The majority of beers we brew can be classified under four categories:
The concept behind Pernicieux is to highlight the spiciness of malted rye and complement it with a sweet, chocolate/toffee malt profile, full body, and the dark stone-fruit character of Belgian yeast. Columbus and Simcoe hopping lends an underlying citrusy balance with hints of pine while also setting it apart from a Belgian dubbel. It pours a bright chestnut color and looks quite fetching in a curvaceous, stemmed Belgian glass. For maximum deliciosity, pair it with honey baked ham or a warm slice of carrot cake. We’ll be releasing it every year in November as a companion for brisk, late-autumn weather and Holiday drinking season, and this year it will be available in bombers for the first time. Occasionally, a wood-aged version we call Big Pern will pop up, so that’s something to look forward to.
In case you missed it, last week we announced the return of La Grippe. You can still catch this one, even if you've had the shot. (Full disclosure: we're not doctors.)
As they roll through, we will give you a preview of what to expect in the way of beer releases. In no way are we saying we’ll actually meet your expectations–just set them. If this sounds good to you, you should probably reevaluate every important relationship in your life. Like, now.
