BALTIMORE, MD — Breweries based in Baltimore City and County will soon work together to produce a beer for Baltimore Beer Week 2014. On Friday, September 12th at 10:00 am, brewers from Heavy Seas Beer, DuClaw Brewing Company, Union Craft Brewing, Red Brick Station, The Brewer’s Art, and Oliver Breweries will work together at Union to brew a German style “fest-bier” using locally grown American hops.
Heavy Seas’ Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard, who organized the collaboration, believes the exchange of ideas and techniques fosters camaraderie, cultivates local awareness, and can ultimately help improve everyone’s products.
A portion of the proceeds from the collaboration beer, to be named Stoop Sitter, will benefit the Jake’s Law charity. This non-profit is working towards raising awareness about the dangers of all handheld cell phone use while driving. For more information about Jake’s Law, please visit: http://changeforjake.org
Stay tuned for more details on when and where Stoop Sitter will be released during Baltimore Beer Week this October!
