The Maine Edge publishes UMaine release on spruce pale ale project

The Maine Edge carried a University of Maine news release about a partnership between faculty in the School of Forest Resources at UMaine, Black Bear Brewing Company and Marsh Island Brewing to create a pale ale using spruce tips. The brew, named “Green Growth,” is made with tips from Norway spruce trees from UMaine’s Dwight B. Demeritt Forest. The ale will be sold at both breweries for the Fourth of July, and $1 from each pint will be donated to support the construction of a new sugar house in the forest, the release states.
