Man Crush Saison by Smartmouth and Green Flash Brewing now available
(Norfolk, VA) – As San Diego-based Green Flash Brewing Co prepares to break ground on their 2nd brewery in Virginia Beach, Brewmaster Chuck Silva has been building new friendships with like-minded breweries in the area. This is the first ever collaboration for Smartmouth and it is the first collaboration with a Virginia brewery for Green Flash. Smartmouth’s Head Brewer, Greg Papp, warmly welcomed Chuck into their brew-house last month for a weeklong brew-session. The result of their union is Man Crush Saison , an outrageously hoppy twist on the Belgian classic. This exceptional beer is named in honor of Greg and Chuck’s laid back and jovial approach to the collaborative process, and is a celebration of the spirit of the brewing community. Man Crush was developed and brewed in Norfolk at the Smartmouth facility and will be available in limited quantity beginning in April within the state of Virginia through Smartmouth distribution.
