Two local businesses, Holy City Brewing and Pusser’s Rum, have teamed up to create a canned 16 oz. Belgian whitbier inspired by the Painkiller cocktail. The beer will make its debut on Friday, April 1st at Holy City Brewery in North Charleston.
The classic Painkiller cocktail consists of a blend of pineapple and orange juice, cream of coconut, and Pusser’s Rum – and is then topped with freshly grated nutmeg. For this new beer, the brewers at Holy City infused those flavors to create their take on the classic.
The beer will come in a 16-ounce can at 5.2% ABV and will also be offered with a floater of Pusser’s Blue Label Rum – a 3-year aged dark navy rum. Holy City patrons will also be able to find the frozen version of the Painkiller cocktail at their inside restaurant bar and newly renovated outdoor “Cabana Bar.”
“We’re not far from Holy City Brewery, so we’re always here for lunch or meeting up with friends on the weekends to enjoy the wide variety of brews on tap,” Dean Cowart, Director of Marketing & Retail for Pusser’s, said. “We’re beyond excited to be working with the Holy City team, who like us, are all about local partnerships and helping each other out. We know everyone is going to love the frozen Painkillers and the new twist on a Belgian whitbier – it’s going to be a real gamechanger!”
Pusser’s Rum Ltd. relocated their headquarters to North Charleston from the British Virgin Islands a few years ago. Here they oversee the bottling, blending, and distribution of the original Royal Navy rum which is produced in the heart of Demerara Valley in Guyana.
