Our pal Spike Buckowski from Terrapin Beer Co received approval today for Reunion Ale ‘11: A Beer for Hope. This 7.6% ABV brew will be a dark ale brewed with cocoa nibs (from Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Co), vanilla and chili peppers and be bottled in 22oz packaging. This beer is a co-brew with Schmaltz Brewing Co and benefits the Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research.
As the label says: “
Teaming up with Shmaltz Brewing for the first time, Terrapin Beer Co. returns for a third year as a production partner for Reunion ’11. We brew Reunion each year in memory of our dear friend and partner in this venture – Virginia MacLean. Virginia lost her battle with Multiple Myeloma in 2007. It was her wish that we continue to raise funds an awareness on behalf of The Institute for Myeloma and Bone Cancer Research (www.imbcr.org).
