(Ypsilanti, MI) – Per a newsletter sent yesterday…
WHAT IS DARK CORNER?
For those who weren’t around in 2007 when we launched the Dark Corner project, it is a Corner Brewery/Dark Horse collaboration beer. Owners Aaron and Matt developed a fabulous Imperial Brown recipe that was brewed at both locations. One of our good friends (who happens to also be a very talented artist) developed a kick a%! collector’s label and six pack. Six packs that you buy in the stores will contain 3 of our beers and three of Dark Horse’s beers. (Due to state law, you can’t purchase mixed six packs at either brewery – but can only get our beer at Corner and their beer at Dark Horse).
We did the project once in 2007 and then both got too busy to do it again – until this year. We are co-hosting multiple releases with our friends from Dark Horse that we know you won’t want to miss!
