Black Hog Brewing Co. announced that they will make charitable donations to the Working Lands Alliance, an organization dedicated to preserving Connecticut’s farmland.
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Black Hog’s Farmland Series will be donated to the Working Lands Alliance. The Farmland Series is a collection of limited release beers that include locally grown ingredients. Black Hog plans on releasing a different Farmland brew each season.
“We’re very proud of this series,” says co-owner Tom Sobocinski, “not only because of the great crops we’re able to find locally, but because it gives us a chance to help preserve one of our state’s great resources.”
The first release in the series is Strawberry Gose, a German-style wheat beer that was made with fresh organic strawberries grown at Massaro Farms in Woodbridge, CT.
“Growing up you always heard that ‘local means fresh’,” explains Head Brewer and co-owner Tyler Jones, “and beers thrive whenever you can use fresh, high-quality ingredients.”
Strawberry Gose (pronounced goes-uh), is a German style wheat beer from the Leipzeg region, known for it’s salt mines. Black Hog’s Gose is light and bright with a delicate strawberry nose. Additions of pink Himalayan salt, coriander and over 100lbs of fresh organic strawberries during secondary fermentation, make this one-off beer truly unique.
Black Hog Brewing Co.’s Strawberry Gose is available now in restaurants, pubs and bars throughout Connecticut. It is being distributed by Star Distributors, Inc. of West Haven and Hartford Distributors, Inc. of Manchester.
