Smartmouth presents:

Release Party: March 7th, 2020


Last year, we released Saturday Morning Marshmallow IPA, a limited beer inspired by the good ‘ole days. After announcing the release, the beer received outrageous hype. We brewed as much as we could to keep up with the demand, but sold out and left a good amount of fans empty-handed. #smallbreweryproblems #jimmyfallonshow #esquiremagazine 🤭

On Saturday, March 7, 2020, we’ll be releasing a second batch of Saturday Morning on draft and 16oz 4-packs for those who didn’t get to join in the fun. We’re making more than we did last year, but supplies will still be limited (and unfortunately we don’t ship beer) so mark your calendars now and be one of the lucky ones to score Saturday Morning!
