Wawa and 2SP Brewing Company in Aston are continuing a tradition of releasing three limited-edition stouts for the holiday season, according to a report from WooderIce.com.
The two entities tied in the release with the presentation of a $10,000 check to Philabundance.
“It’s always great to partner with our friends at 2SP to bring cheer to our local friends and neighbors with holiday-inspired beers, but this year is even more meaningful with the contribution made to Philabundance,” said Mike Sherlock, Chief Product Marketing Officer at Wawa.
This is the fourth year Wawa’s Michael McLaughlin, Manager of Concept Development, and 2SP Head Brewer Bob Barrar have collaborated.
This season, the two have a new brew: Winter Reserve Mocha Latte Stout, a blend of cocoa nibs, vanilla, and lactose, with coffee flavors from Wawa’s Winter Reserve Roast.
Returning is Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Coffee Stout, a beer made with Wawa’s Winter Reserve, aged nine months in bourbon barrels.
The third selection, Rum Barrel-Aged Coffee Stout, is aged nine months in Jamaican Rum barrels.
