Sprung Monkey - Sprung 4 Life IPA

Our collaboration with 3 Punk Ales is really a dream come true. I've been wanting to combine the Sprung Monkey name and brand with a local beer for years, and the timing is perfect since San Diego is truly a hot bed for quality breweries! I knew that working with 3 Punk Ales was a great fit from our first meeting. Their passion, drive and knowledge were reasons I couldn't wait to start working with them. I was thrilled that they were keen on me being hands on with the development of the project! From the flavor profile of the beer, the name and how we would market it. The results were amazing! We arrived at an IPA with tropical and citrus notes from the hops and a nice caramel like sweetness from the malt. It's a very balanced flavor profile. I can't wait till this quintessential San Diego style IPA is available all over the county and beyond!

Sprung Monkey - So-Cal / action sport lifestyle!

Throughout the years, Sprung Monkey's songs have made headway in extreme sports, including the Vans Warped Tour, ESPN's X-Games, as well as action sport films for the skate, snowboarding and surf industries. Their music was also included in the entire series of Music for Our Mother Ocean, a CD compilation produced to benefit the Surfrider Foundation. Sprung Monkey just signed with Pacific Records, San Diego’s premier independent record label, known for supporting a wide range of musicians with a unique sound who are in a genre entirely of their own.

"I’m absolutely thrilled to welcome Sprung Monkey to the Pacific Records family and we are all extremely enthusiastic about their new record and our future with Sprung Monkey" said Brian Witkin, CEO of Pacific Records, Inc.

Sprung Monkey will be finishing the recording of their next full length album over the next two months and a release date will likely be announced within that timeframe. Sprung Monkey band members include Steve Summers (vocals), Mike Summers (guitar), William Riley (guitar), Ernie Longoria (drums), and Tony DeLocht (bass). Monkey have released four albums, Situation Life, Swirl, Mr. Funny Face, and Get A Taste. Sprung Monkey is scheduled to play this weekend with P.O.D. and Jon Goodhue on October 13th in Kearny Mesa at the San Diego Harley Davidson.
