IN THE BEER WORLD
Bring on the Baptist! We’ve had a delivery of some special brews.
Quadrupel Barrel Big Bad Baptist – Epic: 12.3%abv We’ve taken barrel aging to a whole new level by aging shaved coconut, almonds, ans Blue Copper’s columbian coffee beans in whiskey barrels. Then our brewers hand-blend each batch creating the most complex and outrageous version of Big Bad Baptist we have ever made.
Big Bad Baptista – Epic: 11.7%abv Big Bad Baptista is inspired by traditional Mexican coffee, Café de Olla, which is served with cinnamon and piloncillo, an unrefined sugar. The Cinnamon adds another layer of complexity and accentuates the earthy character of Mexican Coffee, but more importantly, it captures the essence of a place and its culture.
Mexican Cake – Westbrook Brewing: 10.5%abv Imperial stout w/ cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, cinnamon, and habanero peppers. This is a perennial favorite and only comes around now and then, come grab it while we have some!
On the bright side we also have a couple special IPAs that were just delivered.
Rum Barrel Aged Imperial Pineapple Thief – Southern Pines: 9.4%abv This Imperial version of Pineapple Thief Fruited New England IPA was fermented with pineapple purée before being aged in Jamaican rum barrels. The beer was then brought out of barrels and dry hopped with Citra, Idaho 7, and Mosaic before being conditioned on coconut chips.
Back In Session Hazy IPA – New Sarum Brewing: 4%abv Back in Session Hazy IPA was developed to master the balance between a massive amount of flavor and aromatics with the need for sessional drinkability. This lower octane, more consumable, triple dry hopped juice bomb makes it possible to enjoy more than one with friends and not be late for the next day. Think of it as a reminder to every one of us that absolutely needed Spring Semester extra credit papers around this time of the year. “I think of all the education that I missed, but then my homework was never quite like this!”
