Perrin Brewing has joined with Union Beer Distributors to introduce the Perrin line-up to the craft beer scene of New York. Perrin, based in Comstock Park, Michigan will offer year-round core brands, seasonal, and specialty bottles including No Rules, Vietnamese Imperial Porter, Black Ale, Gold Ale, 98 Problems IPA, and Grapefruit IPA.
The growth for Perrin Brewing has continued after a collaborative partnership with Oskar Blues Brewery (the first craft brewery in the US to can its beer) in Longmont, Colorado in 2015. Part of this continued growth is from the addition of canned packaging making Perrin beer available in most major retailers across the market. Since the rollout of can distribution, Perrin is prepared to offer packaged beer in several states outside of Michigan.
“No Rules” a 15% Vietnamese Imperial Porter is brewed with coconut, cinnamon and turbinado sugar then laid down and aged in bourbon barrels. RateBeer ranked “No Rules” in the Top 10 in the world for Imperial, Baltic Porters of 2016 and was ranked the World’s Top New Beer Release of 2015. The online ratings of “No Rules” is a score of 100 for Style and 100 for the Overall categories; ending in a perfect RateBeer score.
“The cinnamon is an “old trick” from growing up as a beekeeper. Mead makers use to cinnamon to mask alcohol warmth, as it helped smooth out this brew,” mentioned John Stewart, Director of Brewing Operations at Perrin. “No Rules really shines as a dessert pairing. The turbinado sugar, a raw unfinished sugar brings out notes of maple and molasses.”
Perrin Brewing distribution into New York market begins in mid/late April.
