Peaks and Pints New Beer in Stock 2.21.24


Peaks and Pints New Beer in Stock 2.21.24

Five beers from 12 Percent Beer Project in North Haven, Connecticut, arrived at Peaks & Pints today. In October 2008, Brian Ewing launched Twelve Percent Imports selling imported beer to New York out of his Toyota Prius. The first beer he imported was Gaverhopke Extra, a 12 percent Belgian ale, thus the name of his distributing company. Ewing began distributing an unusually heavy roster of gypsy brewers and contract brewed beer such as American Solera from Tulsa and Fat Orange Cat Brew Co. from East Hampton, Connecticut. He eventually partnered with Alex Blank to form Twelve Percent Beer Project, a contract brewing facility at State Street Brewing in North Haven, Connecticut. Many of Ewing and Blank artisan brewery clients don’t have a brewing facility or have a tiny brewhouse that can’t support large releases. The Twelve Percent Beer Project allows such breweries to brew at State Street. The operation is like an independent record label when Ewing and Blank help their artists create craft beer then promote them through their distributorship.
