Two local leaders in their respective industries, AKRS Equipment Solutions and Zipline Brewing Co, have joined forces to create a new beer – AKRS Ale – proudly made for the hardworking Midwest farmer. Brewed with Nebraska-grown corn, AKRS Ale weighs in under 100 calories, and finishes crisp and clean with a light refreshing flavor. The beer will release on draft in limited volumes next week, followed by a full-scale launch, including 12-packs of cans, in October.
“AKRS prides itself on delivering superior quality products to its customers,” said Kevin Clark, CEO of AKRS. “So, when we started to conceive of AKRS Ale as a nod to our core customer base, we quickly settled on Zipline as our keystone partner for the project. Just as our customers associate the AKRS name with quality in the field, we want them to look for AKRS Ale when it’s time to wind down and know they’re getting a great American beer brewed with them in mind.”
“We’re extremely excited to be able to work with the AKRS team on this beer” said Marcus Powers, Co-Founder and CEO of Zipline.“AKRS Ale is about to become the go-to brew for an entire group of folks that love light American beers, but might not think they have any great local options.In this project, we’re bringing together local companies to create a local beer, made with local ingredients, for local farmers.”
