The restaurant will be working with partners Party by Design and Harpoon Brewery to design a garden installation on their outdoor deck creating a lush atmosphere of greenery, surrounding guests with live plants and flowers and using lanterns to illuminate the space by night. “Our goal was to transform our outdoor deck into a true green space emulating a backyard garden and hopefully extending the sense of summer as long as possible. We’re essentially taking the beer garden concept figuratively and literally,” said Sal Boscarino, Managing Partner of Pier 6.
To further enhance the beer garden installation, Harpoon Brewery will be providing an exclusive brew only available to Pier 6, the “Pan-International Gaylord” beer. With a 7.6% ABV, Harpoon describes the beer with the following language:
*Note from the Harpoon brewers: You can call it summer, you can call it a kitchen sink beer, you can call it caramel colored malt bomb if you want, but you should also call it delicious. 19 malts, 3 hops: We cleaned out our grain storage box, "The Gaylord", hence the name. Golden amber color from the caramel malts, which ranged from 10 to 150 on the Lovibond scale. To let the malt shine through, we left the hopping light, but used a blend of traditional American hops with some of our more esoteric hops: Southern Cross for bittering, Centennial for flavor, and Wakatu (a New Zealand hop) for aroma.
The Pan-International Gaylord beer will be available exclusively at Pier 6’s Garden installation until the reserves are gone. In addition, Pier 6 will be hosting 10 drafts and 20 bottled beers with a focus on small batch local breweries.
