Dirtbag Ales is now serving two new drinks. 

The first, known as Cashmere Board Shorts, is a hazy New England-style IPA brewed with El Dorado, Galaxy and Cashmere hops. The drink promises pleasant citrus aroma with pronounced notes of tropical fruit and is on tap now.

Additionally, Dirtbag Ales has collaborated with DistiNCtly Fayetteville to bring customers the new Diverse-City Honey Cream Ale. 

“We are excited to continue our relationship with the team at Dirtbag Ales, launching the new ‘Diverse-City’ Ale. The new ale celebrates our region’s greatest asset – our community. Cumberland County is made up of a culturally rich and diverse community, a beautiful ripple effect of being home to the largest U.S. military installation by population, Fort Liberty. We’re excited to launch a delicious brew that pairs perfectly with our distinct community,” said Devin Heath, president and CEO of DistiNCtly Fayetteville.

The light, refreshing ale is brewed locally by Dirtbag Ales and flavored with honey from the Fayetteville-based beekeeper and honey provider, Beehive Yourself. The collaboration blossomed from a shared passion of the Cumberland County community, which can be seen within the ingredients and the colorful packaging design. 

“Cumberland County is a melting pot of cultures and experiences, resulting in a rich community. We wanted to honor what makes our region special, capturing it through the flavors and branding of our Diverse-City brew,” said Vernardo ‘Tito’ Simmons-Valenzuela, co-owner and brewer, Dirtbag Ales. “We are thrilled to work on another collaboration with DistiNCtly Fayetteville, and support their mission of increasing tourism to the Fayetteville area.” 

To taste these new drinks swing by Dirtbag Ales located at 5435 Corporation Dr. in Hope Mills.
