Collab with Davidson Brothers Brewing
Last Friday, our Head Brewer Sharif traveled to brew a collaboration beer with Davidson Brothers Brewing Company, a traditional English-style brewery in Glens Falls, N.Y. Sharif and Davidson Brothers’ Head Brewer Jason Kissinger put their heads together to create an English version of our Vanilla Stout, name TBA.
Although it should be a delicious beer, the most intriguing part of the project was the system on which is was brewed. Davidson Brothers works on an Alan Pugsly System, one of just 22 left in the U.S. It works with a direct fire brick boil kettle and open fermentation. We also used traditional English Ringwood ale yeast. We will let you know when we get a few kegs of this guy in the tasting room.
We are doing ANOTHER collab, a third in the last couple months, this time with Evil Genius Beer out of Pennsylvania tomorrow. I won’t spill the beans on the style, but I’ll tease it a bit: it’s an outside-the-box take on a traditional Belgian-style beer. Let your imagination run wild.
Until next time,
