As we’ve said in the past, when craft beer folks get together to brew good things happen. This is another one of those “good things”. Back in August of 2011, Hurricane Irene was an Atlantic hurricane which devastated the East Coast of the United States with massive flooding. The Alchemist brewery in Vermont was destroyed. You may know them as the brewery behind “Heady Topper“, a 16 oz. can of hoppy greatness, (so we’re told… unfortunately, Heady Topper is not available in these parts.) But the folks who have had it tell me it’s wonderful stuff.
So back in November of 2011 three breweries teamed up, Stone, Ninkasi, and The Alchemist, to produce this More Brown Than Black IPA in order to raise proceeds to benefit the Waterbury Good Neighbor Fund. The goal is to help to rebuild the brewery and surrounding areas. With a brew like this they are sure to raise a bunch of money.
