Foggy Noggin Brewing House Ale Release - Saturday February 15th (noon-4pm)

Foggy Noggin Brewing is announcing a new beer program - our House Ale - perhaps the most unique ale on the market.

Foggy Noggin Brewing House Ale
Oak Barrel Fermented





House Ale
Perhaps the most unique ale on the market.  Each 1/2BBL batch is fermented in Hungarian Oak barrels with a perpetual yeast, making each batch unlike any other. Ready to drink now and a good beer to age.

Malts: Maris Otter, Amber, Biscuit, Crystal 45
Hops: Brewers Gold, Fuggles, Goldings

SRM: 11
IBU: 57
ABV: 6.3%

We had a Hungarian Oak barrel made to our specifications, with oak sourced from the Zemplen Forrest - some of the most sought after wood in the world.  Using an ale yeast strain yeast that works best when it is able to not only top ferment, but also from all portions of the fermenter - a whole new character is brought to life.  Keeping this yeast perpetual, will allow each 1/2BBL batch to be unique and ever-evolving. 

Each 1/2BBL batch is bottled and marked with the batch #.  Approximately 80 bottles per batch make this exclusive, rare and one you will want to seek out.

Feb 15th, Foggy Noggin Brewing is releasing the first 3 batches in our tasting room, every 2 weeks another batch will be released.  This very limited beer is only available in our tasting room.
