Batch #3 In The Fermenter

Great brew session today, with our #3 brewing (Christmas Duck),  Visitors today included: Ken and Daniel, who are starting a new brewery in the very early stages (Tacoma), Clint, with Malt & Vine (Redmond) - talked about potential distribution of Foggy Noggin Beers, and my good friend Chris.  Matthew came mid-way thru the session to help clean the kettles.

  1. Once again, I was not to be disappointed as I was fortunate enough to sample a growler of the Christmas Duck (that’s my preferred sampler size) from test batch #3. This beer truly follows its English Style Porter lineage with a hint of fruity sweetness, chocolate and the traditional dry roasted finish. I typically favor Porters and Stouts myself, but those who normally shy away from this style will be pleasantly surprised with the Duck in comparison with its American cousins (Deschutes, Sierra Nevada, Rogue, Anchor, etc.), which can have a more hoppy, smoky and/or burnt suggestion offset with chocolate or coffee (depending on the brewery). Opening day for Foggy Noggin Brewing can’t come soon enough as Jimmy J has prepared two great English Style Ales, the Beav and the Duck, for all to enjoy. Cheers! SB
