WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., 2016-Dec-01 — /EPR Retail News/ — Lowes Foods stores with a Beer Den are celebrating November with a special CollaBEERation with Natty Greene’s Brewing featuring the brewery’s Boxcar Latte Ale. The beer is a brown ale with perfected flavors of coffee with cream & sugar. Natty Green’s brewed the beer with lactose and finished it with Lowes Foods’ signature Boxcar coffee.
“During select months, Lowes Foods partners with a different Carolinas-based brewery to create a oneof-a-kind beer in limited supply. Each Lowes Foods’ Beer Den gets one keg of the beer, and it usually goes fast,” Charles Slezak, Lowes Foods’ category manager for beer and wine said. “Natty Green’s Boxcar Latte Ale is now available in our Beer Dens. The beer has a wonderful flavor profile. I recommend enjoying a glass soon before it’s too late!”
Slezak said the December CollaBEERation will be with Draft Line Brewing to serve Swiggy Puddin’ Scotch Ale a malty, slightly sweet base of Scotch Ale with the flavor and aroma of freshly baked cinnamon rolls. During the past few months, Lowes Foods has featured CollaBEERations with a number of other local breweries including Foothills Brewery, Hi-Wire Brewing, Bold Rock Hard Cider and Highland Brewing Company.
