Introducing Poetica

Hello Everyone,

This week we present to you a project many moons in the making.

After a trip to Pilsen (Czech Republic) last November with Bob, I returned with a creative drive to elevate Mary, our German-style Pilsner, to a higher state of elegance and refinement. In what will likely become an exhausting pursuit of reformation and refinement, we began lagering a portion of Mary in a single French oak puncheon in our cooler. After nearly two months, the beer was moved to tank and krausened (as is all of our lager) with fresh fermenting beer in order to provide natural carbonation. After nearly 3 months of further conditioning and slow carbonation, I am confident that we can present you with what should become a singular experience—Mary has been softened, refined, and elevated.

We will continue this pursuit through further lager experimentation. This is an immersion into origins, into simplicity, and a gift granted by obsessive singular possession.

This lyrical revision of Mary—and this ongoing pursuit—will now be known as "Poetica" and will only be available on draft.

Gratefully yours,

Shaun
