We are delighted to announce an exciting new collaboration with Lake Monster Brewing!
The local Saint Paul brewery has created a limited-edition beer in our honor — the Art Shanty Chocolate Porter — which will be available at the Lake Monster taproom, in bars, and at liquor stores beginning in December as six-pack cans. A portion of each sale of Art Shanty Chocolate Porter will benefit Art Shanty Projects.
“When thinking about a beer for the Art Shanty Projects, we wanted to evoke the feeling of drinking hot chocolate after coming in from the cold, without making a beer that was overly sweet or filling,” says Lake Monster Brewmaster Matt Lange. “Adding the raw chocolate to a classic porter was the perfect vehicle for these flavors.”
We’re grateful to have this collaboration with Lake Monster – of course they’re the perfect partner thematically, and in terms of their community spirit. We’re especially delighted by this custom beer that supports and celebrates our unique artistic programming. This is a big deal for everyone involved!
As a sponsor, Lake Monster will also be supporting Art Shanty Projects by hosting events including an artist send-off party on January 2 (mark your calendars!), offering taproom specials to Art Shanty Projects members (join our membership program today to get these excellent perks!), and selling co-branded merchandise with shared profits.
We extend many, many thanks to Lake Monster for their enthusiasm and support — and we hope everyone will go out and try some Art Shanty Chocolate Porter!
