Anarchy Brew Co. is proud to announce its next collaboration is with Hackney Brewery (London) and Kings County Brewers Collective (New York). Owners Dawn and Simon Miles are flying across to New York later this week, alongside Brewing Manager Les Stoker, and Marketing Manager, Daisy Turnell, and being joined in New York by Steve Lawler, Brewer at Hackney Brewery.

Simon said, “Dawn and I visited KCBC’s taproom when we were on holiday in December last year, and met Tony and Pete. We clicked instantly over Harley-Davidson’s and saw synergy between our brands’ artwork, so bikes and a love of beer cemented our friendship after a night in their amazing brew house”.

A night out in London with Jon and Steve from Hackney Brewery then followed earlier this year, with the two British breweries meeting up for a few pints at the Euston Tap. Simon said “Les and I were then treated to a tour of Hackney Brewery, thanks to Jon. The lab equipment they have invested in is really impressive, and something we’ve really learned from”.

Jon Swain, Co-Owner of Hackney Brewery said, “Last year, we tried to fit as many collaborations into our brewing schedule as possible. As a small craft brewery, we value being able to work closely with other teams. It’s always a fantastic learning experience for everyone involved and the spirit behind knowledge sharing is indicative of what craft beer is all about. So when the chance to brew with both our friends at KCBC in New York and Anarchy in Newcastle came up, we saw an opportunity to put our heads together with two talented breweries and create something that was both challenging to brew and easy to drink.”  

The collaboration beer is a pink peppercorn, passion fruit & hibiscus saison, and will be brewed on Thursday 4th April at KCBC’s brewery in Brooklyn.

Pete Lengyel, Co-Owner / Brew Commander at KCBC added, “We’re super excited to welcome our friends from across the pond to collaborate on this year’s spring seasonal saison. Pink Panthalope will be released into the wilds of NYC this April.  Look for it at your local watering hole”.
