ECLIPTIC/21ST AMENDMENT MEET & DRINK!
Monday, September 1, 2014
“Astro 21” was brewed with Crisp Maris Otter pale malt and a touch of honey and crystal malt to give the beer a nice orange color. The beer has a biscuit character with caramel sweetness. Hopped with Nugget and Styrian Golding hops for a pleasant bitterness and a nice lime-orange hop flavor. The dry hopping melds with the Belgian yeast spiciness. Crisp and refreshing for the end of Summer.
-6.5% ABV & 38 IBUs
Shaun tells us how the collaboration came together:
As with most, it was over a beer and John said to Shaun, “Hey we should do a collaboration.” Music to my ears as John and I love doing collaborations. I first met John way back in the day before I was involved in the brewing industry at an event during the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado. It was at a cigar and beer event at Wynkoop Brewery when John was working at Full Sail. I walked up to John and Full Sail’s Brewmaster, Jamie Emmerson and they said hello to me and handed me a a cigar and I chatted with them for a bit. Very friendly and just what you would expect in this collaborative craft beer environment.
Don’t miss your chance to try this exciting new beer with the brewer’s themselves!Tweet this
