New brew draws upon local ingredients to deliver unique fall flavor
PRESS RELEASE / October 17, 2019 (Boston, MA) – Two Boston-based food and beverage brands have partnered to bring a locally inspired beer to Bostonians this fall. B.GOOD, the industry pioneer in providing great tasting, responsibly sourced fare, and Bent Water Brewing Co., a Lynn-based brewery, have come together to launch Good Water, a staghorn and dandelion saison.
Beginning today, Good Water will be available at the Bent Water Brewing Co. taproom in Lynn, where it will also be available for purchase in 16 oz. cans. At 6 percent ABV, Good Water is a farmhouse ale that brings together ingredients harvested on B.GOOD’s Hannah Farm, specifically sumac and dandelion root, and locally malted barley grown in Northern Maine.
Both brands have a unique connection to local ingredients. At B.GOOD, ingredients are sourced locally as much as possible throughout the chain’s footprint. For Bent Water, Lynn’s superior water source was a key factor in the decision to plant their roots there, and it continues to play an important role ensuring their products’ quality and consistency.
“It’s been really exciting to see how we can take unique and unusual ingredients from Hannah Farm and create a product that’s outside of our normal wheelhouse, but reflects our commitment to “Food with Roots,’” said Hadrien Delande, Vice President of Brand Marketing, B.GOOD. “We couldn’t think of a better partner than Bent Water – in addition to our shared commitment to local, they likewise have a similar appetite for innovation, which has made for a fruitful partnership.”
“We’re thrilled to launch Good Water in partnership with B.GOOD, and view this beer as a tribute to all the farmers, including those at B.GOOD, who make craft beer possible,” said Adam Denny Golab, Head Brewer, Bent Water Brewing Co. “Through our partnership, we were able to incorporate unconventional ingredients from B.GOOD’s Hannah Farm. Rather than creating a beer that masks the distinct taste – and color – of the ingredients, Good Water brings those flavors to the forefront.”
To celebrate the launch, the duo will be hosting a launch party at Bent Water Brewing Co., located at 180 Commercial Street, Lynn, MA 01905, on Thursday, October 17 at 6 p.m.
