Perrin Brewing Company to Livestream Brewing of Interactive Brew 2.0
Press Release

You Chose Perrin’s Next Beer, & Now You Can Watch Them Brew It!
Comstock Park, Mich. (December 2, 2020) Over the past few weeks, voters have determined the style and ingredients of Perrin’s next beer release through the second ever Interactive Brew project. Beer lovers are invited to view a special livestream event on December 3 at 10 a.m. EST to watch Perrin’s brewing team craft this special, crowd-sourced brew. Homebrewers can follow along at home with materials provided by Perrin.
The Interactive Brew 2.0 project kicked off on November 13 and allowed the craft beer community to weigh in on aspects of Perrin’s next brew, including style and sub-style, flavor elements and the name of the beer. According to the results, Perrin’s next beer will be a Stout with chocolate, caramel and coconut. The project follows the initial Interactive Brew, which took place earlier this year, resulting in Self S’More-antine, a Russian Imperial Stout.
The name of the beer is still being determined, so click here to pick your favorite on or before Friday, December 4.
Visit Youtube here or tune into Perrin’s facebook page for the behind-the-scenes livestream event at 10 a.m. EST on December 3. Viewers are encouraged to come prepared with questions for Perrin’s brewers. Homebrewers can find detailed brewing instructions and a printable recipe here. Stay tuned for beer release information coming soon.

Due to a growing concern for public health, Alberta Beer Festivals is calling off this year’s Banff Craft Beer Week and postponing it until further notice. From the outset of planning, which began in August of 2020, the format for the Banff Craft Beer Week was always intended to be people safely supporting local by visiting restaurants in their cohorts. Even with this in mind, due to the recent escalation of Covid cases both in Banff and in the province of Alberta, we are calling off all activations for the 2020 Banff Craft Beer Week.

American Guinness Head Brewer, Hollie Stephenson, Is on a Mission

Guinness Head Brewer Hollie Stephenson Is on a Mission to Make More Than Stouts (but Also Stouts)

While the Maryland brewery produces several stouts — after all, it is Guinness — head brewer Hollie Stephenson says it has been her mission to “challenge people’s perception of Guinness as a traditional stout brewer.” She’s done this by leading its experimental brewing program, which has produced its signature light golden lager, Guinness Blonde, along with the fruity Guinness Salt and Lime Ale, and the citrusy Guinness Galaxy IPA. Indeed, the 4,000-square-foot taproom introduces visitors to about a dozen experimental beers at any given time, Stephenson says.
