Today we are drinking the Deep River Brewing/Trophy Brewing collaboration brew Carpetbagger, a Double IPA which comes in at a wonderful 9.7% ABV. Collaborations between breweries are a great sign of the true spirit of the NC Beer Community where the name of the game for brewers and professionals is cooperation and support instead of competition and backbiting or undercutting the other guy who happens to be in the business of making the same great products you do. This Trophy/Deep River collaboration also brings in another great partner from the NC beer scene as it is dry hopped with hops from Farm Boy Farms in Pittsboro. How could these two great local breweries not produce a great beer when they worked together!
