Locally Crafted Beer Debuts at Spring Hill College

Braided River Brewing Company has partnered with Spring Hill College to debut Portier Pale Ale, locally brewed just for the College. Crafted by Hannah Shankman, a 2019 alumna of Spring Hill, the ale will launch next Thursday, Feb. 10, 2022, at 6:00 pm at McKinney’s at The Hill on the campus of Spring Hill College.

“The beer is super sessionable,” said Shankman, meaning that it contains low levels of alcohol. These kinds of beers are easily drinkable, light and refreshing. “It’s styled to fit the kick-back vibe that McKinney’s gives,” continued Shankman. Reminiscent of Braided River’s Hang Loose Brew, Shankman said, “It’s super juicy so you can easily pick out the orange and pineapple flavor notes. The bitterness is dialed way down so that all beer lovers from beginners to seasoned can enjoy it.”

Join Braided River and Aramark, at McKinney’s for the launch event at 6:00 pm which is open to the public. The first 50 people to attend will get a custom pint glass. There will also be t-shirts, swag, music and games, snacks – and of course beer!

Braided River is a locally operated brewery that is focused on crafting quality products inspired by the Gulf Coast and on sustainability efforts. For more information about Braided River Brewing Company visit https://www.braidedriverbrewing.com/
