Saint Arnold Army Newsletter

Dear Saint Arnold’s Army:

 

It’s not 100 degrees outside yet, but now’s the time to pull out your tie dye t-shirt – Summer Pils season is here. You’ll be seeing it replace Spring Bock around town in grocery stores and bars.

 

Our newly released Icon Blue – the first porter we’ve brewed – is also flowing around town, along with our newest year round release…

 

Boiler Room Berliner Weisse is Now Available 

Boiler Room Berliner Weisse – our first new year round release in over two years – began its life as something of a mishap.

During the initial stages of a batch of Fancy Lawnmower, nobody had noticed that half of the malt ended up on the floor rather than in the mill. The result was 136 barrels of half strength wort, and brewer Stephen had two choices: dump it all or pull ten gallons off and see if he could make something out of it.

He put the ten gallons into a carboy, topped it off with a bottle of funky Belgian beer known to have lots of bacteria in it and stuck it in our boiler room to sour for a couple of days. After that, he boiled it, let it ferment normally and the result was a very interesting beer. Stephen did several subsequent test brews and developed a final recipe using 60% wheat.

All in all, Boiler Room is a light bodied but surprisingly flavorful sour wheat beer. The nose of the beer has a light Hersbrucker hop note and a distinct funkiness. The taste is sweet malt quickly going into a tart body and finish. The sour and malt flavors balance well all the way through creating a very refreshing beverage, akin to drinking a tart lemonade or limeade. For a beer with just over 3.5%, it creates a big experience for the palate.

Learn all about Boiler Room Berliner Weisse here, and look for it on tap in bars and restaurants and in 22 oz bomber bottles at your favorite stores.
