This Saturday Black Hat Brew Works is releasing Such a Good Boy, a 5.1% Cream Ale. The beer name and inaugural run was inspired by Blue Dog, a 12-year old golden retriever who was Such a Good Boy and the official Brew Dog of BHBW.
Blue passed away last month, and they wanted to honor him with the first label. The beer will have a constantly changing dog on the label to keep it fun. Black Hat Brew Works plans to donate a portion of the proceeds from this beer to local South East Massachusetts Animal Shelters and will choose a different organization every quarter.
Blue’s parents, Dave and Liz Usowicz, would bring Blue in two or three times a week to the dog-friendly Bridgewater taproom. In addition, they have always helped out around the brewery by volunteering for all of Black Hat’s events including at Pints, Pups and Pictures with Santa last weekend. Dave was one of the two Santas for the event.
The beer will be available at the brewery as well as in cans, kegs and out in full distribution with Liberated Beverage. So grab a pint and say a toast to Blue who was Such A Good Boy!
