Thanks Given...

On November 19th, 2011 we will be releasing some of my favorite beers thus far produced at Hill Farmstead.  Dan and I spent a significant portion of our spring brewing beer destined entirely for oak barrels.  One of these beers was my conception of the "Imperialized" version of our winter porter, Twilight of the Idols.   We brewed Birth of Tragedy way back, 6 months ago, and aged it in Blantons, Buffalo Trace, and Elijah Craig bourbon barrels.


Also, over the last few months, we have been joined by some of our closest friends in the brewing world - Mikkel Bjergsø of Mikkeller, and Tim/Doug/and Joey from Cigar City Brewing Company.

With Mikkel, we constructed a unique Imperial Stout/Porter with 1,000 ICUS (international citrus units)  of Orange.  Hopped with Galaxy and Citra - bottle conditioned - and more than 10% abv.  We also redesigned our label concept for this special beer - Alex Peltz, best friend and graphic designer, reworked our original concept (which was designed by Søren Varming of Copenhagen) and Natalya Zahn (http://www.natalya.com/), another childhood friend, provided a profile sketch to mimic Mikkel's already brilliant logo.


With Tim, Doug, and Joey we constructed an Imperial Pale Ale ("Nor") that would be the antithesis of Or (Imperial Black IPA brewed at Cigar City last September).  We used an abundance of Motueka, Cascade, and Simcoe Hops - and chose to use some rice syrup solids in the kettle and toasted rice flakes in the mash.  Words of Wisdom: never use Rice Syrup Solids.  You will thank me later.   9.2% abv. 170 theoretical ibus.



We will also be releasing Civil Disobedience #3 - a blend of barrel aged Arthur and barrel aged Vera Mae.  6.5% abv.

Hope to see you all on Saturday at 12pm.  I'll be pouring glasses of all of the above beers for 5$ - bring your own Hill Farmstead stemware.  No bottle limits on Daybreak and Tragedy.  Growler fills of Nor and Twilight....
