Twisted Pine Brewing’s West Bound Braggot Wins Again
Boulder, CO – Judges at the 2013 Great American Beer Festival® awarded Twisted Pine Brewing Company with a medal for West Bound Braggot for the second year in a row last weekend. The brewery was presented with a bronze medal in the Specialty Honey Beer category, following up on last year’s gold medal, and announced plans today to brew more of the acclaimed ale soon.
Medal-winner for second straight year will be available again soon
A unique spin on the medieval style, West Bound utilizes Tasmanian pepper berries and Buddha’s Hand citrus along with orange blossom honey in the kettle, and is fermented with a special strain of Belgian farmhouse yeast. The resulting elixir is deceptively light on the palate for a beer of 8.5% ABV, and finishes dry and crisp with a tantalizing mélange of citrus and pepper, plus an exotic swirl of farmhouse esters and Citra hops.
Twisted Pine looks to release the beer in a couple months, but President Bob Baile explains that “West Bound will be released whenever it tastes exactly like it should because these types of stronger beers tend to benefit from a little extra maturity.” The prized braggot will be packaged in draft only and made available in limited quantities throughout the brewery’s distribution range.
