Branford, Connecticut-based Stony Creek Brewery revealed its first-ever collaboration with Fairfield, Connecticut-based The Bigelow Tea Company. The collaboration includes two new beers that are infused with Bigelow’s iconic teas, creating No Comment and Carpe Tea-em. A rich, drinkable German-style lager, No Comment features an infusion of Bigelow’s Constant Comment Tea, a blend of black tea, orange peel and sweet spices. Carpe Tea-em is a complex Hefeweizen bursting with the aroma and flavor of bright citrus bergamot fruit delivered by Bigelow’s Earl Grey Tea. The unfermented beer is brought to a boil before the hops are added, creating the ideal time to steep the tea. The tea is then brewed directly into the beer. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Bigelow Tea, a local, family-owned business with a commitment and passion for both their tea and their community,” said Ed Crowley Jr., President, Stony Creek Brewery. “As a family-owned business, we share the same passion for our beer, and our values align with our strong commitment to our community.” The new brews are distributed in the Ocean State by Horizon Beverage Co. of Rhode Island – Wayne division.
