GEORGETOWN, Del. -- 16 Mile Brewery in Georgetown is teaming up with a craft beer legend. Wednesday, they got to work on a new brew, the latest installment of their "Collaboration brews for a good cause."
Teaming up with Pete Slosberg, the founder of "Pete's Wicked Ales," is a dream come true for the folks at 16 mile.
"Pete is someone I've had a great amount of admiration and respect for. I've been in this industry 20 years and he's really one of the fathers of the craft revolution," said Claus Hagelman.
You may remember other charity beers like the "Responders Ale," but this one is a little different. Pete Slosberg got an idea for a different kind of brew after getting ice cream with his 91 year old father.
"So I thought wouldn't it be crazy to do a wild idea never been done hot fudge Sunday beer before," Slosberg says.
It's called a "Hot Fudge Sunday Stout"using cherry, chocolate, and vanilla. All ingredients are grown locally, and all the profits are staying in the community. They will benefit the Delaware River and Bay Lighthouse Foundation.
"So I'm excited about it wont be a bitter beer it hopefully won't be a sweet beer just be this combination of flavors," Pete says.
The beer will be available around Labor Day, and will be sold at their Georgetown location as well as local stores.
Once the cost of making the beer is covered, everything else will be donated directly to the Delaware River and Bay Lighthouse Foundation.
