Heavy Seas Releases Red Sky at Morning Beginning July
(Baltimore,MD) – Heavy Seas Beer happily announces their latest new beer of 2015, Red Sky at Night. This marks another beer from their experimental barrel program. Read on for Heavy Seas description of the beer along with ingredient bill and more.
According to our Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard, “Red Sky at Night has been a popular seasonal product for us for a few years now. And, while we do love it, we wanted to explore its “potential” by incorporating it into our “Uncharted Waters” program. We have never done a white wine barrel-aged beer before, but the core flavors of Red Sky at Night seemed like they would be a good fit for doing so – with a few tweaks, of course. Red Sky at Morning is a stronger beer than Red Sky at Night. We added a higher percentage of sugar to the boil, we increased the hop flavor slightly, and we employed a different yeast strain that produced spicier esters. All in all, we’ve retained the soul of Red Sky at Night, which is the sailor’s delight, while adding flavor and aroma dimensions in a 10% ABV version that definitely fits the bill of Red Sky at Morning – sailor take warning.”
