Unknown Beast – Schwarzbier
Schwarzbier – 5.5% ABV
4PK – 16oz Cans
What’s that commotion, you ask? Is it a mysterious creature lurking in the shadows? Is it the rumble of an approaching Balrog?! NOPE! It’s two sauced hobbits slamming down a second pint of “Unknown Beast” everyone’s beloved Schwarzbier!
Our journey begins with a foundation of @Riverbend Chesapeake Pilsner, complemented by a blend of specialty and roasted malts from @proximitymalt. We’ve infused it with Hallertauer Mittelfruh throughout the boil, and we’ve tossed in a generous helping of Northern Brewer in the Whirlpool. Our traditional German Lager treatment reigns supreme: a slow and cold fermentation, spunding for 100% natural carbonation, and a long slumber in a Horizontal Lagering Tank.
It all starts with tantalizing notes of roasty Cacao, sweet Hazelnut, toasted Wheat bread, and just a hint of those intriguing beans. Got me thinking about those beans…uh, right…then it wraps up with a clean, crisp, and dry finish, precisely as we intended. Don’t let the dark appearance fool you; it’s easily one of our favorite Lager offerings to date, maintaining the high level of crushability you’ve come to expect from our Chippy Boi™ Lager Program.
This delightful brew will be flowing in both taprooms starting today! Join us for a taste of the “Unknown Beast” – it’s a journey worth taking! 🍻👹
