To celebrate 417 Magazine's 20th anniversary, we wanted to work on a beer collaboration that shows off the spirit of the community we love so much. Who better to ask than Mother's Brewing Co.? The brewery connects people in 417-land through events and—of course—a common love for delicious beer.
And, can you believe it, they said yes! We are so honored to become part of the Mother's family, and we can't wait for you to try what their beer gurus have come up with for us. After some very serious tasting, deliberation and, alright, more tasting, we are pleased to announce our collaboration with Mother’s, the Mother’s Brewing Company Collaboration Series: 417 Magazine.
To state the obvious, beer doesn’t just appear out of thin air. There’s the brainstorming process; in this case, Mother’s brewmaster David Soper plotted the types of beer he wanted to present to us to sample. He already had a few ideas in his back pocket prior to connecting with us, and when we arrived at Mother’s on a secret mission in March, he gave us two options: an Irish dry stout and a New England–style IPA.
