Brewery Collaboration Recipes
Most professional brewers start as home brewers and we want to celebrate that. We’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many talented brewers over the years and we are excited to see some of them make the leap from stove top to brew deck.
We have been bouncing around to Rhode Island breweries not to clone famous recipes, but to collaborate with breweries to make something different. Not only do we get to brew great beer with great people, we also get to share the recipes with the homebrew community!
Lops Brewing – Woonsocket, RI
Lops Brewing was started in 2019 by Sean Lopolito. Located right in our own back yard of Woonsocket. We were happy to do our first collaboration with Sean and he jumped at the opportunity to do a true cask beer. Together we brewed an English Dark Mild by the name of “False Bravado”. The name comes from this beer having a low ABV but having big body and flavor to match.
Union Station Brewery – Providence, RI
Union Station Brewery was started in 1993 and is the oldest running (still active) brewery in Rhode Island. We worked with the head brewer Dave Kenney to develop a mash hopped New Zealand Pilsner. This is not your typical light lager but instead a beer bursting with tropical fruit flavor balanced on a light malt body. We called the beer “New Tricks” to show case that while USB and BVBS are old dogs, we can still do New Tricks.
Bravo Brewing Company – Pascoag, RI
Bravo Brewing Company was started in 2020 by Chris Mishoe. Chris started turning heads with his offerings of English and German style beers which was a nice contrast to the IPAs in the wild. When we brewed with Chris we did a throw back to a style that you don’t see too often, a Red Rye Ale called “Stunt Plane”. A malty rich beer with just the right amount of hops to make you come back for more.
Long Live Beer Works – Providence, RI
Long Live Beer Works started in 2016 by Armando Dedona. Before Armando started LLBW he was a long time customer of the shop and it all came full circle when we did our collaboration. Our love of historical beers brings us to the English Pale Mild. “The Most Amazing Pale Mild” has a bright straw color and turns the volume up on biscuit and malt flavors against a back drop of US hops.
