BEER RELEASE: Collaboration Not Litigation Ale
Collaboration Not Litigation Ale
It all started back in the early aughts, when Vinnie Cilurzo, of Russian River Brewing, and Adam Avery, of Avery Brewing, met at the Great American Beer Festival. After becoming friends the two soon realized that each brewed a beer called Salvation; Avery’s a Belgian Golden Ale and Cilurzo’s a Belgian Strong Ale.
Preferring a creative solution to their naming conflict, the two brewers chose to blend their respective brews together–and continue with brewing the brews individually, we should add–to create a new and increasingly complex libation that captured the unique qualities of each beer.
After a collaborative brew session in late 2006, Batch #1 of Collaboration Not Litigation Ale was born and bottled at Avery Brewing in February of 2007.
Separate brews of our respective Salvations–each brewed and fermented in strict accordance with the brewers original recipe–were blended and bottled earlier this week as Collaboration Not Litigation Ale.
Look for Collaboration Not Litigation Ale in 22oz bottles and on tap throughout CO and across the nation beginning in February 2010. Suggested retail price is $8 per bottle.
