There are some really awesome things about working in this industry, but even better than the great beer are the friendships we make along the way.
It makes sense. Beer brings people together. It stands to reason that it brings together the people who make it, as well.
Throughout the years, we’ve been lucky enough to have a great relationship with the folks at Night Shift Brewing up in Everett, Massachusetts. Back in 2018, they were extraordinarily gracious when the Pats lost in the Big Game to our beloved Eagles, making good on our bet. Their co-founder Mike O’Mara was behind our bar slinging our brews, taking in stride the good-natured ribbing that Philadelphia fans are known for. In addition, they lent a hand during Extreme Beer Fest last year, getting us to Boston through their distribution arm.
It only makes sense that the two of us join forces for a collaboration. And, since Night Shift expanded into coffee roasting in the past year, it made even more sense that we brew a beer together that incorporated that burgeoning side of their business.
Brewberry, an Imperial Stout with blueberry and coffee, releases next week. Earlier this week, we welcomed Daniel Griffith and Issac Boucher to lend a hand brewing it up.
