Last week, we brewed up something completely different.
We’ve worked with Oakwood Cemetery in the past, bringing our beer to their beautiful grounds for events and performances. While there, we found out about the rich history of Troy brewers buried there, and thought of an idea: if those men could have spanned the decades and centuries between them to brew something collaboratively, what would it look like? It was a novel idea, and we wanted to find out the answer.
Our Dead Brewers Collaboration is our interpretation of the product of such a team-up. Our beer history friend Gerry Lorentz found some old recipes and ingredient sheets, and helped us fill in the gaps. Styled on an English bitter, Dead Brewers has a few uniquely Troy twists. You can find out more about this beer and the history of the brewers buried at Oakwood Cemetery next week, when our Rare Forums series goes on the road. Event link is in the comments.
