Wednesday, October 24th! We’ll be tapping this year’s winning entry, Chocolate Chipotle Stout, brewed by Vincent and Suzanne Powers of Nottingham, MD. This full-bodied stout perfectly balances a spicy, chipotle pepper bite with smooth, silky chocolate and a strong 7.5% abv for one unique, very drinkable beer.
Vincent and Suzanne’s winning entry will also be distributed by our brewery in kegs and a limited run of 22oz bottles, available everywhere that our beer is sold. And, just like last year, we are donating EVERY SINGLE PENNY from the sale of H.E.R.O. Chocolate Chipotle Stout directly to…
The Alysha Miller Harris Baby Fund, benefitting the wife and (as of this entry) unborn child of Ben Harris. Ben, a very popular employee of the Redhook Brewery in New Hampshire, died tragically when a plastic keg that he was cleaning exploded. While this charity is not local to us here in Maryland, it was set up to help a member of the brewing community, and at the end of the day we all face the same hurdles and dangers in this business, so drink up, help out, be a H.E.R.O.
Those of you who would like to support this very worthy cause beyond the H.E.R.O. campaign can do so by donating here:
