Ex Novo, Great Notion and Lombard House’s “The Gang Makes A Lager”

Ex Novo Brewing has partnered with Great Notion Brewing and Lombard House on a new beer called The Gang Makes A Lager. The new limited release celebrates their mutual Philly fandom (Ex Novo’s brewers Nick & Rubbo, Great Notion’s Paul, and Lombard House’s Brian are all avid Eagles fans) and will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the can sales to the Chris Long Foundation. The Gang Makes A Lager will be released Friday, September 6th at Lombard House in N. Portland’s St. Johns neighborhood.

More from a press release:

Chris Long is a former Philadelphia Eagles player, and has founded this amazing organization. A little more about the Foundation from their website:

“We believe borders do not limit caring about our fellow neighbors. We engage in both international and domestic programs focused around clean water, military appreciation, homelessness and youth. Our programs strive to generate impactful results by creating opportunities and providing resources, financial support and meaningful experiences to those we serve.”

“The Gang Makes a Lager” is a Mexican-style lager brewed with Motueka hops and key lime, and will be released in cans and on draft.

The beer will release at Lombard House exclusively on Friday, September 6th, and will then release at Great Notion and Ex Novo pubs on Saturday, September 7th.
