Prescott Brewing Company PBC has volunteered to brew a special commemorative beer next week at our production plant here in Prescott in collaboration with the 40 or so INDEPENDENT craft breweries who are members of the AZ Craft Brewers Guild. It will contain 19 varieties of hops and this beer will have a color of 19 (on our color scale) all being donated by the individual breweries, with all the specialty malts being donated by Briess Malting in Wisconsin. 60 barrels of beer (1860 gallons, over 14,000 Pints) Brewed & kegged in Prescott and distributed to our member breweries all over the state for sale on draft with all the proceeds going to Prescott Firefighters Charities. Hensley Beverage is helping with all the distribution & keg coordination, maybe other distributors as well. "Heroes 19" American Brown Ale should hit the taps around the end of July. Hooray for the Independents in all walks of life. Support your local businesses and heroes! Even if they're in another town!
