New Beer Release – Ommegang, Against The Grain, Prairie

Ommegang Gnomegeddon Blonde Ale

Ommegang-Gnomegeddon-Blonde-Ale-1.jpg

Ommegang ales are living beers, as exemplified by the secondary fermentation in Gnomegeddon which is accomplished with Brett yeast – a wild yeast known for its addition of complex barnyard funk to both the flavor and aroma, giving a new edge to one of our most beloved ales. The Brett yeast is slow-acting and as a result Gnomegeddon spends at least three months re fermenting in the bottle before we release it.  The yeast continues to act well into the future, so consider drinking some now and cellaring some more for late enjoyment and reflection.

 

Against the Grain Bloody Show

Against the Grain Citra Ass Down

This is a very hop forward American style IPA. Brewed with Pale, Vienna, Munich and wheat malt for a solid base for all American hops, focusing mainly on the variety “Citra.” Citra hops are a relatively new variety introduced in 2008. It was bred as a hybrid of a number of different hops, including Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, U.S. Tettnanger, East Kent Golding, Bavarian, Brewers Gold, and other unknown hops. The resulting hop, Citra, has a distinct citrusy and tropical fruit flavor and aroma. In Citra ass down we used American Columbus for bittering and 11# of Citra at the end of the boil for late kettle addition flavor and aroma. Then we added 6 more pounds Citra and 5# Centennial post fermention for aroma. Rebrewed for your tasting pleasure!

 

Against the Grain Mac FannyBaw

Truly a ground breaking beer, this Barrel aged Rauchbier was an attempt to replicate the flavors present in Islay Scotch Whiskey.  We used Munich malt as a base and added copious amounts of Beechwood and Peat smoked malt, which provides the intense smoky and earthy peat flavors found in Scotch.  Then the addition of Alderwood smoked salt lends a crisp brininess that is reminiscent of the sea air in the Islay region of Scotland.  Aged in used Angel’s Envy Bourbon Barrels to give an intense caramel, vanilla and whiskey flavor.
