Cloudwater's Together Again initiative is intended to rebuild bridges, bring people together and celebrate the connections made through beer. It’s a celebration of the friends they love working with, the independent venues like Kraft Werks that share their beer with enthusiastic drinkers and the bonds formed through deep conversation and easy laughter in those venues.
These are some of the first in-person collaborations Cloudwater have been able to brew this year and they've worked with seven different breweries on six beers that will be sold exclusively through independent pubs, bars and retailers.
The breweries involved are all smaller breweries who we believe deserve your time and attention. All of them are creating excellent beer with a strong sense of identity and personality, working hard to forge their own paths and create sustainable futures in challenging circumstances.
Cloudwater have worked with them to create the following beers, which they're really proud of:
Slow & Low - Imperial Smoked Baltic Porter, Cloudwater x Donzoko - a rich Imperial Baltic Porter brewed with a portion of smoked malts. 10.0%
Sunset Wilds - Red IPA, Cloudwater x Elusive - a truly red Red IPA, which combines both classic and modern hops. 6.0%
What Now? What Next? - Hibiscus and Raspberry Stout, Cloudwater x Rock Leopard - an export strength Stout given a twist through additions of raspberry and hibiscus. 7.5%
When It Pours It Rains - TIPA, Cloudwater x Rivington - big juicy TIPA dry hopped with Strata and Sabro. 10.0%
