And first on that Good Times Train is another dang ol’ new beer: Smaltster! See, every now and then we get all misty-eyed about all the cool local maltsters that we get to work with and we get a good-old-fashioned hankerin’ to make somethin’ malty to show off all the good stuff they make, so we did! We did that thing I just said! And this time around that takes the form of a lightly bready, slightly sweet, modestly hoppy, all around easy-drinkin’ good-time-havin’ fun-for-all lil' English-style pale ale! And it’s on tap right now so you should come try it!
See, we been foolin' around with some wild/funky/mixed fermentation beers for a bit of a while now and since we did things the old fashioned (i.e. extremely time consuming) way as is our wont, we didn't have nothin' to show for it until now but now we do and it's nigh-on high time we shared the spoils! So. Some details.
"Critters" is what we're callin' our new mixed-fermentation series that we'll be rollin' out over the course of the coming months! Each release in the series will be a different beer or blend, and super small batch (like maybe four cases worth of beer and maybe a little bit on tap), so once we put them suckers out there we highly suggest you come get while the gettin' is good!
The first three releases will include:
- Critters I: Grisette aged in wheat whiskey barrels with strawberry and brettanomyces, 5.2%
- Critters II: Mixed fermentation red ale aged in rye barrels with brettanomyces, 6.5%
- Critters III: Grisette aged in rye barrels with blackberry, peach, and brettanomyces, 5.2%
