Baltimore, Md.-based Stillwater Artisanal Ales and Beacon, N.Y.-based Hudson Valley Brewing Co. recently announced a collaboration named Hopvinebling.
The new beer is a dry-hopped berliner weisse with sauvignon blanc grapes with an ABV of 5 percent. According to Brian Strumke, founder and brewer of Stillwater Artisanal, Hopvinebling was made with “lots of wheat,” nelson sauvin and hallerton blanc hops, and an addition of sauvignon blanc grape juice. When asked if there was a specific inspiration behind Hopvinebling, Strumke replied simply “Drake.”
Hopvinebling will be released in early June and will be available in 22-ounce bottles and on draft.
