The Randolph Exclusive Summer Saison – R1, In Collaboration with Transmitter Brewing
Beginning on July 16, 2015, Randolph Beer and Randolph Brooklyn of NYC’s premier Randolph Group is serving up what promises to be one of the summer’s hottest beer trends in New York City – the exclusive -R1!
Kyle Kensrue, Randolph Beer’s own Certified Cicerone, partnered with Transmitter Brewing of Long Island City in a collaboration that gave rise to the R1, a generously dry-hopped 6.3% ABV Saison ale brewed with malted barley, wheat, rye and spiced with a proprietary hop called TNT. This approachable and enjoyable amber Saison has a smooth malt body with bright aromatic hops finishing dry and light. Intense aromas of red berries and citrus, sweet fruits and a touch of green fruits and caramel fill the nose.
The brewers of the R1 Randolph exclusive, Transmitter Brewing, is a nanobrewery in Long Island City specializing in farmhouse ales and have secured over 20 isolated strains of Pediococcus, Lactobacillus and and Brettanomyces, in addition to their American, Belgian, English and French yeasts.
Transmitter Brewing is located at 53-02 11th Street, Queens, NY 11101 just under the Pulaski Bridge and directly across the LIC stairs. Tasting rooms are open Fridays 5-8 and weekends noon to 5 p.m.
To taste the Randolph exclusive R1 for a limited time, be sure to check out Randolph Beer at 343 Broome Street in downtown Manhattan, and Randolph Brooklyn at 104 South Street, Brooklyn, NY!
