DDH Pulp Culture - Pre-Holiday Release Party

DDH 'Pulp Culture' is BACK - and just in time for the holidays! This time jam-packed with mountains of Galaxy + Amarillo hops, this is one of our boldest hoppy endeavors to date and one we can't wait to share with the world on Friday, 12/21!!

As you may remember from the last DDH Pulp release, we worked with the amazing Kristine Lohman in designing 4 limited-edition, Warhol-inspired Pulp Culture labels, and this is the 2nd of those 4 designs (thanks, Kristine!). 

Here's the skinny:
- Unlike previous DDH Pulp releases, this one will be taking place on a Friday - with the first tapping and crowler sales *kicking off at 5pm SHARP*
- We'll only have around *200 crowlers available,* with a limit of 3 per customer (with handy 3-pack carriers to boot!)
- We will no longer be able to fill DDH Pulp crowlers once these initial cans have been sold
- And because stickers are awesome, we'll once again have some free limited-edition DDH Pulp stickers for anyone who grabs a crowler (along with a re-stock of our DDH Pulp tees!)
- Price TBD

Nothing says holiday kickoff party like a DDH Pulp release on Friday, 12/21, and we can't wait to see as many of your smiling faces as possible in a few weeks!
