Reader’s Relief beer @ ShuBrew
Sep 24 @ 4:00 pm – Sep 30 @ 9:00 pm

We asked ShuBrew to create a special beer for our 100th Anniversary.  It’s called Reader’s Relief, and it will be on tap at ShuBrew starting Thursday, Sept 24th.

ShuBrew will be donating $1 per pint sold, to the Library.

ShuBrew brewed a fruited Berliner Weiss in honor of the occasion.  Zachary Shumaker, Brewer, chose a German beer because of the German ancestry in the area, and it uses all German grains and hops, plus strawberries and raspberries.  It will be 5-6% alcohol by volume, and will be mildly tart.  It is likely to appeal to both the regular and rare beer drinker.  Interestingly, it will be light pink in color.
