Exhibit ‘A’ Brewing Company in Framingham, MA has just released Demo Tape Twelve: Rewind, an IPA, in collaboration with Amazing Things Arts Center. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this beer goes to Amazing Things Arts Center and their mission to support local artists.
This IPA is a re-release of Demo Tape Twelve which originally came out in May. It was Lead Brewer Dunstan Liias’ first solo beer and was a delicious cross between a West Coast and New England style IPA and was a big hit with customers. This re-release (or Rewind) is a similar recipe but with even more Mosaic hops. It has the solid bitterness you want from an IPA along with a very citrus forward Mosaic hop aroma and flavor. It comes in at 6.9% ABV.
Artwork for the new label was done by Amazing Things Arts Center artist, Melanie Christopher and reflects her personal vision of the Demo Tape labels. "Exhibit ‘A’ has been a fantastic partner, between inviting us to fill their space with local artwork and creating this beer for our benefit, its been so great to work with them! The proceeds from this beer will help us continue to bring great music and local art to Framingham!” said Melanie, Gallery Coordinator at Amazing Things Arts Center. "We are particularly excited to continue our partnership with Exhibit ‘A’ through this special beer. We're so grateful to have a microbrewery so committed to serving their local community” said Ellen Sturgis, Executive Director of Amazing Things Arts Center. You can see and purchase artwork by Melanie and other local artists in the Morton Street Gallery located in the Exhibit ‘A’ taproom which is another way the two organizations are collaborating.. Kelsey Roth, General Manager at Exhibit ‘A’ Brewing Company said, “We are thrilled to not only partner with Amazing Things and support local artists, but also to have Melanie’s fun artistic style on our labels. We always felt a kinship between the art of beer and the other arts like music, dance and of course media art. So to have a beer that brings these together is pretty awesome.”
Proceeds from the sale of this beer go directly to Amazing Things Arts Center and their mission to support local artists. “We are lucky to have such an active and vibrant arts center located so close to us. Being able to help support that is an important part of what we do and helps to build a great community here in Framingham” said Kelsey.
Demo Tape Twelve: Rewind is available for sale now in cans and on draft in the taproom. A small number of cases will go out to retail stores in Massachusetts. A party to celebrate this beer and the collaboration is planned for Thursday, January 4 from 6-9pm at Exhibit ‘A’ Brewing Company.
Amazing Things Arts Center is located at 160 Hollis Street in Downtown Framingham. To see what's coming up at amazing things visit their website!
