Lefty's Brewing Company & Abandoned Building Brewery teamed up to brew an exclusive beer in honor of Western Mass Beer Week. (This is the second year for this collab brew due to it's popularity last year.) Located in industrial brick buildings in the Pioneer Valley, these two breweries set their dreams to reality by becoming a strong part of the amazing local beer scene in Western Mass. They aged an extremely tasty imperial stout with a harmonious grain bill on bourbon barrel chips, which offers rich layers of oak, coffee & chocolate, with a silky hint of vanilla, biscuit, & honey. The beer will be on tap and for sale to go in 16oz cans at Abandoned Building Brewery.
