Randolph & Transmitter Brewing Launch Custom Beer
Randolph Group, a NYC-based hospitality group with locations in downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn, has partnered with Transmitter Brewing, a nanobrewery located in Long Island City, to create a custom beer that will be exclusively sold at Randolph Beer and Randolph Brooklyn for a limited time beginning July 2nd.
Randolph Beer’s Certified Cicerone, Kyle Kensrue, approached Transmitter Brewing with the idea of creating a Randolph exclusive beer. Located in his neighborhood, Kyle has become a fan of the brewery and his included Transmitter beers in previous events.
The exclusive beer –R1 (abv: 6.3%) – is a dry-hopped Saison brewed, a beer trend for summer 2015, with malted barley, wheat and rye. The R1 is generously dry-hopped with a proprietary hop called TNT, giving it aromas of intense sweet fruits, red berries and citrus with a touch of caramel and green fruits. The custom Saison is a smooth malt body with bright aromatic hops lifting from the glass with a dry finish and a light amber color. This dry-hopped Saison beer was chosen as it’s a current trend in the beer industry and it’s an approachable, enjoyable beer for the Randolph clientele.
