Welcome to the Deep Sea Society, an elite research team tasked with finding what lurks far below the ocean’s surface, deep in the abyss. We set out to explore this captivating world, one of the most uncharted territories on our planet. Where the seemingly impossible is possible. Where there’s always something new to uncover. At depths of 13,000 to 20,000 feet, this ocean zone remains in perpetual darkness, but our epic discoveries will shine a light on the mysteries of the deep.

For this release, we’ve coordinated with esteemed brewers from across the country — who also happen to be enthusiastic, amateur ocean explorers. Inspired by the incredible and mesmerizing creatures of the deep, each beer in this release represents an epic discovery, something no human has ever laid eyes on … until now. Step aboard and get ready to dive in and uncover these beings and brews for yourself. 

Release No. 17 // Deep Sea Society
Few creatures can live in this unknown part of the sea, but the comb jelly has thrived for millions of years. Meet Dark Abyss, a black kölsch from Thorn Brewing Co. in San Diego, CA. Dive into this ale, which is as dark as the deepest parts of the sea but features a light malt character with a touch of sweetness and bitterness.

You never know what you’ll find Beyond the Shadow. Perhaps a mysterious shelled creature with long spiraled tentacles propelling it forward? Or maybe a golden ale with hibiscus from our friends at Oswego Brewing Co. in Oswego, IL. This unique, pink-tinted brew is approachable, flavorful and refreshing.

A glimmering light stands out in the darkness and lures you in, but beware of the Deep Sea Decoy. That luminous beacon may instead lead you straight to the sharp fangs of this predator. Encounter this citrus-forward West Coast double IPA brewed by Able Baker Brewing Co. in Las Vegas, NV, with a delicious dose of grapefruit.

Neither squid nor octopus, Vampyroteuthis infernalis, aka the vampire squid, is one of the most enigmatic creatures of the deep. Come face-to-face with The Monster Itself, from East Brother Beer Co. in Richmond, CA. This English brown ale with a creamy mouthfeel has a malty nose of toast drizzled with caramel.
