The Brewery has produced a limited edition double Red Giant beer called 6:56 named for the exact time the first growler of beer was sold on December 16, 2009.
The beer is packaged in 750 ml bottles and is based upon the Brewery’s Red Giant but much stronger and hoppier. As with the first 6:56 it will not be distributed and will only be available to purchase at the brewery. This beer will be released for sale during the Open House but it can be pre-ordered at the Company’s website WWW.ELEMENTBEER.COM for pick-up.
The Brewery open house is open to the public and will include live musical performance by Destroy Babylon, a Boston based reggae band, light appetizers (while they last), beer tastings, and a tapping of a special cask of 6:56 with a toast.
The Brewery has obtained a one day liquor license and will be offering beer by the glass during the party. All three of the year round beers, (Extra Special Oak, Red Giant, and Dark Element) will be available as well as Element’s newest creation: Winter Ion which is a 8.5% Alcohol by Volume Chocolate Wit beer.
Element underwent a dramatic expansion in 2011 adding eight more brewing vessels which more than tripled the Brewery’s capacity. This expansion has allowed the Company to expand its distribution within Massachusetts as well as moving into Connecticut, New York City and Iowa. Around Two hundred cases have made there way to Europe as well, and can be found in select beer stores from Denmark to Italy.
