Chimuwaku means teamwork – in this case, it mainly refers to the collaboration between Common Ground and Newcastle’s Method Brewing.
But there’s also teamwork between brewers and artists. The artwork on the can is by Japanese tattoo artist Horizaru. Read the can’s label to learn about the artwork’s poetic inspiration, or ask Jimmy at Milton Common if you want to see some of Horizaru’s tattoo art firsthand.
And, of course, there’s the teamwork between beer and fruit: hoppy NEIPA and tangy yuzu. The golden glow gives off a gentle whiff of clean citrus and bright green Sicilian olives (I know that sounds weird but those olives are mild and fruity and really friggin’ delicious). On the tongue a mandarin character leads into softer citrus, perhaps orange juice with just a little mango nectar mixed in. And the whole while it’s hard to ignore how ridiculously soft and fluffy this beer is – it’s like drinking the inside of a teddy bear.
