"Collier Stout" Beer Honors Slain MIT Officer Sean Collier
Sean Collier, the MIT police officer killed in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, will be honored with a special craft beer. "Collier Stout," co-brewed by Cambridge Brewing Company and Rocky Mountain Brewery in Colorado Springs, will be a dry Irish stout, ready by mid-June.
Phil Bannatyne, the owner of Cambridge Brewing, told radio station WBUR, "This seemed something that was personal, specific to Kendall Square in many ways ... You want to help when this stuff happens and we just needed an avenue for that, and this was right up our alley."
Cambridge Brewing plans to sell the brew for $5.50, with $1 going to the Jimmy Fund, a nonprofit that supports cancer care and research, to which Collier regularly contributed.
