Townie salutes the neighborhoods all over Massachusetts, as well as the people who call them home. For co-brewer Dan McGuire, Irish by descent with impeccable taste in beer, this was the beer that must be brewed. Whether you’re Irish or not, you’ll understand why.
Story: For our 3rd collaboration, brewers Dan McGuire and Russ Heissner selected Pale and Dark Crystal Malts for big flavor with a smooth finish. Apollo and Cascade hops lend a balanced floral essence. It's important to note that Dan not only knows his beer. He's also the mastermind behind BHZ's legendary macanadas, a masterpiece that fills crispy empandas with creamy mac 'n cheese. Townie & macanadas? Match made in heaven.
