(Longmont, CO & Athens, GA) – Another pull-out and some new brews…
News trickled out earlier this summer that Left Hand Brewing has pulled distribution from Nebraska. The brewery has withdrawn distribution from a number of markets over the past year as demand in core markets has soared.
Atlanta Beer Master reports that this year’s Fade to Black release will be Chili Porter, due out in November.
Collaboration time with Terrapin Beer Co…here is the latest from Terrapin’s newsletter:
“The magic between Terrapin and Left Hand began in 2008 after a beer festival, around midnight, when the two companies decided to do an annual collaborative brew. This July we are once again teaming up to create the next volume of the Midnight Project series. This year’s collaboration has an agricultural theme featuring a product both states are known for…peaches! The ‘Peaotch‘ is a peachy ale that is sure to please.
Terrapin hosted the crew from Left Hand in Georgia this month for the brewing of ‘Peaotch.’ Left Hand Brew Master, Ro Gunzel, and Spike commenced to brewing late one night and we’re looking forward to another amazing beer this year!”
Finally, Terrapin’s Reunion Ale collaboration just debuted this past weekend:
“Reunion Ale ’11- A Beer for Hope is almost ready! This collaboration with Shmaltz Brewing Company is a Dark Ale brewed with cocoa nibs (from Olive and Sinclair), vanilla and chili peppers! Support the Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research July 29 & 30th with two percentage nights featuring the release of the 2011 Reunion Ale! This will be the first chance to try this year’s brew and a chance to help us support a great cause! Our friends at The Beer Experience documented the brew day. Watch for these 22oz bottles soon.”
