Local Tattoo Shop and Brewery Team Up for ‘India Ink Pale Ale’
A collaboration of two Hudson Valley businesses has resulted in a limited release craft beer.
Graceland Tattoo and Sloop Brewing Company have joined forces to produce what they are describing as a Black IPA. The India Ink Pale Ale is a collaboration between the two businesses and will be unveiled during a special event on February 18 at County Faire in the Village of Wappingers Falls.
During the event customers will be able to try the limited edition beer and even get themselves tattooed. Adam Lauricella from Graceland Tattoo says he'll be on hand making some small custom tattoos for those who want to mark the occasion.
As for the beer, Sloop's brewmaster Justin Taylor says India Ink has a tropical aroma with a citrusy, pine flavor. There's a hint of roast from the dark grain used to give the IPA the appearance of black tattoo ink, another nod to the collaboration with Graceland.
If you want to try the beer for yourself, County Faire is located on Main Street in the Village of Wappingers Falls. The release party starts at 7pm on February 18.
