Craft Brewing and Distilling News for June 15, 2015June 15, 2015
•Brooklyn Brewery continues to think global. The Brooklyn, New York-based craft brewer has formed an alliance with Coopers Brewery that will see the Australian brewer produce Brooklyn’s beers down under. Brooklyn said the move follows increasing demand for its brews in Australia, which it entered in 2011. It previously distributed the Coopers line in New York before spinning off its distribution arm a decade ago. In April, Brooklyn unveiled a joint venture with Carlsberg in Norway—a year after the craft brewer and the Danish brewing giant formed a similar venture in Sweden.
•Boston Beer’s Samuel Adams brand has launched the 2015 edition of its LongShot variety six-pack. Featuring the winning entries from the brewer’s annual LongShot American Homebrew Contest, this year’s pack includes two bottles each of Greg Rasmussen’s Raspy’s Robust Porter, Matthew Knott’s Smokehouse Rauchbier and John Marra’s Dark Night in Brooklyn Dunkelweiss. The 2015 Samuel Adams LongShot six-pack is currently available nationwide through July, priced at around $8.99-$10.99 each. The LongShot American Homebrew Contest was created by Samuel Adams founder Jim Koch to showcase the work of talented homebrewers from around country.
