(Nampa, ID) – Inspired by the upcoming solar eclipse which will cut a swath right through the middle of Idaho, like-minded breweries Mother Earth Brew Co. and Payette Brewing Co. collaborated to create a beer that will bend space and time while you join the masses in observing and celebrating this monumental celestial event. “LUNARtic”- Anti-Gravity Ale with Comet and Galaxy hops and Mosaic lupulin dust. At just 4.8% ABV, this Session Pale Ale is sure to quench your thirst, while still allowing you to properly focus through your SAFE Solar Viewing Glasses!
“Collaboration brews are something we love at Payette. They give us a chance to work on recipe or ingredient ideas with other brewers, spend time at each other’s facilities and the naming of the beers is always fun. However, this collaboration is definitely unique. People will be traveling to Idaho from all over the world to experience the eclipse, so we loved the idea of doing a beer for it and as a fun way to come together with Mother Earth.” Says Mike Francis, CEO/Founder of Payette Brewing Co.
Daniel Love, CEO/Founder of Mother Earth Brew Co. ads in; “We couldn’t be more grateful to Payette Brewing in how they welcomed us to the neighborhood. It’s takes great people with skills and passion to create awesome craft beer and Payette has fully demonstrated that they are a skilled and passionate team. We are excited to celebrate this ‘Once in a Lifetime’ event with Payette and we look forward to a reciprocal collaboration with them in the future. Assuming that the world doesn’t end on August 21st of course…”
