Start Line Brewing Toasts the Boston Marathon Runners with Marathon American Wheat Ale

The Boston Marathon is woven within the fabric of Start Line Brewing Company’s culture.

From its name, to its location -- less than one mile away from the start line of the historic race -- founder, Ted Twinney, wanted to ensure that his new brewery was a nod to the community, and to all of the people who help make marathon season so special.

From the runners to charities, cheerleaders and volunteers, Hopkinton is where it all begins. In honor of the 121st race, set for Monday, April 17, Start Line Brewing Co. has released Its Marathon American Style Wheat Ale showcasing citrus and floral notes, balanced with bready maltiness, delivered in a smooth mouthfeel. Designed to be distinctively refreshing with an ABV of 5.5%

“This beer celebrates our community and all who take on the 26.2-mile challenge to raise money for charity or to test their personal strength along the course,” says Twinney. “We are proud to support the runners and wish them luck next month.”

During the past few months, Start Line’s tap room, located at 151R Hayden Rowe Street in Hopkinton, has played host to several charity events for runners helping them to reach their fundraising goals.

The Start Line crew will also be at the finish line, donating beer and support for the Spaulding Rehabilitation Center team, which worked with many of the Boston Marathon bombing victims, to help get them back on their feet.
