Evolution of IPA 1840-2000 Box Set
Original IPA circa 1840 (for Laika)
Petite Blueberry Sour (for Albert King)
Petite Blueberry Sour (for Albert King) 5.9% ABV. Fermented with 100% wild culture from the Asheville air and aged on the second use fruit from our barrel aged Blueberry Sour.
While not as jammy and complex as our Blueberry Sour, this still has loads of fruit and yeast character. Perfect for upcoming summer bbqs or get togethers.
Blueberry Sour (for Howlin Wolf)
Blueberry Sour (for Howlin Wolf) 6.3% ABV. We blended select 2 year old barrels of sour beer fermented with 100% wild yeast from the Asheville air and aged it on a ridiculous 4+ pounds of blueberries per gallon.
Deep purple color with a beautiful pink foam, refined acidity with a hint of Brett funk. The blueberry character is just insane!
Traditional English Barleywine (for Andre the Giant)
Traditional English Barleywine (for Andre the Giant) 10% ABV. A spotlight for traditional English Maris Otter malt and a long 6 hour boil. Intense flavors of caramel and biscuity malt. Where this beer will shine is with aging, it will be fire in 2-4 years and has possibility for a decade of cellaring…or just drink it now you savages..
Mocha Imperial Stout (for SunnO))))
Winter Warmer (for George Orwell)
First new beer drop of 2021: Winter Warmer (for George Orwell) 9% ABV. What this beer REALLY is, is what was known in the early 1800s as a Burton Ale: a dark, strong, slightly sweet ale. Brewed not with dark roasted malts like porter and stout but with dark caramelized sugar syrups.
The town of Burton in England eventually became the hotbed of the new pale ales and the old style of dark strong ales quietly vanished except around wintertime when small casks would arrive to serve on the back bar. The classic English beer Fuller’s ESB used to be called Old Burton back in the day.
This beer is brewed with Maris Otter pale malt and two types of extra dark sugar syrups. Tastes like sugar daddies, tootsie rolls, dark fruit. Deadly drinkable for the 9% ABV.
