We are kicking off beer week a little early this year with the Presale of our next Barrel Aged Bottle Release, Chalcedon on Thursday Nov. 5th, 2015 at 12noon via brownpapertickets.com. ($22 per bottle +tax & fees, 3 bottle max)
This Imperial Sour Brown Ale was fermented with Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus and Pediococcus and aged in oak barrels. Upon our first taste, the chocolate notes from the malt were the clear highlight. This flavor was enhanced by the subtle vanilla notes coming from the oak barrel. Taking the lead from these developing undertones, we added single origin cocoa nibs from the Dominican Republic, which contributed a distinct red berry flavor. This 10.7% ABV beer is best when shared after dinner in a wide chalice to allow the beer to warm and layers of flavors to unfurl.
Join us for the Release Party on Tuesday Nov. 10th from 2-9pm to pick up your bottles and enjoy Chalcedon on tap, with a keep the glass special and a chocolate pairing. We hope to see you all there! Cheers.
