Cool Vines, 276 Grove, has teamed up with Queens-based brewer, Transmitter, for their very own unique beer. Available in limited quantities solely through Cool Vines here and in Princeton, the beer will be called CV1.
CV1 is is a collaboration between CoolVines Beer and Spirits Leader, Matt Colvin, and the team at Transmitter Brewing. It's a mixed culture, bottle-conditioned saison ale that's been aged for one year in white wine barrels from Red Hook Winery. It was brewed specifically to be food-friendly and approachable, with soft oaky flavors and a little tartness.
It will be released for the first time tonight and to start it off in style, Cool Vines is having a small release party from 5-8pm, conplete with tastings of the beer and some of the snacks around the store. There is a limit of three bottles per customer for purchase.
