Who Inspired this Beer?

Sara Fix has raised three children, run a small business, and handled many ups and downs in her life —and, on the side (for fun), completed 28 Ironman races all over the globe. In 2015 and 2016, she placed 7th at the Ironman World Championships in Kona and has since carried an All-American Top 10 ranking.

In 2021, everything changed.

Sara was competing in the Ironman in Augusta, Georgia, and during the swim portion, she felt extremely winded. Every arm stroke became more challenging than the last, and she felt herself fading. A medic pulled her out of the water, and consequently, she did not finish the race. Fast forward a few weeks later, after not feeling right still, Sara went to the Doctor, where she had some tests completed.

In complete shock and disbelief, Sara was informed she would need immediate surgery as her Doctors discovered stage three cancer. Her training days, simply put, were done. After 12 hours of surgery, months of chemo, and other treatments, Sara became increasingly depressed.

Until a phone call with an old friend where they spoke about life, mindset, and happiness.

Sara said screw it and decided that “sick” was a state of mind and would not be labeled or told she couldn’t compete.

She explained to us, “I just flipped a switch in my brain and started to focus on what was in my control.”

That spark then led her back into training, and in late 2022, Sara completed and placed in the Florida Ironman while still battling cancer.

And since it was her state of mind in the Sunshine where she said no to the status quo and refused to be labeled, and dominated the race, we just had to name one of our most popular beers after her.

Our Tropical IPA, aptly named “Sunshine State” is a testament to the badassery of Sara, and we couldn't be more excited to share it with you.

A nice tasting tropical IPA

A very nice tasting and balanced beer. True to its name, this beer has many of the typical attributes you'd expect: visually thick and remarkably consistent with that of a glass of orange juice. Those visuals carry over into the flavor of the beer: slightly sweet and mildly cloying. Where this beer falls that is the visuals. I know, you drink a beer, you didn't gaze at it expecting visual art. However, the head immediately disappears and you truly have something that looks no better than a glass of orange juice.

Tase was no good

Love the flavor, aroma, colors. Only negative is that it’s higher in calories and carbs, so I have to limit myself. A definite favorite.

Awesome

This is a fantastic drink for those hot summer days, cool, refreshing and just tangy enough. Definitely a keeper

Just buy it

I've tried so many NA IPAs. None of them comes close to what this delivers. The hint of tropical flavor is perfection. I'm starting to enjoy this MORE than the local breweries" IPAs that I have enjoyed for years. An absolute must for chillin in the backyard this summer 😎
