Pastry Stout collaboration

Big Ditch Brewing, Upstate Brewing Produce New Pastry Stout

The New York State pipeline between our very own Big Ditch Brewing and Elmira’s Upstate Brewing is alive and well as the two breweries have collaborated on a new 6.6% ABV pastry stout, Group Hug, which will be available on December 27 at Big Ditch. This s’mores stout is loaded with cacao nibs, lactose, graham crackers, cinnamon and marshmallows. The beer will be available both on draft and in cans at the brewery. The two breweries have previously colluded on BDU Collaboration IPA, a hazy, hoppy beer with flavors of ripe peach and lemon zest, which was released last year.
