If you haven’t yet heard, we are officially working with Oliver Ales and Pratt St. Ale House in Baltimore on a collaboration brew! We’re going to get together and brew a 7 bbl batch of a special beer that will be exclusive to Punk’s, Pratt St., and a few other select spots in the area. We’ll be releasing this batch in both keg format and cask format for all of you “real ale” folks out there.
The plan is to do an American style IPA around 6.5% abv. It will be bittered with Chinook and Cascade hops, then finished and dry hopped with whole leaf Cascade hops. Cascade hops are best known from their use in Sierra Nevada Pale ale and they’ll give our beer a great hop aroma and flavor.
Our collective goal is to have this beer ready for consumption by mid May and we’ll be throwing a bad ass release party at Punk’s with a dry hopped cask, some cool giveaways, and happy hour prices all night! You can’t beat that. Stay tuned for more details and some pictures from brew day when it arrives.
Here is a nice shot of some Cascade hops on the vine.
