CPP Names Latest Beer After Namesakes of The Collins College

Collins Cream Ale

Innovation Brew Works released the Collins Cream Ale this year, a beer brewed with pale ale, honey malt and rolled oats.

According to Richard Thompson, head brewer at Innovation Brew Works, the new brew is a classic cream ale that is brilliantly clear with a creamy white head.

“We added real Madagascar vanilla beans to give this subtly sweet beer a vanilla finish,” explains Richard.

Collins Cream Ale was named after prominent figures of Cal Poly Pomona: Jim and Carol Collins, namesakes of the Collins College of Hospitality Management.

The Collins' are benefactors for the college, and in 2013, pledged to match $5 million toward the construction a new building. The new Collins College building was completed in 2015, and received GOLD LEED Certification from the United States Green Building Council.
