2015 Fellowship Beers Included:
Greybeard: This barrel-aged stock old ale is conditioned with two different Brattanomyces yeast strains. A style not widely known in this part of the world, it’s origins date back several hundred years to Burton-on-Trent, England’s most famous brewing region. Greybeard is 8% abv with a complex malty foundation and distinct Brett aroma and flavour.
Little Red One: This West Coast Sour with black currants from the Fraser Valley, has been barrel-aged for over a year and is partially bottle conditioned. The currants lend berry character but with a dry herbal note (rather than sweetness) – kind of like walking on ground cover herbs on a very hot, dry summer day. There are aromas and flavours of oak, black tea, and tobacco.
Nocturnum Galactica: Based originally on our Nocturnum Dark IPA, Nocturnum Galactica spent over a year in red wine barrels with Brettanomyces Claussenii. As it aged we introduced Australian Galaxy as a barrel dry hop. The brett dominates this beer with an up front sweet funk and the Galaxy enhances with an overall tropical character.
Boris Arabica: This beer began with Boris, our much-loved Russian Imperial Stout. Instead of Bourbon barrels we tucked it away for a year in a mix of French and American oak red wine barrels. Then we set about blending small amounts of it with different coffee varieties until we settled on a blend of Arabica beans we feel complements and enhances this big beer. Boris was actually used to make a huge batch of cold brew.
