2013 Collaboration Beer from Brooklyn, Ommegang and Saranac
For the third year in a row, SAVOR continues its tradition of offering a special collaboration beer for attendees to take home and enjoy with friends and family, to share the spirit of SAVOR. In 2011, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and Samuel Adams brought us SAVOR Flowers, a 10% ABV, oak aged craft beer brewed with rose water. Last year, Boulevard Brewing Co. and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. created Terra Incognita, which was brewed with Sierra’s estate grown malt and finished with Boulevard’s Brettanomyces in Missouri oak barrels.
New York Limited is the 2013 SAVOR collaboration beer, and this limited release is sure to be a coveted addition to attendees’ beer cellars. Three New York breweries teamed up to brew this exclusive beer: SAVOR Supporting Partner Brewery Ommegang and SAVOR Supporting Breweries Brooklyn Brewery and Saranac. This special release will be presented as an exit gift to SAVOR attendees in a 750 ml corked and caged bottle.
The brewers have described New York Limited as a strong white lager—a wheat beer with spicing—so it’s likely to be perfect for a warm June day in Manhattan. New York state ingredients were used as much as possible, including honey, multiple spices including lemon verbena, and New York state hops. The three breweries worked at Brooklyn’s facility to brew the beer with lager yeast, and it will be bottle-conditioned with ale yeast.
