Graystone Brewing announces a community brew titled United Hops

img_1827Graystone Brewing announces their first community brew titled United Hops, in support of United Way of Central New Brunswick.

Since opening July 1st, Graystone Brewing has had its own hurdles but with help from the local beer lover/brewing community it’s seen a great response and it’s created an amazing experience. As of late September the brewery is fully functioning, offering pints in house, filling Growlers, Crowlers and soon supplying orders to local restaurants/pubs and bars including The Capital Complex.

United Hops will be Graystone Brewing’s 4th brew being brought to life with the help of everyday beer lovers and hop growers. One Sunday afternoon a handful of helpful folks donated a portion of their NB grown hops to help create this Harvest IPA. Hops include Summit, Perle, El Dorado, Cascade, Idaho 7, and a small amount of mystery donations. This beer is earthy with notes of grapefruit, and pine with an ABV of 6% and IBU of 82.

United Hops’ is one of the most fun surprises our United Way has received! The recipe mirrors what United Way is trying to do: bring our community together to support our neighbours.  Helping the community out with a community-sourced beer is such a creative way for Graystone Brewing to pitch in.  We can’t wait to try it!

– Jeff Richardson Executive Director for United Way of Central NB
