Terrapin / Shmaltz Reunion 2013
For the past three years Terrapin and Shmaltz have teamed up to create Reunion Ale. (The 2010 version was brewed by Terrapin only) They have settled on a nice Brown Ale base brewed with cocoa nibs and vanilla plus and ingredient that changes each year. 2011 it was chili spices, 2012 was cinnamon and this year it alters with the addition of coffee. The beer is sweet chocolate, often described as a Tootsie Roll. The coffee is a nice addition this year, not over powering.
I always try to pick a bottle or have a draft pour of this each year. Not only because it is good, but it helps a good cause! Proceeds from the beer are used to raise money and awareness about Multiple Myeloma. For more information please visit The Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research website.
