Atlanta, GA – Brevis and Bretthead is the latest from Monday Night Brewing Garage. A double dry-hopped imperial India Pale Ale, this beer was fermented with brettanomyces and lactobacillus brevis – hence the name.
“This beer was brewed to showcase the fruity/citrus side of hops, without getting too much sour and bitter clashing on the tongue. After discussing some different hop blends, we chose Mosaic for its blueberry aromas, Idaho 7 for peachiness, and El Dorado because it adds a great lemon candy flavor and aroma. However, these hops express themselves in very interesting ways in a sour beer. Adding brettanomyces just adds another layer to the fruity character and transforms the hop compounds into something next level,” said Tim McDonnell, Garage barrel program manager.
But the big question is, how does it taste?
“Brevis & Bretthead is a lot of fun to drink. It’s a symphony on your tongue of sour, bitter, sweet, and dank that somehow hits all the right notes. It’s like a peach and grapefruit cocktail more than it is a beer!”
