We’re proud to announce our next collaboration is with Hackney Brewery (London) and Kings County Brewers Collective (New York). Dawn, Simon, Les, and Daisy fly across to New York tomorrow, and will then be joined over there by Steve Lawler, Brewer at Hackney Brewery.
Simon and Dawn paid a visit to KCBC’s taproom when on holiday in December last year. They met Tony and Pete and instantly clicked over Harley-Davidson’s and the synergy between their artwork. So bikes and a love of beer cemented the friendship after a night in KCBC’s amazing brew house.
A night out in London with Jon and Steve from Hackney Brewery then followed, starting with a few pints at the Euston Tap. Simon and Les were then treated to a tour of Hackney Brewery (thanks, Jon!). The lab equipment they have invested in is really impressive, and something we’ve really learned from as a brewery.
The collaboration beer is a pink peppercorn, passion fruit & hibiscus saison. It’s scheduled to be brewed on Thursday 4th April at KCBC’s brewery in Brooklyn.
Pete Lengyel, Co-Owner / Brew Commander at KCBC said, “We’re super excited to welcome our friends from across the pond to collaborate on this year’s spring seasonal saison. Pink Panthalope will be released into the wilds of NYC this April”.
