Collaboration #3

Collaboration #3 anyone? After the booming success of the Deschutes/Boulevard collaboration white IPA why not #3. According to an article published over at, Boulevard will be teaming up with Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project for just that. The target style is a Stingo. Now if that doesn’t sound like one of those weird sexual positions I don’t know what does, sorry I digress. A “Stingo” is a barrel-aged English style ale that describes how this beer “stings” the palette. The brew is planned to have wood, fruit, and some sourness in the taste arsenal. Does a sour-barrel-aged-English ale sound strange to anyone else? Strange or not this should be one interesting brew.

Pretty Things Beer is a husband and wife team (Dann and Martha Paquette)of gypsy brewers. They travel around and brew their own concoctions at host breweries around the country. The Collabo #3 was conceived over a beer between Pauwels and the Paquette’s at a Boston beer festival. To check out more about Pretty Things Beer visit their website
