MateVeza Releases Organic Yerba Mate IPA

MateVeza Releases Organic Yerba Mate IPA
(from a press release)

MateVeza has released Yerba Mate IPA, an organic, naturally caffeinated India Pale Ale brewed with yerba mate, source of the South American herbal tea. The much anticipated follow up to MateVeza's award-winning initial release, Yerba Mate Gold, MateVeza's newest offering combines yerba mate's earthy, herbal tones with bright hop flavor and aroma from Cascade, Centennial, and Simcoe hops.

The MateVeza line of organic craft beers is brewed with yerba mate, contributing both a unique flavor and a natural source of caffeine. The yerba mate in MateVeza's new organic IPA provides an amount of caffeine equivalent to one half cup of coffee per twelve-ounce serving.

Yerba mate is cultivated in South America, where a yerba mate infusion is as ubiquitous as a cup of coffee in the United States. Many prefer the gentle stimulating effects of yerba mate to those of coffee. In addition, yerba mate is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The yerba mate ritual has been an integral part of South American culture for hundreds of years, bringing family and friends together.

MateVeza Yerba Mate Gold and Yerba Mate IPA are now available throughout California, Oregon, and Washington in twenty-two-ounce bottles with twelve-ounce bottles arriving this summer. Visit the Mateveza Web site for details on availability.
