SanTan Brewing Wants To Accelerate Your Taste Buds With Negro Nitron
Others have done it, but never quite like this – nitrogen forced brews add a depth of flavor and full body excitement. SanTan Brewing Company has developed a special blend of Arizona’s first nitrogenated black IPA, Negro Nitron.
Negro Nitron was brewed with a special malt product called Midnight Wheat by Briess Malting Company’s. Midnight Wheat offers a deeply charred black roast with ruby red hues for a delicious flavor combination. SanTan Brewing Company selected the wheat based malt to eliminate the sharp and acrid characteristics that often come from the husks in barley based malt.
The wheat malt used in brewing Nitro Negro pairs perfectly with Summit hops – known for its low co-humolene content which produces very clean hop bitterness without the lingering oiliness. Negro Nitron is also dry-hopped with Cascade – a piney resin aromatic yeast.
Try Negro Nitron in SanTan Brewing Company’s Mole Beer Can Chicken developed by Chef Dennis Martinez. The new brew also pairs well with wild boar chili and a New York strip covered in blue cheese. Test your culinary skills at home with Martinez own Mole Beer Can Chicken rub recipe. This rub can be used with any of your favorite canned beer chicken recipes, pair it with your favorite SanTan Brewing Company craft beer.
