Captain Lawrence Effortless Grapefruit Session IPA
Captain Lawrence Brewing (Elmsford, NY) is expanding deeper into Philadelphia with the debut of a new limited release, Think Drink: Volume 1.
This draft only release is the result of a massive collaboration of bar owners and managers from the Philadelphia area got onto a charter bus and headed to the brewery to create Think Drink. The result: Think Drink: Volume 1, a dry-hopped session Saison using German Hallertau hops.
“Think Drink: Volume 1 was one of the most fun and interactive brewing projects that we have ever been a part of here at the brewery,” says Vaccaro, who entered the Philadelphia market after partnering with top beer distributor Muller, Inc. this past October. “We were able to work closely with the industry professionals actually serving our beer, handing each one individual surveys asking for their suggestions on what they wanted this beer to be, and then inviting them all for a personal tour of our brewery.”
