Divine Shine has proven a rising star in Hop Valley’s constellation of craft beer creations. For good reason, too.
Divine Shine originally debuted in the summer of 2016 as a special release brewed exclusively for back-to-back String Cheese Incident shows at The Cuthbert Amphitheater—Eugene, Oregon’s quintessential outdoor concert venue. If you were lucky enough to attend one of those shows, the beer was labeled Charmin’ Swine’s Divine Ale as a nod to String Cheese Incident’s rollicking, jam-tastic song “Howard” about a “charmin’ swine” enjoying a strange and consciousness-expanding adventure that takes him from California’s Humboldt County to “way down in the Yucatan.”
Divine Shine represents a tasty and balanced marriage of beer styles, including blonde, wheat and pale varieties. The result is a heaven-sent punch of flavors with an approachable 4.5% ABV. Thirsty craft beer fans love the citrus and lemon notes while Galaxy and Mosaic hops add just enough bitterness without overwhelming the beer’s sweeter side. Multi-grain, multi-purpose and unfiltered, this hybrid ale offers the drinkability of an American Blonde, the creaminess of a Hefeweizen and all the hop aroma of a Northwest Pale.
Divine Shine is perfect for wherever the music takes you, so we wanted to make it easier to join you on your blissfully inspired adventures. Originally only available in 12-ounce bottles and in limited release on tap, Divine Shine Hybrid Ale is now available in 12-ounce aluminum cans too. And very soon, keep an eye out for upsized Divine Shine cans in the ever-popular “pounder” 16-ounce size.
