Gun Hill Brewing Co Frosted Hop Ale Release Event



Join BeerUnion and Gun Hill Brewing Co. tomorrow for the release of the brewery’s Frosted Hop Strong Ale which the two collaborated in making! The event will be held this Saturday, January 10th at 6pm (more details below!)

From the folks at BeerUnion:

“After finishing up our book tour this fall we thought it would be a great idea to do a collaboration beer with a brewery in the city that could highlight ingredients from New York State. Naturally we thought of Gun Hill (they are one of several brewers in the city with a farm brewery license). Owner Dave Lopez informed us that they were planning to release a beer called Frosted Hop Strong Ale using New York State hops. We decided that I would head up to the Bronx to help Brewmaster Chris Sheehan on brew day and we’d collaborate on a release party to benefit a local charity.

Gun Hill will be releasing the beer at the brewery on Saturday January 10, at 6 p.m. The $5 entry fee, along with a portion of every pint of Frosted Hop, and 10% of all the sales from our book Beer Lover’s New York during the event will be donated to Artsmith, a not for profit based in the Bronx. I hope to see you there!”
