Well, the time has finally arrived. After months of dealing with a seemingly never ending stream of roadblocks and red tape, we are finally able to release our Mezcal barrel aged braggot that we’re calling Devil’s Footprint!
For the uninitiated, a braggot is a hybrid of beer and mead. Our version started as a light ale to which we added a large addition of honey. The resulting braggot clocks in at 10.5% ABV and is very pale in color and was aged for several months in Mexican Mezcal barrels, giving it a complex yet very distinct tequila-like flavor with a hint of smokiness and wood. After conditioning, the beer packaged in 16oz capped bottles and will be available for retail sale in our taproom starting today (Wed. 12/16/2015). A very limited amount of Devil’s Footprint was produced and we expect it to sell very swiftly… and once it’s gone, it’s gone.
Devil’s Footprint is very lightly carbonated and should be served chilled, but not ice cold.
