Tickets still remain for the “new experience” of Summer Fest 2023, Feat. Voltron

A summer beer festival, hosted by 4 Hands Brewing Company? Well, that surely means the annual Lupilin Carnival is back right? Well, not this year. For the summer of 2023, and in support of their major recent collaboration project based on Voltron, 4 Hands is debuting a new summer experience this weekend: Summer Fest.
But don’t worry, Lupilin is just on hiatus and should be back in 2024.

4 Hands Brewing Co. Summer Fest

Summer Fest will debut on Saturday, June 17th, from noon until 4pm at the brewery with a celebration of live music and libations!

Summer Fest will feature curated experiences centered around beer, hard seltzers, ready-to-drink canned cocktails and boozy slushies. In addition to 4 Hands and 1220 selections, you will have access to beers from some of the top breweries from mid-Missouri, Kansas City and St. Louis as well as all breweries that will be featured in the Voltron series of beers.

The Voltron Series

Last month, 4 Hands launched a series of new beers inspired by the ’80s animated series Voltron,¬†brewed in collaboration with NBC Universal, St. Louis‚Äďbased World Events Productions, and five breweries from across the country. Each¬†brewery¬†is creating its own recipe, all of which will be brewed at 4 Hands.

The¬†Voltron beers will be released in six volumes over the next two years. Each “volume” will represent one of the Voltron lions. The first “volume” from Narro Gauge is available now.¬† The breweries include:

  • Narrow Gauge(Florissant):¬†The first beer represents the Yellow Lion and is a Double Hazy IPA (7.5% ABV). The beer uses a thiolozed yeast from St. Louis‚Äďbased Omega yeast called “Helio Gazer.” With the addition of citra, mosaic, and galaxy hops, the beer has¬†bursts of passionfruit, guava, and grapefruit. It pours with a slightly hazy body and a huge aroma on the nose.
  • Southern Grist Brewing¬†(Nashville, Tennessee)
  • Hop Butcher for the World¬†(Chicago, Illinois)
  • Tripping Animals Brewing¬†(Doral, Florida)
  • WeldWerks Brewing¬†(Greeley, Colorado)
