Smuttlabs: Brett & I returns!

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.

Can you give us an idea of how many bottles will be available Saturday?

Any way to find out where the kegs will be tapped?

Thank you, everyone who stopped by Towle Farm yesterday for our Smuttlabs Brett & I release. For those of you who didn't make it, we have good news and bad news.
First the bad: all available bottles were snapped up yesterday.
Now the good: we'll brew more as soon as we can and release more bottles next time.

PaulB, I believe we have a list, but I'm not sure it's complete. Any place in particular you're curious about?

Hi guys, had or have all the other Smuttlabs releases so far except Brett & I. Any idea where I may find an establishment serving it? Either in the southwestern NH area, Nashua, Amherst. Or I'm also in north-central MA. Ayer, Groton, Leominster general area. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Thank you for the kind words of encouragement, Craig. There are only two kegs headed to your part of the state. One is going to Cask & Vine in Derry and Biederman's Deli in Plymouth. They'll ship from Smuttynose next week, but that's as far as we know. You'll need to check with those fine establishments to see when they'll be tapping them.

I hope you get some of that good Brett & I funk in your life!
