(Clifton Park, NY) – The latest from Shmaltz Brewing Co.’s email newsletter…
2014 brings the return of “The Immaculate Collaboration” — a labor of personal history and love of beer and shtick between two longtime friends and colleagues from Shmaltz and Cathedral Square. St. Lenny’s flips the award-winning rye double IPA, on its head using a custom Belgian yeast blend (2 Trappist and 1 Abbey) with the 98 Ratebeer.com rated original Bittersweet Lenny’s R.I.P.A. recipe. With a spicy punch of rye and caraway, fruity clove and anise flavors, and a gorgeous Belgian character, St. Lenny’s is destined to intrigue hop heads and Belgian beer fans alike. Look for it in July in 22 oz bottles and on draft nationwide!
The Hop Manna IPA Four Pack will be available in September ’14! He’brew’s first-ever IPA is the answer to hop heads prayers for a delicious IPA bearing floral and citrus flavors. At 65 IBUs and 6.8% ABV, Hop Manna is crafted to provide session after session of hop nourishment!
This year’s iteration of our ongoing collaboration slash fundraising project – Reunion Ale: A Beer for Hope – adds toasted coconut to last year’s decadent recipe, which included cocoa nibs, vanilla, cinnamon and coffee.
Brewed annually in memory of Virginia MacLean, a friend and dedicated cancer research supporter who lost her own battle with Multiple Myeloma in 2007, Reunion acts as our vehicle to help raise awareness and money for the Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research.
