A Naughty Girl Collaboration

Naughty Girl Small

Another Struise U.S. collaboration(s) is about to be unleashed on the drinking world – Naughty Girl.  Urbain Coutteau of De Struise travelled to Louisville, Kentucky and visited with Tyler Trotter & Lori Beck.  The duo own Louisville Beer Store & Holy Grale in the city.  The visit gave a rise to 2 collaborations with Struise, brewed at each of New Albanian Brewing’s locations across the Ohio River in Indiana.   You’ll meet collaboration #2 soon.  The first: Naughty Girl.

Naughty Girl was brewed at the Bank Street location on May 8, 2011.  A Belgian IPA.

It started out as a Belgo-American ménage a trois, but then the brewers arrived and transformed the trans-oceanic affair into a beery love pentangle.   The collaborative minds at Louisville Beer Store, De Struise Brouwers and New Albanian Brewing Company offer this, a willfully disobedient Blonde India Pale  Ale with a  hop on her shoulder.
