Top Hops: Second Line Brewing’s Comeback Kid

You know what we here at NoDef love about these craft beers, man? We get older, but they stay the same taste. This weekend, Second Line Brewing will re-release a real crowd favorite: an IPA brew as smooth as Mr. McConaughey himself.


Alryte, Alryte, Alryte is a crafted Imperial Rye IPA blending Mosaic, Equinox, Citra, and Eurkea hops for a complex yet cool taste. 


The brew is the “brainchild” of head brewer Gar Hatcher, said Second Line’s Brand Manager Abby Willets. “This beer is a big, flavorful West Coast IPA that is deceptively smooth.” Clocking in at 9.2% ABV (alcohol by volume), the Imperial Rye IPA is a refreshing brew that will help even the most weary worker unwind at the end of the week. 


The name points to the catchphrase from Matthew McConaughey’s iconic character Wooderson in the film, Dazed and Confused. The phrase “Alright, Alright, Alright” has become a sort of life motto for the sometime New Orleanian, even making an appearance in his Oscars acceptance speech. 


Second Line’s label also serves as an homage to the 1993 Richard Linklater flick, featuring an illustrated version of brew master Hatcher on the label. 


On Saturday, Second Line will host a party to toast the return of Alryte, Alryte, Alryte. From noon to 10PM, the Mid-City brewery will open its doors at 433 N. Bernadotte St. for a party, featuring limited edition t-shirts and snacks courtesy of the Fete Au Fete food truck. Local funk back Smoke n’ Bones will take the stage 7:30PM.
