What’s Unique?
The beer was created to celebrate the commissioning of the 4th generation of a United States submarine, the USS Colorado. The client requested that the USS Colorado be the main focus in the imagery, and add dolphins from the US Submariner’s insignia and the Twin Peaks mountains of Colorado.
