(Boston, MA – May 29, 2013) On May 17th, Trillium Brewing, in collaboration with The Publick House, BeerAdvocate and Valley Malt, brewed a new beer called “OneBoston” with a goal to raise money for The One Fund Boston, which provides assistance to those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings.
OneBoston is an American IPA with a grist including locally grown and malted rye and crystal oats contributed by Valley Malt, located in Hadley, Mass. An unfiltered, hazy ale with 50 IBUs, most of its Columbus, Chinook and Falconer’s Flight hops were reserved for whirlpool and post-fermentation additions in order to retain as much of the delicate aromatic oils in the finished beer. 7.5% alcohol by volume.
“OneBoston was brewed in response to our need to help those most gravely impacted by the terrible things that happened, while at the same time, celebrating the heroes that rose up as a result,” said Trillium founder and brewer JC Tetreault. “The folks at The Publick House, BeerAdvocate and Valley Malt were immediately supportive when approached with the idea.”
David Ciccolo, owner of The Publick House, added: “I believe I speak for all of us involved in this project when I say how privileged we are to use our collective passion for craft beer to give back to those affected by this senseless tragedy.”
OneBoston will be released on Wednesday, June 5th at 5pm at The Publick House in Brookline, Mass.; no cover, pay as you consume. The beer will also be available for 32oz and 64oz growler fills at the brewery, at 369 Congress Street in Boston, starting on June 6th at 4pm.
“We’re giving back the best way we can, by raising awareness through the craft beer community. We also plan on donating one dollar for every OneBoston sold on June 5th, so we encourage people to come down and drink the kegs dry,” stated BeerAdvocate co-founder Todd Alström.
100 percent of the net proceeds from OneBoston sales will be donated to The One Fund Boston, which directly benefits the families of the victims who were killed and those most seriously affected by the tragic events that occurred during the Boston Marathon on April 15th, 2013, as well as related events on April 18th and 19th, 2013.
