Perrin Brewing Launches Beer Distribution in New York


Comstock Park, Mich. – Perrin Brewing joins Union Beer Distributors to introduce the Perrin line-up to the craft beer scene of New York. Perrin, based in Comstock Park, Michigan will offer year-round core brands, seasonal, and specialty bottles including No Rules, Vietnamese Imperial Porter, Black Ale, Gold Ale, 98 Problems IPA, and Grapefruit IPA.

The growth for Perrin Brewing has continued after a collaborative partnership with Oskar Blues Brewery (the first craft brewery in the US to can its beer) in Longmont, Colorado in 2015. Part of this continued growth is from the addition of canned packaging making Perrin beer available in most major retailers across the market. Since the rollout of can distribution, Perrin is prepared to offer packaged beer in several states outside of Michigan.

“No Rules” a 15% Vietnamese Imperial Porter is brewed with coconut, cinnamon and turbinado sugar then laid down and aged in bourbon barrels. RateBeer ranked “No Rules” in the Top 10 in the world for Imperial, Baltic Porters of 2016 and was ranked the World’s Top New Beer Release of 2015. The online ratings of “No Rules” is a score of 100 for Style and 100 for the Overall categories; ending in a perfect RateBeer score.

Draft Magazine Ranked “No Rules” their #1 beer for Winter sipping.

“The cinnamon is an “old trick” from growing up as a beekeeper. Mead makers use to cinnamon to mask alcohol warmth, as it helped smooth out this brew,” mentioned by John Stewart, Director of Brewing Operations at Perrin. “No Rules really shines as a dessert pairing. The turbinado sugar, a raw unfinished sugar brings out notes of maple and molasses.”

Perrin Brewing distribution into New York market begins in mid/late April.

More about Perrin Brewing lineup 


Perrin Gold Ale | ABV 4.8% IBU 15

A light, crisp and subtly sweet golden ale made with the sessionable beer drinker in mind. This was one of the first beers made at the brewery and it quickly became a popular style because of the accessibility and the gateway characteristics it embodies.

Hops: Magnum and CrystalMalts: 2 Row

Perrin Black Ale | ABV 5.8% IBU 20

A light bodied, crisp and flavorful dark ale with hints of semi-sweet chocolate and soft nuances of fresh coffee. This beer is counter intuitive in the way that it pours dark as night but tastes like a lighter beer encompassing a range of full flavor. #1 New Craft Can SKU in the US

Hops: German Magnum and CrystalMalts: 2 Row and Roasted Malts


98 Problems IPA | ABV 6.5% IBU 60

Our IPA accomplishes the nearly impossible feat of balancing a sweet malty backbone along with a blend of West Coast hops, which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas. This is how an IPA should taste! 98 on RateBeer

Hops: Michigan Cascade, CascadeDry Hopped: Citra, CascadeMalts: 2 Row, Crystal

No Rules | ABV 15% IBU 56 

Vietnamese Imperial Porter

NO RULES were followed throughout the creation of this product.

This gigantic 15% Imperial Porter is deceptively smooth and subtly sweet with layers of flavor that never seem to end. Some say it tastes like a Mounds candy bar that’s been dipped over and over again in rich chocolate and soaked in bourbon. Other people find flavors of coconut, cinnamon, toffee, vanilla, and coffee — and they would also be correct. This beer is special and there’s a reason why it was named as the top beer in the World. 100 on RateBeer
