Green Flash @ J/70 North Americans!

Green Flash Brewery sponsoring J/70 North Americans (San Diego, CA)- Have you ever witnessed the brilliance of a “green flash” along the horizon at sunset? Have you had the pleasure of enjoying a tasty Green Flash beer? Now is your chance to experience both!  Visit sunny San Diego for the J/70 NAs!

Green Flash Brewing Co. has signed on as the title sponsor of 2015 J 70 North American Championship to be held at San Diego Yacht Club, September 24-27. We are extremely excited to have Green Flash and their team on our side. They are the most important part of our promise to provide sun, wind and beer!

J/70s sailing off San Diego BayHeadquartered in San Diego, Green Flash Brewing Co. was established in 2002 by Mike and Lisa Hinkley – avid sailors and San Diego Yacht Club members. Together, they lead a talented team of craft beer enthusiasts, who embrace their brand vision with serious passion and zeal. Green Flash Brewmaster, Chuck Silva has developed an award-winning assortment of specialty craft ales that are celebrated by their loyal following of craft beer fans internationally.

In the fall of 2014, Green Flash nationally released “Jibe Session IPA” – a new beer named after the sailing term. A “session IPA” is an emerging and popular beer style that is lower-in-alcohol than traditional IPAs, while remaining as flavorful as most traditional IPAs. For years, Green Flash has been known for brewing very bold double and triple IPAs. Upon making the decision to release a session beer, Green Flash changed J/70s sailing upwind off San Diego, Californiacourse. True to the definition of the beer style, Jibe Session IPA is a refreshing, flavorful 4% ABV beer with a vibrant character -ideal for an afternoon at sea. Jibe Session IPA is perfectly suited to complement what we anticipate will be the best J/70 North American Championship to date. Green Flash is honored to be the title sponsor of this year’s event.

Green Flash will be a part of our “Tune UP” regatta on September 12/13 and for all of the North Americans. The Opening Ceremony, “Theme” parties and live music are all being planned.
