Lost Abbey – The Other TEA Party – You Decide!
Forget about sitting around the TV on election night waiting to hear what empty suit will be elected to office to do whatever it is when empty suits get elected to office. (Spend money, usually.) We’re giving you the chance to vote on something that really matters.
As you may know, we have a beer series called T.E.A., an abbreviation for Traditional Experimental Ales, a variety of beers — sours mostly — that include real tea from our friends at Republic of Tea. To date, we’ve only released one (code named the “Arnold Palmer” for it’s light, lemonade / iced tea flavor), which was available at Stone Brewing’s 14th Anniversary celebration.
What you may not know, however, is that our brewers have been working on a variety of T.E.A.s with a number of different flavors and styles. And being the democracy-minded folks we are at the Lost Abbey, we’ve decided to let you pick which one makes it’s way out into the world.
So, election night, Tuesday, November 2, 2010, we’re turning our tasting room into a Town Hall where you can come in, sample all the T.E.A.s and vote for which one you think is the best. The winner will go on to become a Lost Abbey special release in 2011.
