Heads up, funky beer junkies!
Brett & I, the newest Smuttlabs release is packaged and ready to go.
We'll be releasing bottles at the Towle Farm brewery on Saturday, August 2 at 11am. The crown-finished, 375ml bottles are $12 each and there is no bottle limit. There are 24 cases, which maths into 288 bottles. We won't be filling growlers with Brett & I, due to the limited amount of beer we have.
If you don't live near the brewery, fret not. Kegs will begin shipping to wholesalers in CT, DC, IL, MA, MD, ME, NC, NH, NY, PA,VA, and VT on Monday, August 4.
What is Brett & I? Brett & I is a 6%, barrel-aged, golden beer that takes 13 months to make. After an initial fermentation with our house Trappist ale yeast, the beer is transferred to red wine barrels where it ages with a Brettanomyces Bruxellensis, a yeast first discovered in British beers. "Brett Brux" adds the slightly sour, earthy accent which makes Brett & I such a rare treat.
We've released Brett & I twice in the past, which means some of you have been waiting patiently for this next release. We hope you enjoy this release too.
