Some will remember Stop, Collaborate, and Glisten. An instant hit for young NoDa at the time. Next October, the collaboration will come out of the barrels, ready for the big time once again.
NoDa Stop, Collaborate and Glisten is a golden ale base, ferment in wine barrels with Sauvignon Blanc grape must and wild yeast.
“When we made the decision to turn our original production facility into a barrel aging, sour, specialty house, we knew we had to bring our friends at Night Shift Brewing down to bring back one of my favorite collaborations of all time — Stop, Collaborate & Glisten,” said Chad Henderson, co-owner & head brewer of NoDa Brewing Company. “I’m excited to brew with them again.”
NoDa Stop,Collaborate & Glisten will return to bottles and taps after its time in barrels on October 29th, 2016. If you are really bold, check out their music video for this beer below.

It wasn’t enough for two breweries to collaborate. They had to make a throw-back rap video. Today, NoDa Brewing is releasing Stop, Collaborate & Glisten, their new co-brew with Night Shift Brewing in Everett, Massachussetts.
The beer is a golden ale that has been resting in white wine barrels for the past year. While the beer is probably pretty great, the video might be a little more bitter. (Pun intended.)
NoDa/Night Shift Brewing Stop, Collaborate and Glisten will available on tap at the brewery, and bottles sold (already sold out in Massachussetts!)
Enjoy the video. I see you rapping Lindsay…
Night Shift Brewing (Somerville, MA) has released Seaglass Session Ale on tap and bottles. The coastal brewery created a low ABV ale Himalayan pink salt and Hawaiian lava salt, plus grains of paradise for bite. The beer should give you a feeling of drinking in the sea breeze. This is a year round offering.

Night Shift Brewing (Everett, MA) will be releasing 2 bottles soon, and one chili pepper draft only offering:
QUAD RESERVE — The first beer in our “NSB Reserve Series,” this is a quad ale fermented with brown sugar and shiraz grape juice. We homebrewed this recipe for a while without the Shiraz juice, and it was awesome. Then we added the Shiraz, and it became even better. The Quad Reserve clocks in at 10.5% ABV and sips almost like a burgundy with bubbles. Updates about its initial release are on the way soon (follow us on Facebook and Twitter for immediate info!). In the meantime, here’s the bottle label:
SOMER WEISSE — A tribute to our Somerville homebrewing roots, this is a Berliner Weisse style sour ale brewed with lemongrass and ginger. We really enjoy Berliner Weisse beers in general, but noticed that they’re a little hard to find around here. We also wanted to “shift” the style a bit (typical beers in this category are around 3% ABV), so we cranked it up to 5.3% ABV and gave it some lemongrass and ginger kick. Some might mistake it for a tart champagne or sparkling lemonade, but it’s absolutely beer. And it’s delicious. Like the Quad Reserve, release details forthcoming (hint:Facebook. hint: Twitter). For now, check out the bottle label:
VIVA HABANERA (DRAFT) — This beer has a few people way too excited. Those people may or may not be us. Our recipe man, Rob Burns, let the Cuban half of his roots inspire this beer’s initial recipe. What he came up with was a rye ale brewed with agave nectar and aged on habanero peppers: Viva Habanera (translated from Spanish to English: “Live Habanera”).
