The beers brewed by Collective Arts Brewing were first made available to us here in Rhode Island late last year and I have been head over heels for them since.
The mission of the grassroots brewery, located in Ontario, Canada, is to fuse the creativity of craft beer making with the talents of emerging artists and musicians. Bringing their beer to our store was a no-brainer: you know how important supporting local artists is to us!
Every label and can features a limited-edition work of art, and the suds inside are something of a work of art, as well. My personal favorite of the moment is their Lunch Money Blond Ale. It’s a no-frills, easy drinking ale that goes with nearly everything.
If you’re on the more adventurous side, you have to try Liquid Art Fest. This is a passionfruit, mango, and vanilla sugar ‘milkshake’ IPA. You absolutely must pour this into a glass, it pours out like freshly-squeezed OJ!
Below are the brews that we’re featuring in our beer section. We’ll be cracking open several of them during an in-store event on Friday, August 31st, 2018 from 4-7pm. Please come by and let me know what you think!
Saint of Circumstance Citrus Blond Ale
Like the citrus flavors that come from IPAs but not so into the bite from the hops? This lemon-y citrus blond ale is for you. Low ABV, pilsner malt and seasonal citrus zest.
Lunch Money Blond Ale
As I stated above, this is my go-to easy ale. Just a well-crafted beer that is super crisp and balanced
Prophets & Nomads Gose
An unfiltered wheat beer with coriander and Himalayan salt. Dry, spicy and tart. Great acid!
Ransack the Universe IPA
Galaxy hops from Australia meet Mosaic hops from Washington and marry beautifully in this better-than-awesome IPA. Crisp, slightly bitter and dangerously drinkable.
Liquid Art Fest
I know, I know. This one takes a bit of a leap in price from the ones I’ve mentioned thus far (see below), but does it make you want it more knowing that when this comes off the truck I have to hide it from coworkers who want to keep it all to themselves? This stuff is nuts. A pure creamy, tropical fruit sensation in a glass. And as I said earlier, you MUST pour it out to really appreciate the wonder of it!
