We have 3 Collaborations to share and one beer from our own Cellar Series for this round of specialty releases. We’ll be tasting a fruited sour, a country lager, a hazy triple IPA and a Munich Dunkel.
Here’s a brief summary of the flavor profiles:
Birds of a Feather – Collaboration with Sankofa Brewing, DC – This fruited sour was brewed with millet from Grouse Malt House, hit with loads of mango & passion fruit before being conditioned on in-house toasted coconut. Big notes of passion fruit on the nose, with sweet & mellow coconut balancing a pleasantly puckering tartness. 6.6% abv.
Shuriken – Collaboration with Hopstix Brewpub, Chamblee, GA – This easy drinking Franconian style country lager was brewed with Chit and Rye malt from Riverbend Malt House in Asheville, NC. Warm toasty bread with a slightly earthy spice builds a clean and crisp malt backbone. Additions of Tettnang in the boil and Styrian Cardinal at whirlpool and also a light dry hop give off notes of lime zest, jasmine, a touch of pineapple, strawberry, along with some slightly savory dill, 5.5% abv.
First and Last – Collaboration with Thompson Island Brewing Co., Rehoboth Beach, DE – Triple IPA was brewed with a simple grist loaded up with White Wheat and Flaked Oats, and dosed with Sabro Incognito in the whirlpool, providing a soft, tropical base from the hop character. We fermented it with Omega Yeast’s Cosmic Punch thiolizing yeast, and dry hopped with Simcoe and Cascade, creating a juicy hop driven yeast character reminiscent of fresh oranges and mango, and then layered on a heavy dose of Mosaic and Sabro over two more dry hops, resulting in big notes of peaches, lime, coconut, and sweet lychee. Deceptively drinkable. 9.5% abv.
Cellar Series – Munich Dunkel – 5.2 abv. – A dark lager with a deep malt backbone, flavors of graham crackers, well toasted bread, chewy toffee, slight sweet chocolate, clean crisp backend finish, with a balancing slight hop bitterness hitting mid palate.
We decided to share 2 of our most popular flagships and our 2 newest members of the lineup. We’ll be tasting a saison, an IPA, a sour beer and an American Lager.
Here’s a brief summary of the flavor profiles you can look forward to:
Peppercorn Saison – a Farmhouse Ale conditioned with Green, White and Pink Peppercorns- 6.5% ABV –
Slightly sweet fruity nose, hints of grass and coriander, smooth underlying bitterness, clean dry finish, smooth lingering citrus notes.
Ghost – India Pale Ale – A northeastern style IPA – 5.9% ABV – Bright, light, citrusy and crisp with a lingering hop bitterness. Featuring CTZ, Amarillo, Citra & Simcoe hops.
Can’t You See the Sunshine – Tart Farmhouse Ale with Lime – This tart farmhouse ale with lime is a new member of our core lineup for spring and summer. Can’t You See the Sunshine is brewed in two steps to give it just a little bit of tartness and a brite lime finish. There isn’t a more perfect beer for sitting on the porch enjoying the sunshine. 4.8% abv.
Chillum Lite – American Lager – Also a new member of the core lineup – Our take on the classic American Light Lager. Brewed with Flaked Corn and Flaked Rice, and very lightly hopped with Tettnang in the boil, this 4.7% abv crusher of a beer is crisp, clean, and exceedingly drinkable.
