Gandhi-Bot Will Reincarnate with New Name, New Can, Yet Keep Same Soul

23 Jan

Reincarnation, according to Buddhists and Hindus is not an end to life, but rather a new chance, a new shot, a new experience. Soul cannot die, soul is passed on, takes new forms, but essentially remains. And, with this same spirit (pun definitely intended), we sadly need to share that Gandhi-Bot has passed away. Yet, with its passing, the soul of that Double India Pale Ale lives on and will take a new form, in a new can, with a new name. In name, different; in essence, the same.

Much Ado A-bot Gandhi: the CT Beer that’s Brewing Up Controversy

One of two cans left in the Del Ferraro household.

While some of you were at work, taking care of the kids, or chillaxin’ this past vacation, Dan set out on mission: to find some elusive CT-based brews that were just sent from the brewery, namely two from Woodbridge-based New England Brewing Company. During this time they not only released bottles of their Imperial Stout Trooper, but also one of Beer Advocate’s most highly-rated Double IPAs, Gandhi-Bot.

Coalhouse New England Brewing Dinner Diners

There are lots of surreal moments that we remember. One of the most recent was rolling up to Coalhouse Pizza on Monday and hearing the DJ on 95.9 talk about the dinner we were headed to. WHAT? A shout out to Coalhouse Pizza and New England Brewing coming together to raise vital funds for the Bennett Cancer Center! Hours later, after a sprawling, decadent, and pourworthy dinner, attendees had raised a total of $1,200!

Bring It: New England Brewing Co. Fest 2014 @ Little Pub

Little Pub NEBCO Fest 2014

Dumb snowstorm.  We don’t even know what the ridiculous name of this past storm was (Merlin? Lucius? Voldemort?), but we know that it sucked mainly because it hit the pause button on NEBCO Fest at Little Pub in Ridgefield.  But, chill…it was just the pause button.  There’s still plenty of New England Brewing Company brews available…and they’ve been aging for an extra day!  We bet you can taste that added depth that the day put in.
