New Beers from Weyerbacher
Zotten – A Belgian-style Pale Ale with an American twist. It is brewed with pale, carahell, and wheat malts, and hopped with centennial and Cascade hops to give it a distinctly American character. The medium bodied beer has a crisp palate and moderate bitterness coupled with the fruity esters from the abbey yeast strain. It is bottle and keg conditioned so expect a tall fluffy head and a small amount of sediment. Recipe by brewer, Jeff Musselman.
Fourteen (XIV), Wheatwine – To honor 14 years of making craft beer we decided to brew a wheat wine. This unfiltered brew is made with over 50% wheat to give it a distinctly spicy character. Enjoy it now, or if you have the patience, give it some time in your cellar. When you are ready, expect to find notes of tart wheat and honey with crisp bitterness and carbonation. Recipe by Head Brewer Chris Wilson and Brewer Jeff Musselman.
Foxtrot, 6.8% – This is the latest in our small batch Brewer’s Select Series. I think that makes it the 6th (just showing off my abilities to do numbers and letters at the same time!). I am not sure that it fits any real “style”, but let’s call it a “Dark Biere de Garde”. Foxtrot will be released to the public in bottles during a special night at the brewery. See the note at the end for more information. As always, the bottles will only be sold at the brewery and will not be sent to any distributor. The draft will be shipped out the following week to distributors from sale in your favorite beers bars. If they have gotten the other beers in the series, they are likely to get this one!
Foxtrot is an exceedingly complex ale brewed with 6 types of malt, 2 hop varieties, and 1 flavorful yeast strain. This dark, unfiltered concoction has upfront notes of molasses and white pepper, a middle filled with a roastiness reminiscent of iced coffee, and a finish layered with a light fruitiness and the delicate flavor of Saaz hops.
