New Trail Brewing changed the game last year. Instead of collaborating with a single beer to produce one beer at a time, they brought four breweries together to sell mixed 12-packs of collaborations. New Trail works with each of the four breweries on the included beers. The 4th expedition pack features three breweries from Southeastern Pennsylvania and one from Pittsburgh. But this isn’t the first time New Trail worked with Philly breweries on an expedition pack on a variety of styles. This pack features a Barleywine, Double IPA, American IPA, and Pilsner.
The third installment featured Levante and Sterling Pig. Now, they’ve worked with Tröegs, Hidden River, and Attic Brewing. This one will be available at all four breweries. The last expeditions saw light distribution, so the fourth should receive the same treatment.
They brewed the first beer in the 4th expedition pack, a Barleywine, with Tröegs Brewing. This beer, called Loggers Path, features Germanic malts, wheat, oats, and Cashmere and Amarillo hops.
Hidden River Brewing made a Hazy Double IPA with New Trail for this pack. Like most hazies, they used oats and wheat to give it a smooth body. This particular beer is called 120 Miles, which happens to be the approximate distance between the two breweries. They hopped it with Mosaic, Centennial, and Idaho 7.
Attic Brewing also participated in this expedition pack. They brewed an American IPA called Chaperon, brewed with tons of wheat and heavily hopped with Citra, Chinook, Comet, and Ekuanot. The entire pack is available in Attic’s online store for pickup this Friday, 4/30.
They brewed a Dry-hopped Keller Pilsner called The Ground Walks with Old Thunder Brewing of Pittsburgh. They only used German Pilsner malt and hopped it with Cascade and Tettnang.
