DuClaw Releases A 2012 Special

DuClaw Brewing Company in Bel Air announced its 2012 special H.E.R.O. '12 beer, and they're raising money for the family of a employee killed at the Redhook Brewery in New Hampshire.

DuClaw has run a contest where they ask home brewers to submit their beer varieties.  They pick one to produce and sell.  This year's winner is Chocolate Chipotle Stout.

The beer will go on sale on October 24.  You'll be able to buy 22-ounce bottles at places like Perfect Pour in Elkridge, i.m. Wine in Fulton or Jason's Wine & Spirits in Ellicott City.  DuClaw is often on tap at locals like TBonz Grille and Judge's Bench in Ellicott City, Frisco Taphouse and Victoria Gastro Pub in Columbia, and Kloby's Smokehouse on Johns Hopkins Road.

The proceeds will go for a fund to benefit the wife and unborn child of Ben Harris, a Redhook employee who died when a plastic keg he was cleaning exploded.

I'm glad to see that the proceeds are going to Ben Harris' family. That story was so sad and tragic, it really hit home with a lot of us in the homebrewing community. The folks are DuClaw are absolutely outstanding people and we are extremely lucky to have them and their fine beers here in Maryland.
