Southern Tier Brewing Company Brings a Sweet Treat Sure to Delight, Orange Twist 

Orange Twist Imperial Ale by Southern Tier Brewing Company, inspired by Perry’s Ice Cream’s Orange Twist flavor

Lakewood, N.Y. – March 11, 2024 – Southern Tier Brewing Company is once again proud to launch a seasonal release in collaboration with Perry’s Ice Cream! Given the massive success of the first release and passion for Vanilla Scoop, both brands knew a second collaboration was a necessity. Inspired by Perry’s classic flavor, Orange Twist is an 8.6% ABV Imperial Ale and features notes of orange sherbet swirled with Perry’s signature vanilla ice cream flavor. This craft ale will make celebrating the upcoming warm weather that much more delicious.   

From the iconic Pumking Imperial Ale to newer releases, like Citra Fog and Juice Jolt, Southern Tier delivers big bold flavors in exceptional craft beer.  “For this release, we wanted to capture the delicious flavor of Perry’s Orange Twist Ice Cream in a bottle.  Featuring Perry’s signature vanilla, notes of orange sherbet, and milk sugar, we’re delivering a citrusy, creamy full-bodied beer we think fans are going to love.” says Brandon Hank, Brand Manager for Southern Tier Brewing Company. The end result…a playful imperial ale that tastes just like ice cream and makes hanging with friends and family that much more fun.

Perry’s Ice Cream, known for a variety of flavors that provide an everyday indulgence, is proud to partner with Southern Tier in this delicious craft ale.  “We are excited for fans to try the latest Southern Tier and Perry’s collaboration, sure to be a new favorite. Orange Twist hits the mark on Perry’s flavor profile and is the perfect liquid on a warm, sunny day!” says Nichole Buryta, Senior Brand Manager for Perry’s Ice Cream.   

In addition to being on tap at Southern Tier’s five Taproom locations, the new craft brand will be arriving on shelves at retailers across New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and other Southern Tier markets, including Consumer Beverage Center, Giant Eagle, Dash’s Market, Sheetz, Tops Markets, Total Wine, Walmart, 7 Eleven, Speedway, Wegmans Food Markets and local independent retailers.
