We brought you the news of this collaboration brew between home brewers Jason Field & Kevin Shepard, John Trogner from our very own Troegs Brewing and of course Mitch Steele from Stone Brewing….and today it’s exciting to be able to show you the actual labels and keg packaging. Looks like this 8.8% ABV ale brewed with chocolate, cherries and vanilla will be bottled in 12oz bottles (and kegs), which may actually increase the likelihood that we’ll see some make it to NEPA. From the bottle: “Homebrewing is a catalyst fueling American craft brewers. The opportunity to spend a day with Jason and Kevin (and the brewers from Stone) and bring their vision to life took us back to Boulder Colorado, where we would spend hours formulating recipes, homebrewing, and educating our palates. Our earliest roots start with a six-gallon pot, a beat-to-crap stove and a burning desire. That curiosity of taste, and youthful stubbornness has grown into Troegs Brewery, and those early days still fuel our passion….John Trogner” I’ve also included above the backing label version with inscriptions by Jason and Kevin.
