Talk about connecting Central Texas, two Bell County brewpubs boast a big collaboration that cuts right to the spirit of cooperation. Their project even connects to an iconic Waco product.
Barrow and Bold Republic Brewing Companies began the project last week, with an eye toward a fall release.
Their inspiration came from a product made in Central Texas.
"There's a lot of different beer styles out there different style breweries and to be able to come together and create something new together is just fun," explained Katie Hill, of Barrow Brewing.
"This beer is inspired by a snickers bar using chocolate cocoa nuts caramel, peanut and it's gonna be a really luxurious treat," Hill went on, to say.
That's right, Barrow and Bold Republic have begun to brew what they officially call "Mermadillo 2020", but unofficially called "Snickers beer", after the candy made at the Mars Confectionary in Waco.
"Yes we hope that it'll be like drinking a liquid snickers at about 10 to 11% 07," said John Patrick Hodges, of Bold Republic Brewing.
That's 10 to 11 percent alcohol, definitely NOT a kid's drink.
"It'll be on the sweetened side. Again, we want people to have the experience of a milk chocolate candy bar," said Hodges.
