This weekend is our May release, and with that it’s time to share details on the final beer coming for spring!
When we brewed Touch of Brett: Galaxy , most of the batch went into neutral French Oak barrels to age, but we took a small portion of that batch and barreled it down into Old Tom gin barrels for nearly nine months.
The beer is the same dry French-style saison primarily fermented with a blend of Brettanomyces as is usual for the Touch of Brett series, but it differs from Touch of Brett: Galaxy in the flavors of citrus, juniper and pepper-like notes that it picked up from the barrels. The beer finishes crisp and dry with a great aroma of the gin botanicals.
Touch of Brett: Old Tom is our club only beer for the quarter, meaning we only have the small batch available for purchase in bottles to our Blender’s Circle members. If you want to get your hands on this beer, it’s not too late to sign up for our membership and get your hands on all five releases this time around!
