Attempting to create something good from an unfortunate tragedy is Redhook’s Ben Harris Beer. Ben died from wounds received from an exploding keg. To honor Ben’s life, Redhook has created a beer in his honor. Ben Harris Beer is a cream ale, one Redhook thought Ben would enjoy the most. It has already debuted on draft this past weekend.
Draft will make it’s way to tap handles nationally, with bottles hitting New England markets of New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts, including his home state of Pennsylvania. (August)
