibly the most amount of flavor that can be packed into a glass of red ale,” explains Green Flash Brewmaster, Chuck Silva. “With layers of hop flavor and aroma, Road Warrior offers an amazing hop fruitiness that lends to the beer’s overall drinkability.”
