AUSTIN, Texas — LORO, the Asian smokehouse and bar from partners Chef Tyson Cole and Aaron Franklin, and Austin’s Skull Mechanix Brewing, a family owned and operated brewery specializing in high quality, well attenuated lagers and ales have announced Smoke N Brew ($8 per glass; first 500 purchases receive branded glass), a limited production lager created by Skull Mechanix Brewing’s Michael Waters in collaboration with LORO.
“On top of being amazingly delicious, LORO has been a huge supporter of Skull Mechanix beers, so we thought this was a super cool way to work together and create something totally new and different,” said Jeff Willis, owner of Skull Mechanix Brewing.
“Everyone at LORO is a huge fan of Skull Mechanix and we’re psyched to use our smoker for more than delicious meats!” said Loro’s pitmaster Bramwell Tripp.
Smoke N Brew (4.6% alcohol by volume) is a smoke inspired bohemian lager produced using Czech malt and hops. A portion of malt was smoked for six hours on-site in LORO’s custom smoker. Featuring a golden appearance, it is light and crisp with a bouquet of smoke that accentuates the perfect balance of malt and hop flavors. The limited production of 30 kegs will be available at LORO and other bars and restaurants in Texas.
Available, while supplies last, beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday, January 16, 2020, with a release party at LORO
