Can Releases Coming in October
Saison in the Abyss – 6.7% ABV
A collaboration with Hell Bomb Tattoo. A French Saison that is anything but traditional. Pale in color, refreshingly tart in flavor, thirst quenchingly dry, and satisfyingly estery and hoppy.
Mass Hysteria Rye – 8% ABV
This deep red colored rye ale is hopped with Columbus and Cascade. A large portion of the malt bill is rye malt. This gives the beer a hint of spiciness with a creamy mouthfeel. The process of dry hopping this ale brings out the juicy citrus aromatics. Thus creating “Mass Hysteria” with every sip.
Catherine the III Vertical Release – 2016, 2017, 2018 – 9.5% ABV
This will be released in six packs with two cans from each year. The Catherine III is an imperial stout aged in wood with notes of chocolate, roasted coffee, and distant smoke. The 2016 was aged in our oak foeder that was treated with Leopold Bros small batch whiskey. The 2017 was aged in George Dickel Rye Whiskey barrels and the 2018 was aged in George Dickel Rye whiskey barrels with coffee and Madagascar vanilla beans.
