Great Northern Brewing Co. is working with Kyle Hollingsworth, keyboardist for the String Cheese Incident and member of the aptly named Kyle Hollingsworth Band, to create a new beer for the upcoming outdoor concert series on Aug. 4 and 5 in Whitefish.
Hollingsworth, who is a homebrewer himself, helped Great Northern come up with a pale ale infused with earl grey tea leaves, which gives the beer a “distinct herbal citrus aroma and a crisp finish.” Great Northern is brewing a 20-barrel batch for the concert series, but if you can’t make it you can get the recipe here.
The Great Northern Outdoor Concert Series takes place Aug. 4 and 5 in Whitefish. Keller Williams will headline the show on Aug. 4 and the Kyle Hollingsworth Band will headline Aug. 5. Doors open at 2 p.m. each day and the headliners are slated to take the stage at 7 p.m.
Here’s a video on the collaboration. Just to warn you, it’s a little cheesy (pun intended):
