We like beer, we like brains, and we like teamwork, so we're loving this one.
Louis Dolgoff, head of the Beer for Brains Foundation, told us yesterday a collaborative beer specially brewed for his organization is in the works and will eventually hit national distribution.
Dolgoff says the brew will be a cooperative effort between brewers and is in talks with Jef Versele (of Belgium's Brouwerij Van Steenberge, makers of Piraat, Monk's Café and Gulden Draak). Dolgoff mentioned Tomme Arthur, head brewer at Port Brewing and The Lost Abbey in San Diego, as a second possible conspirator, though no brewer's involvement has yet been finalized.
