NEW YORK BREWERY MAKES BEER IN HONOR OF CARDINAL DOLAN
Yonkers Brewing Co. Creates a Cream Ale for the Grand Marshal of Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade
YONKERS, NY (March 15, 2017) – In honor of His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, Yonkers Brewing Co. crafted a unique American Cream Ale. This 4.6% ABV brew was created specifically to suit the Cardinal’s palette.
“When we reached out to the Cardinal’s team to present the idea they were very enthusiastic,” said John Rubbo, BrewEO, Yonkers Brewing Co. “They explained the styles of beer he enjoys and, with our new Brewmaster Dave Hartmann, we created the perfect twist on it!”
Named Cardinal Dolan’s Ale, this American Cream Ale features a crisp and refreshing flavor with almost an evanescent quality to it. A light, malty note at the fore leads to a slight kiss of hops, with a nice dry finish leaving you ready for more.
“We’re thrilled that Yonkers Brewing Co. decided to honor Cardinal Dolan with a timely beer,” said Joseph Zwilling, Director of Communications for the Archdiocese. “Their excitement for the special beer is inspiring, and I look forward tasting it this Saturday.”
The 62nd Annual Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade on McLean Avenue will be taking place this Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 1 p.m. Cardinal Dolan’s Ale will be available at many of the local establishments celebrating after the parade, including Rory Dolan’s Bar and Restaurant.
“Our team is grateful to have the opportunity to create a beer for a respected and influential leader like the Cardinal,” said Rubbo. “He is an icon of New York and being the Grand Marshal for this year’s Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day parade makes it that much more special to us.”
