(Burlington, VT) – Over the years, Magic Hat has shown no hesitation in replacing fan favorites in order to mix up its lineup.
A distribution rep confirms that Roxy Rolles has joined Jinx into the graveyard. In terms of sales, they may not be the brand leaders but they were brand staples that were popular among beer connoisseurs. Fortunately, the brewery will bring back another temporary casualty, Hi.P.A., as part of its IPA on Tour Series and Night of Living Dead variety 12-pack this fall though only time will tell if Jinx and Roxy Rolles will one day see bottles again.
So what is replacing Roxy Rolles?
Making its debut in 6-packs, 22’s and on draft is Hex Ourtoberfest. Hex will also make an appearance in the fall variety 12-pack. Magic Hat’s website describes the beer as, “A malty amber ale with hints of toffee and caramel and a slightly smoky finish.” Hex has been on tap since late last month at the brewery.
