Saint Archer Releases Collaboration with Girl Skateboards Posted on 02 Sep 20:54
SEPTEMBER 3, 2014. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
San Diego's Saint Archer Brewing Company is proud to announce a very special release—and our first collaboration beer—with The Girl Skateboard Company. The new beer, a Hoppy Pilsner, will be available in 12 oz six pack cans throughout Southern California early September 2014.
"We've been approached for interesting collaborations before, but this effort with Girl involved us approaching them," says President and Founder of Saint Archer, Josh Landan. "Girl is devoted to creativity and progression in skateboarding just as Saint Archer strives to progress craft brewing, keeping creativity front and center," Landan goes on to say.
The new beer is modeled after the pilsners brewed in Northern Germany. The beer has a firm bitterness from using European hops and a pale straw color that comes from using all German grain. This combination is then fermented with a German Lager Yeast, and allowed to lager in the tank. The blend of ingredients and time create a crisp, clean, flavorful, yet refreshing beer.
The Girl Skateboards Company is headquartered in Torrance, Calif. Two of Saint Archer's Ambassadors, Eric Koston and Sean Malto, are also part of the Girl Skateboard Family, adding to the story of this unique collaboration. It doesn't hurt that Koston, arguably the most influential street skater of all time, also has a passion for craft beer that is unmatched.
