Salvador Brewing Co. | Mk2 Piña Colada NEIPA

Mk2 was a grenade that was used a lot during World War II. With its characteristic shape, it received the "pineapple" nickname during the confrontations. Making an allusion to the Piña Colada cocktail, we incorporated the already traditional New England IPA to the power of the pineapple and the coconut in an explosion of tastes and aromas.
