Branford-based Stony Creek Brewery launched its new Save the Sound Light Lager, developed in collaboration with regional environmental nonprofit group Save the Sound, which leads environmental action and preservation across the Long Island Sound region. For every purchase made, Stony Creek Brewery will donate a portion of the proceeds to the group. Save the Sound Light Lager is a Helles lager, crafted with the finest floor-malted German malts and balanced with a hint of earthy Tettnanger hops. The result is a bright and crisp beer with a slightly sweet flavor and a light mouthfeel at 4% ABV. The new beer highlights “the value of shared natural resources” and is set to raise money to protect and improve the land, air and water of Connecticut and Long Island Sound. “Save the Sound and Stony Creek Brewery share a love of Long Island Sound and the outdoors, so it was natural to work together,” said Ed Crowley Sr., Founder, Stony Creek Brewery. “When we developed Save the Sound Light Lager, we thought about where it would be enjoyed. This crisp, light lager is perfectly suited to a day appreciating the outdoors. Everyone who purchases the lager will be helping to protect the outdoor places they enjoy.” The beer is sold on tap at Stony Creek Brewery and in distribution through retail locations. To minimize the use of plastic, the lager is available in eco-friendly cardboard packaging.
