GoodLife, Bend Brewing collaboration

GoodLife BrewingI’m a big fan of collaboration brews, and here in Bend Tonya Cornett of Bend Brewing is the go-to brewer for collaboration: in addition to numerous collaboration with Sean Paxton (the Homebrew Chef), she has also brewed with Tomme Arthur of The Lost Abbey and JD Wetherspoon’s in England. And now, she’s teamed up with GoodLife Brewing‘s Curt Plants for a Scotch Ale that GoodLife is releasing tomorrow:

Come join us on Wednesday, November 30th from 5pm-9pm to celebrate St. Andrews Day, which is the National Day of Scotland, and the release of Scottish Heart Scotch Ale. St. Andrew is the Patron Saint of Scotland, and Scots celebrate this day around the world. Bag pipers will be on location to create an authentic Scottish feel and an experience that you will not forget.

This caramelized, malt forward Scotch Ale is brewed in honor of St. Andrew and is a brave, collaborative effort of two brewers, Tonya Cornett of Bend Brewing Company & Curt Plants of GoodLife Brewing Company. This beer is fantastic – Slainte Mhath! (Cheers or Good Health in Scottish Gaelic, pronounced “Slanchay Va”!)

The release party takes place from 5 to 9pm tomorrow evening (the 30th).
